Finally, through a cousin have Charles Bray and family. Had not been able
to find him after the 1871 census where he was with his family.
Just in case these notes might mean someone else connecting.
Charles is 4 in 1861
son of William and Peggy BRAY
states born Egloshayle, Cornwall, England and is in the Civil Parish
b. abt 1857, age 4 and son.
Registration district is Bodmin
ED, institution, or vessel is 10
1871 is 14, son, b. abt 1857, Egloshayle, Cornwall, England and is in
Egloshayle, Cornwall, England, Bodmin Dist.
Christening: 01 Jan 1857 Egloshayle, Cornwall, England
Father: William BRAY
1907 find a Passenger, Charles Bray, age 49, residence is Eastbourne,
England and he is blind in one eye/left eye I believe, he is married and the
place of birth looks like a bad spelling of Egloshayle.
Going by that, I looked for Charles Bray born 1857 w/ a 2 year span either
way and find in1901 England, Sussex, Eastbourne Charles Bray

NOTE: 1891 is indexed as Brey
In the index though where you click to see other family members, it has
Martha, Susan her mother and her father William Ellis and Charles J. Poray
as Visitor rather than Charles J. Bray and it is very clearly Bray.
