EVELYN: I tried to find out if Charlie was born in Edinburgh from the Register House, and enclose their reply. [Not to hand.] It may not mean anything but that he was not registered at birth. Very many were not registered in those days, even in Edinburgh, and it he was born in Australia it would be even less likely. I always thought he was born in Australia but have no evidence for this, only surmise.

Your father [Charles] must have been about 9 years old when his father died - his mother presumably having died previously, and our grandmother took him to live with her at Kelvinside. We have a photograph of the family of about 1857-58 - Grandmother with her son Willie on her knee, aged about I year; our grandfather with an arm round Amelia aged about 5; Adelaide standing behind grandmother, aged about 3 and Charlie standing behind grandmother, aged about 9. A very good looking but sad looking boy.
