Were you born 22 years after your parents' marriage with about 5 siblings?
Were you adopted by your Mother's new husband after her marriage?
Have you talked to your siblings about Charles?
Some of the older siblings might even have visited grandparents?

Hi Derek

Did you ever meet Charles, or ask your mother about him? Do you have any idea when he was last seen?

I don't think he was the son of Abraham Greening - the marriage witness George was Abraham's son, so I wonder if they "invented" Charles's father rather than state not known? Just a thought, it often happens.
