On 14 Jun 1828 the Ipswich Journal reported that: Inquisitions before Mr. Wood, jun. Corner for the Liberty of St Etheldred...On Monday late at Burgh, on the body of Francis Leech who died in that parish on the Saturday preceding, it was proved by several witnesses, that on Friday evening the 6th inst the deceased and William Baxter of Burgh, labourer fought in the parish of Grundisburgh for an hour and forty minutes and that Leech was carried home insensible after the battle and never spoke again. Mr Steggall of Grundisburgh surgeon attended him very early the next morning and immediately bled him; he attended, and again bled Leech at a subsequent hour, but he died about twelve o'clock that day his head and body were afterwards opened by Mr Steggall, who found a considerable quantity of extravasated blood on the left hemisphere of the brain, which he deposed to have been cause of death. The Jury, after an investigation of several hours, being unanimously of opinion, that Leech died in consequence of a blow received from the said William Baxter returned a verdict of Manslaughter against him and he was accordingly committed by the Coroner of Ipswich Goal, for trial at the next Assizes. Baxter bore evident marks of a very severe beating, having two black eyes, and numerous wounds. These young men fought in consequence of a quarrel at Whitsuntide; and the endeavours of the bye-standers to put an end to the fight, were several times unavailing. At the summer assizes he was found not guilty.

He was again in trouble with the law in 1868 as the Ipswich Journal again reported: William Baxter, described as of Ashbocking, in the county of Suffolk, licensed victualler. The bankrupt in this case also attributes his failure to having incurred liabilities on behalf of John Hart Bridges, of Ipswich. The adjudication was founded upon the fact of the bankrupt's effects having been seized and sold under an execution by the Sheriff of Suffolk, the petitioning creditor being Mr. James Pringle Barclay, of Wickham Market, gentleman. The creditors comprise:- The Ipswich Mutual Benefit Society (No.20), £120 17s: ditto, £60 18s.; the Wickham Market Mutual Benefit Society (No. 6) £105; Messrs. Catchpole and Co., brewers Ipswich £85 4s 3d., Messrs Mills, Bawtree, and Co., bankers, Colchester, £100; John King, farmer, Otley, Suffolk, £190 (holding mortgage on three acres of land at Ashbocking, estimated value £160); Henry Cuthbert, merchant, Diss, £24; William Buttrum, Swilland, miller, £16 18s 4d., and for rent, £25; and Mr J.P. Barclay (the petitioning creditor), £72 2s. The assets are stated at about £30. He was discharged on 8 Aug 1868.

The licence for the Lord Nelson was transferred from William Baxter deceased, to Mrs Eliza Baxter on 2 May 1874

Note: The Ipswich Journal of 6 Aug 1898 reported as follows: 06 Aug 1898 Mysterious Drowning in Ipswich
Carter Found in the Gipping
The Ipswich Borough Coroner was engaged yesterday afternoon, at the Higher Grade School, in investigating the death of John Baxter, aged 54, a carter, of 33, Newton Street, whose body was recovered from the Gipping on Thursday evening. The widow deposed that her husband left home about a quarter to five the previous day, after being indoors all the afternoon. Prior to leaving he kissed her youngest son, and said "Good-bye." He asked to allow him to shake hands with her, and she replied "Nonsense." She believed he accidentally fell into the river, as he had never threatened to destroy himself. Formerly he was in the employment of Mr T Whitehead, contractor, but he had not been in work for the past fortnight. He had been very much depressed on account of his goods and effect having been taken in payment of rent, under a distress warrant, the amount in question being 35 s. They had to quit the house next Monday. In reply to a Juror, witness said she had not noticed anything strange in deceased's manner. He gave no reason for shaking hands with her. Arthur Barker Welham, labourer, Handford Cut, deposed that about 5.30 on Thursday evening he met deceased near Portman's Walk, which leads down to the Handford Lock gates. Witness asked him if he had anything in hand (meaning employment) and deceased replied, "No, the world is using me very rough." He added, "I have only misery to live for, and I shall not stand it any longer than tonight.”" They then separated. About six o'clock witness was told that a man had been taken out of the river, and going to the Handford Lock gates he found that it was the deceased. George William Potkins, labourer, 7, Little Gipping Street, said he was going along the towing-path, in the direction of Handford Road, when he saw the deceased standing in about six feet of water, close to the bank. Witness reached over and raised his head above the water. He tried to lift him out, but he was too heavy, and he called for assistance. When deceased was dragged on to the towing path there were no signs of life, but the body was warm, and artificial means of restoring life were resorted to, without effect.
Henry Calver, labourer, 48, Curries Lane, was working at the West End Bathing-place when he heard the last witness call out, and with a crome the deceased’s body was pulled on to the bank. Sergeant Emmerson, of the Borough Police Force, having given evidence, Mr F. R. Anness, surgeon stated that death was due to drowning. The Coroner, in summing up, said he apprehended that the Jury would have no doubt that the deceased died from drowning. The question that they would have to consider was whether the deceased was able to distinguish between right and wrong at the time of his death. They must not overlook deceased's conversation with the second witness a short time before his death, but probably the safest verdict would be one of "Found drowned."
The Jury returned a verdict of "Found drowned."
