Hi Liz,
Its great to hear from from you. I have traced most of the family lines and was aware of your family connection. However Philip's wife was Sarah Roakes, I have all there birth records. The last four children have Birth certificates which state that Sarah Blackman was formerly Roakes. I also have info on her line, this to is confirmed.
If you would like to know info further back than Philip
I can help you.

Best Wishes,
Michael

Joseph Blackman was born in 1803 at Battle. Records at the National Archives Joseph served with the 1st Foot Guards from 1826 until 1849. He was Pensioner of Chelsea in 1851 at Battle. He later married Mary Ann Metcalf, daughter of William Metcalf, in 1853 at Battle. Joseph Blackman was Chelsea Pensioner in 1861 at Battle. He died in 1863 at Battle. As yet I cannot trace his parents or connect him to my line.

Hope this is helpful

Hi Steven,
Have checked my records and the only Joseph that appears is in 1678 born in Battle and he died in 1690. His father was Thomas born 1628 or 1634 in Crowhurst. This is where I am stuck. after this there is two lines I could follow.
Regards, Michael

Hi, Thomas Blackman was my Great Grandfather, he had a son Henry T Blackman he was my Grandfather. I have traced most of the various family connections back to Anthony Blackman 1676, but as yet cannot go further as his father was Thomas and I have two possible leads.
Where does your line come into the Blackman line.
Regards,
Michael
