The name Baker, appeared in many references, and from time to time, the surname was spelt Baker, Bakere, Baiker, Backer and others.

First found in Durham, where the Baker 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.
