Charles Edgar Wightman was born in Ipswich in 1878, the son of Edgar Wightman and Sarah Ann (Wade) Wightman. [1]He was described as a merchant's clerk on the 1901 and 1911 censuses and died aged 47 in Ipswich.[2]He was unmarried at the time of the census in 1911 and I have not found any likely marriages in Suffolk from 1911 to 1926. However, there is a marriage of a Charles E Wightman in Dec 1911 in Norfolk, which is a possibility I have not followed up so far.
1881 age 4 with parents and five siblings in Ipswich (described as "daur"- possibly two entries were combined in error?).[3]
1891 age 12 with parents and six siblings, scholar in Ipswich.[4]
1901 age 22 with parents and six siblings in Ipswich.[5]
1911 age 32 visiting Thomas Edwin in Felixstowe.[6]
