Barker Genealogy & History

Barker can be either an English or French occupational surname, with different derivations for each. The English derivation from Old English "beorc" and Middle English "bark" (meaning "to tan") signifies tanners as well as barkers (stripping treebark for tanning). Alternatively, the French name derivation from Old French "berchier" translates to "a shepherd". Thus there are numerous spellings in Barker genealogy, including Barka, Barkes, Bercher, Le Barkere. The family motto of "fide sed cui vide" means "trust, but be careful whom". In England, the Barker family seat (feudal manor) in Cambridgeshire existed from ancient times; the earliest immigrant to America was in 1620.
