Primary events

  • Birth: Charlotte Butterfant was born on 30 August 1802 in Rackheath, Norfolk, England, LDS Member submission in IGI says 5th September in South Acre (which is close to Castle Acre) - parents are Mark BUTTERFANT and Sarah KEMP. I have found an original Parish Register entry for Charlotte in Rackheath and father is actually March BUTTERFANT and Sarah nee KEMP - see exhibit.1
  • Christening: She was christened on 5 September 1802 in Rackheath, England.
  • Marriage: She married Ebenezer Giles on Wednesday, 27 June 1821 in Rackheath, England, when they were 18 years ~&~ 18 years, 9 months and 28 days old. Ebenezer is from Rockland. The marriage was by license, and by consent of parents. It was witnessed by Mary BATELY, Chris DAVY and Edward STONE. All 5 signed the register.1,2
  • Death: Charlotte died in 1832 in Thurnham, Kent, England, Possibly Thornham or Thurnham Kent buried 9th Dec 1832. There is serious doubt over this death. Too late (as Ebenezer was said to be a widower in 1830) and no other connection to this place for this family. Burial register for Kirstead is not on the Original Parish Register site from LDS, has not been transcribed by LDS nor NFHS. (Aged 29 years, worked back from recorded birth date).
  • Burial: She was buried on 9 December 1832 in St Mary's Churchyard, Thurnham, Kent, England, aged 30.3

Secondary circumstances

  • Married Name: Her married name was Giles.
