Charles Henry YATES was born in 1879 to Edwin yates and Margaret Beavan. Siblings were Lillian Yates b1881 and Margaret Yates b1891. Lilian had a son James Edwin Yates b1900 who according to the 1901 census was living with his grandparents Edwin & Margaret and aunty Marg.
Charles married Annie Webster in 1900 and Maud Plant in 1901. He may have married others as well between 1901 and 1909. In 1909 he married Mary Ellen Bizant in Australia and in 1912 he married Ellen Amelia Bingham. In 1912 he was jailed for bigamy (2 years hard labour in Qld).
In 1915 he joined the AIF and went to Gallipoli. he returned to UK and to Australia. He died in 1940. I am keen to make contact with the other families' descendants.
