yes it seems to be, so many thanks.
It is unlikely that he was an only child at the time of large families but we have no idea who they were and how many brothers and sisters........
Likewise with father John

If you've found the man in 1881, you MUST know where he was born........and where his mother was born

You should be working back from your grandfather...........get his birth cert for factual info about his parents

hi Flip
Sorry but we are very, very new at this
We do not know where the parents originated from and the refusal to discuss didn't help.
Charles George was born in Clerkenwell London and like most of our descendants lived in the East End of London in Shoreditch.
We suspect that John might have come from Ireland and think that Anorah is possibly an Irish name.

which country/area were they from?

My G/F refused to allow any discussion regarding his father, Charles George McCoy 1869/71 or his father John ( date ?) or any of their siblings so we do not know much about them except they were often involved with the police which might explain the reluctance.
Family stories tell that Charles had 3 sisters, all of whom emigrated , but, the only possible trace of Charles might be the 1881 census ( right age) and he had all brothers.
That census, if it is him, has his mother as Anorah and there seem to be no trace of any marriage to John or his death that we can find.
Any views or tips would be appreciated.
