Edward Blanchard b 1767 Claythorpe, Lincs IP: 18.104.22.168 Posted on January 4, 2014 at 04:48:51 PM by Theresa Thomson
As part of my family history research, I have recently been concentrating on the Blanchard side of my family.
My mother was born Irene Blanchard (1926, daughter of Frank Blanchard (b May 1896) & Alice Rigby).
I believe I have successfully tracked the older generations of Blanchards in my family, in brief:
- William Blanchard (b June 1869), Bratoft, Lincs, m Bertha Cartwright (August 1890);
- John Robinson Blanchard (b 1835), Huttoft, Lincs, m Keziah Sharp (1863);
- John Robinson Blanchard was born out of wedlock to Grace Blanchard (b 1809, Gayton le Marsh, Lincs. (Grace then married William Rhodes in 1843);
- Edward Blanchard (b 1767), Claythorpe/Alford, Lincs, m Ann Baker (1804).
Any ideas or advice on how to continue back?
A thread from 2008 on Geneology.com suggests that there might be a family tree on this site that could go back as far as 1587 for this particular line of Blanchards. What do members think?
