Rachael Baker

#13341, b. 16 August 1795, d. 13 October 1865

Rachael was born, had her 7 children christened, and is buried here.
All Saints' church stands in a secluded setting, beside a 17th century moated farmhouse, at the end of a cul-de-sac. The churchyard is maintained by volunteers from the Suffolk Wildlife Trust as a wildlife sanctuary. The walls of the church are built of flint rubble, gathered from the fields. The layered masonry in the lower parts of the north wall shows that the core of the nave and chancel are over 900 years old.

Census details

Research Notes

  • Research note 01: The National Burial Index shows the same date and birth year for both Rachael and her husband Christopher. No Memorial, but Jean has got the certificates for me. Very touching - unusual as it seems they show the deaths were from natural causes. Both died in the same house on the same day..
