In the FreeREG baptisms for Heckingham, another baptism of a Thomas is listed on 20 Jul 1781, also with parents Thomas and Martha. Need to look at the original register to check the two dates.

Thomas is mentioned in the will of his father which was signed on the 4th June 1814.

In 1812, Thomas began working as a Ships Steward for th Honourable East India Company and made his first voyage on the 2nd August aboard the 600 Ton 'Alexander' between England and India. He then served on various ships, mainly to China, and even survived a  shipwreck in 1818 when the 'Cabalva' struck a reef (Cargados Shoals) about 250 miles NW of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean.

During the return voyage of the 'Abercrombie Robinson' from China in early 1829, there was an outreak of Cholera on board the ship. Thomas became infected and died at 3am on the 12 February 1829. He was buried within 24 hours, whilst at sea, at 1am on the 13 February 1829.

Thomas BLUNDERFIELD-B0652 was born on 18 Mar 1811 in Loddon, Norfolk. He was christened 1 on 21 Mar 1811 in Holy Trinity, Loddon, Norfolk. He died 2 on 9 Aug 1828 in Bombay, India from Cholera. He was buried 3 on 10 Aug 1828 in Bombay, India.

Like his father, Thomas also took up a sea-going career with the Honourable East India Company. In the journal of the HEIC Ship Winchelsea, his father is listed as Ship’s Steward and Thomas Blunderfield Jnr is listed as Boatswains Servant. He would have been 15 years and 4 months old when this 12 month voyage to India began on the 18 July 1826. It was not unusual for boys of 11 or 12 to be sent to sea. The Marine Society was a charitable institution which trained and arranged placements on ships for young boys. These were generally from poor families and was seen as a way of improving their prospects. Boys were paid 10s per month.

Father and son are again listed together for their next voyage. A longer one to India and China this time, aboard the HEIC Ship Abercrombie Robinson, which left the Thames on the 21 February 1828. His father held his usual position of Ship's Steward, whilst Thomas Jnr was employed as a servant to the ships carpenter.  The ship stayed several weeks in Bombay during the outward leg and unfortunately Thomas Jnr became infected with Cholera and died on the 9th August 1828. His body was taken ashore for burial on the 10th, just a few hours before the ship sailed for China.

Ann married 4 William Barnabas BRISTOW-B0647 on 28 Oct 1854 in Saint Mary, Bromley St Leonard, Tower Hamlets, Middlesex.

Ann was counted in a census on 7 Jun 1841 in Ashton Street, Tower Hamlets, London, Middlesex. She was counted in a census on 30 Mar 1851 in 8, Ashton Street, Tower Hamlets, London, Middlesex.

She was counted in a census on 10 Jun 1880 in Brownstown, Wayne, Michigan, USA.

There is some confusion over the baptism of Ann. There are two records of baptisms to Thomas (a Mariner) and Ann in the Poplar district of London.
The first record shows Ann being baptised on the 29th Apr 1829 (unfortunately no birth date is shown).
The second record shows a baptism on the 31st Oct 1831. This would normally suggest that the first Ann had died but this second baptism record gives a birth date of 5th Feb 1825, also Ann's father Thomas had died at sea on the 12 Feb 1829.. In the 1851 census, Ann gives her age as 24 (31 Mar 1826 to 30 Mar 1827)

See scrapbook for images of the two baptism records.

Marriage Notes:

Note that Ann's brother Charles (B0644) is one of the witnesses.
