|William's will was proved Apr 1673. William owned 20
acres in Marblehead in 1637/8. On 6 May 1646 William signed a petition
to control foriegn fisherman. He was a freeholder when Marblehead became
a town on 2 May 1649. His family was one of the original 44 families in
Marblehead, Massachusetts. (History of Salem, Massachusetts by Sidney Perley,
Vol. II 1638-1670, pgs. 2, 179, 197, 198, # R974.4 P45H, Milwaukee's Central
A "Willm. Cherrall, baker, act. 26, and Ursula Cherrall, aet. 40, were probably copied erroneously, for William Charles and his wife, mother or sister, who arrived in Salem and were at Marblehead in 1648..."
On 6 Sep 1642 in Boston court, Mrs. Lydia Banks recovered a judgement of 100 pounds, and probably levied an execution upon the land called "The Plain Farm". On 24 Sep 1645, she conveyed it to Moses Maverick, David Corwithen, Arthur Sandin, William Charles, John Peach, the elder, and "others the inhabitants of Marblehead, all that farm called ye Playnes farme," etc. (Essex Registry of Deeds, book 1, leaf 29, "The History of Salem Massachusetts" by Sidney Perley, Vol. II, 1638-1670, Salem, Mass. 1926). It was subsequently divided into fourteen or more parts.
Charles as an English name is rare, introduced during Norman times, but not popular because of its French origin. the place in England that used it was Devonshire as a place name meaning "rock court".
