Was there any details or info given by the auctioneer when you bought it?

FINALLY, found one, not sure if it is the correct one. Joseph James Baxter, born 1842/3 St Margarets King's Lynn. Father Edward Baxter, mother Susan.

I have found the invoice from the auction house and the clock is described as follows: “ A circular wall clock- a painted face with Roman numerals-Baxter’s Butchers of King’s Lynn”

I have been informed that a sign on the old Post Office building states Baxter’s Plain was formerly named Baxter’s Bridge, if this is significant. Also have been informed that a Baxter’s butchers was operating in the 1960’s but near the Wenns public house and not at Baxter’s Plain. The mystery seems too continue.

I think the Baxters butchers on the Saturday mkt place was owned by the Baxters meat factory in Broad street that I mentioned earlier.

Thomas Henry Andrews b1868 was living at 15, High St. K/L in1871c with his parents his father was a butcher & bell hanger[died 1896 Priory Lane as a bell hanger ] I think that might have been where David Greggs was in my time in Lynn]
1891c Thomas Henry 23y butcher & the employer was at Fincham
FMP 1911c he is back in K/L he lived & died 14 London Road a retired butcher in April 1943 @ 75yrs
I worked at Liptons until 1956/7 and don't remember a butchers at that end of the High St. but we did leave Lynn in Oct. 1958, so may have been . There was Richards , Pughs. Barnards the flower shop & Wrens [ mind a blank if there was ] Winton Smiths was in the corner near the passage that ran behind Baker Lane.

I think Baxters butchers was in the precinct for a while after the Broad street setup went. They then moved to SMP...or maybe it was the other way round.

The factory was behind the fabrick shop. You got to it down the road inbetween Snowy Mayes shop and the Cattle Market Tavern.

Hi Ev
Ed asks before Snowy Mayes did two ladies have the shop? I can't picture the pub but must have walked past it many times going to the Majestic
Did it become a vegetable shop run by one of grandad Stephen's sons.?
Ed's uncle George lived 20 Broad St.

MRS D Rye [Daisy May Gordon ] married John Baker Rye [potato merchant] grandfather Stephen's nephew.
I have 1929 & 1937 Kelly's but can't find a Hardy under confectioners or shopkeepers , was hoping she belonged to my mum's maternal side.

I often wondered about J B Rye's name as granny Betsy Rye was born Baker. The Hardy name came from the 1933 street index.
