He was son of James D'Albiac, a Huguenot refugee, and younger brother of James Dalbiac (born 1720).

In 1763 James and Charles Dalbiac occupied 20 Spital Square, in eastern London, as manufacturers of silk and velvet. Around 1764 Charles Dalbiac owned Durdans, a house, near Epsom, Surrey. It was rebuilt for him by William Newton, over the years 1764–8.

Dalbiac by 1784 acquired Hungerford Park, from a Mr Waters. He had a new mansion built there, in the Italian style. He then sold it, in 1796, to John Willes.
