Lt Charles Granville Whitelocke RN

This Carte de Visite by C A Duval and Co should, with any luck, help somebody with their family history.

The sitter is identified on the reverse as:

“Charles Granville Whitelocke, Lt RN, only son of Frank Whitelocke and Mary Anne W (nee Campbell)”.

If anybody can prove their descent from Lt Whitelocke, please contact me at

    Francis and Marianne married in 1839 at St Mary, Bryanston Square, Westminster.
    His father was Richard Hutchins Whitelock, Esq and hers was James Campbell (deceased), Esq. NB one of the witnesses was Thomas William Whitelock
    At the time of the 1841 census, Francis and Marianne were living at Rosebank Cottage, Upton, Cheshire with a 10 month old Anna Whitelock. Francis was 28 years, Marianne 25 years. Both born in county, as was Anna.
    By 1851 Marianne appears to have died.

    Francis Whitelock and wife Jane, both age 38 years, were living in Tredarwan (?)Cottage, Trederwen, Montgomeryshire. His occupation – Lieut. H.E.J.C.S. Indian Navy Retired ????????
    Children listed with them –
    Anna M.F. 10
    Francis H. 5
    Thos. A. (?) 3
    Caroline M. 2

    Soooo if Charles didn’t marry and have children there may be descendants of these children who can claim him. Will check to see if any more by 1861.
    In 1861 Jane was a widow and living in Ninfield, Sussex with children
    William T. 13
    Caroline M. 11
    Charlotte P. 9
    Jane A. 7

    By 1871 Jane was a widow, living in Bridlington, Yorks living off dividends and pension, with daughters Charlotte Perby Whitelock, 19 and Jane Augusta Whitelock, 17. In 1881 living with the same daughters but by now in East Barnet, Herts.

    Thank you very much for this useful information, Sarah. Let’s hope there is enough there for somebody to be able to prove their descent from Charles Whitelocke.

    The information you have given about Charles’s naval career would certainly fit with the photograph which, I think, would have been taken in the early 1870s. Interestingly, the inscription on the reverse of the photograph makes reference to “Lieutenant” rather than “Sub-Lieutenant”. I certainly would not set too much store by this difference as the scribe may well have thought that “Lieutenant” sounded a bit more important. That’s just my theory, though.
