Carlton Colville

Carlton Colville village lies between Beccles and Lowestoft. The church is dedicated to St Peter and is a square embattled church. The old church registers were destroyed by fire and the earliest records date from 1715. Carlton Colville currently has four pubs the Carlton Manor, The Bell Inn, The Crown and The Old Red House.

Carlton Colville St Peter

Early Baxters

Baxters populated Carlton Colville in a sporadic occasions and very few settled in the area for any length of time. The first occurrence of the Baxter surname comes from the marriage register.
"16 April 1722 Thomas Colby of Lowestoft and Margaret Baxter of Kessingland were married by licence."

Richard Baxter (d. 1747)

The next mention of a Baxter was Richard Baxter who was a potential brother to Nicholas Baxter of North Cove. None of his children were baptized in Carlton Colville.

Marriage

Richard married Mary Botwright (d. 1795) From the parish registers of Carlton Colville:
"Richard Baxter single man and Mary Botwright widow, both of this parish were married by banns September 19th 1725."

After Richard’s death Mary married Simon Godard/Goddard (d.1756). From the parish registers of Wenhaston:
"Simon Godard widower and Mary Baxter widow were married April 7 1751."

Children

Richard and Mary had the following:

What happened to the children of Richard Baxter and Mary Botwright?

Mary Baxter (1726 – ?)

Marriage

I believe it is this Mary that married Edward Richman/Richmon/Richmond. From the parish registers of Gunton
"Edward Richmond and Mary Baxter both single of this parish of Gunton were married by banns November 6 1746."

Richard Baxter (1729 – 1774)

Marriage

Richard married Philippa/Phillis Ashby (d.1778) maiden name Mapes. From the parish registers of Langley, Norfolk:
"Richd Baxter single man and Phillis Ashby widow, both of Geldston were married by banns August 29 1750. "

Philippa married her first husband John Ashby (d.1749) in 1740. John was buried in October 1749, and Richard Ashby, his posthumous son with Philippa was baptized in June 1750, and she married Richard Baxter two months later. I am not sure if this is why there was a subtle change in her christian name.

Children

Richard and Philippa had the following:

The Ipswich Journal 05 Sep 1767 LOWESTOFT, August 31, 1767.
WHEREAS WILLIAM BAXTER, late of Oulton in the County of Suffolk, a young Man about 15 Years old In November last, let himself to Mr. WILLIAM EMERSON of Lowestoft, Farmer, from that Time till Michaelmas next; but behaving in an idle intractable Manner, and paying no Regard to the frequent Remonstrance’s of his Master, he was threatened to be sent home: But in order to elude the Correction which he merited from Mr Emerson, and the still greater, which he expected from his father, the Boy sometime in the Beginning of May last left his Master’s service, and has not since been heard of, tho’ much pains has been taken for that purpose; and as he had frequently expressed a Desire of being a Sailor, tis imagined he is gone to Sea.
The long Absence of the young Man induced a suspicion that all was not well; and at length Hints were dropt, said to come originally from Richard Baxter, the Lad’s Father, that his son had been murder’d; and that suspicion, however ridiculous and absurd, became universal, and Mr. Emerson deemed the malefactor. In Justice therefore to the Injured, and to acquit myself of being the author of such a villainous Report, I the said Richard Baxter do in this public Manner deny my ever entertaining even the most deferent Apprehension of my son’s having been ill-treated by his Master; but on the contrary, I am convinced that Mr. Emerson used my son while with him with all imaginable Leniency, and that Mr. Emerson’s general Character is that of a humane, good natured Man.

