Charles Wingfield, Jr. (d. 1819) was a magistrate and sheriff in Albemarle County. He lived 14 miles southwest of Monticello at Bellair on the Hardware River. Family tradition states he was an Episcopal minister,[1] and Thomas Jefferson's records show that he paid Wingfield to officiate at several people's funerals, including that of his sister.
