Notes
General:
John's birth is estimated to be about 1796. All records including death and censuses, indicate birth between 1792-1802. His occupation was shoemaker.

All the children of John and Ruth were christened under the surname of Black, which is why they had not been found. Jan Dabson supplied me with christening details from registers she has in her possession. I have since confirmed all the christening details supplied by Jan.

A Mary Fisher was in attendance at the death of John Blackwell.

John and Ruth's three adult children who died after compulsory registration was introduced, died of Tuberculosis. Tuberculosis is a bacterial infection of the lungs and sometimes other parts of the body, and is spread by droplets in the coughs or sneezes of a person with the disease. Tuberculosis was known as 'consumption' in the 19th century and was a major cause of death in Britain at that time. The disease is still common where there is overcrowding, malnourishment and poor health care.

Tuberculosis, also known as "consumption," "phthisis," or the "white plague," was the cause of more deaths in industrialized countries than any other disease during the 19th and early 20th centuries. By the late 19th century, 70 to 90% of the urban populations of Europe and North America were infected with the TB bacillus, and about 80% of those individuals who developed active tuberculosis died of it.

For most of the 19th century, tuberculosis was thought to be a hereditary, constitutional disease rather than a contagious one. By the end of the 19th century, when infection rates in some cities were thought by public health officials to be nearly 100%, tuberculosis was also considered to be a sign of poverty or an inevitable outcome of the process of industrial civilization. About 40% of working-class deaths in cities were from tuberculosis.

Robert Koch's identification of the tuberculosis bacillus in 1882 helped to convince members of the medical and public-health communities that the disease was contagious. Preventing the spread of tuberculosis became the motivation for some of the first large-scale public health campaigns.

Mortality rates began declining in the late 19th century throughout Europe and the United States. Whether sanitary measures, sanatoria, improved nutrition, or larger epidemiological factors unrelated to human intervention were the cause of this decline remains undecided. http://ocp.hul.harvard.edu/contagion/tuberculosis.html

In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Higham Ferrers like this:

HIGHAM-FERRERS, a small town, a parish, a subdistrict, and a hundred in Northamptonshire. The town stands on a rocky height, near the river Nene and the Northampton and Peterborough railway, 3 miles from the boundary with Beds, and 15 ENE of Northampton. It was known, at Domesday, as Higham; and it took its after name from the Earls Ferrers, who were its lords. Its site has yielded relics which show it to have been probably occupied by the Romans; and is within 3 miles of the Roman station of Chester.

Table Talk (Melbourne, Vic. : 1885 - 1939) Thursday 13 April 1922 Page 13
http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/147419163
The engagement is announced of Miss Mia McIntosh Fraser Edward, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. Edward, ''Edinburgh," Champion-street, Brighton Beach (late Ascot Vale), to Mr Robert Bernard Blackwell, second son of Mr. and Mrs. W. Blackwell, of Nar-Nar-Goon, Gippsland.

This engagement seems to have been ended as Bob did not marry Mia Edward and a couple of years later she married someone else.

Robert lived for many years in Clayton and Malvern. Towards the end of his life he moved to Cairns FNQ where he and Rita lived in a Granny flat at the home of Rita's daughter Eileen. Bob was able to recount memories of his time living in England and was able to pass on many family stories and information in a tape recorded letter to his nephew Geoff Blackwell in the late 1980's shortly before his death. These memories have proved an invaluable source of information.
