Barker wills within about 10 miles of Rotherham, Yorkshire
Prerogative & Exchequer Court of York
Index from Origins.net index, 1688-1858
August to October 2012
By Greg Ramstedt
[I am doing an area search around Rotherham to see if there is any trace of the family from which Thomas Barker (ca. 1760—1802), plumber and glazier of Rotherham may have come. I am also hoping to find the family that Isaac Barker ( --1809), butcher, of Rotherham originated. I don’t know if Thomas and Isaac could be brothers, but they were joint assessors with the Land Tax Assessments about 1800. Generally, I am trying to find the wills of all those Barkers who lived within ten miles of Rotherham. There are a few additional locations a bit further afield that will also be looked at.—Greg Ramstedt, 15 Aug 2012]
[On Friday, 26 October 2012 I finally found my Barker origins after 40 years of searching. I’ll write about it later. –GJR]

BARKER, JOHN of SHEFFIELD, YORKSHIRE 1809, DEC Exchequer Curation vol.153, f. (FHL film 99770)
[The index at the beginning lists a John Barker of Fullwood in Sheffield. There are two images of this index page, the first much lighter than the second. Unfortunately, the page or folio number is not readable on either one of them. A couple December 1809 areas are scattered throughout the microfilm. I looked in each other them and did not find John of Fullwood. In those December sections I went name by name. I looked up curation. Probate courts issued tuition and curation bonds that were filed with wills and administrations. A guardian of a minor child posted these bonds. Younger children would require the tuition bonds, and older children the curation bonds. From www.mlfhs.org.uk/Infobase/Begin-Wills.php I see that testators might require a bond guarantee from the person they are appointing to education their children. Curations were for children above age 14. Tutors took out tuition bonds and curators took out curation bonds. Together these are called Guardianship Bonds.
