Charles William Partridge 1864 - 1911

Son of Ann Garlick and Charles Partridge, brother to Great Granddad Arthur.

Charles was born on 2nd June 1864 at Appleby, Leicestershire. Living in and around Leicestershire I found I had never heard of Appleby so had to research where it was!

Appleby, a village, a township, and a parish on the confines of Leicester and Derby. The village stands 1 1/2 mile WSW of the Mease river and the Ashby-de-la-Zouch Canal, and about 2 miles from Measham railway station. It has a post, money order, and telegraph office under Atherstone. It is sometimes called Appleby-Magna or Great Appleby, while a hamlet a little S of it, in the same parish, is called Appleby-Parva or Little Appleby.

Charles married Elizabeth Price and had 7 children
