About Robert Blanch

Robert Blanch was born, the youngest of 7 children, in Sussex England.

He died in Rolvenden, Kent on Feb 8, 1831. He had outlived his wife by 40 years. (She died 1792 at Rolvenden--in childbirth. She was 46 years old)

His wife,Elizabeth was born in Sandhurst Kent but her father, Benjamin Brann was also from Salehurst, Sussex. He may have left there to marry his wife, Ann Fitlow who was born in Hawkhurst, Kent

Of his children, this is found in a history of the area:

Four Brann families left for Australia, including George Brann’s own brother, David, and three of his cousins: Lucy Brann and husband John Palmer; Mary Brann and husband John Bull; and Edward Blanch and his family. The Palmers and the Blanches sailed on assisted passages. David Brann and his wife Alice Hunt fitted the ideal emigrant profile: a young, childless couple. They were aged 22 and 19 respectively, when they emigrated on the sailing ship Cornwall, which left Gravesend in May 1839 carrying 387 emigrants, and reached Sydney that September; after which he was headed up country.
