Two Blinco brothers from Hedgerley in Buckinghamshire, England, left English farm life to become successful father figures for a vast family spread across Australia. This account details their origins, migration and resettlement in Western Australia and Queensland, Australia.

This book seeks to present an account of Henry and Alfred’s early life in England, their migration to Australia and what became of their children, all born in this new country.  The scope of this collaborative study has therefore been limited to:
 - Thomas Blinco and his wives, Elizabeth Cull, and Elizabeth Salter;
 - Henry and Alfred Blinco, their siblings; and the first Australian born children to Henry and Alfred Blinco.

As with most family histories, more is known about the younger generations than their predecessors. Much of the content presented for the older generations has been derived from historical documents.  For the younger generation, family lore has allowed an embellishment of the records to personalise their characters.  Where possible, facts are cited to government records or publicly available researched and/or published references to allow the reader, to trace the original material should further study be embarked upon in the future.  Where conclusions have been reached using family lore, or have been speculated by the authors, they have been clearly identified as such.

Information has been sought for this book from all members of the family through all avenues and publications, such as the Blencowe Families Association newsletter.  Sketch maps of relevant localities in Western Australia and southeast Queensland are provided for general reference.
