Early Origins of the Bakere family
Durham, where the Bakere family held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D. Due to its occupational origins, it is likely that the name emerged independently in different areas, thus creating several early branches of the Bakere family.

Migration of the Bakere family to the New World and Oceana
The New World beckoned settlers from the Scottish-English borders. They sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. Some called them, less romantically, the "coffin ships." Among the early settlers bearing the Bakere surname who came to North America were: Alice Baker, who came to Virginia in 1637; John Baker, who immigrated to Fermeuse, Newfoundland in 1675; William Baker, who arrived in Virginia in 1682.
