Edward John Blond, son of George Louis Le Blond ( Blond ). Born 1 November 1869. Brisbane, Australia Married 26 May 1890. Brisbane, Australia Died 13 March 1939. Ipswich, Australia. This is the only photo that I have of my grandfather. Of interest is that the photo was taken at the wedding of Edward's eldest daughter Lillian Elizabeth Blond to James Alfred Tingle on 28 June 1913. Edward's wife Eleanor Blond nee Marks ( my grandmother ) was not in the wedding group photo as she was giving birth to my father Alfred James Blond on that day!! There were nine children in the family - 21 and a half years between eldest and youngest! Edward is the brother of George James Blond ( b. 1864 ). See blog posting below. Brothers George and Edward Blond married sisters Mary and Eleanor Marks.
