Biography* The most interesting story about Lillian Foster was she was very fond of writing letters which nobody could read. Roy Baxter has an example of her writing in the Baxter Bible when she entered the death of Joseph. Roy describes it as being very neat and artistic but unreadable. She would write to Sir Thomas and he would give it to his wife Mabel saying, you read it I don't know what she is trying to tell me. The best story is the time she sent away for a pair of shoe's and the reply came back. Dear Mrs Baxter, "We don't know what you want but we are sure we have not got it".9 
Death*30 November 1952 Lilian Foster 'Lilly' Baxter died on 30 November 1952 at Runcorn Registration District, Cheshire, England, ; aged 71 years.1,3,10

Occupation* Frederick Martin Furniss was a farmer at Cayton Manor, Newport, Shropshire, England, .1 
Biography* Roy Baxter said "My father always said of them that his sister did the farming while Fred looked after the children, but then he would he was a real family man. Although history of Mary and her sister Alicce says that at Dutton they had to work hard so they were certainly up to it. I went to Caynton Manor many times but can not remember my Aunty Mary, Uncle Fred often came and stayed at Church Farm, so it is perhaps because my brother and I were always at boarding school. The family still farm around Newport."

Birth*19 July 1912 Mona Joyce Baxter was born on 19 July 1912 at Freeford Farm, Lichfield, Staffordshire, England, .1,2 
Biography1925 All of this ended in 1925 when her father gave up the tenancy of the farm and Joyce was devastated at being taken away from her animals at the age of 15. She was now to live in Sutton Coldfield over looking Sutton Park, which was not a bad substitute having many acres in which to walk her dogs. While walking her dogs she watched as people rode their horses and it was not long before she found out that they came from the local riding school in Park Road; and so another chapter started in her life.

The rest of her long life was centered around cats and horses. She had horses for show jumping in the summer and horses for hunting in the winter. She became a very good rider after tuition from her life friend Eddie Fisher, a cavalry man and that is the way she was instructed. She had many good horses well trained and won many competitions.

Her relaxation in the winter was her other love, fox hunting. There are a few stories of her out hunting. There is one of her having a bad fall, breaking a leg, and the farmers carrying her across the fields on a five barred gate ( not very comfortable I would have thought). Another time when the Field Master's horse stopped at a big hedge as did the following horses. A farmer from the back of the field shouted "Let Miss Baxter go she's got a good oss". So she jumped the hedge and the rest of the field were able to proceed. When she gave up riding she followed the hunt in her car until she was 91. She was for some time a Joint Master of South Staffordshire Hunt.1
 
Biography*between 1912 and 1927 Joyce spent her childhood at the farm. She loved the animals, especially the cats which had many kittens. In later life her house in Whittington was called Kitten Castle. She loved the dogs, sheep and calves. She spoke of her wicked father who took the calves away from the cows and made them cry. He also sent animals to the cattle market where the drover hit them with sticks. She once let the sheep into a field of new seeds and the shepherd chased her shouting (I break your bleedy neck if I catch you). She spoke of the lovely walks she had on the farm especially Blue Bell Wood where she spent many happy hours. She was sent to boarding school which she hated all she wanted was to be back at the farm with the animals.1
 
(Household Member) 1939 Register29 September 1939 They was listed as a member of the household in the 1939 Register at 46 Somerville Road, Sutton Coldfield, Warwickshire, England, .2 
Occupation*29 September 1939 She was employed in unpaid domestic duties on 29 September 1939.2 
Residence*1982 She lived in 1982 at Whittington, Staffordshire, England, .1 
Biography Joyce always lived in the same locality as her cousin Roy Baxter. He remembers her coming for Sunday Lunch for 30 years or so, so he got to know her very well. She was always good company but you you soon found out it was best not to argue with her. She was always right and it was easier to agree with her.
She nearly always went with Roy and his daughters when they were hunting or point to pointing.

Till the time she died she was still looking after cats feeding them nothing but the best fresh fish and fillet steak. She drove round to neighboring farms and fed their cats for many years. There was the time when at 90 she could not get her car out of reverse gear so she backed all the way back to this farm visiting the hedge a few times on the way.1
 
Biography Roy Baxter said "As my father was the youngest, and did not get married till he was 49, all my cousins are older than me and in Joyce's case 27 years so. I have always known her as my Aunty Joyce, as did my wife and children. To her friends she was Rae and to any body else most definitely Miss Baxter. She was a very formidable lady."1 
Death*December 2006 She died in December 2006 at age 94.1
