Robert Barker

A small Bible printed by Robert Barker in 1614, belonging to St Mary's Church, Datchet

Memorial in the chancel of Datchet Church, erected by Robert Barker to his father (1599) and first wife (1607)

Robert Barker has been described as a great benefactor to the village of Datchet. However, the charity which bears his name, the Barker Bridge House Trust, did not originate with him and only acquired his name when he regularised the charity, as the last surviving trustee, just before his death. For more information about that see the History of the Royal Stag pages on this website.
