Hi Dave,
I cant find any marriage for Patrick & Mary nee Kerr unless it was in SA or WA, haven't checked.. but have found this for you.

Patrick Blandford & Mary Kerr’s children:
John Charles Blandford b 1888 Carlton Vic – died 1888 Prahan Vic
Jack Pat Francis Blandford b 1890 Prahan Vic – enlisted in WA under surname of Haines and NOK is Mary Haines of Somerset Arms Hotel, Toorak Rd, South Yarra.. I did see some papers showing Mary also had the pub Lismore Arms. Jack was killed in Action 11/11/1916 in Villers Bretonneux France

Cairns Post Sat 7 Sept 1946
The death occurred in Cairns on Sept 1 of Thomas Alexander Haines, husband of Mrs E Haines and father of Mrs C.R. Mitchell Victoria, Mrs J.M. Ledlie, Mrs W.M. Warner both of Cairns and Mr G.K. Haines of Biloela. Buried Martyn St Cemetery Cairns age 82 yrs.
Thomas married Mary Kerr 3 Jan 1894 Prahan Vic (daug of Joseph Kerr & Nancy Reid) and remarried 14 May 1923 Qld to Edith Emily Jarrold
Thomas is mentioned in Pioneers and Settlers Register for Far North Qld
HAINES, Elaine Mary Doreen b 2 Nov 1908 Melb Vic parents Thomas Alexander and Mary Kerr, married William Munro Warner 18 April 1932 St John’s Cairns C of E, children: Wendy Ann b 5 Jan 1934 Cairns, William James Munro b 28 Aug 1938 Cairns, Gillian Symes b 26 Aug 1942 Brisbane, residence Herberton – occupation secretary/housewife.

Hello Val,

Thank you very much for taking the time to find all that.

My connection is the LEDLIE & McLUCKIE marriage and then the John Malcolm LEDLIE to Olive HAINES one.

Thomas married Mary Kerr 3 Jan 1894 Prahan Vic
.. married as Blandford or using her maiden name Kerr?

Can a death for Patrick be found?

We don't have a definite arrival for Joseph Kerr. Do we know if he married in Victoria?

Can the birth in Victoria for Mary Kerr be confirmed?

Regards,

Dave

The fiche of the shiping record for 'Almora' only lists occupation as Ag lab and that the family was from Scotland.