On Saturday morning, about 7.40, Emma Baxter, a widow, aged 62 years, of the Church Street, Pakefield, was found dead on the footpath leading to the back way of four cottages in Church Street, about thirty yards from her home. It is supposed that she died from exposure. The Coroner has been communicated with, and an inquest will be held.
Lowestoft Journal 08 Feb 1902 SHOCKING AFFAIR AT PAKEFIELD
WOMAN’S DEATH FROM EXPOSURE.
Mr. C. W. Chaston (Coroner) held an inquest at 7, Alexandra Road, Pakefield, relative to the death of Emma Baxter, aged 62, widow, who was found dead near the residence of her nephew, Church Street, Pakefield, with whom she had lived.
Ellen Mary Blowers, wife of Wm. Blowers, fisherman, 8, Church Street, Pakefield, stated that she last saw deceased alive in her house shortly before 8 p.m. on Saturday. Deceased stayed with witness till nearly 9. She appeared to be a little the worse for drink. Witness offered her some tea, but deceased declined to accept it. Deceased seemed a little worried about an account she had received. Witness had no idea where deceased went when she left the house.
Mary Ann Fisk, of Kirkley, said that on Saturday evening she was assisting at the Prince of Wales Inn at Pakefield. Deceased came into the house shortly after nine o’clock on Saturday, and brought a bottle which she asked witness to fill by the time she returned. Deceased returned for the bottle at about 9.45, and at the same time was supplied with a glass of stout and ale. Deceased did not then appear the worse for drink. A pint of stout and ale was put into the bottle. Deceased only remained a few minutes, leaving before 10 o’clock. She had no other drink in the house.
John William Colby, labourer, of Church Street, Pakefield, said the deceased, who was his aunt, had lived with him. She was the widow of Joseph Baxter. Witness last saw her alive on Saturday at 2.30 p.m., when she was at home. She was then all right and sober. Witness went out, and on returning at 10 p.m. found that his aunt was absent. Witness went to bed, as he did not feel much concerned about her. It was no unusual thing for her to be out late, and at times out all night.
William Chapman having deposed to finding the body.
P. C. Berley said the bottle was uncorked and empty.
Dr. Walter Berry, of Kirkley, expressed the opinion that death was due to exposure to cold, and added that anyone under the influence of intoxicants would die much sooner than a person who was not.
The jury returned a verdict that deceased died from exposure.

Eastern Evening News 30 Jan 1890 A WILD GOOSE CHASE
Robert Fowler, labourer, of Carlton Colville, and William Baxter, labourer, of Oulton, were charged remand with stealing five geese, the property of Miss J. Caldecott, at Oulton, on the 21st inst.
Mr. H. Chamberlin defended, and said had advised his elicits to plead guilty to the charge. They, however, disputed the value at which the fowls were estimated, and the time they were killed.
Benjamin Pitchers, and gardener to Miss Caldecott, said on Tuesday afternoon 21st, saw the geese alive on his mistress’ premises, but the following night they were gone. He had never known the birds stray far. He went, in the company with Police-constable Edgar, to London, and saw the geese in the shop of a Mr. Jacobs. His mistress gave 7s 6d. each for the geese in the first instance, and they were now worth 10s. He had never seen the geese rise so high as 15 ft.
William Batty, in the employ of Miss Caldecott, said saw the geese produced on Miss Caldecott’s premises on Tuesday in last week.
In answer to Mr. Chamberlin, witness said the fowls had been shot. He had never seen the birds rise higher than a foot or two.
William Utting, porter at Carlton Colville Railway Station, said on the 21st inst. the defendants brought two hampers to the station, saying that one contained fish and the other fowls. They were addressed to Mr. Jacobs of Liverpool Street. Fowler handed him a consignment note.
Samuel Jacobs, poulterer, carrying on business at 34, Liverpool Street, and other places, said on the 21st inst. he received a letter from Fowler stating that he had forwarded him some geese, which had shot on Oulton Broad, and asking him to do his best with them. When he opened the hamper he found they were tame geese and hung them up for sale. One was sold, and the rest were taken by a policeman on the following Friday. He received goods from the country, for which he sent a remuneration when they wen sold.
The Magistrates’ Clerk, in answer to Mr. Chamberlin, said the value of the poultry had been settled at 40s.
Police-constable Edgar said he and Pitchers went to London and took the geese from Mr. Jacobs’ shop, after identifying them, and brought them to Lowestoft.
Police-constable Philippo stated that on Friday last he went to the defendants and asked them whether they wished to account for the geese coming into their possession. Fowler replied that on Tuesday they shot three over the wall on the marshes and two on the river, which Baxter said was quite true. They did not know they were tame until after they had shot them. Witness then took defendants into custody.
Defendants pleaded guilty to the charge.
Mr. Chamberlin, in defence, said hoped to satisfy the Bench that at least a lenient penalty in this case would be sufficient. His clients disputed the time the geese were killed—they said they were killed at ten o’clock on Tuesday morning, while Pitchers had stated that he saw them between one and two on Tuesday afternoon. Both defendants held gun licenses. They worked labourers during the season. Nothing was known against their characters. On the morning in question they were out their boat on the Broad, and had their guns with them. The geese were about sixty yards from them, and looked very much like wild fowl. The defendants made a mistake, killing three in the water. Two rose in the air and were brought down the men. On discovering that the birds were tame they did not try to ascertain the owners of them, but acted very foolishly, and sent the geese to London. He hoped, however, the Bench would deal leniently with them, and not send them prison. He would call witnesses to prove the young men were quiet end respectable.
Charles Solomon, marsh man, said, on the morning in question he saw defendants shoot two geese about mile and a half from Miss Caldecott’s.
Mr. W. Poyser said during the last seven years he had known the defendants, and had never heard anything against them.
Mr. James Bullen said during the last ten years he had known the defendants, who bore remarkably good characters.
After long consultation Mr. Peto the magistrates very much regretted seeing the defendants before them, and had no wish to brand them by sending them to prison, but such practices must be stopped. They would be fined £5, or a month’s imprisonment with hard labour. The money was paid.

