Hercules Henry Blincko

I found this baptism at St Mary of Lambeth 2.12 1887 while looking for someone else. As Hercules doesn't feature in the Book I thought I'd pass it on.

"Ada Louise daughter of Hercules Henry and Louise Blincko upholsterer of 4 Albert Embankment Lambeth"

Hercules Henry married Louisa Dickinson in Camberwell District December quarter 1871. He had previously married in Newington District June quarter 1841 to Mary Lowe. He died aged 81 in Southwark District December quarter 1809 aged 89. He appears in the 1901 census as an "upholder" aged 81 in the district of St George the Martyr Southwark having been born in Southwark with wife Lousia (sic) aged 58 and born Walworth, children Lousia 28, William 26 and Alice 24 all born Lambeth. The two girls were teachers and William was a printer.

Hercules Henry was baptised at Christchurch Southwark 30.1.1820 son of William Henry Blincko and his wife Sally. He had a sister (same parents) called Alice baptised at Isleworth 30.9.1821 and a possible sister Sophia baptised Christchurch Southwark 25.8.1811. Her parents were William & Sally Blincko. He had at least two children by his first wife Mary Lowe both baptised at Christchurch Southwark, Henry William on 13 11.1842 and Mary Eleanor on 1.9.1844
