Please can someone help me.
My husband's ggg.grandfather Johanne Heinrich BLANKEN arrived in the UK - 2 Sept 1836 on the ship Columbine and lived in the East End of London. In 1843 John Henry BLANKEN married Sarah JENNER, his father named as Henry BLANKEN, Occupation Farmer. On one of the UK census his place of birth was Hannover. I think John Henry may have been related to Hermann BLANKEN, one time Beadle of Kirchtimke as John and Sarah named one of their children Charles Hermann BLANKING.
If anyone knows anything about any of the above persons, I would love to hear from you.
