Charles SCALES & Ellen SMITH


        Charles & Ellen SCALES are my maternal grandmother's parents i.e. my Great Grandparents.
        And apart from a few dates, and photographs that my mother has, I know very little else about them!

        Charles SCALES was born 21 May 1852, in either Baldock or Hertford, in Hertfordshire, U.K.  I haven't, 
        as yet, acquired a copy of his birth certificate - but it's on my list!

        Ellen SMITH was born 11 April 1847 in Stevenage, Hertfordshire.
        My mother has a sampler stitched by Ellen in 1861, when she was aged just 14. 

        Charles and Ellen were married 24 September 1874, in Stevenage - this was one of the first records that 
        I found on first using the I.G.I. Index 

        Their children are:  
 
Charles born abt 1875/6 . died, aged 6 months
Bertram Charles born 28 September 1879 in Clothall, Hertfordshire
Elizabeth [Lizzie] Ellen born 8 October 1881 in .
Florence Harriet born 21 January 1887 in Baldock, Hertfordshire
Daisy Beatrice born 22 March 1889 in Wisbech, Cambs. died 1993 - aged 104 years!
Without my grandmother, Florence Harriet's birthday book, I wouldn't have many, if any, of the above dates! On the 1881 U.K. Census, we find Charles & Ellen living at Clothall End, Clothall, Hertford:
