In March, 1848 the family sailed to Australia where both Charles and his father worked at their trade. When Charles became of age he traveled back to his native country where he met and married Mary Ann Delahny, an English lady who was of Irish descent and of a Protestant family. Her father was a hatter and was engaged in business in London; both her parents were natives of England.
Mary Ann Ayers became the mother of nine children, seven of whom died as children. By the time the Ayers family came to Redwood City, in the early 1850s, there were three children, Elizabeth (Lizzie) and Charles Jr. and James Bicknell Ayers.
Charles Ayers built and owned the “Tremont House” on Main Street in Redwood City. The family lived in the hotel as well as renting rooms to the many lumbermen who frequented the city.
Quite a number of men rented rooms for months at a time and were living in the hotel as a home.
Mary Ann Ayers died in 1879 and was buried in Union Cemetery. On July 20, 1889 Charles Ayers married a Miss Laughtry and this couple
had one son.
Charles Ayers died on October 16th, 1891 and was buried in the Ayers plot in Union Cemetery.
The record shows that Charles and a man named J. G. Prichard purchased the real estate for the Tremont House 39 years before his death. The only children remaining were Charles Jr., Lizzie Brittan and James Bicknell.
