I am researching my Blatchley ancestors and have only managed to get as far back as William, a fancy cabinet maker in Bath at the turn of the 18th - 19th centuries. I know that he married Ann or Nancy James in the parish of Lyncombe & Widcombe, Bathin 1819, and they had 9 known children, all girls except my 2 x great grandfather, Edwin. The children were all born in Bath.I know that William was born in Somerset, but I don't know where. I believe there may be a link to the Wiltshire branch, just over the border in Colerne, but I don't know how far back this goes. If anybody has come across a William Blatchley born in Somerset, probably in the 1790s as he married in 1819, I would love to hear from you. Any other Blatchley information gratefully accepted, too!
