Charlotte Blake-Humphrey nee Harvey: An Overview

The information I have about Charlotte comes from the following sources:

1. Information supplied to me by Carla Woodworth Lynas and based on the 'Original Genealogical Collections, by the late Lieut. Col. Robert John Harvey of Thorpe'.  This is mentioned in a publication called 'Walter Rye, Memoir Bibliography and Catalogue of of his Norfolk Manuscripts in the Norwich Public Libraries' by Geo. A. Stephen published in 1929? by the Public Libraries Committee, Norwich.  Original documents in the Norfolk Archives.
2. Information supplied by Patricia Richardson.  There was a final daughter of Charlotte and Robert Blake-Humphrey.  This was Isabella Charlotte (1851-22 Feb 1932) (died at age of 81).  She married the second John Gurney of Earlham (1845-1887) my notes on him are that he was Gurney's Bank, Mayor of Norwich 1874. Also of Hoveton Hall, and Sprowston - according to Landed Gents of 1874 it was he who gave large amount of money to Corporation of City of London to purchase Ham House, West Ham, following the demise of Gurney Overend Bank.  (Sam Gurney's home, brother to Elizabeth Fry).  Lots of descendants of which I am one through their daughter, Laura Gurney, who married Edward Gurney Buxton, descendant of Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton.  Patricia Richardson.
3. A mention in the book  'Isabel, Mrs. Gurney afterwards the Lady Talbot de Malahide, 1851-1932' by her son Samuel Gurney, published in 1935.
