Ive just found again your meesage from 30 Jan. I had put it aside whilst awiating a reply to my earlier message to you.
Ive done some more research and have some info; Blanche Meale died in 1923 - death registered as Puckeridge - not Hoffman. This fits with not finding a marriage to Hoffman but leaves us with a puzzle given that Hoffman marriage detail you have.
Blanches grandfather was Louis Meale - not Lewis Meale. They are different people. Lewis was Blanches uncle. Louis died 18 Aug 1906. Lewis died 1929.See Roots Worldconnect for the details; http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/
There is a marriage of Ernest Alfred Puckeridge in NSW 1940 to Joyce Lamond Clarke.This looks a good fit.
Unfortunately I cant find anything more on the Hoffman side of things.
Have you had any luck since January ? Hope to hear from you.
