I am looking for the birth place and parents for Charles Poston; married to Ann Green in Whitchurch parish 1776. They had 11 children. Ann GREEN Poston died in 1805. Charles remarried in 1809 to Mary YARDLEY Poston and had 6 more children with her. Charles (the first) died 1832 and was buried in the Whitchurch parish. By his age at time of death, Charles' birth year was about 1754,but I don't know where he was born.
Charles (junior) son of Ann immigrated to Canada about 1820 or so and was a grocer then a coal merchant. He had 3 half brothers (sons of Mary), Edward, Thomas and William who joined him later in Quebec City and became grocers, also.

Please contact me if you are connected to "my" Postons.
