Not known.  It is possible that he appears on the 1901 census as a soap maker, living in Westhoughton, Lancs, aged 37.  His place of bith is transcribed as "Lancashire . . . " which is not much help.  Alternatively, he may already have died in Portsea - see below.


Possibly married June quarter 1913 in Blackburn.  Bride's surname "Irving".  No children appear to have been registered with this name as the mother's maiden name. This either means that they had no children or that she had been married before and Irving was not her maiden name, but her married name.

Thomas P Balshaw died in Blackburn in the March quarter of 1948, aged 86.
