The nearest he came to anything like that was as Peggy Ashcroft's gangling son in Marguerite Duras's Days in the Trees at the Aldwych (1966), as he was embarking on his dream of theatre in East Anglia. Baker married three times: to the costume designer Julia Squires, to Sally Home, and to Ramsay, the on-screen Mrs Wexford. All three predeceased him. He is survived by four daughters from his first marriage and one from his second.

Far Thrupp, Stroud, Gloucestershire ; Dover, NH: Alan Sutton, 1994. (Northamptonshire by Paul Stamper) On 30 March 1851, the same year that George Baker died a national census of attendance at places of worship was taken. Tis gives us a snapshot of the attendance at these chapels and the overall strenght of the nonconformist as a whole. At the early age of thirteen whilst he was a pupil of Mr Cornfield in Horsemarket, Northampton he had produced, in manuscript, a Life of Dr John Hinchcliffe (d. 1794), Bishop of Peterborough, 7 and a history of Northampton 8. After leaving school George became a wool-stapler like his father 9. He followed his antiquarian interests in his spare time, notably by assisting John Britton (1771-1857) with the Northamptonshire section of The Beauties of England and Wales. 10.George ’s first printed work, A Catalogue of Books, Poems, Tracts, and Small Detached Pieces, produced in an edition of just 20 copies appeared in 1810 11.

Of all the television detectives of recent years, George Baker's Inspector Wexford, with his mature West Country burr, slight air of fallibility and occasional stubbornness, was the one who seemed to spring from real life rather than an author's fancy. Sometimes ponderous, sometimes wrong, always homely, Baker's Wexford had his affable ex-constable's feet firmly on the ground. The character had a solid, believable family life. The actor, also a family man, had a hand in some of the adaptations that went under the title of the Ruth Rendell Mysteries. Whatever the combination of factors, it gave Baker, who has died aged 80 of pneumonia, his greatest success. By his father ’s will in 1806 George, aged 25, was the major beneficiary of two substantial properties in Northampton in St Catherines and College Lane including his father’s wool-stapling business and a further property in Harpole leased to his uncle. Much of what we know about George Baker comes from two obituaries one that appeared in the local newspapers 5 and another from the Gentleman ’s Magazine 6. The National Archives; Kew, Surrey, England; Records of the Prerogative Court of Canterbury, Series PROB 11; Class: PROB 11; Piece: 1442 George died on 12 October 1851 at his house in Marefair. The esteem to which George Baker was held by the many people and organisations with which he was associated is captured in the tribute paid by the Mechanics Institute of which he was Vice-Chairman.Mechanics’ Institutes are educational establishments, originally formed to provide adult education, particularly in technical subjects, to working men. Northampton’s Mechanics’ Institute opened in 1832 in George Row. Baker was one of the artists who recorded the song Shalom from Holland (written by Simon Hammelburg and Ron Klipstein) as a token of solidarity to the Israeli people, threatened by missiles from Iraq, during the first Gulf War in 1991. To have been out of the theatrical mainstream for such a period in mid-career was taking a risk, and in the early 1970s he started a business making training films. He even thought of giving up acting. But the RSC came to the rescue, and unforgettable, too, was Baker's corrupt Tiberius in I, Claudius (1976), the BBC adaptation of Robert Graves's novels about the Roman emperor Claudius that proved one of its greatest drama successes. Whether these activities inspired him to do something better or purely fired his interest we do not know, but in 1815, aged 34, he issued proposals for his county history.

Richard Baker owned property in Harpole but was the residence of his brother William (The National Archives; Kew, Surrey, England; Records of the Prerogative Court of Canterbury, Series PROB 11; Class: PROB 11; Piece: 1442) A Richard Baker was christened at Harpole on 30th October 1747 son of John and Elizabeth Baker.

