CHARLES SHRUBSOLE

1851-1896


This family, especially Charles is a mystery to me at the moment, so if anyone can help me out I’d be very grateful.  According to the census returns Charles was born in Folkestone, but I can find no record of a birth for him in Elham RD or a baptism around 1851 which is approximately the year he would have been born according to ages given in the census returns.  In fact the first census return I can find him in is 1881 after he has married.  I have looked for him in 1851, 61 & 71 census returns but cannot find him anywhere.  His marriage transcript shows his father’s name is Thomas, so I have tried looking at all of the Thomas Shrubsole’s in 51,61, & 71 to see if I can find him that way but I can’t!

This family especially intrigues me as whilst we were, for the Folkestone Family History Society, transcribing the M.I.’S in Cheriton Road Cemetery, Folkestone, I came across a headstone in the graveyard:

Headstone with 3 kerbs and 4 turrets.

IN // LOVING MEMORY // OF // MARY NUTLEY // WHO FELL ASLEEP 2ND FEB 1896 // AGED 76 YEARS //

ALSO //

ETHELDREDA A SHRUBSOLE // DIED 9TH MAY 1961 AGED 73 // FAREWELL LOVED ONE // AT REST  ? JOHNS//


The name Etheldreda stood out as unusual for the times; she was presumably named after St Etheldreda.  She was the daughter of Charles Shrubsole above and granddaughter of Mary Nutley.  Knowing all this and I still can’t tie them to the tree!

I am going to purchase the marriage certificate for Charles to see if it shows up anything that isn’t showing on the transcript that might give me a clue, so fingers crossed.

Charles’ son William James died on the Somme in France 15th September 1916.  His story can be found here on one of the World War I Centenary pages.
