Descendants of James BLACKWOOD and Jane RINGWOOD of Norfolk, England
James BLACKWOOD (1800-1854) of Hethel, Norfolk, England married Jane RINGWOOD (1796-?) on 3rd April 1820.
James BLACKWOOD's parents are thought to be William BLACKWOOD (b. 1777), son of Robert and Mary, who married Frances SHEARING (1781-1806).
NOTE: the Blackwood genealogy from Ballarat website here, shows a different parentage of Sussana BLACKWOOD (1824-1908) who married Robert LANE (1822-1904):
James BLACKWOOD (1802-?), son of Sir Henry BLACKWOOD and Harriet GORE
is this wishful thinking? I suspect so.
Their 2nd daughter, my great, great grandmother, Susannah married Robert LANE and emigrated to Australia in 1855 (see Lane family ).
Their son, James, was born in Wreningham, Norfolk in 1830 and emigrated to Australia with his wife Hannah MICKLEBOROUGH (whom he had married in Hempnall, NFK in 1852) and 2 eldest sons, James Nehemiah and John Henry, emigrating to Portland, Vic in 1857 on the ship "British Empire" and settled at Hotspur.
Their 2nd son Isaac BLACKWOOD b. 1836 Hethel, Norfolk, England and emigrated to Portland, Vic on the ship "British Empire" in 1857.
see history of Hotspur here.
