I have just discovered that Hannah Barker's (wife of George Barker) maiden name is Marples. Hannah Marples was born ca. 1808 in Eckington according to census information. I have just searched familysearch.com and have found a christening record of a Hannah Marples in 1808 in Eckington, parents are Henry and Sarah Marples. I believe that Hannah could have had a brother named James Marples as on the 1841 census there is a James Marples living with George and Hannah Barker in Eckington.
Is anyone researching the Marples surname in the area of Eckington?
