Looking for Charles BURLEY born in Cornwall in 1821

Query by ursula

Have all the UK census' from 1841 to 1901 and Charles is in all of them, but can't find any information pre 1841, or post 1901, so I don't know where he was born, except I know it was Tregony,Cornwall, and on the 1841 census he was living in Fowey. He moved to Gurnsey, married and raised a large family there,in St. Sampson, but I cannot find any record of his death, or of his Marriage, his wife's name is Mary Ann. Do not know if he was married in England or Gurnsey, presume Gurnsey, as on the 1841 census he is still single.

Would like to know how I go about finding out where to find the records, or if anyone can help I would be greatful.

I see what you mean. I didn't find much more.
wife's name was Mary Ann Wilcock born in Merriott, Cornwall in 1828.
Father's name Richard born about 1795 according to 1851 Channel Islands Census.
Found a tree in ancestry that tells me Mary Ann and John BURLEY were married on the 22 April 1851 at Vale Church, Geunsey.(can't see any source)
I checked
1871 Channel Islands Census
1891 Channel Islands Census
and in the
1881 Channel Islands Census
about Mary A. Burley Name:
Mary A. Burley
Age: 53

On the tree I mentioned which is the 'Davis Tytler Tree' they give the children as:-

Harriet Jane 1851 1901
Elizabeth (Elsie) Ann Marie Burley 1853
Maria Burley 1855
Florence (Flora) Burley 1858
William Charles Burley 1861
Frederick John Burley 1863
John Alfred Burley 1865 1907
Alice Burley 1867
*Edith Maud Burley 1871 1897
Arthur Burley 1877

*Edith Maud married a 'Davis so this tree probably belongs to a decendant of her's.

My advice is to try Channel Islands Genealogy

Thank you so much for your prompt response.Yes, the information I have about the children is the same as the Davis Tytler Tree.

Mary Ann was married to Charles, so I am a bit confused as to why you have Mary Ann married to John.

Thank you for her birth place and her fathers name and birthdate. Hopefully that will help me go forward.

Good luck with your continued search. Will post any info I amanage to get.

Mary Ann married CHARLES ? Now I'm confused too. I'll go back and have another look.

by janilye on 2011-06-23 21:27:35

Yes you're right. Census says Charles. Titler says Charles. Father of Charles is John. Looks like my silly error.

Thank you. That is a geat help as I did not know Charles' fathers name.
