I am reseaching my wife's family tree & have also come across the Meale's.
Blanche Meale was born (17/4/1876) to Alexander William Meale & Mary Beaumont(m:3/6/1876) in Sydney NSW. Blanche Meale married John Puckeridge in 1906, however it appears that she went on to marry Arthur Hoffman 10/3/1911 in Newtown NSW prior to them moving to QLD. I have been unable to locate any certificate to confirm this marriage, Other then what is stated on Horace Hoffman's birth certificate. (John Puckeridge died in 1909).Blanche died 21/7/1923
Alexander William Meale: Born 1854 in Camden NSW & died 1920. His parents were:Lewis Meale who died in 1929, & Sarah Edge born 1837 & died 1907.
I would really like to know more about the Hoffman side of things as on Blanches death certificate it has Arthur Hoffman as a informant, stating no relation!
Blanche had five boy's that I have found so far: Ernest A Puckeridge (1907), John B Puckeridge (1909) Frederick Reginald Hoffman (1912) Arthur Sylvester (1916) Horace Livingston Hoffman (8/3/1918).
I hope this gives you something you can work with.
If you can get anything from all this please let me know.
