BARKER, HUGH (d. 1632), an English lawyer, was educated at New College, Oxford. He was master of the free grammar school at Chichester, when it was attended by Selden, who received from him his instruction in 'grammar learning.' On 17 June 1605 he graduated D.L. at Oxford, being about this time chancellor of the diocese. He was admitted of the college of civilians on 9 June 1607, and for several years before his death, in 1632, he was dean of the court of arches in London. He was buried in the upper end of the New College chapel, Oxford, where his virtues are commemorated in a Latin epitaph.
