Willoughby, son of John
Willoughby and Sarah (also nee Willoughby) was born on the Townland of Killavaney
near the village of Tinahely,
in the parish of Kilcommon,
Co. Wicklow, Ireland, ca 1821. The family was Protestant and there is a family
story stating that they were descendents of a Lord Willoughby. Charles was a
brother of Thomas Willoughby,
lattery of Grey County, Ontario.
to Mormon IGI sources, Charles was married to Sarah
Langril (or Langrill, or Langrell), daughter of William
Langrill on the 30th of January, 1849. The IGI (Batch
No.: M701999). The marriage likely took place at the Church of Ireland
in the parish of Kilcommon, at Tinahely, Co. Wexford. Sarah Langrill was the
daughter of William Langrill (Langrell) and Unknown, and the wedding record
indicates that her residence was at the townland of Coolah, in the parish of
of Aughrim, Co. Wicklow, Ireland. (Sarah
Willoughby, their daughter, who married John
Barber was a cousin of the doctors John and Walter
F. Langrill, sometime Chief Medical Officers for the city of Hamilton,
Ontario (e.g. in 1905).
It is possible
that the family was part of the dislocation and resettlement of tenants of the
Fitzwiliam Estate in Co. Ireland, which took place between 1848 and 1856. Brother Thomas is living with Charles
and Sarah, in 1851 as recorded in the Census. They were residing at Concession
6, W Lot 6 Eramosa Twp., Wellington Co., Ontario, Canada.
death in August of 1857, Charles married Margaret Moore, who
was born in Upper Town, Donegal, Co. Donegal, Ireland. Their marriage by the
Rev. Robert Torrance was solemnized in Guelph. (The marriage appears in the
Wellington District Registers 1852-1857 under Marriages by Rev'd Robert
Torrance, Guelph - #317. Charles Willoughby to Margaret Moore,
both of Eramosa, 2nd Dec. 1857, by license. Rev. Torrance. Witnesses: William
Maud and Ann Maud.) Margaret
and Charles subsequently had a son, John James Willoughby (born June 15, 1861), who moved to Sisted
Township, Muskoka, Ontario.
Note: There is a problem of dates which leads to confusion and questions. If Margaret and Charles were married in 1857, when did first wife Sarah die? A daughter, Elizabeth, was baptized in 1858 (with indication in the record that her mother was Sarah). A son, John died in infancy in 1860 - and John James was born in June of 1861. (no record found yet of his mother).
shows that the Charles Willoughby family (of
(Concession 6, Lot
6, Eramosa Township, Wellington County, Ontario) were by marriage relatives
of the Maude family and the Dunbar family. The Maude and Dunbar farms were
very near to the above Concession and
Lots. William Maude was the nearest neighbour and the Robert
Dunbar family lived nearby.
Willoughby died 29 January 1879 (age 58) of 'cardiac dropsy' (male, farmer),
at York Co., Ontario (Dr. Robt Pryor, Toronto; Registrar: Robty Roddy). He had
been incarcerated as criminally insane and was likely at the Provincial Lunatic
Asylum at the locale that was later to become the Queens Street Mental Health
Centre, in Toronto (999 Queen Street West).
children of Charles and
Sarah Willoughby were all born at the farm on Concession 6, near Rockwood.
William Willoughby, born around 1849 or 1850, likely in Ontario, married Harriet
(Unknown). Their children were Ormiston (Ormie) Willoughby, born around 1874;
Pearl Willoughby, born around 1876, Eramosa Township; Mabel S. Willoughby,
born around 1878, Eramosa Township; Alcima Willoughby, born around 1881, Eramosa
Township; and Florella Willoughby, born about 1883.

Edgefield, Norfolk, England - died 26 October, 1928; buried 29 October, 1928,

many Willoughbys living in relative proximity in Ireland, probably relatively
closely related families living in Co. Wexford and in Co. Wicklow. There is
a William Langrill in Co. Wexford living on the Townland of Annagh Upper (just
west of Holyfort) and a John Willoughby living just east of Holyfort at Ballingarry
Upper. I previously thought this was the locale and roots of 'my' Charles Willoughby
and Sarah Langrill, but new research shows that they were from Co. Wicklow,
as per their marriage record in 1849 indicating that Sarah was from Coolagh,
near Aughrim, and Charles as being from Kilvaney, both in the Counto of Wicklow.
