Surnames: Bligh, Carlton, Jordan, Dines, wick, Maynard
Searching for family connections to gr gr grandfather, James Bligh born circa 1860/62, and also his spouse Julia Carlton
born circa 1860/62 in England.

Info on their son's death certificate (James Frederick Bligh
my gr grandfather) says James' parents were both born in
England, but it doesn't say where. We are supposed to have
relatives or cousins in Canterbury, but I'm not sure if that's the Bligh or the Carlton side.

James and Julia's children (as far as I know)
Frances, Lizzy, Louisa (?) Maynard (aka Wick) and Jack Bligh (who is supposed to have died in Australia according to family story) and then my gr grandfather James Frederick Bligh b. 1882-Aug-09 Ramsgate, Thanet, Kent.
He married Harriet Jordan Dines b.1885-Mar-01 Ramsgate, Thanet, Kent.

James emigrated to Western Canada on the HMS Rainbow about 1910. His wife Harriet followed about 4 years later (1914)
with their two children: Harriet and James who were also
born in Ramsgate.

Any help on tracing family members in England will be

Thank you,
