Blakefield, Charles (1807–1878)

Mr. C. [Charles] Blakefield died last week at Molong. He leaves a widow and several children. Mr. Blakefield was a kindly-hearted, energetic man, of strong political convictions which he was apt to enunciate in the most unreserved way. He had passed the allotted span of human existence by two years, but retained his faculties to the last. He was one of the commissioners elected in 1854, to manage the markets of the town of Parramatta.
