Commemorative Biographical Record of the County of Kent, Ontario
Frances W. Charteris

FRANCIS W. CHARTERIS continues to cultivate the old homestead farm on Lot 6, Concession I, River Road, the place being known as “Beechwood Villa”.  He was born January 14th, 1860, at Chatham, and on April 9th, 1890, in Thamesville, married Janet Ferguson MacFarlane.  One daughter, Florence Katie, has been born to this union.  Mrs. Charteris was born at Detroit, Michigan, a daughter of Daniel and Catherine (Ferguson) MacFarlane, natives of Glasgow, Scotland, who were married in the County of Kent.

Mr. Charteris has been a member of the board of township trustees since 1902, and is one of the substantial and representative men of his section.  Like his father he is a strong Reformer in political opinion.  The family has always been devoted to the faith of the Presbyterian Church.  Fraternally Mr. Charteris is a member of the Sons of Scotland.  His grandfather was a Mason of high degree.

There are few more refined and cultivated homes in this section of the County of Kent than that of Mr. Charteris.  A well selected library indicates the studious habits of both himself and Mrs. Charteris, and musical instruments and fine paintings, including valuable family portraits, indicate a cultivated taste and intellectual acquirements.
