  • Notes 
    • A coachman, he is said to have eloped with the daughter of his employer (priv com). This seems highly plausable in view of what we know of their later life. Maria was obviously well educated, and became a teacher at the local school.
      Their only daughter was born in 1836 at Edenham, which was where Maria's father lived. Their 4th and last child Richard was born in 1838, but did not survive. In 1842 Charles had an illegitimate son Charles by another woman. Maria died in 1855 in the Bourn RGD which includes Edenham.
      In 1860 Charles married Mary Knight
