Charles Mitchener was one of Ari’s 5x great-grandfathers. He died young, and sadly very little is known about him. He was the youngest son of Richard Mitchener and Elizabeth Holloway, born on 1 Nov 1810 in Goodworth Clatford, Hampshire, and baptised on the 11th (the notes in the Hampshire baptisms collection on Findmypast say “11 days, nee Holloway, lab”).
On 19 May 1832, Charles married Mary Henrietta Smith at the village church of St Peter.
Charles and Mary had four children. In the 1841 census, Charles is described as an agricultural labourer. He is also described as a labourer on all his children’s baptism records (http://www.knightroots.co.uk/transcriptions/Parishes_G/Goodworth_Clatford/Baptisms/baptisms.htm). When his daughter Frances Mary Edith Mitchener married Gabriel Wild in 1875, she described her late father as a ‘woodman’.
Charles died on 26 Aug 1845, at the age of 34, and was buried on the 28th in the churchyard. The cause of death was “inflammation of the leg”, and the informant was his wife Mary, who was present at the death.
