Charles also served on the Board of Guardians during 1869[2]. In 1861, he was resident at 1 Harold Place with his wife (although her name is given as Katherine), however their youngest child - Benoni is not shown as living with his parents - he would have been 12 at this time - possibly living with a relative elsewhere[3]. He then moved to 6 Wellington Square by 1881 with a new wife - Eleanor (Ellen Innocent) - also a widower, they having married in 1865[4], and a grand-daughter (Ethel V. Innocent aged 7)[5] He was instrumental in the setting up of the Hastings Omnibus Company. By 1891, he is shown as living at 40 Quarry Road with Eleanor[6]. At the time of his death, he left an estate valued at £1,250[7].
