Charles Albert Hartley

A small albumen print portrait of Charles Albert Hartley with his banjo.

Charles Albert Hartley was the third son of John Hartley and his wife Emma (née Thorneycroft). John Hartley established glass works in Dumbarton but soon afterwards moved to the Midlands and became a partner in Chance and Sons. Later he became a partner with his brother-in-law, Colonel Thorneycroft, in Thorneycroft’s ironworks and collieries. He became very rich indeed, leasing Tong Castle in Shropshire from the Earl of Bradford for over 40 years.

Photographer unidentified.

From an album compiled by Charles Albert's sister-in-law, Louisa (née Stone), wife of George Thompson Hartley.
