Census details

Some aspects of Emmeline Blake's life. Emmeline died when she was 30, and was living at the time in St Jude's Parsonage, Southsea. She was the mother of a child also named Emmeline BLAKE, who was buried in 1870 in the family plot. I assumed the child was illegitimate but further searching brought out a marriage between Emmeline and Joseph Sewell BLAKE in Sep qtr 1868.
