  • Notes 
    • Charles was the fourth child of George and Elizabeth Tamar Streeter. He married Martha Skilton during 1856 at Faversham. Witnesses to the marriage were George Streeter, Charles' father, and Mary Wilmot. Charles was recorded as being a carpenter at that time and his father, George, was noted as then being a coal merchant. The choice of Mary Wilmot as the second witness is a curious one. Mary Wilmot was a distant cousin by marriage to Charles through the Gregory family and certainly not an obvious choice for a witness to his marriage. However, she may have been a great friend of Martha Skilton as, thus far, no relationship has been found to have existed between Martha and Mary.

      Curiously, Charles and his family sought their fortunes out in parishes away from Faversham and indeed, only their first child had been born at Faversham - Fanny E., circa 1857. The next four children were all born at Boughton-under-Blean and the last known child was born circa 1871 at Canterbury.

      Fthe family was still living at Canterbury at the time of the 1881 census. Charles was maintaining his occupation of carpenter while his daughter, Fanny, worked as a housemaid for a Joseph Hunt of Canterbury.

      By 1891 Charles, Martha, Fanny, who was still unmarried, and Walter, also unmarried, were living at 1 Tudor Road, Canterbury. Charles was described as a carpenter-joiner and Walter a printer's compositor. Also living with them was daughter Emma, her husband, Edward Lancefield, and a teenager by the name of Dora Lancefield. Dora was described as a visitor and not a grandchild. She had been born at Camberwell during 1876 or 1877 and it is difficult to tell if Dora was Emma's child or simply a very young sister-in-law. Edward Lancefield was also working as a compositor.