Eastern Daily Press 26 Jan 1905 MISTOOK THE BIRDS
William Baxter, fisherman, and Henry Cole, labourer, both of Carlton Colville, were charged by John T, Cole, farmer, with trespassing in search of game on his land at Carlton Colville, on January 14th. Baxter admitted the offence, but the other defendant pleaded not guilty. John Wright, labourer, in the employ of Mr. Cole, said he saw the men on the Carlton Road, looking over the hedge of a field, belonging to his master. Witness heard the report of a gun, and saw a partridge rise. Witness walked towards the men, and saw Cole carrying a gun. Baxter was on the field looking for a bird which he eventually found, and put under his coat. Witness asked him for the partridge, and he gave it to him. Baxter, who said he did not know he was shooting at partridges, was fined 5s. and 6s. costs, and Cole was discharged with a caution.
Eastern Evening News 17 Apr 1905 OBSCENITY
William Baxter, labourer, of Carlton Colville pleaded not guilty to a similar offence in Carlton Road at 12.20 a.m. on April 9th. Police-constable Jackson proved the case and John Wright of Cole’s Farm, Carlton Coville, corroborated. Frederick Rounce and George Porter were called for the defence, after which defendant was fined £1 or ten days. Defendant – “I should think that is all right. I hope next time I shall be here for something, and not for nothing.”
Eastern Evening News 01 Jan 1906 ASSAULT CHARGE DISMIDSSED
William Baxter, Kirkley Run, labourer, and John Wright, Carlton Colville, labourer, brought a cross-summonses for an assault at Kirkley. Baxter said he passed Wright on the road and said “Good night” to him. Wright’s reply was to knock him down. Wright then sat upon him and pommelled him about the face. They had had no words that night, but there was an old grievance. William Catchpole, Kirkley Run, said he saw both men on the ground fighting. Wright was on the top. He heard Baxter say :- “I don’t want to fight; let me get up.” Wright said, “Now I’ve got you here I’ll keep you.” Witness tried to separate the men, and afterwards he and his father succeeded. Wright was striking Baxter, who was not in a position to strike back. Wright said Baxter shot up by the side of him and hit him in the face. Witness owned that after that he did thrash Baxter. Witness said that he once “had” Baxter for shooting partridges, and gave evidence against him. The magistrates dismissed the case, each party to pay his own costs.
