Charles Mayne is listed at Anmount Lodge (later Box Cottage) in the 1851, 1861 and 1881 Censuses, but in 1871 the occupant was Dr Boisragon. In 1851 he was listed as "servant out of business", but in the 1853 directory he was listed among the "gentry". He must have started the coal business after that.

He was the son of Oliver and Rosamund Mayne, grandson of John Mayne (will proved 1803) and Richard Seaton (will proved 1824), and brother of Richard Mayne (d.1829). His wife was born in Brighton. They don't appear to have had any children.
