I cannot trace our Stuart family connection any further back than Charles Henry Stuart (Stuart-5466). I know from his gravestone that he was born in 1808, in Highgate, Middlesex, London and died on 18 June 1893, in Georgia. He married Margaret Merritt, but I don't have any documentation of the marriage. I have nothing definitive that tells me about his life prior to his arrival in the US. Family oral tradition says that he is the younger son in the family and stowed away on a ship coming to America, because there wasn't anything for him in England. His ship may have landed in Baltimore, since family tradition says he got a job working as a school teacher in Baltimore. If he truly was a stow-away, then his name would not appear on any ship manifest. His wife Margaret was from NC, but I have no idea when/where/how they met or when they eventually moved to Early County, Georgia. A distant cousin has some information (but no documentation) that Charles Henry was baptized/christened in St. Pancras Parish, Middlesex County, London, but I can't find any records to support this. She also tells me that he had a brother named John (maybe John Forbes Stuart) and a sister named Mary, and that the parents were John and Jane (?) Stuart. Again, there is no documentation to back any of this up, not that I can find. I have found nothing to verify the marriage of Charles Henry Stuart to Margaret Merritt (b. 1830, NC) in 1854. Charles Henry and Margaret had three children, but I can't find anything other than census data to confirm that info. My family tree does contain info on their children, with some subsequent documentation. I am hitting a wall now, and don't know where to go to trace further back and find documentation on parents/birth/christening/marriage, etc, as the information relates to Charles Henry Stuart (1808-1893). Any help is much appreciated.
