On the 1881 Census Sidney is listed as a Nurse Child aged one living with Joshua Hawkins and family!
On the 1881 Census the apparent father of Sidney is aged 19 living with his parents Charles and Mary Blank. Henry Stockman BLANK came to Australia, NSW in 1883 as a single man.
Sidney George Blank is first seen in NSW when he married in 1914 with both his parents listed on the certificate. I cannot find out how/when Sidney George Blank-Petherbridge came to Australia. Would like to hopefully find Sidney on the 1891 Census as an 11 year old! if possible OR was he brought to Australia before the census. Sad story no parents or grandparents seemed to have wanted him. Don't know if there is an connection the Hawkins family, was he taken in or adopted by them? Thanks for any help or advice kind regards Dianna
