Re: NSW Lookup please Gordon - Blake Horspool Sproule Duffy Stevens
Thank you for your reply re Sproule.My ancestors are related to the Sproule family by marriage.My ggggggrandfather was John Blake. His son was James whose son was also James.His daughter was Ethel M Blake who married James Sproule (date unknown).James Sproule was born in 1874.There were two daughters Thelma and Gwendolene.
I obtaine most of this information from a book titled "A History of Kenthurst and Annangrove" by Catherine Charlton published in 1981.The foreword to the book was actuually written by a gentleman by the name of GMM Sproule- in this foreword he talks about his grandparents James and Matilda Blake.
In the book there are a number of references to the Sproule family including - Gwendolene, Herbert, James, Norman and William.If you would like me to send copies of these pages to you please contact me direct at my email address.
