LAKER

 
John Laker   (156? - 16??)

Born about 1566.


John Laker   Born 9 June 1608 in Shipley, Sussex. See next.




John Laker   (1608 - 1659)

Born 9 June 1608 in Shipley, Sussex. Married Thomasina Coquor 9 June 1628 in Shipley. Three children: Ann (1632), John (1633) both baptised in Shipley, and another child baptised in Thakeham (1637). Thomasina was buried 17 May 1641 in Shipley.

Born in Shipley, Sussex in 1610

They were married 19 December 1644 in Shipley. John was buried 13th April 1659 in Shipley. Mary died May 1651. The children from this second marriage were:

Thomas Laker   Bap. 17 June 1650 in Shipley. Buried April 1653 in Shipley.

William Laker   Bap. 12th January 1651 in Shipley. See next.




William Laker   (1651 - 1689)

Baptised 12th January 1651 in Shipley.

Susannah Baker   (1656 - 16??)

Baptised 16 September 1656 in Shipley, the daughter of Thomas Baker born Shipley, Sussex, 1634.

They were married 12th April 1683 in Shipley. William was buried January 1686 in Shipley.

The children are presumed to be as follows (all baptised in Shipley):

Nicholas Laker   Born 1675. See next.

Thomas Laker   Bap. 1 January 1684. Buried 3 January 1684.

Maria Laker   Baptised 31 January 1685. Buried 4 April 1695 in Shipley.

The records show Susannah having a child baptised 3 years after her husband's death.

Edward Laker   Bap. 14 January 1689. Servant. Buried 23 January 1706 in Shipley.




Nicholas Laker   (1675 - 1742)

Mary                 (1679 - 1749)

This Nicholas was a witness to a wedding in Ashurst in 1698. He and Mary must have been born in Shipley because they are marked as "POOR" in the baptism records of 1701, and a parish only provided for its own poor in those times.

It should be noted that because of a tax imposed on parish register entries in 1694 it is possible that Nicholas & Mary were not married. The PR 1701 baptism does not say Mary his wife as on other entries. That tax was repealed in 1702. The old workhouse at Renches Farm has two fields near it that are marked Lakers Field in the 1841 Tithe map. This was possibly land allocated to Nicholas and cleared by him, so that he could support his family.

Nicholas was buried 7 February 1742 at Shipley. He is descibed as a husbandman. Mary was buried 11th February 1749 at Shipley.
