Charles Clarke
, a grocer of Reddish, Manchester, married Jane Turton in 1826 (no marriage details yet found). Their eldest child, John Clarke, was born 1827. The 1851 UK Census shows Charles, a shopkeeper aged 53 and his wife Jane aged 49 living in Coronation Street, Reddish, with a son William (aged 21), a daughter Mary Ann (aged 19) and a maidservant. Presumably John, aged 24 at the time of the census, was not living at home with his parents. Twenty years later the 1871 UK Census lists Charles (a grocer and provisions dealer aged 77) and Jane (his wife 69) living together at Coronation Street with neither children nor servants.
