Charles also served on the Board of Guardians during 1869.
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. He then moved to 6 Wellington Square by 1881 with a new wife - Eleanor (Ellen Innocent) - also a widower, they having married in 1865, and a grand-daughter (Ethel V. Innocent aged 7)
