Charles Henry Dove was the son of Henry Draper and Susan Dove (née Lawrence) of Langham Hall. Henry Draper Dove (d. 1891), Susan Dove (d. 1895) and Charles Henry Dove (d.1900) are buried in St Mary's Churchyard, Langham. Charles Henry Dove's widow, Ethel, remarried and emigrated with their son Henry Julian and her second husband to Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, whence Henry Julian enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force. Henry Julian Dove died while his battalion was consolidating positions in the Mount Sorrel-Observatory Ridge sector of the Ypres Salient following a ferocious enemy attack which had initially overcome the Canadian defences. He is commemorated on a plaque in St Mary's Church, Langham, as is his uncle, Frank Dove, Royal Army Medical Corps (b. 1867, d.1902)."
