Francis Blazey, elder son of Samuel Blazey and Elizabeth Wiggins, married Amy Rosa Joslin (born 5 Feb 1865 in Kensington), daughter of Robert Hurrell Joslin from Chelmsford, Essex and Ann Graver from Hemsby, Norfolk, in 1892, at the church of St Paul's, Bow Common. Clearly not the current, 20th Century brutalist incarnation, but the previous church that was largely destroyed in the Second World War, and therefore demolished in the 1950s.

Francis and Amy had six children, all born in St George in the East

  1. Hilda Alice Eleanor Blazey born 1892 (died 1894, aged 1)
  2. Rosalie Hilda Blazey born 7 May 1895 (see below)
  3. Alfred Hurrell Blazey born 28 Jul 1898, bap. 14 Aug 1898 at the church of St George in the East, in Cannon Street Road, Stepney.
  4. William Francis Blazey born 1902 
  5. Dorothy Alice Blazey born 1904 (died 1904, aged 0)
  6. Ida Winifred Blazey born 1907 
Their address at the time of Alfred's baptism was given as 35 Tarling Street, St George in the East and Francis Blazey's occupation as Dock Labourer.

In 1901, living in 35, Tillman Street, St George in the East, were Francis Blazey (33) Labourer (civil service), Amy (33), Rosalie (5) and Alfred (2).

By 1911, they had moved to 22 Upper Chapman StSt George in the East. Francis Blazey (44) described as "Leading Man Of Labourers", with wife Amy (44), Rosalie (16), Alfred (13), William (10) and Ida (4). 

Frances Blazey of 22 Chapman Street, E1, died, on 18 Apr 1938, aged 70. He left £313 9s 7d (worth £21,610 today) to his widow, Amy Rosa Blazey.

In 1939, Amy was living with her married daughter, Ida Jarvis, at 30 Warren Road, Merton, Surrey. Amy died, in Surrey, in 1941, aged 75.

Rosalie Hilda Blazey of 4 Queensbridge DriveHerne Bay, Kent died, on 2 Jul 1981, aged 86. She had never married.
