Charles Tye

Charles Tye

Paternal Grandfather of Eleanor Thornton Bain

Charles Tye was born  Sept 1841 in Clerkenwell, London, England. He was the first child of William Tye and Ann Cummings. He had five siblings, John, Mary, Sarah Elizabeth, Thomas, and William. When he was 18, he married Julia Higgs,daughter of William Higgs and Ann Roe, on 23 Oct 1859 in St Mark, Myddelton Square in London

Charles was a brick-maker and with his wife and young children came to Canada in 1871. Settling in Toronto.

I have yet to find an official death record for Charles but found a newspaper reference to a brickmaker named Charles Tye in Toronto who was killed  by a train on Oct 10th 1885 . Julia remarried in '87 and was listed as a widow so I am pretty sure it is the same Charles.
