  1. HANNAH BLANCH nee MILGATE (19446)

         I have no record of when Hannah was born though it was in Australia. Her parents emigrated  on the ship "Amelia Thompson" in 1838 and they had a
         daughter Caroline and a son, George who was born on the voyage here. So it is more than likely she was born in 1839.
         Hannah's parents were Edward Nilgett Milgate b. 3/5/1814 and Mary Smith b. 23/6/1816. They were married at Beckley Sussex 7/6/1834.
    
  2. LOCATION OF THONE CREEK (RIVER)

        The Thone starts on Comboyne and runs through Byabarra to it merges with the Hastings River 20 kms west of Wauchope.
    
        Hope these details are of some help to you and may I congratulate you on your fantastic site. It has been by far the best and easist whilst I have
        researching the Blanch family.
    
        Regards Julie
