That is a coincidence, coming across your Blewden names after having exchanged messages earlier. I have been researching Beatrice Lillian Scott who I think married Peter Sydney Enting somtime between 1938 and 1946. I found that Peter Enting had married Eileen May Blewden in 1924. Do you have a death date for her ?.
A relative had told me that Beatrice Lillian Scott had married an Enting. I found that in the 1946 Timaru Electral Roll Beatrice and Peter were both living at the same address, 16 Collingwood St, Timaru. Therefore seems that the two were married.
Beatrice Lillian Scott was the daughter of my grandfather's (Alfred Vickers Scott) brother (George Litson Scott). I don't have a great deal of information on George Litson Scott. Only found out he was my grandfather's brother about two weeks ago.

Would love to be in touch with any Blewden researchers as I believe I am able to add more information regarding the UK Blewdens.
Hi - I came across your posting whilst doing research on the Soar family. Mary Ann Blewden was my great great grandmother through her marriage to John Hutchinson Soar. I am the great grand daughter of Richard Soar # 3 and grand daughter of Frederick Charles Soar. I have a number of copies of a booklet that was produced in 1988 "Quarantined on arrival: the Soar family in New Zealand, 1863-1988" that you referred to above and can forward some copies if you would like them. It refers to Mary Ann and details of their journey to NZ in 1863. I work in the family business Soar Printing in Auckland and we printed the book for the anniversary. I would be interested in any further information you have on Mary Ann Blewden - previously Soar and nee Bower.
