The Parents of Charles

Charles’ Early Years

Charles Charles Benedict acquired the Deed to Lot 20 in Concession 11 of Hungerford Township in 1852. He subsequently sold off 25 acres in 1858 and the rest, 75 acres, in 1869.

Charles can be found on the 1861 Census living in Hungerford Township, Hastings County with Willet Brooks, presumably his cousin. However it seems Charles made it onto the 1861 Census twice, as he also appears at the household of his sister Susan Wager in Sophiasburgh, Prince Edward County.

It seems Charles left Canada in 1862 and headed to California where he was a Foreman on a Ranch in Douglas County, working for a man named Clauber. He remained there for about six years before returning to Canada and Hastings County in the late 1860's, then marrying Martha. They had two sons, Frank and Clayton. See the Frances Becker document in his father Ard's biography.
