Broad Street Wrington ARCHIVE
Personal Quest - Charles Young
Charles Young - Manchester

My Grandfather, also Charles Young is shown on the 1881 census to have either been born or lived in Wrington sometime after his birth in about 1872. His mother Sarah Young, maiden name unknown, married my great grandfather, George Young, she gives her origin as Wrington also on that census. At that time they appeared to have moved to Dial Hill in Clevedon.

As you can see below, I have lots of information on my family as they appear on 3 censuses in your area, except for George Young's parents and Sarah Young's maiden name and their birth and marriage details.

Charles Young moved to the Manchester area in the 1930s with 3 of his children,
Joan, Ellen and Sidney Young ( my father) leaving his wife Emily in Somerset with 2 other children, Winifred and Margaret Young, I think, and there may still be some of the family in Somerset, probably in Bath, but we lost touch many years ago.

I have only recently begun my research into my family and have a lot of work to do yet and look forward to hearing from anyone who can assist.
