Family History Help

My wife was born a Carter and I have traced back her family tree to the marriage of one William Carter to a widow, Jane Beasley (nee Webster) in St Wilfrid’s Church, Kibworth on 27 November 1797. 

I have not been able to trace the lineage further back with any certainty, perhaps because this branch of the Carter family were nonconformists (Baptists), and so don’t usually appear in Anglican records.

One of the sons of this marriage (Charles Carter, born 1808) is my wife’s ancestor.

He subsequently was a baker and leased the mill at Saddington for many years. I am aware that there have been Carters in Kibworth since medieval times and wondered if anybody knows anything more about this branch of the family?
