He (Christopher) was born in 1562 and was the son of William Baret of Westhall, Suffolk, by his second wife, Margaret Pettishaw. By trade he was a grocer, having been apprenticed by his stepfather in London. He acquired Suckling House from John Suckling in 1595, and he lived there for several years.

He died "very ancient" in 1649 and his wife in 1660-1, and they were both buried in St Andrews (Norwich)".
