Gregory, Charles (1807–1866)

Charles Gregory travelled with his convict mother and siblings to Sydney aboard the Broxbornebury in 1814. His father came free the following year. Following his mother's death in 1819 and his father's return to England, Charles and his two brothers were placed in the Male Orphan School. Charles was apprenticed as a tailor. He left the orphanage in August 1825.

By 1828 he was living with his older brother Edward and younger brother George in Castlereagh St, Sydney. Bridget Byrne, who later married Charles, was also living in the house as a servant. Two tailors, one of them an apprentice were the house's other occupants.
