- Hi Everyone,I am forwarding this message with the hope that someone on the list can help Tony. I am not able to get to the library for a few days so was hoping someone could look up the cemetery reference for Hugh E de Blaquiere. Thanks in advance for any help.Linda MurrayAFHS Secretary----- Original Message -----To: secretary@...Sent: Friday, August 19, 2005 1:02 PMSubject: de Blaquiere .Hello Linda Murray .I am sending this E-mail in the hope you may be able to help me ! I have a reference to a Hugh E de Blaquiere from the Alberta Burnsland Cementery Index , 1994 , compiled by your Society.I have been working on my family history for more years than I care to think about and I am convinced there are descendants in Canada . I am aware of Peter Boyle deB (a member of the Legislative Council and Chancellor of the Toronto University) however several members of others branches have moved to Canada over the years .They are not easy to trace .I also know there are quite a few Blaquieres` in Canada , however there are not so many de Blaquieres`, hence my intrest in H E deB above .So what am I after ? has your society any info on the above H E deB or any other deBs` in Alberta or any other part of Canada ? . If not could you point me in the right direction please !If by chance your society has an interest in the de Blaquiere familys` Irish , English , Australian or U S , I would be very pleased to let you have copies of all I have .Best wishes , J A (Tony) de B .PS . Are there any descendents of Peter Boyle`s family in Canada today that you know of ?Thanks again , Tony .
