Sarah Carver's Ancestry:
Notes & Sources

These items are in no particular order.  Please use the Our Carver Line and associated family pages to relate these items in a meaningful way.  However, there are a few items listed below that are not referenced in the family pages, e.g., in cases in which they refer to documents where no information was found, or they are sources not yet assimilated -- these have been marked as such, below.  This is a work in progress!

150. Family genealogy of the Carver family of  Norfolk and Suffolk, England by Glenn W. Carver, published July 2001 at:  
(local copy of this page).
This is of interest because James Carver's daughter Sarah married David Bickers Claxton, whose daughter Sarah Ann was Bertie William Beckett's mother.  The following local web pages detail the family line:
James b.1795 - John b.1754 - Thomas b.1711 - Thomas b. 1680
A brother of John's is James b.1759.
Mr. Glenn Carver also supplied the following items:
-- Picture of the Carver Farm House:          (83KB)
-- Map showing location of Carver Farm:   (110KB)
-- Map of Norfolk county area of England: (189KB)

A curiosity shows up in James' page and in the 1881 Census, wherein Elizabeth Hilda Beckett, 8 years old and sister to Bertie William Beckett, is listed as staying with her maternal grandparents -- though this may only mean that she was visiting at the time of the census and so got recorded there.
[BWB: attempts to find/e-mail Mr. Glenn Carver have failed.]

157. 1881 Census for Belton, Suffolk, England lists two families of interest:

157a. Edward and Sarahann Beckett and family.
(Text version)
[BWB: This is Bertie William Beckett's birth family, though he wasn't born until 1886, by which time there may have been other children born as well.  Also, the 1901 Census [146] lists 3 other children born after Bertie; there may have been others that had left the home by 1901.]

157b. David B. and Sarah Claxton and family.
(Text version)
[BWB: This establishes/confirms the connection with Edward and Sarahann Beckett (through the granddaughter listed herein), as well as with James Carver [150] who married the Mary Burrage listed herein, and fathered this Sarah.]

161.  1851 Census for Reedham Blofield, Norfolk Co., England (a Family History Resource File available at the FHL) lists:
        James Calver, head, 56, Labourer ((Ag))(Rail), b.Ipswich, Suffolk
        Mary Calver, wife, 50, b.Burgh Castle, Suffolk
        Charles Calver, Son, 15, b.Reedham, Norfolk
        Pheoba Clark, Servant, 18, House Servant, b.Pakefield, Suffolk.
[BWB: per source [150] above, this surname should be spelled Carver.]

166.  English Birth Certificate for birth #196 in 1851, sub-district Gorleston, district Mutford, county Suffolk:
        Sarah Ann Claxton, b.9/10/1851 in Belton
        to David Claxton, occupation Carter, and
        Sarah Claxton formerly Calver,
        signed with an 'X' by David, and registered 9/19/1851.

167. English Marriage Certificate for marriage #99 in 1870 solemnized 10/6/1870 at the parish church in the parish of Belton in the County of Belton, for
        Edward Beckett, 'full age', gardener, residence Belton, father Edward Beckett, blacksmith, and
        Sarah Ann Claxton, 19, residence Belton, father David Claxton, market gardener,
        witnessed by Harriet Claxton and George Claxton.

171. English Birth Certificate for Bertie William Beckett.   ***NEED COPY***

273.  Website produced by Sheila Hutchinson c.2002 contains two interesting items:
273a. Decendents of Samuel Burrage and Emma Bull: 
(Local Copy)  (Original:  )
273b. The Suicide of Rosa Selina Burrage, Samuel's great-granddaughter: 
(Local Copy)  (Original:'s/Page_5x.html  )
[BWB:  I modified this latter local copy to avoid overtyping found in the original.]

[BWB: The interest here is that Samuel Burrage and Emma Bull are our ancestors, if one believes they had a daughter Mary that married James Carver, per source [150] above.  Also of interest is that the Elizabeth Beckett that attended to Rosa Selina may also be related, though that connection has not been established.]
