Charles William PERCY married into the JOHNSON family (recent post A Missing Firstborn). It would be no surprise to discover his descent from one of the most powerful families in northern England. The FamilySearch Shared Tree takes his pedigree back five generations but through variant spellings such as PIERCY and PEIRSEY. (To confuse matters further, in 1797 Michael Peirsey married “Franky Frances Piercy”.)

Charles and his wife Alice Ann died a few miles from Filey but both are remembered in St Oswald’s churchyard.

They seem to have led quiet lives.
