Some things are not falling into place. The name has many variations.

I can't find Alfred & Annie in 1881 nor can I find their children Horace Wm, Alfred S, George G, and Florence. This is the marriage:

Marriages Mar 1870
Blenharn Alfred Elstone Islington 1b 402
Peart Annie Islington 1b 402


Has Alfred E got a brother named John or James?


These fit but when did they arrive in Australia?

Births Mar 1873
Blenkarn Horace William Camberwell 1d 732

Births Sep 1874
Blenkarn Alfred Stanley Marylebone 1a 516

Births Jun 1877
BLENKARN George Grosvenor Hampstead 1a 637


I can't find Florence born 1879/1880.

Regards,

Dave

I cannot find any of them in 1881, not Alfred & Annie nor any of their children Horace, Alfred, George or Florence all born before 1881.

Possible 1889 shipping record but only two possible fits for children. One of the infants would be Frederick born 1888 and the 8 yo could be Margaret. So when did Horace, Alfred, George and Florence arrive? Or are the ages all mixed up? Or are the 6, 5 & 3 yo and the other infant children of Mr J & spouse? Neither the 45 or 34 for Mrs fits with age at death for Annie.

Parents' deaths:

Hi Dave
I think you may have partially cracked it. Only the O in Harn is different.

1881 census down as Blenker RG11-687-60-45.

EDIT there are three trees on A.... one hasn't got children of Alfred and Annie, the other two finnish at Florence, ie they don't have Margaret or Frederick. TCould this mean this family emigrated some time shortly after 1881, and Margaret and Frederick are children from another family

It's getting closer but still needs more for it to all fall into place.

I could't even find Longbon (Longbone/Longbones) or Johnson in 1881 to match Sarah & Emma.

No, they are both younger children of Alfred E & Annie.

Alfred E's parents are Alfred Bower & Mary Ann PAGE.


Marriage 5893/1904 TOVEY DARCY P - BLENKARN MARGARET - SYDNEY

Surname: TOVEY
Given Names: Margaret
Father: Blenkarn Alfre
Mother: Annie PEERT
Death Place: ELWO = Elwood, Vic.
Age: 88
Year: 1969
Reg Number: 5689
Event: D = death
b. c1881

Surname: BLENKARN
Given Names: Frederick John
Father: Alfred Elsto
Mother: Annie TEERT
Death Place: PARK = several places in Victoria eg Parkville
Age: 73
Year: 1962
Reg Number: 1253
Event: D = death
b. c1889

The shipping record is a real puzzle. Being unassisted the info comes from sources such as newspapers and as a result lacks details such as given names. Possibly the ages are based on the reporters guess and not on any documentation. I'm not sure. I think it's them but there appears to be two families. That's why I wondered if Alfred had a brother with a name starting with J. Another son of Alfred Bower BLENKARN & Mary Ann PAGE.

Now wait and see what IB has and needs. ;)
Hiya x sorry I have only just logged on for today been out for the day.:)

I have not had chance to read all the posts yet but a few things I scan read off them....... is it possible the children are not belonging to Alfred Elstone Blenkarn and Annie Peart....... this is one thing I had thought myself untill I printed out Frederick's Australian Imperial Force Records.... the following information was in the record...

Born Tottenham England
Next of kin - sister Margaret Tovey
Joined 29/04/1915
Date of birth 08/03/1888

Service record 1940
next of kin sister Florence Leitch

And then there is A death notice for another child of theres with these two listed .......


Deaths ;
Blenkarn - On January 24th at private hospital, Malvern, Horace William beloved husband of the late Blanche, loving father of Dudley ( deceased ) loved brother of George, Fred, Alfred ( deseased ), Florence Leitch ( deceased ) and Margaret Tovey, dear uncle of Mark & Edna Tovey.

hope this helps x will have a read through the posts now x thank you all x

On the information I have for Alfred Bower Blenkarne & Mary Ann Page, I have another son William Chalmers Blenkarne b.1853 Kew Surry d.1916 Surry

For some reason I have another William born 1867 not sure why lol x
