    • John was in New England by 5 Nov 1638 when he was a proprietor of Marshfield.

      From Elizabeth Barker’s Barker Genealogy:
      John Barker, with his brother Robert, were among the early adventurers that arrived in Plymouth, Mass. Having some means they set out from the Plymouth Colony to make homes for themselvers, going by boat along the coast until they came to the North River. Sailing down this, they reached what is now that part of Pembrook, Mass. known as Herringbrook.
      John lived in that part of Plymouth wich was set off in 1637 as Duxbury. He was a brickmason and agreed to teach wm. Barden the trade of bricklayer, at the end of his time giving him (Wm.) “20 bushels of corn, 2 suits of apparel and an ewe goat’s lamb.”
      In 1638 he moved to Marshfield, Mass. and bought a ferry at Jones River, where he convenanted to keep it “at two pence a person until a bridge is built.” In 1643 he was a member of the marshfield Military Co. under Lt. Nathaniel Thomas. In 1648 he had some disagreement with a a neighbor about a boundary line. The Court requested John Alden and Myles Standish to “set at rights such differences as are betwixt them.”
      On June 5, 1651 he was made a freeman and on 12-14-1652, was drowned at his ferry, leaving an estate of £131. [2, 3]
