The son of the Reverend Charles Blackman and Flora King, he was born on 9th September 1844, baptized on 4th November of that year, and died in December 1913 in Norwich, Norfolk. He married Anne Mary, the youngest daughter of the Reverend George Andrew Jacob DD in 1871. They had children:

1 Winifred Susan, born 13th August 1872, died 1950.
2 Elsie, born 10th July 1874, died 1950.
3 Flora, born 17th January 1876. She married Gordon Browne, a Lt in the Worcestershire Regiment.
4 Aylward Manley, born in 1883, died in 1956.
5 Henry George Barham, born in 1887.

He is described as a scholar in 1851, as a tutor in 1861, on both occasions as living in Chesham Bois. In 1871 he was vicar at Preston Patrick, at Heversham, Westmoreland. In 1881 he was priest in holy orders at Dawlish, Devon. By 1891 he is described as a schoolmaster, again at Dawlish. In 1901 we find him living in Acton and finally in 1911 at Norwich, Norfolk , where he died in 1913.

There is a suggestion that he ran a private school from the rectory at Chesham Bois, educating children whose parents were serving in the Colonies. His wife Anne Mary died in Kensington, London in 1907.
