The Barker Name

According to the introduction in the Barker Genealogy by Elizabeth Frye Barker, "The name BARKER is supposed to come from the Anglo-Saxon word Beorc or from the Anglo-French word Berquier, meaning Shepherd, some say the first to use the name was a tanner and used the bark of trees in his trade. Variations of the name are Le Barkere; Barke; Barka and Barkar." Read/print the scanned pages.
