Robert Gosling married Maria Mann 1 April 1822 at Christ Church, Swindon, Wiltsgire.

Thomas Blackman married Sarah Munn 2 August 1831 at St John the Baptist, Sutton at Hone, Kent.

I can find GRO Refs for only two of the children
William Sep 1839 Dartford 5 92 mmn Munn
Clarissa Jun 1858 Dartford 2a 253 mmn Munn

Baptisms for all the children are on Freereg, with the exception of George who appears with the family in the 1841 Census aged 10
These may be a different Thomas.
