Footnotes

  • Confirmed on roll.

    Ex Sotheby's 1908.

    There are two other James Barker's on the roll with bars Syria.

    James Barker's name is entered on the musters of H.M.S. Impregnable, aboard which ship he was serving at the time of the action at algiers in August 1816. Barker entered this ship on the 9th July 1816 and is No. 77 on the list of Marines of the 2nd Class, so he had already served for at least two or three years at this time, having been upgraded from the 3rd Class into which he would have been placed on his entry into the service. The entries in the ship's musters indicate that he came from the Plymouth division, but searches of the Description books for this division failed to reveal his name. He was discharged from H.M.S. Impregnable, back to the Plymouth HQ on the 28th October 1816 and unfortunately this is where the trace of his services must end, for there is no way of knowing when or where he was assigned to his next ship, or when he left the service.
