Charles Donne was at various times a Flaxmaker, and at others a grocer. Had at least 2 daughters and three sons that included a William Longman Donne (see entry on UK Emigrant Forum) William Longman DONNE with Children emigrated to South Africa about 1879-1880. Another line of descendants of Charles (junior), many retaining the second given name of Stephens, remained in Somerset, at least until the 1901 census.