The band experienced a brief return to the international charts in 1992 when the song " Little Green Bag" was used in the title sequence of the film Reservoir Dogs and in Machos, a Chilean soap opera in 2003. The song is also featured in a Moto X smartphone commercial circa 2013. The first part was published in 1822, the second in 1826, and the third, completing the first volume, in 1830. This volume contains the hundreds of Spelho, Newbottle Grove, Fawsley, Wardon, and Sutton. The fourth part, containing the hundreds of Norton and Cleley, appeared in 1836, and about one-third of a fifth part, containing the hundred of Towcester, in 1841. At this point, when the work had not proceeded to more than a quarter of its intended extent, it was unfortunately destined to terminate abruptly. J. Britton and E. W.

Jones, Descriptive Account of Literary Works of John Britton, pts. ii-iii (1849-50), appendix pp. 91—2.Hans Bouwens (as George Baker) (composer, vocals, guitar, mandolin, flute, piano and organ) 1968–1977, 1982–1989. It seems likely that Baker had underestimated the size of his planned undertaking. From the beginning, his method was to send out printed questionnaires to parish clergy seeking information on local agricultural conditions, geology, natural history, manors, antiquities, charities, and worthies. This was not his sole method of research planning a personal visit to every parish. The time and cost involved must have been significant despite him assuring John Britton ‘I travel very economically’. Bouwens was born near the end of World War II on 8 December 1944 as the son of a single mother on the Gravenstraat in Hoorn, at or near the location where Jan Pieterszoon Coen was born in 1587. [1] Months before Bouwens was born, his father, Peppino Caruso, a former Italian soldier from Calabria put to labor by the Germans in nearby Grosthuizen, had been killed while attempting to escape when he was to be transferred to Germany. [2] Bouwens was raised by his mother and his grandparents, Willemke Woudstra and Johannes Bouwens (1886–1952), first in Hoorn and from 1957 on the Wandelweg in Wormerveer. [1] There, he sang and played guitar in a schoolband ( The Jokers) with Bob Ketzer, [3] but at the age of 14 he left school and took jobs unloading ships on the Zaan and eventually as a factory worker at a lemonade factory. [4] In 1961, he took the stage name "Body" and formed the band Body and the Wild Cats, with Bob Ketzer and his brother Ruud as well as Gerrit Bruyn on bass, all from Wormerveer.

Marefair was to be home of George Baker until 1851 and his sister Ann Elizabeth Baker until 1861. Why does it matter? The Bakers were a couple devoted to the history, culture and heritage of the town and county. There were several dimensions to their lives as we shall see. George Baker (1781-1851) Many present-day residents of Northampton will know of Hazelrigg House in Marefair. It ’s likely though they will know little of the house’s former residents. It is sometimes called Cromwell House based on a tenuous and undocumented connection with Oliver Cromwell. The Hesilrige (later Hazelrigg) family lived there from at least 1667 until 1817. After standing empty some years, number 33 Marefair as it was then known, was sold in 1831 to Mr George Baker a local historian and antiquarian.George and Ann were children of Richard and Ann Baker. Evidence suggests his father originated from nearby Harpole 1. Richard and Ann were married in 1777 in Barby, Ann ’s home parish. They had at least four children, George born in 1781, Ann Elizabeth in 1786, Richard in 1792 who died in 1793 and Ester who is mentioned in her father’s will in 1806 2. Johannes " Hans" Bouwens (born 8 December 1944), known as George Baker, is a Dutch singer and songwriter who, with his band George Baker Selection, scored three international hits; " Little Green Bag" (1969), " Paloma Blanca" (1975) and " Santa Lucia by Night" (1985). A string of singles and albums followed; the second single, "Dear Ann," was such a success that Baker resigned from his job in the lemonade factory and became a full-time musician. Not all band members followed suit, and besides Bouwens, the "Selection" from mid 1970 was formed by Jan Visser, Jan Hop (drums), Jacques Greuter and George Thé (voice, guitar, bass). In March 1971 Jan Visser left the band to be replaced by Cor Veerman. [9] Besides scoring hits with his own Selection, he also wrote songs for others, including BZN, The Shoes, Andy Star, and Next One. In 1974, singer Lida Bond joined the Selection, and combining her voice with Baker's proved highly successful. [6] These theological trends were important even at a local level as George and Ann Baker were to later become Unitarians themselves. They would have actually “crossed the road” in King street when they moved from King Street Independent to Kings Street Unitarian.
