Hi Sally i,m looking for a Charles James age in 40,s born in Devon I have his wife and children in Great Torrington in the 1851 census but not him. No one has looked for him i assume he would not go to far. If it is not enough info i understand. I really need to find out where Charles was born so i can further my research. Any help would be gratefully received. Thanks Cherry
