John Barber
15??-1589

John Barber is currently the earliest ancestor recorded in this entire Family Tree project.

John lived in Witcham, Cambridgeshire and was the husband of Margaret. She outlived John, and along with four children, was named as a benefactor of John's will. His will states his intention to be buried in Witcham churchyard.

The will names their daughter Alice as unmarried - inheriting a bed, sheets, pewter dishes and platters, and a cupboard.

Witcham's parish records start 10 years after John's burial, and therefore don't particularly reveal anything much about John's family, so I have listed his children in the order that they appear in his will in 1589.
