From Thomas Jefferson Encyclopedia
Charles Lewis Bankhead (1788–1833) was the son of Dr. John Bankhead of Caroline County and husband to Ann Cary Randolph, Thomas Jefferson’s eldest granddaughter. Ann and Charles married on 19 September 1808 at Monticello and resided at an 800-acre estate, Carlton, just west of there for most of their marriage. The Bankheads had four children who reached adulthood. Bankhead read law under Jefferson for several years but became an alcoholic and turned unsuccessfully to farming.
