My great-great-great-grandfather Charles Bradford Baird was a brother to William Baird who married Charlotte Nowell.

Their parents were James Baird and his wife Lililia, who were both Scottish. James Baird, as a returned soldier (Staff Sergeant) worked at the army hospital at Chatham until he died in 1828.

I have researched this Baird family in the 1990s.

Charles Bradford Baird's son John James Baird migrated to New Zealand in the 1850s, marrying Maraia Lee, daughter of John Lee and Sarah Timu, and establishing a large family in the Southland area.

Hi Will,

We are very......  distantly related by marriage......

William B. Baird married Charlotte Augusta Phillis Nowell in 1844 in Gravesend in Kent. The Nowell name is carried forward as a first name!

His daughter C/Kathleen married William Jarvis and I have tracked that family forward.....

I also tracked William and Charlotte's other children but had not found Harry's details. Was it him that emigrated?

I believe that William had a brother John Baird b.1810 as in one of the later censuses William is with him in Gillingham.

I have no details of William further back, nor any other siblings for him, but I believe I have found Charlotte's parents and grandparents.

Let me know if I can be of further help!

Hi

I've just spotted this one - I am descended from Charlotte's sister Helen (aka Ellen), and I am intrigued by the fact that you say you have tracked Charlotte's parents and grandparents.  I have managed her parents, but am now stumped.  If you have anything any further back, I would love to know.  (Charlotte's daughter Augusta was witness to Helen's marriage in 1862)

 Best wishes
