      History: Francis Staker was born 23 Mar 1806 to Zaccheus and Mary Staker (nee Souter) at Pagham, a parish of Sussex, 6 miles S.E. of Chichester, England. Francis died 27 Feb 1871 in Spring Farm, Allens Creek, Kapunda, South Australia, Australia, and is buried in the old Methodist Church yard ? now Lutheran property ? at Allens Creek, near Kapunda, South Australia, Australia. The South Australia Register shows Harriet Paige Staker, wife of Francis, as having died on 31 Jul 1894 but the headstone on her grave at Caltowi, South Australia, Australia, and other sources show Harriet?s death 1 Aug 1894 age 85 years. Also the Death Certificate for Harriet Staker lists her Death Date as July 31, 1894. This Death Certificate in Australian Records Office had a ?Note of Correction? attached saying ?Harriet was the wife of Francis instead of James?.
      Francis, age 31, Harriet, age 27, and a male child age 3 years, arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia, Australia on the ?Katherine Stewart Forbes? on 17th October 1837 having sailed from Gravesend, Kent, England on 29th April 1837 under Captain Alfred Fell.
      There was a Westleyan (or Primitive Methodist) Church at Allens Creek attached to the Kapunda Circuit. It was probably built in the 1860?s and was known as the ?Staker Church?. The land and chapel was transferred to the Lutheran Church in 1894 from the Staker family by agreement with a Mr. Sloan for the late Francis Staker. (Mr. Sloan is presumed to be Henry Sloan who married Eliza Maria Staker, daughter of Francis.)
      After the new Lutheran Church was built in 1907 the old chapel was used as a Church School and hall until it was demolished in 1964.
      Certificates held by a descendent show that Francis and Harriet were members of the Primitive Methodist Connexion in 1870 and 1873.
