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.
