Charles Perowne Christie was born in Ongar, Essex 16th August 1893. Charles' father was a stockbroker agent, Charles H F Christie originating in Chigwell Charles was in the navy by the 1911 census (incorrectly registered as Charles J Christie)  as a midshipman aged 17. Charles married in 1923 and died in the Naval Hospital at Bighi in Malta [Link]. A will records that Charles left his substantial estate of over £4,000 to his wife, Caroline Stella Dyson  (Born Greenwich  27 July 1895). Caroline appears to have returned to Greenwich and appears in the electoral roles for that locality into 1939 before her own death on 16th September 1982.

I am unable to verify the information although it appears that Caroline graduated from Girton College, Cambridge University  in 1916 with a BA [Link].
