An Englishman who had already tried his luck in the California gold-fields and on the Fraser River, he started staking claims near William's Creek in 1861.


People said Barker was foolish when he chose a spot downriver from everybody else, near Stouts Gulch, and started digging the deepest mine-shaft around. But he and his seven partners struck gold, and within 48 hours they pulled out over 60 ounces (1700g) of gold, then worth roughly $1000. The boom town of Barkerville soon sprang up around Barker's find, named after him of course.
