Samuel Williams (Barker) at the age of eight inherited the Barker homestead at Scituate, Mass. This house was built by John Williams, father in law of Robert and John Barker, as early as 1634 and was for a time used as a garrison-house, as appears from its massive inner walls of brick pierced with loopholes. The son of John Williams, Capt. John died childless in 1694 and left the house, with 200 acres of land to his grand nephew, Samuel Williams. The place remained in the Barker family for six or seven generations. … He married 12-25-1706 Hannah, dau. of Rev. Jeremiah and Hannah (Loring) Cushing.
