Charles Dyer, the fourth in his line sequentially to bear that name, was born at Cranston, Rhode Island, in November of 1742, a son of Charles and Abigail (Williams) Dyer. His parents were, respectively, a great grandson of Quaker martyr Mary (Barrett) Dyer and her husband William, first attorney general of Rhode island; and a great granddaughter of Roger Williams, the founder of Providence.
Charles married Phebe Pearce in 1764, and the couple lived at Cranston; he died there, in his eighty-first year, in mid-August of 1823.
