Charles Mallory was born in Waterford, Connecticut, on Feb. 24, 1796 and was apprenticed to his brother-in-law, Nathan Beebe, in New London, Connecticut, where he learned sail making. In 1816 he set out for Boston, Massachusetts, but stopped in Mystic instead where he soon set up his own sail loft. Early investment of surplus capital in shares in vessels enabled him to retire from sail making in 1836 to devote all of his time and energy to the operation and management of his fishing, whaling, and shipping interests. On occasion he accepted part ownership in vessels in payment for making or repairing sails. About 1850 he leased the shipyard of Joseph S. Williams in Mystic where he and his sons built a large number of both sailing and steam vessels. Upon incorporation of the Mystic River National Bank in 1851, he was chosen its firs president. In 1864 he organized the First National Bank of Mystic Bridge, purchased its entire capital stock of $100,000 and became president of the bank. Four of his sons served as directors. When one of his sons organized a shipping and commission house in New York, New York, under the name of G. H. Mallory & Co., he became senior partner. On Feb. 22, 1818, he was married to Eliza Rogers of New London who preceded him in death by about a year. Charles Mallory died at his home in Mystic on August 27, 1882 and was buried in the Elm Grove Cemetery.
