Re(3): Blanchard Family in Louth

Hi Gary,

Sorry for the delay in replying. Yes, Eliza was married twice; as you say, her first marriage, to William Michael Holmes (or Michael William...the order varies!) took place on 2 April 1837 at St James, Louth. Her second marriage, to George Allenby Gresswell, was on 15 September 1852, also at St James.

I'm afraid that the Blanchard's prior to John are, sadly, proving elusive (to put it mildly!).

I just noticed that, in your original post, you requested information regarding Peter Blanchard (born 1849). Do you have the details regarding his trial / execution for the murder of Louise Hodgson? I've collated various news reports on the case from both the national and local press; if you'd like copies, please let me know.

Best wishes
