Robert CHARNOCK (1806-1847) and Margaret BRADLEY (1811-?)


Robert Charnock was born in 1806 in Lancashire, Liverpool, England.  He married Margaret Bradley on August 28, 1828 at St. Peter's Church in Liverpool.  The children we found were Mary Jane, Robert, Martha (#1), John Henry, Margaret and twins, Martha (#2) and Elizabeth.  The twin, Martha, was named after the death of her sister, Martha.

Robert Charnock was listed under Insolvent Debtors at Court house in Liverpool in 1837.  On the 1841 England/Wales Census, Robert is 35, a stonemason and lived on Pinnington Street in Liverpool.

Robert's death was listed in the quarter of April, May, June 1847 in Liverpool.  He was 41.

The Charnock surname is a locational name from either Heath Charnock or Charnock Richard in Lancashire.  It is a derivative of the word "cairn", rock, stone; hence "rocky district".  The name literally means one who lived near the stones.  We found Liverpool had a large community of Charnock residents.  With such common first names we are unable to identify Robert's parents.

Margaret Bradley was born in 1811 in Preston, Lancashire, England.  She was the wife of the above Robert Charnock and mother of the seven children.  Her husband died at the age of 41.

On April 25, 1849 she married John Jackson.  Their daughter, Sarah Ann Jackson, was christened on May 9, 1850.  On the 1851 England/Wales Census the family was living on Skelhorne Street.  Margaret had previously lived with Robert Charnock on Skelhorne Street.  We do not know if it was the same residence.

We have not found Margaret Bradley-Charnock-Jackson after the 1851 census.  We have no information on her death.

This completes the lines of Charnock and Bradley.
