Charles Sampson was born at Bald Hills, South Australia on 27 Nov 1867. He was the son of John Sampson (1820-1890) and Elizabeth Anne nee Eyres (1833-1903). Charles Sampson was a gardener.
Charles, aged 48 years, married Julia May Illman, aged 44 years, (1871-1952) on 2 March 1915 at the residence of Mrs Harry Illman at Aldinga. She was the daughter of Harry Illman (1841-1911) and Mary (nee Riseborough) (1845-1925). It was Charles’ first marriage and Julia May’s second marriage, as she had married James Henry Farmer (1866-1905) on 3 May 1897 at St. Ann’s Anglican Church, Aldinga. There were no children from either marriage.
Charles purchased 1 acre (part of section 407) with a 100-foot frontage onto the Government Road (now Old Coach Road) on 13 April 1921. The property at 7 Old Coach Road passed to his widow, Julia May, on his death in 1944 and, after she died in 1952, it was sold to Ralph Edwin Eats, farmer of Sellicks Hill.
Julia May’s sister, Rhoda Caroline Illman, had purchased 9 Old Coach Road (the property next door) in April 1908 and lived there for nearly 50 years until her death, aged 87 years, in 1956.
Charles Sampson died on 29 Jan 1944 and his widow, Julia May, died on 18 Aug 1952. They are both buried in the Aldinga Uniting Church Cemetery.
