BLAKE from YEOVIL, Somerset, England - pre 1820
Posted by: Liz Larsen (ID *****0281) Date: January 11, 2007 at 13:05:21
  of 4509

Mary Blake (my 3x ggrandmother) was born in Yeovil Somerset. Christened 2 August 1815 Yeovil.
The daughter of Charles Blake and Ann Brook
who were arried 7 Nov 1814 St John the Baptist Church, Yeovil.
Mary married Willian Caines 9 Nov 1834 St John the Baptist Church, Yeovil and had 3 sons, Alfred, Hubert & Robert.
This family emigrated to New Zealand in 1841 aboard the ship 'Lord William Bentinck'
(have plenty of further info on this)
Residence prior to emigration: Park Street, Yeovil

Other probable siblings to Mary:
Maria - Christened 21 Sept 1817 Yeovil (who may have married Robert Connick in 1845)
John Charles - born 1819 Yeovil
Elizabeth - Christened 9 September 1819 Yeovil
Elias? - (could be a repeat of Elizabeth)

Looking for family connections/info of the Blake Family of Yeovil before Mary left England.
