  • Notes 
    • From the 1841 Census (HO107 Piece 787/10 Folio 15 Page 22) Charles, 50, Ginger Pop Maker (?), was with his wife Lydia, 47, and son Jeremiah, 8, at Leighton Buildings, Lakenham, Norwich, Norfolk, England. Also present was William Bayer, 51, Carpenter, the only person reportedly born in the county of Norfolk!

      From the 1851 Census (HO107 Piece 1815 Folio 74 Page 10) Charles, 59, Meat and Pickle Seller, from Hardleigh, Norfolk, was with his wife Lydia, 56, from Blofield, Norfolk, at Layton Row No. 1, Lakenham, Norwich, Norfolk, England. Also present was John Walker, Lodger, 44, Owner of Houses, from London, Middlesex, he was blind.

      From the 1861 Census (RG9 Piece 1216 Folio 54 Page 20) Charles, 70, Peppermint Water Maker, from Hardley, Norfolk, was with his wife Lydia, 67, Peppermint Water Maker's Wife, from Blofield, Norfolk, and son Jeremiah J, 28, Shoemaker, from Lakenham, Norfolk, at 1 Layton Row, Lakenham, Norwich, Norfolk, England.

      From Ed Layton:

      Charles Layton was born on 27th April 1791 at Hardley the son of Charles and Frances Layton (nee Harradence) and baptised first at Hardley on 29th May 1791 then at Reedham on 10th July 1803.

      He was a champion at the Norfolk Wrestling known as the "Celebrated Game Chicken" but lost his title at the Globe Inn, Blofield in 1814. Some time in the 1830s he wrote a pamphlet for the guidance of other would-be wrestlers and those who put such bouts on. Upon his retirement from the ring he earned his living as a ginger beer maker, meat and pickles maker and a pepper-mint water maker.

      On 12th March 1812 at Blofield parish church he married Lydia, the daughter of Charles and Lydia Hardingham who was baptised at the parish church of Blofield on 21st September 1794, and lived for the first two years of their marriage at Lingwood where they had their first child. They then moved to Reedham where four more children were born. Soon after the fourth child the couple moved to The Gates, Lakenham, where four more children were born, and on the 1841 census Charles is shown as living at "Layton Buildings" and on later censuses at "Layton Row", Norwich, but whether these places were named after him is not known.

      Charles died in 1861 and Lydia lived a further two years dying in 1863.
