Baxters of Framlingham

Framlingham

Framlingham is a market town with a long history. A reference to the town appears in the Doomsday Book of 1086, consisting of several manors. Framlingham was the homes of the first Dukes of Norfolk, who built the two castles, the first in 1100. The second was built on the same sight between 1190 and 1210 and was the first curtained walled castle in East Anglia. Mary Tudor was resident in the castle when she was declared Queen of England in July 1553. The church is dedicated to St Michael and was built in the fourteenth century. Parish registers date back to the Tudor times.

Ipswich Police
David Baxter was brought up on suspicion of stealing 54 old bricks, the property of Mr Joseph Ablitt Pettit.  The prisoner was formerly in the employment of the prosecutor, and the bricks were taken from the old Grammar School yard.  It was stated by Mr Geo. Taylor mechanical draftsman, at the foundry.  In the parish of St Peter that on Wednesday night, about half past eight as he was preceding past the Alms houses in Foundation Street, he saw a man wheeling a barrow full of bricks.  He turn round and saw it was the prisoner, who thereupon rested the barrow on the pavement, blew his nose and looked at the moon.  Mr Taylor instantly communicated with the prosecutor, when the prisoner was traced into a yard at the bottom of Foundation Street.  The prisoner, who denied the charge altogether was admitted to bail to appear for further examination.

David Baxter was brought up for re-examination on a charge of stealing 54 bricks the property of Mr J A Pettit, under the circumstance detail in our last journal was adjudged to take his trial at the sessions.
The Ipswich Journal 14 Jun 1854
Assaulted by a husband – David Baxter was charged with having assaulted Charlotte, his wife.
The parties appeared to be very excited, and the whole case exhibited the lowest state of morals.  The woman said that with the exception of two nights, her husband had not been home for the whole of last week.  On Thursday afternoon she found him at a disorderly house, with two woman of the town.  She asked him to come home he replied by a threat into execution, then she struck him with an umbrella on the head.  Thereupon struck her a blow, which was followed by two from the woman.  A scuffle immediately answered, the result of which was that after endangering her leg and arm between the door and doorpost he took her up in his arms and “flung her into the street;” the complaint adding, “that for the snow, my head must have been dashed to pieces of the pavement.”  The woman admitted that she had lived with the defendant before they were married, and that the result had been one child, having had two others now grown up, by a former husband.
The defendant said, the row commenced at the theatre on Monday might, “Where she began to hang a mob at him.”  Upon getting home he had another row with her sons in the course of which, “She up with the poker,” and finished by “pulling the hair of his head.”  All he wanted was “to get rid of them boys.”
Sergt. Mason said, he was down to the house, and found one of the sons with a poker in his hand threatening to break his father’s head.  The eldest was twenty years of age, and both were under the influence of drink.
The defendant observed he left the house and did not intend to return until the boys were got rid off by his wife.
The magistrates said, they could not interfere, as the woman took the law into her own hands at the commencement, by striking the first blow; adding that they were excessively disgusted at the conduct of the husband.

A WOMAN FOUND DEAD AT FRAMLINGHAM
An inquest was held on Tuesday afternoon at the Hare and Hounds Inn on the body of Hannah Gilbank, widow, age 48, who was found dead on Monday morning in a field near the Saxmundham Road in the parish of Framlingham before W. Brook, Esq., deputy Coroner...
Harriett Baxter, wife of Samuel Baxter, groom, said: Deceased was my sister and the widow of Mark Gilbank. He lived at Walkington, Yorkshire, and died there about eight years ago. Since that time she lived three years in Walkington, 3 1/2 years in Chelsea, and came to Framlingham last August twelvemonth to live with her mother. My mother is an invalid, and now bedridden. She has look peculiar since she came to Framlingham and at times been very low spirited, more so during the last three months. She had wondered about two or three times before. On those occasions she has roamed in the fields, she would not go where anyone saw her. Dr Jones attended her about two months ago, when she was very low and suffered from nervousness. He gave her five bottle of medicine and pills at intervals, but she would not take the medicine regularly as she ought to take it. She refused to go to Dr. Jones for medicine and advice. The last time I saw her alive was on Sunday night at 9.15. I spent a quarter of an hour with her. She lived next door to my house. During that time I talked to her, but she did not answer at all. I told her last thing to heat her mother some milk and take it up to her. She did not reply to it. She did not seem stranger than usual. She was generally quiet. I bid her good night and went in and locked my door. I heard nothing more of deceased. The following morning Mr. Webster called about 7.30 at my house with milk and said a woman had been found dead in one of Mr. Calvin Smith's fields. I thought at once it might my sister. I set my milk down and went in at the back door of my mother's house and called four times at the foot of the stairs "Hannah." I received no answer. I went upstairs at once and saw that no one had lain in her bed. I went up to Webster's house and told Mrs Webster of the circumstances of the bed not having been slept in, and that I believed the dead woman found was my sister. I told my husband to go and see the body, which I did not see until it was brought home in a tumbril. My husband went and identified the body...
Samuel Baxter, of Framlingham, groom said: Deceased was my sister-in-law. She had been low spirited three or four months. I found her about five weeks ago wandering between 9 and 10 at night up Cold hall lane. I heard someone coming to me and I waited and saw it was deceased. I said "So you are out for a walk?" She replied, "Yes." I accompanied her home. There were tow or three others (my wife and wife's sister) who told her we had been out looking for her. She replied, "Dear me." That was the only time I had gone looking for her. It was an uncommon thing for to be out, that was why I looked for her. Deceased used to live within a quarter of a mile of the spot where she was found dead on Monday. Whenever I have been in to see the deceased in her mother's home she seldom spoke to me. There has been no disagreement in the family. When Dr. Jones attended her she said, "No Doctor can do me any good." He recommended her to take plenty of fresh air.
Verdict: "Death from heart disease accelerated by exposure."

On April 28th, at Framlingham Samuel Baxter, aged 76
Framlingham Weekly News 03 May 1924
Obituary. The death of Mr. Samuel Baxter, who passed away on Monday after a very brief illness, in his 77th year, removes yet another of those gradually disappearing residents whose most active days were spent in the mid-victorian period. For many years prior to 1909 the late Mr. Baxter was in the service, as coachman and gardener, of the late Misses Edwards, at the premises in Church Street acquired about a year later by the Conservative Club, and many can recall vivid recollections of his familiar figure, with his flowing golden beard and bright complexion, seated on the "box" of his carriage with the handle of his whip resting on his knee. In his prime Mr. Baxter was recognised as a most productive gardener; for years he exhibited at the annual Farmers' Club show, and those in competition with him well remember what a formidable competitor they were up against, his name was generally heading the class. He was a recognised authority on everything pertaining to the garden or allotment, and he was often called in consultation by those not so well qualified to solve the ever-present and ever-recurring problems of the garden.
