In the December quarter of 1873 (Leyburn registration district 9d 1122), he married Ann Robinson, the daughter of Henry Thomas Robinson and Elizabeth, nee Purchas. Ann had been baptized 4 June 1848 in Wensley. As an interesting aside, in 1871 Ann's father Henry was superintendent registrar for Leyburn, and attorney registrar of the county court. In 1851, in Leyburn, he is listed as an attorney at law, when his daughter Ann is 2 years old.

Ann died shortly after the census, and was buried in Redmire 1 May 1901. Her casket reads "In memory of Ann wife of Charles Jas Burrill of Elm House who died 27 April 1901 aged 52 years."

Charles, and a second wife Ada, are also buried in Redmire: "In memory of Charles Jas Burrill of Elm House, Redmire born 4 September 1846 died 24 November 1910." "In loving memory of Ada Mary second wife of Charles Jas Burrill of Elm House, Redmire, died 10 June 1931 aged 61 years."

Charles and Ann's son is also buried in Redmire: "In loving memory of William Robinson Burrill-Robinson of Elm House only son of Charles and Ann Burrill died 23 December 1962 aged 78 years." They also had a daughter, Elizabeth, born about 1876, seen with them in Coverham in the 1891 census at Cotescue Park.
