Northampton Independent, 3rd August 1918
Stephen Craxton

Patriarch of the Potato Patch
Bozeat’s Veteran Food Producer

Mr Stephen Craxton, of “Sunny View,” Bozeat, celebrated his 94th birthday last September, and claims with pride to be the oldest food producer in this district. He still finds himself able to plant and generally cultivate his garden; indeed, he is never so happy as when engaged in some horticultural employment. One of his five children is an old-age pensioner, and he has numerous grand and great-grandchildren.

Note: Stephen Craxton, the son of Daniel, a labourer and Ann, was born at Bozeat on 21 Sept. 1823. [died 1922]
