Hello, My wife's line has a BLEE component, beginning with Charles BLEE, married to Martha HODGERS (HODGES?) in the UK. Their son Charles was born c.1832 in Falmouth, Cornwall. This Charles came to Australia (don't know how/when) and married on 11/12/1853 to Jane BATES (b. c1834, Glasgow, Scotland), at Geelong, Victoria. They had at least 11 children, 5 of whom died in 1870 - must have been a dreadful accident or illness, I'm still to investigate this. Surviving daughter Martha (b. 7/4/1857, Raglan, Victoria) married James Armstrong Scott on 30/7/1874 at Ararat, Victoria.Martha's surviving siblings were Mary (b. 1858, Ararat), Alfred Ernest (b. 1871, Ballarat, Victoria), Charles Henry (b. 1873, Ballarat), William George (b. 1875, Ballarat), Walter Robert (b. 1880, Ballarat). May be others after this but I have no details. Interested in any links. Rob Wills (Stradbroke Island, Queensland, Australia) PS I use Australian dating convention: day/month/year.
