Baxters of Melton

Melton

Melton adjoins the parish of Woodbridge, on the banks of the river Deben.  Two churches stand here both dedicated to St Andrew the Apostle.  The old church stands some distance from the village, no services are held here, but people are still buried in the cemetery.  The new church was built in1868, situated in the main village, but does not have a burial ground.  The parish registers date back to 1558.  About a mile from the village on the road to Wickham Market stood the House of Industry which became the County Lunatic Asylum in 1829.

What happened to the children of Robert Baxter and Mary Allen of Melton?

William Baxter (1742 - ?)

The following information is based on the assumption that since the William was born in Melton and the William below lived in Melton that he is the son of Robert Baxter and Mary Allen of Melton.  However there is a possibility that the following information belongs to a different William Baxter that of William Baxter born in 1738 Leiston the son of Thomas Baxter and Sarah Mayhew.  I have assumed that since this second William was born in Leiston it was he who was apprenticed to Benj Bayes of Leiston, Suffolk, peruke maker in 1755.  To complicate matters further Joseph Baxter the youngest son of Thomas Baxter of Leiston settles in Alderton at around the same time as the William below was there.

Marriage

William married Esther Thurston (1751 - 1791). From the parish registers of Alderton:

"William Baxter of this parish single man and Esther Thurston of this parish also spinster, were married in this church by banns this twelfth day of September 1774. In the presence of Wm Upson and James Audley.

Children

William and Esther had the following:

Woodbridge Petty Session Report, Wednesday February 27th
Stealing a watch – William Baxter, a one – armed man was charged with stealing a silver watch and chain, value £2 10s the property of James Broom, at Hollesley on the 21st February.
Prosecutor said he was a superannuated police-constable, living at Hollesley.  On the day in question he went out about half-past two o’clock in the afternoon, leaving the watch and chain over the mantel-piece.  The door was open.  Prisoner was a stranger to him, but witness saw him about 40 yards from his house, going towards it.  A few minutes afterwards he was sent for, and on going back saw his wife and prisoner talking together in a neighbour’s yard.  His wife said prisoner had taken the watch, which the prisoner denied.  Witness the sent for a policeman.  His wife said prisoner must have it, as he was seen going into the house.  Prisoner said witness might send for the policeman and have him searched.  Policeman Burrows came, and took prisoner into his house and searched him, but could not find the watch.  Afterwards Burrows went out; and returned in about ten minutes with the watch and chain, and told prisoner he should charge him with stealing them.  Prisoner said he was charged wrongfully.  The watch produced was the same.
Martha Thurkettle, aged 12, said her parents lived next door to prosecutor.  On the 21st February she saw prisoner go into Mr. Broom’s house.  He knocked at the door before he went in.  About five minutes afterwards witness saw him at Mrs Brighten’s house.  Prisoner asked witness if she wanted anything, and she said her mother was not at home.
Keziah Andrews, aged 14, gave similar evidence as to seeing prisoner knock and go in to Mr. Broom’s.  When he came out he went across the road to a ditch and stooped down for a few minutes, and put his hand down, and then went across to Mrs. Brighton’s.  He had a basket on his shoulders.
Elizabeth Andrews, mother of the last witness, and she found the watch under some grass in the ditch in question.  She called Policeman Burrows, who came and picked it up, and showed it to prosecutor.  The watch produce was the same.
Policeman Burrows produced the watch, and gave evidence in accordance with the last and previous witnesses, and added that when he showed the watch to Brown he identified it at once.  Witness charged prisoner with stealing the watch, and took him into custody.  He was a licensed hawker, and had a basket.
Mrs. Broom, wife of prosecutor, said she was in the garden shortly after two o’clock, and saw prisoner pass down by the hedge.  She turned back and found that the watch was gone, and the door open.  He said, in answer to witness, that he had been in her house.
Committed for trial at the Quarter Sessions.
The Ipswich Journal 23 Mar 1878
Suffolk Quarter Sessions
Stealing a watch and chain at Hollesley
William Baxter, 36, hawker, was indicted for stealing a silver watch and steel chain, on the values of £2 10s, on the 21st February, the property of James Broom, of Hollesley.
Mr. Blofeld prosecuted.
On the day named prosecutor left his house, leaving his watch and chain hanging over the mantel piece.  His wife was in the garden.  He met the prisoner going in the direction of his house.  Prisoner went to the house and was seen to go into it.  Mrs. Broom went to the house, and missed the watch and chain.  Prisoner went out of the house, walked across the road, and was seen to stoop down by the side of a ditch on the opposite side of the road.  Policeman Burrows searched the prisoner, but could not find the watch.  It was afterwards found by the side of the ditch, where prisoner had been seen to go.
Prisoner had nothing to say in defence, and the Jury found the prisoner guilty, and he was sentenced to four months’ imprisonment with hard labour.
