Family details from Rootsweb by Neva MacRae Karratha (Pilbara ) Western Australia 1999 and others
Stephen BLUNDELL was born in 1820 at Sandhurst Kent, England and arrived in Tasmania Australia in 1850 on board the William Jardine (3). Stephen was a Miner and unconfirmed records indicate that in 1857 or 1858 he married Jane KELSO in Castlemaine (source VICGOLD). This marriage record does not appear on the Pioneer Index for Victoria nor on the New South Wales Pioneers Index.
Jane KELSO was born in 1842 at Maitland New South Wales and was the first of five children born to James KELSO of Scotland and Ann TIMMINS (or FLINN) of Ireland. If the records are correct Jane would have been only 16 when she married Stephen. She passed away on 1890 in Dunolly, Victoria, Australia.
The first records for Stephen and Jane date from 1863 at Dunolly with the birth of their first child Alfred. Over a period of 16 years Stephen and Jane had eight children in the area of Dunolly and Bet Bet. Stephen was described variously as a miner and farmer and died in 1879 at Dunolly. At the time of Stephen's death Jane had a young family to take care of and the children ranged in age from 16 to less than one year old. Jane lived for a further 11 years and died at age 48 in 1890. Jane was buried on the 27th March 1890 at Dunolly.
