I was directed here by the website of the Bliss FHS. My gg grandmother was Caroline Mary Bliss born Margate 1847, died Folkestone, 1910. Caroline married William Henry May, a mariner in Folkestone. I have Caroline's ancestry back through her father Henry John (1818 - 1900); his mother Patience Bliss 1796 - 1848 (Patience only married the father of her children after his first wife died so the early children all bore her name) and Patience's father, John Bliss born c1756 and who died in Margate in 1811. Although I have some idea of John's parentage I haven't been able to prove it so haven't included it here.
