Looking for BLACKHALL of Bathhurst

Journal by familysecrets

I recently become aware of my ancestry dating back to an aboriginal woman (Diana MUDGEE) and a ships deserter (John BLACKHALL). John married Elizabeth, the daughter of Diana. I have been lucky enough to find a fair amount of info and photos relating to their families but would love more information on the Jnr Mr John BLACKHALL (and his family) who was a school teacher who travelled around the countryside. The younger John BLACKHALL married Elizabeth Alice O'NEAL and they were my grandparents. I would love to fill in some gaps in my tree with mor info on these people. They all come from the Mudgee/Bathurst area.

Sorry to take so long with a response but I'm not on here very often. I am researching the Blackhall name in Scotland, USA and Canada and came across your query, the part about John deserting from a ship tied in with another bit of info that I had. If you don't have all the details of John's ancestors, I have a website at www.btinternet.com/~jimreidford and if you have a look there you will see what I have on him. If you wish to add to the info that I have please e-mail me at
