Charlotte Foden, from whom we are descended, was the daughter of Charles and Mary BALDOCK.

She married James SQUIRES and together they had four children and lived most of their life at Rock House next to Rock Mills in Milverton.


Charlote Foden, was the middle child of Charles and Mary and appears to have been baptised twice:
             8 Aug        St. Botolph's, Sibson.
            10 Oct        Kingsbury, Warwickshire


She married James SQUIRES in Milverton, on 26 July 1838.


James and Charlotte Foden had four children:

1841    Edwin Foden
1846    Stephen George
1857    Katherine
1863    James Herbert

Sadly, their only daughter Katherine, surviving only a few weeks.

We think that these two photgraphs could be of
Charlotte and James c 1864/65


When James died, his Will recorded Effects of almost £700, to his widow Charlotte, who survived for a further 12 years.

In turn, when Charlotte Foden died on 31 December 1898, her Will left all personal and real estate, which was valued at £445, to her two sons, Edwin (Bank Agent) & Stephen (retired Bank Manager), and refers to Public Stock Funds, Government Securities, and stocks of the Bank of England, which further indicated the wealth as well as the standing of the family within the community.
