According to a descendent, Homer Boyle, this Charles is descended from Charles Boyle, son of Sir Richard Boyle (B 1544 in Canterbury, England). The birth dates just don't work. According to this account, Sir Richard married an Englishwoman and got involved in real estate in Munster, Ireland. In 1603, he was knighted and became the Viscount Dungarven and became the first Earl of Cork. In 1631, He was made High Lord Treasurer. He had 14 children, 7 male, 7 female. His 3rd son, Roger, supported Cromwell and in about 1655 went to Ireland to aid in securing it for Charles II. Richard's 4th son, Charles, was accused of being a member of the Jacobite Society and was imprisoned in London Tower in 1721 (see how these dates don't work?), but was acquitted. The 7th son, Robert, was considered to be a learned man and lectured extensively. He was supposedly born in 1628 (that makes his dad 84 yrs old!) at Lismore Castle in Waterford, Ireland.

According to another descendent, Helen Jennette Boyles, Charles came over during the revolutionary times and fought in the Revolutionary War.

According to the Genealogical Abstracts of Rev. War Pension Files, 1990, This Charles Boyle, Sr. lived in Claverack, NY, when his son, Charles S. enlisted. Charles Sr moved back to NY state after the war.[Brøderbund Family Archive #312, Ed. 1, Census Index: U.S. Selected Counties, 1800, Date of Import: Feb 15, 2001, Internal Ref. #1.312.1.331.112]

Children of Charles Boyle are:
  i.   Job Boyle, born Bet. 1757 - 1762; died December 12, 1777 in Revolutionary War.
  Notes for Job Boyle:
Died in battle. Was the drummer for the Livingston Regiment, Hansen Company.

  ii.   Charles S. Boyle, born 1759 in Pennsylvania; died 1861 in East Spring Cemetery, Hickernell, Springboro, PA.
  Notes for Charles S. Boyle:
1850 Census: Charles living with his only known child Jesse in Crawford Co., PA.

A paper written in 1935 by a descendent (Homer Boyle)suggests that Charles originally came to America in 1776 as an English soldier with a young son, stationed in NY, that becames sympathetic to the American cause. This paper also states that his wife was supposedly French. Though this sounds perfectly plausible, could this story be about Charles' father, Charles? This would be more plausible due to the brother of this Charles, Job, being killed in the war in 1777 as a fife player.

Charles enlisted in the American Army in 1776 supposedly around Claverack/Hudson, NY. Support for this is only found from Charles' papers when he was 90 years old.

His Rev. War pension papers states his father's name was also Charles, mother unknown.

He lived in the Stroudsburg area at least between 1787 and 1790. He is found on the tax rolls of Lower Smithfield Township. He was involved with Sullivans Expedition against the Indians. He was also connected to the Fort at Stroudsburg after the War.

According to Genealogical Abastracts of Rev. War Pension Files, 1990, Charles first wife died before 1800 and his second wife died before 1830.[Brøderbund Family Archive #312, Ed. 1, Census Index: U.S. Selected Counties, 1800, Date of Import: Feb 15, 2001, Internal Ref. #1.312.1.332.4]
