I have a note to the effect that a Charles Astle was born the son of an Edward Astle [along with seven siblings,] most probably in Wilne, Derbyshire. No dates available - BUT Edward ASTLE [the father] was born in 1795 or thereabouts, and was buried in 1855. Edward's wife was called Ann.
Charles was their second child.
This is probably of no use in your research, but Wilne was in the Shardlow catchment area, just across the river Derwent, and Shardlow was at that time the largest inland port, centre of the canal system.
