Charles Galbraith EDWARDS

Got it now thanks Geoff.

I had Charles senior born in Vic. with the wrong father so that error has been removed.

Birth 1851 REID Jane - James Galbraith - Ann Sarah UNK b. Melbourne, Vic. #9240


I can't find Jane/Jean Edwards in 1871 census. May or may not mean they arrived in England after the census.

Charles born abt 1845 England Father = John.
Arrival of Charles senior b. abt 1845 England in Vic. ? then his arrival married back in England 1870 - 1872.

Arrival of Charles G born 1870 in England in Vic. 1881 - 1896.

6x Charles Edwards born abt 1845 in 1851 census with father = John
Charles G was back in Vic by at least 1887..

Victoria, Australia, St. Peter's Eastern Hill, Confirmations, 1872-1955:
Charles Galbraith Edwards
Birth Year: abt 1872
Confirmation Date: 22 Jul 1887
Confirmation Age: 15
Confirmation Place: Melbourne, Bourke, Victoria
Parish: St Peter

Thanks Geoff.

That helps.

I have not traced Charles and Jean Thompson after 1881.

Thanks Geoff.

Not as popular as John Edwards.

Death 1864 REID James Galbraith - James - Agnes b. AYR d. Vic. #1831

Birth 1851 REID Jane - James Galbraith - Ann Sarah UNK b. Melbourne, Vic. #9240

Marriage is not in Vic. index so don't have mother's maiden name yet to look for a death in Vic. for Jean/Jane.

Has to be Grayling. Sister was a witness in 1875 when Jean remarried.

No death in Vic. index for Jane/Jean as Thompson with mmn = Grayling. Ditto with father as James Reid.

Charles G was 15 in 1887 so I'd expect one parent to be in Melbourne at that time.

No death in Vic. index for Charles W that fits with those parents.

John had died by 1870 and Charles was the eldest son.

Too many in the 1851 census and I can't find any tree.

Charles in 1873 was a musical instrument manufacturer.
