Charles W Gray- Sheffield. Parents?
« on: Friday 16 August 19 15:13 BST (UK) »
Hi,

Looking for the parents of a charles W Gray born in sheffield in 1823. He married a ellen bullos (Don't know her parents either) She was born 1826 in sheffield. They married 1845 in sheffield.
In 1871 census, charles and ellen are living in sheffield and there's a darcie gray and it says she's the mother to the head of the house. I don't know her maiden name. His father isn't there, so i presume he's deceased at this point.

Thankyou! :)

Charles is with his parents in 1841 -- so that would have given father's name.

In addition the image of the marriage of Charles to Ellen is also on Find My Past.
