Charles GREGORY
published by Pat Hase on Sun, 11/10/2020 - 11:34

Can anyone find what happened to Charles GREGORY?  He was christened at St John's in Weston-super-Mare in 1820 (son of John GREGORY - one of the Weston Worthies) and married Harriet BRYANT in Bristol in 1842.  In 1851 he was living with his wife in the Royal Crescent in Weston but in 1861 he is staying with his mother in Vale Cottage, Bristol Road, while Harriet is with her mother in Park House, Park Place.  In 1871 Harriet states that she is a widow.  Thanks.

Totally stumped by this one, Pat. Searched Ancestry, Findmypast, FreeReg and FamilySearch - deaths, burials, marriages, emigration, family trees etc- all to no avail. Possible change of name?

Thanks Dave, always good to have a second opinion even if negative!  I'm looking now for all the variants of GREGORY.

He had several siblings. I had a quick check to see if he was living with any of them, but no luck. Might be worth looking to see if any left a Will. I so, there might be some kind of reference to him in there.

Hi Pat, did Charles and Harriet have a son John Isaac or a daughter Emily Clara?

If so there's a couple of Weston-super-Mare newspaper references one for Emily marrying in 1865 which calls her the daughter of Charles but doesn't say the late Charles. and another for John that refers to his father as the late Charles Gregory in 1874.

If they are his children then it could narrow down the death date to after 1865 and confirm Harriet's statement about being a widow.

The following from the Weston-super-Mare Gazette, and General Advertiser 25 September 1858 might give a clue as to when Charles and Harriet split up:

Caution - This is to give Notice, that I will not be answerable for any Debt or Debts which my wife, Harriet Gregory, may contract from the date hereof. (signed)

Charles Gregory

dated 2, Crescent, Weston-super-Mare, Sept. 24, 1858

Wow, thanks for that - that is great - not for them though! - But as you say it does give something more to work with. And those children were theirs as well born in 1847 and 1848.  Many thanks - John GREGORY is Worthy No 14 so I'm grateful for your and Dave's help with them.

Thanks to your help - I've found his death!   It was in London in 1870. Now, where was he buried?
