Personal Information    |    All    |    PDF

  • Name ASTLEY Charles 
    • Electoral rolls have Charles living in Wanganui (1880-81), Marsden (nr Whangarei), Northland (1885-86) and (Rotorua) Bay of Plenty (1905-06). Documents relating to his death describe him as 'boarding house keeper', Rotorua.

      There is a Whangarei school record for a Joseph Law'n (Lawrence?) Astley, born in May 1879, whose parent/guardian is stated to be Charles Astley. No birth of a Joseph Astley is registered in New Zealand. Also, this record gives Joseph's last day at the school as 25 April 1888, with his destination Australia.
    Born c1857 
    • Charles's birth was not registered in New Zealand. The date given is calculated from the age at death (51) given in his death register entry (typically unreliable!).

    • The exact date of the marriage is given on the birth certificate of Charles Raymond Astley, Charles and Mary Ann's first child registered in New Zealand.

      As shown on my Astley family page, two more children were registered to Charles and Mary Ann in NZ. Family trees found on Ancestry.com credit the couple with a total of six children (though not a Joseph Lawrence).
