Blundell, Joseph L. (1839–1906)

We regret having to announce the death of Mr Joseph Blundell, who passed away at his residence at Peat's Ferry a fortnight since. The immediate cause of death was Bright's disease, and the deceased gentleman had been ailing for some time, so his demise was not altogether unexpected by his family. The late Mr Blundell was the eldest son of the late Joseph Blundell, of Colo, and was prominently associated with the old boating days on the river. Many years back he was in partnership with the late William Turnbull, and later on with his brother-in-law, John Wall, in running a vessel named the Lass O'Gowrie between the Hawkesbury and Sydney. He also traded with other boats at different periods, and the last one, the Jessie Lee, he had in the Colo-Windsor trade over twenty years ago. For a long time, up to ten years back, Mr Blundell, resided at Colo on the farm now occupied by Mr H. Jones, when with his family he removed to Peat's Ferry. The deceased gentleman, who was brother to Mr C. Blundell of Upper Colo, leaves a widow and grown up family to mourn their loss. The eldest son, Mr John Blundell, is well known as the Colo boatman for the Narara Company.
