In Response To: Re: History of Charnley name ()

Robert Charnley was a widower when he married Margaret Jane Bridson in 1859. I can’t find the name of his first wife but suspect that it may have been Elizabeth Keen (son Lawrence b Dec 1853 had a mother called Elizabeth):

Possible marriage (Ancestry’s transcription):

Event Type Marriage
Registration Quarter Jul-Aug-Sep
Registration Year 1849

Robert Charnley probably married one of the following people
Name James Balshaw
Name James Bolshaw
Name John Bonsell
Name Ann Dakin
Name James Duffield

...and it’s possible that this is her death:
