Note
Death notice dated 13 Apr 1895 shows age as 102, but this seems unlikely as his father, John, was presumably born shortly after his parents' marriage in 1777. Shown as William Blackett, farmer, aged 82, in 1881 census and William Blackett, aged 97, living with son William, in 1891 census. Probably the William Blackett shown as holding 55 acres of land in Lot 56 Prince Edward Island in 1861. (Separate entry shows family as: males 3 between 5 & 16 yrs., 2 between 45 & 60 yrs., females 1 between 5 & 16 yrs., 1 between 45 & 60 yrs. Totals 2 married, 5 unmarried.) William Blackett, farmer, Annandale included in Lovell's Prince Edward Island Directory 1871. Commissioned the boat "Success" in 1826. Will dated 12 Jan 1885 leaves eastern half of "the old homestead or the farm" to son Robert and western half to Robert if he pays $36 to his brother William. All personal property, cattle, horse, sheep, pigs, machinery, household furniture and every other property whatsoever to son William's wife Bridget Blackett. One half of land on Lot 55 consisting of twelve and one half acres to son Robert on condition he pays to his brother William the $36 mentioned above. If Robert does not live on the old homestead or farm then his share of the land on Lot 55 shall belong to William. Exors. John Swallow of Little River and Lauzon Batchelder.
