Charles’s name is spelt incorrectly here. He was actually Charles Wantling. Two of his sons, Benjamin and George were transported to NSW although George went under his mother’s maiden name of Green. The above date is Charles’s christening date. He was the son of Nathaniel and Mary Wantling nee Price. Charles married Mary Green on 20th december 1796 in Kidderminster. Mary followed Charles out to NSW on the Jupiter in 1823 with their two youngest daughters Elizabeth and Sarah.
