Charles was the
youngest child of Thomas Lamprell and Elizabeth Beck (or Back). His father
Thomas was born around 1806
and married Elizabeth at Sheldwich, a small village in mid-Kent, in 1834. Subsequently the couple moved to the neighboring
village of Selling. Their eldest son William was baptised at Selling later in that same year. The couple then moved back to
Selling and had 4 other children: Mary (1838-1842), Thomas (1840-?),George (1843-1847) and
Charles (above) who was born at Sheldwich on the 29th August 1845.
certificate and data submitted by Eric Lamprell...
Additional data supplied by Eric on April 27, 2009
Thomas was baptised at Elham in East Kent on the 19 March 1797.
It now appears that, although their
eldest son, William, was baptised there, the couple didn't actually move to
but stayed in SHELDWICH (these are neighbouring villages) as the family was residing there
for the (National) Censuses of 1841 and 1851.
Around 1856, Thomas and his 3
surviving sons - William, Thomas and Charles - emigrated to ILLINOIS.
So far, I have not been able to trace any details of their departure, the place of arrival in the USA
or the reason for leaving England but as they were all Agricultural Labourers it seems probable
that they went in search of better prospects.
