I'm also trying to link up my part of my Blundell ancestory, the Blundells of Bedfordshire with the Blundells of Lancashire... My G.G grandfather and my G.G.G Uncle, Joseph Hight Blundell and Hight Blundell printed a Blundell of Bedfordshire tree, but dismissed the claims that the Blundells of Lancashire - of which William and Nicholas were, I think, - were the ancestors of Blundells of Cardington...Here's what they wrote..."The Blundells of Cardington, now extinct in the male line, claimed to be the descendants of the Blundells of Ince, Lancs, (bit about the coat of arms skipped) Their published pedigree gives, however, Richard Blundell their undoubted ancestor (mine too) as SON of Thomas Blundell of Harlington, Beds, and makes the said Thomas Blundell (as a son of William Blundell of Ince, living in 1461) come from Lancashire and settles in Beds. But Richard Blundell was living- see his son Johns will in 1546 - and Thomas Blundell died before 1437- this would make Richard Blundell over 110 years old.Therefore, Thomas Blundell is more likely to be descended from the bedfordshire Blundells... It is abundantly clear (not to me!) therefore that either their claim to the Lancashire descendant is not warrented and the Blundells of Cardington are descended from a branch of the Blundells of bedfordshire, or the Blundells of Cardington did not descend from Thomas Blundell of Harlington" What a mess! I'm convinced that the connection to the lancashire branch is there somewhere, but I just can't find it either, probably due to a mistake in the records 200 odd years before Nicholas and William the Cavalier!!! Can you connect anything? Would be very interested!!!!
