Charlotte Ragen born 1787
« on: Sunday 03 June 18 20:13 BST (UK) »
I have been sent a copy of a family bible with some limited info about a Charlotte Ragen. It says she was born on 9 Apr 1787 and married a William Bartlett (born 1787) in Dovercourt in 1807.
It also mentions a death of a William Ragen on 5 March 1852. I hope the name Ragen is correct (Possibly Regan ??) as the word died has been written 'dide'. Charlotte and William had at least 3 children, James 1814, David 1818 and Charlotte abt 1820. Charlotte's birth in the Bible is very precise as it says 7:30 in the morning of 21 Jan 1820. However the Baptismal record from Dovercourt church shows birth as 4 Feb 1821 and baptism on 7 Oct 1821.
Any help with Charlotte R, William B or William R most welcome. Would love to know where they were from originally, etc. Thanks

Bible entry very small and difficult to read seems to say 'Charlotte Bartlett me mother dide 6th October 1850', so will have missed the census if this is correct. To confuse things her daughter was also Charlotte Bartlett (Abt 1821- 30 Aug 1905)

There's a William Bartlett baptized at Romsey in Hampshire, 28 August 1786. Parents David + Jane. So that might be a possibility.

Many thanks jonw65 for the most useful info I will need to research the Hants connection as there is a David among the Bartlett children. I think there was a very strong link to fishing and the sea.

The marriage is 23 November 1807 at dovercourt. Unfortunately it says by banns and both of the Parish. Witnesses don’t seem to be daily either. However, charlottes surname is spelled ‘Ragent’ with a t.
