David Baxter (1800 - 1884)

I have not been able to locate a baptism for David and he was not baptized in Burgh. Two of the witnesses at his marriage were David Baxter (1813 - 1894) grandson of William Baxter (1760 - 1843) and Lucy Baxter (1818 - 1840) granddaughter of John Baxter (1755 - 1835). David was clearly family, but to which branch he was from I do not know.

Marriage

David married Harriet Rattle (1811 - 1882). From the parish registers of Burgh:

"David Baxter of this parish bachelor and Harriet Rattle of this parish spinster were married in this church by banns this twenty-seventh day of January 1835. In the presence of David Baxter junior, Lucy Baxter and James Alexander. "

Children

David and Harriet had the following:

Statute of Limitation Plea
Samuel C Buttrum V David Baxter – An action brought by Mr Buttrum, Miller of Burgh, to recover £5 3s of the defendant, a carrier of the same place.
Mr Churchyard appeared for the plaintiff; Mr. Head (from Mr. Pollard’s office, Ipswich), for the defendant.
the defendant pleaded the statute of limitation.
It was contended on the part of the plaintiff that it was a running account, commencing in March, 1854, on which several payments were made on account, from time to time, so as to bring the debt out of the statue; and much time was occupied by his Honour examining the several items in the plaintiff’s book.
His Honour said it appeared to him that the several payments made, ever since March 4, 1854, were for good subsequently had, and for grinding done, because Mr. Buttrum had refused to give further credit, and therefore he was of opinion that the statute must take effect.
Judgement for defendant.

Inquisitions before Mr. Wood, jun. Corner for the Liberty of St Etheldred …On Monday late at Burgh, on the body of Francis Leech who died in that parish on the Saturday preceding, it was proved by several witnesses, that on Friday evening the 6th inst the deceased and William Baxter of Burgh, labourer fought in the parish of Grundisburgh for an hour and forty minutes and that Leech was carried home insensible after the battle and never spoke again.  Mr Steggall of Grundisburgh surgeon attended him very early the next morning and immediately bled him; he attended, and again bled Leech at a subsequent hour, but he died about twelve O’clock that day his head and body were afterwards opened by Mr Steggall, who found a considerable quantity of extravasated blood on the left hemisphere of the brain, which he deposed to have been cause of death.  The Jury, after an investigation of several hours, being unanimously of opinion, that Leech died in consequence of a blow received from the said William Baxter returned a verdict of “Manslaughter” against him and he was accordingly committed by the Coroner of Ipswich Goal, for trial at the next Assizes.  Baxter bore evident marks of a very severe beating, having two black eyes, and numerous wounds.  These young men fought in consequence of a quarrel at Whitsuntide; and the endeavours of the bye-standers to put an end to the fight, were several times unavailing.

William Baxter, aged 18, was arraigned on the Corner’s inquest for feloniously slaying Francis Leech, in the parish of Burgh.  It appeared that the prisoner and deceased, in consequence of a quarrel at Whitsuntide, met some days after to fight, but that the prisoner was very desirous of giving up sometime before the blow which occasioned the death to Leech; and he was therefore acquitted.

Son of Robert and Rachel Baxter, servant, Wells Street
Parish Church of Nacton

Ipswich St Helen

*Rachel was recorded as the mother of a son, who was baptized at Nacton and his birth was registered under the name of David. After this, I can find no mention of David, instead Harry as the family calls him or Henry as he calls himself appears. I can find no birth registered for a Harry or Henry Baxter, but have found a baptism for a Henry David supposed son of Robert and Rachel Baxter. In 1851 Harry, 5 years, was living with his Grandparents, who states that he was born in Nacton. This fits as the above David would have been around five and a half at the time, and the workhouse for the Woodbridge area was situated in Nacton. I strongly suspect that David/Harry/Henry are the same individual, for some reason his family changed his name.

Mysterious Drowning in Ipswich
Carter Found in the Gipping
The Ipswich Borough Coroner was engaged yesterday afternoon, at the Higher Grade School, in investigating the death of John Baxter, aged 54, a carter, of 33, Newton Street, whose body was recovered from the Gipping on Thursday evening.
The widow deposed that her husband left home about a quarter to five the previous day, after being indoors all the afternoon.  Prior to leaving he kissed her youngest son, and said “Good-bye.”  He asked to allow him to shake hands with her, and she replied “Nonsense.”  She believed he accidentally fell into the river, as he had never threatened to destroy himself.  Formerly he was in the employment of Mr T Whitehead, contractor, but he had not been in work for the past fortnight.  He had been very much depressed on account of his goods and effect having been taken in payment of rent, under a distress warrant, the amount in question being 35 s.  They had to quit the house next Monday.
In reply to a Juror, witness said she had not noticed anything strange in deceased’s manner.  He gave no reason for shaking hands with her.
Arthur Barker Welham, labourer, Handford Cut, deposed that about 5.30 on Thursday evening he met deceased near Portman’s Walk, which leads down to the Handford Lock gates.  Witness asked him if he had anything in hand (meaning employment) and deceased replied, “No, the world is using me very rough.”  He added, “I have only misery to live for, and I shall not stand it any longer than tonight.”  They then separated.  About six o’clock witness was told that a man had been taken out of the river, and going to the Handford Lock gates he found that it was the deceased.
George William Potkins, labourer, 7, Little Gipping Street, said he was going along the towing-path, in the direction of Handford Road, when he saw the deceased standing in about six feet of water, close to the bank.  Witness reached over and raised his head above the water.  He tried to lift him out, but he was too heavy, and he called for assistance.  When deceased was dragged on to the towing path there were no signs of life, but the body was warm, and artificial means of restoring life were resorted to, without effect.
Henry Calver, labourer, 48, Curries’ Lane, was working at the West End Bathing-place when he heard the last witness call out, and with a crome the deceased’s body was pulled on to the bank.
Sergeant Emmerson, of the Borough Police Force, having given evidence, Mr F. R. Anness, surgeon stated that death was due to drowning.
The Coroner, in summing up, said he apprehended that the Jury would have no doubt that the deceased died from drowning.  The question that they would have to consider was whether the deceased was able to distinguish between right and wrong at the time of his death.  They must not overlook deceased’s conversation with the second witness a short time before his death, but probably the safest verdict would be one of “Found drowned.”
The Jury returned a verdict of “Found drowned.”

DEATH OF
MR. JAMES DAVIES BAXTER
OF BURGH
Mr. Baxter, of The Forge, Burgh, passed peacefully away at his residence on Friday of last week at the age of 87 years.  The funeral took place at Grundisburgh Baptist Chapel on Saturday last.  He was a native of Burgh, and had resided in the parish all his life.  The deceased was a farrier and general smith, and was recognised for miles around as a skilled craftsman in every branch of the trade.  He delighted in taking part in horse-shoeing competitions at agricultural shows.  Mr. Baxter has also been a keen gardener, and was greatly interested in all local flower shows, at which he used to be a regular exhibitor.  Always outspoken, yet he gained the respect from all with whom he came into contact.  Until five and a half years ago he was a regular attendant at Grundisburgh Chapel, but illness prevented this custom.
The service was conducted by Pastor Randall of Otley, in the absence of Pastor Prime.  The deceased’s favourite hymns, “The King of live my Shepherd is” and “My rest is in heave,” were sung by the request of the family.
Four sons and five daughters of the late Mr. Baxter attended the funeral, the remaining daughter, Mrs Gray, of Shepperton, being prevented by indisposition.
Many other relatives and friends were at the ceremony to pay their last tribute of respect.
The funeral arrangements were carried out by Mr. William Cook, of Grundisburgh.
