'Charles J. Grahame' was raised before 1900, in order to be a parent of 'Liberty'.

Roses (1978) p. 75

Liberty
The best red Hybrid Tea to date, by quite a long way, arrived in 1900. It was raised by Alexander Dickson from 'Mrs W. J. Grant' x 'Charles J. Grahame'. The pollen parent, 'Charles J. Grahame' (for these parentages should always be expressed 'Seed Parent' X 'Pollen Parent') was a vigorous red rose, which Dickson's apparently kept for breeding for some time, because it was not introduced until 1905.

Fascinating stuff. I've also added Brent Dickerson's 1898 reference which has allowed us to put the date back from 1905 to <1898.

Two of the most glorious new sorts are the two scarlets Hugh Dickson (Hybrid Perpetual) and Charles J. Grahame (Hybrid Tea). The former is far and away the best new Hybrid Perpetual of this colour of recent introduction, while Charles J. Grahame's orange-scarlet is superb. Here [Gayton, Cheltenham] both are grand growers, very free and have not mildewed.

Charles J. Grahame.--This is a Rose of wonderful colouring, and if it had a few more petals would be an acquisition. Unfortunately, it seems to be more of the Hybrid Perpetual habit than Hybrid Tea. It is fairly vigorous, but requires to be grown strongly to produce good-sized and full blooms.
