Charlotte Wolfe ~1801/ 1791?? -1850


1791. A Charlotte Wolfe was baptised to Joseph Wolfe & Sarah Dickens on 16/9/1791 . No other baptism in London available nearer 1800, which the 1841C implies: OK, ages rounded down to the nearest 5 years there, so she could be up to 45 in 1841. Maybe she wanted her husband to think she was much younger than she actaully was! But there is a 1798 baptism in Cambridge to Robert Wolfe & Mary , but Charlotte has Middlesex for her place of birth in the 1 Census that exists for her

1792. A Charlotte Wolfe was baptised 20/5/1792 Camden to John & Sarah Wolfe - another possibility!!, still too early I do not feel there is eveb a 50% chance that Joseph was her father, and do not think there is any way we can ever know!!

1818.Charlotte Wolfe married William Charles Lever Keene on 27/8/1818 at Old Church,Saint Pancras, London. Witnsses were SJ?? Keene and Mary Ann Wolfe . Both bride and groom could write

1842. William Keene,21, eldest son of William Charles Lever Keene , died on 3/9/1842 at Dent de Lion, Thanet. - FMP Newspapers, Kentish Gazette 6/9/1842

1843. William Charles Lever Keene died Thanet Mar 1843. Aged 49, was buried on 10/1/1843 in St John in Thanet (Margate), St John the Baptist - FMP Kent burials, image available . Entry for him, of Lincoln Inn & Dent at Lion in Index to Death Duties Register FMP. His 5 page Will available on a Public member Ancestry tree, but indecipherable!!:

1850.It is likely that Charlotte Keene died Shoreditch Sep 1850 - Buried 15/9/1850 in St Leonard, Shoreditch , aged 55, abode Holywell Street- image on Ancestry , I feel I would need this d.c to be sure this is she and , if so, to see her age- not convinced she could have been born as early as 1791!

But she could have remarried Jun 1844 St Pancras or Sep 1846 W.London , though the 2 marriages I di find in Ancestry London marriages were not she
