Charles Salways, Somerset & Devon, 1881

In Reply to: Re: Charles Salway, Cullompton, Devon by Nigel Salway of 171

Nigel,
When and where was your grandfather born, married and died? Whom did he marry, when and where? What did he name his children? That information should help narrow down the search for your great-grandfather.

I don't know of any Charles Salways (Solways) in Dorset and did not find any on the 1881 census. The name is far more common in Devon and Somerset. In addition to the Charles Salways mentioned in previous postings, these were on the 1881 census with Somerset or Devon connections, listed in descending age order:

74, b. Drayton, Som.; at Churchyard Cottage, North Curry, Som., with Harriet, 64, b. Curry Rivel, Som.

40, b. Fivehead, Som.; at Swell Road, Swell, Som., with Ann, 46, b. Isle Abbots, Som.; Harry, 11, Fivehead; Mary Jane, 9, and James, 7, Swell, Som.

35, b. Curry Rivel, Som.; at North St., Langport Eastover, Som., with Eliza, 33, London; Eliza, 11, Annie, 10, and Henrietta, 8,Curry Rivel; William, 7, Rose, 2, and Mary A., 5 months, Langport.

34, b. Other Som.; at West Buckland, Som., with Annie, 30, Creech, Som; V.E.B. (f.), 10, Creech; T.G. (f.) 7, Ottery, Som.

27, b. St. Budeaux, Devon; at 29 Pembroke St., Stoke Damerel, Devon, with Sarah A., 19, Devonport.

21, (Solway), b. St. Budeaux; H.M. Brig Sealark, Plymouth St. Andrew, Devon.

18, b. Cullompton, Devon; at Church St. Cullompton, son of John, 47, Dunkeswell; Caroline, 44, Broadhembury; brother of Mary Ann, 16; Emma, 14; William, 11; Ellen, 4, all b. Cullompton.

10, (Solway) b. Bristol; at 10 Burlington St., Weston Super Mare, Som., son of William Solway, 37, Othery, Som. and Mina, 36, Porlock, Som.; brother of Florence E., 12, Bristol; Gilbert, 8, Weston Super Mare. John Webb, unm., 37, Weston Super Mare, also was in the household.
