Re(2): John Henry Blanchard born 1862 Pocklington East Yorks


John Henry gives his birthplace in the 1881 census as York, and on the 1901 and 1911 censuses as Pocklington. There is a baptism for John Henry Blanchard, Pocklington, 27 Nov 1862, son of John Blanchard and Elizabeth. It would appear that his mother Elizabeth died, and John remarried, to Sarah Jane. This would explain why on the 1881 census the two children of John Blanchard are John H. aged 18, and Fred, aged 2. It would seem that John Blanchard married Sarah Jane prior to 1878, and indeed there is a marriage, in York, Sept qtr of 1875, where there are two possible wives, Sarah Ann Bean, and Sarah Slater (see at FreeBMD:|6db%3Dbmd_1356684424|6sq%3D1|6v%3DMTM1NzkzNjI2MzpiZDYzN2UyZDYzZDZlOWJjMjMxYjJiYTNmOGIzZTdjODJhNGFhMjJj|6surname%3DBlanchard|6end%3D1880|6type%3DMarriages|6eq%3D4|6start%3D1875&action=Find )

Hope this helps,
