Hi Adrian, (but consciously posting to the group in case others are

My mother again - she wants to know if you've come across the publication:
"Interesting incidents connected with the life of George Bickers,
originally a farmer's apprentice at Laxfield... being an autobiography ...
from 1809 to 1881 inclusive."
(Lowestoft, no date).

She says -

Long title, but I have read extracts and it gives a good account of life
for a young man in Laxfield up to May 1825 when he left there.

In a publication I have which includes items on Laxfield, dated 1841, there
are 3 Bicker names. James Bicker (Head of Household) ; Henry Bicker
(HoH) ; and Charlotte Bicker also HoH.

Best wishes,
