Michael I am interested in your Charles John Kirkby, B 1861 Yorkshire, D India 1904. I am seeking a Charles John Kirby, B not known, M ?in England to Emily Newman, D before 1919. Occupation given as "independent" on the marriage certificate of his son, Cyril Terence Charles Kirby, my grandfather, who was B at sea off the coast of South Africa c. 1893. I have been unable to trace the marriage of Charles and Emily (if there really was one), Charles' death or the birth certificates of their children. If he died in India in 1904 that could explain both why I cannot find his death and why they were in a ship when their son was born - en route to India - perhaps.
My Charles John Kirby had two children, Cyril and Kathleen Margaret Kirby. Both emigrated to Australia just after WW1. Kathleen never married nor had children, Cyril had two children, Terence B 1921 and Mary.
Can you tell me where you found this information about Charles John Kirkby?
