    Charles was the son of William and Kezia Andrews, born and Baptised in Bishops Caundle (or Caundle Bishop) in 1843

    I have traced him through to 1871 when he is in the Chelsea Barracks, a Private in the 2nd Bn Scots Fusilier Guards

    I've found nothing that looks likely after that :(

    It looks like his Service Record is available on FMP. He was discharged on 12th December 1874 at the age of 31 years having served 9 years, 358 days.

    Have sent you a message. :)

    Good find, but looking at the original it says Charles was born in Taunton :(

    I like that - although it does say that his place of birth is Somerset. :confused:

    Need to find the couple in 1901 to see if there are any changes. ;)

    Charles Frederick Andrews . Sep 1892 Falmouth. (mmn Eustice)

    Charles Andrews/Elizabeth Mary Eustice. Sep 1881 Falmouth.

    Not sure this helps to establish his identity.

    Charles Andrews born in Somerset 1842, 1843 and 1844

    hmmm, my Charles was born in the Sherborne district, which is mainly in Dorset, though borders Somerset. It does contain places that used to be in Somerset during the C19th, though Bishops Caundle isn't one of those ...

    There is a Charles ANDREWS baptised 19 June 1842 at Nettlecombe, Somerset - which is not too far from Taunton - parents James & Elizabeth ANDREWS, so could he be the Charles ANDREWS in the 1891 census? No, he is living with a wife Alice in the 1901 census of Nailsea so cannot be the Charles ANDREWS living in Cornwall. The Charles ANDREWS that Brentor Boy found for you in the 1891 census is shown as a Soldier, born c1841 at Taunton, in the 1881 census of Budock, Cornwall, in the barracks at Pendennis Castle. Can't find him in the 1871 census with any certainty. There is however a Service Record for a Charles ANDREWS born c1841 at Taunton on FMP. Can't give you full details, but his intended place of residence when he was discharged in July 1881 was Falmouth.

    I wonder your Charles emigrated? For example, there is a Charles ANDREWS, aged 37, born England, who emigrated to Oneida, New York, a Farm Labourer in the 1880 US census but then I cannot seem to find him in any other census after that, so am unable to find out when he emigrated to the USA.

    Thank you for your help everyone, like Janet I'm inclined to think he emigrated but I can find nothing conclusive :(

    There are a couple of Charles Andrews who were in Halifax. In 1881 one was a commercial salesman and in 1891 he was a brewery rep. He was not married. I think the same one was there as retired in 1901 and at that time he was married . Arrived in 1875. Birth seems to be out a year, but born in England.

    There is a marriage on 22 October 1870 at St. Jude's Church, Upper Chelsea of a Charles Andrews (age 27), a soldier whose abode is given as Chelsea Barracks, to Elizabeth Phillips (age 37) spinster of 78 or 178 Lion Street.

    Charles' father is named as William Andrews, a labourer.

    Two deaths registered in the Kensington Registration District (which covers Chelsea):-

    Elizabeth Andrews (42) - March Q. 1875

    Charles Andrews (33) - Dec. Q 1876

    The ages tie up with those on the marriage certificate.

    The only thing that is off, is that in the 1871 census, I am sure Charles was listed as an unmarried soldier.

    Or there is a death of a 35 year old Charles Andrews in Dec Q 1879 Kensington Registration District (missed that one).
