The Blake family has already been quite well documented. John Johnston Blake and his wife, Mary have already been "created" on Gwulo, as has their son Charles Henry Blake, known as Harry. Although I knew that J.J. Blake and my grandfather, C.E. Warren had been linked through their ownership of the Unity Stand at Happy Valley since 1904, I was surprised to see from a "Passengers Departed" list that the elder Warren children sailed to England in 1913 in the company of the Blake family.
