Charles was born in England, probably near Bath, Somerset.

Charles died in 1941 (sic) shortly after arriving in NZ and was buried in Wellington. Mary was born around 1811. There is some confusion as to the year in which Mary died. The most probable would be as recorded in the N.Z. Journal 1848. Under "Deaths in the Colony Since the Foundation of the Colony" the following is stated," 1841 wife of Charles COTTLE aged 30 decline".

After Mary’s death the two boys were cared for by the GILL family, John and Amelia GILL who had arrived in Wellington on the barque Gertrude on the 3rd November 1841.
