Deathbefore 1901Henry Blake

Primary events

  • Birth Reg: Henry's birth was registered in the quarter ended in December 1847 in the Great Yarmouth registration district. But note that in 1851 census the elder Henry was listed as unmarried, and there is NO indication that the younger Henry is his son. He may well have been the son of another of Robert's married sons, or the son of an unmarried daughter. The St Nicholas registers for this period do not seem to exist.1,2
  • Marr Reg: The marriage of Henry and Annie (Maria) Bowler was registered in the quarter ended September 1875 in the Bethnal Green, Tower Hamlets registration district.3
  • Death: Henry died before 1901 in Unknown, as Annie was a widow in 1901. Possibly Blake, Henry aged 48 in Yarmouth 4b/14.

Secondary circumstances

  • Note: A Henry BLAKE married a Sarah before 1871. I have found what I think is our Henry married to an Annie in the same census so we are talking of 2 different Henry BALKE's both born in Yatmouth around the same time.
    Have yet to find the Henry/Sarah marriage. The children were born in many places
