Blanche was baptised on 18th May 1856 at Ridlington, Norfolk, where her father Rev. John Webb Flavell was Rector. He seems to have been a man of nervous disposition with delicate health despite fathering at least ten children during his second marriage. His first wife died in “child bed”. Blanche did not marry but lived most of her life with members of her family in Norfolk. By 1901, she had moved with her mother and other family members to the Worthing area. However, a notice appeared in a Worthing newspaper appealing for her whereabouts which was unknown after 1914. There does not appear to have been anything sensational about her temporary disappearance. She appears on the 1921 Census. She died at 11 Ethelred Road, Tarring on 9th April 1932 aged 75, although her home address was 64 Windsor Road, Worthing. She left £427 17s 6d to Ethel Mary Henderson, spinster.
