Could someone check the address in the 1911 census please for this chap.

He is either a shoemaker, or Manufacturer of shoes. But was the founder of Barkers Shoes in Earls Barton, along with his son Arthur E. Barker c1888. Earls Barton.

Arthur E Barker was living in Sunnyside, Earls Barton, in 1911.

The Arthur Barker at Sunny Side in 1911 is with his father ARTHUR and mother MARTHA - have you got the correct Arthur???? or the wrong father?

1901 Station Road

Company website says Arthur Snr started firm and 3 sons joined him (Charles, Ernest & Arthur Jnr)

This is starting to become complicated

Birth Arthur Ernest Barker Sep 1887 Wellingbrough 3b 136 mmn Smart
(All of Thomas Barker's children, as listed in 1901 Census had mmn Smart. Thomas married an Elizabeth Maria Smart in 1884)

1911 Census only has 2 Arthur Barkers born c1888 Earls Barton. One is the son of Arthur Barker whom I gave in 1911 Census at Sunnyside. The other is an Arthur Ernest Barker who is working as a Cowman on a farm near Coventry.

In 1939 Arthur E Barker born 27 Aug 1887 is living in Wellingborough occ Cowman.
