George Baxter is mentioned in several house deed papers and in an article by Adrian Henstock in the Thoroton Society Transactions. He came from an old Bingham family with several branches flourishing in the town, most of them framework-knitters. He was the only son of William Baxter by Jane Shelton, but his father died when he was four and just over two years later his mother married Daniel Stafford, the recently-widowed parish schoolmaster. George was therefore brought up with his half-brother John Stafford, later printer, in a scholarly atmosphere. During the 1780s he was working as a framework-knitter, possibly having been apprenticed to his uncle Samuel (1717-1789), one of the church singers and bell-ringers. However his early education no doubt assisted him in setting up in business as a grocer in Church Street in the 1790s, later becoming a mercer and draper in addition. He was a passionate supporter of the school in which he had been educated. Following his step-father's death he took part in the charitable plays as both actor and singer, and subsequently added 10 of his own money to help make the 80 profit up to 100; in 1798 he added a further 25. At the age of 33 he married 17-year-old Betsy Clayton, who produced a daughter three months later but who soon died (NW004), apparently their only child. He was a churchwarden from 1794 to 1822 and a devoted chronicler of local affairs, frequently writing up the parish register and including details of ages and occupations together with notes of unusual deaths, and he also annotated and arranged the earlier registers. His grocery shop was at 15 Church Street and on 14 August 1807 he was given ownership of 7 Church Street by his uncle George Shelton, in return for an annuity of 40 pounds by way of a bond. George Shelton died 17 April 1809 and George Baxter lived at number 7 before it was rebuilt in Georgian Style. He was a part of a consortium that developed part of Market Street with Union Street and Needham Street before he eventually went bankrupt. 7 Church Street was sold to William Pilgrim of the Chesterfield Arms (SE080).
