      Charles Stuart Barker. (An Extract of his life and Career.)
      by Paul Halliday
      (The reason for this transcribed extract is to show a brief outlay of Charles Stuart Barker's Career. Some articles in the newspaper are small, unreadable or hard to find. Advertisements in the good old days were the same. Making this challenge of finding the right needle in a haystack of needles.)
      Charles Stuart Barker was baptised in 1826 Melboune, Derbyshire. He was the son of Richard Barker and Mary Hawksworth. Charles married Jane Greaves in 1845. At this time he was a school master and Jane was a school mistress. The school in question is unknown, however they were living in Victoria St, St Peter's Derby at the time. Charles and Jane had three known children ... Charles Stuart Barker b 1846 Melbourne, Derby, Arthur Greaves Barker b 1853 Melbourne, Derby and Emily Bowers Barker b 1861 Walworth, Surrey. Charles died in 1882 while in bankrupcy. His house was realised as payment of debts. His wife Jane Greaves was born in 1827 Mackworth, Derbyshire and died in 1882. She was the daughter of Thomas Greaves and Elizabeth Unknown.
      The following is a known list of newspaper articles from The London Gazette. The bankrupcy in question runs from the first general meeting on the 7th Mar 1879 to its final outcome on the 14th Apr 1882. It is not revealed who the creditors are. Charles Stuart Barker Sr passed away before the last hearing. At the time it would have been a scandle to be declared bankrupt.

      Note: Charles Stuart Barker lists his address as 12 Buckingham Street, Strand which was once the residence of Samuel Pepys.
