Research Notes

  • Research note 01: John's daughter Harriet Rebecca BLAKE had children christened in Tabernacle Independent in Finsbury in the 20 years after 1810. There was a Joseph BLAKE christened in the same tabernacle, son of Joh and Rebecca, 1st May 1797. IGI 037161.
  • Research note 02: John's story is told on an ancestry tree owned by BHirst1947. It is well worth the read if you have access to it. There are 2 more children than I have, and further research on John is required..
