Tracing the disparate ancestries of four great families

Tree: Barker

Tree Name  Barker 
Description  Not so simple working class folk, the Barkers came to Macclesfield from Leeds via Manchester. The Dobsons and Burgesses streamed in to "Silk Town" from Staffordshire and rural Cheshire. Some perished on the fields of Flanders, others climbed the ladder to become publicans, pawnbrokers, coal merchants and printers.
