Surnames: BLAYDEN (BLADON, BLAYDON)
I believe from previous postings of yours and your Dad's that you're descended from Charles Blayden? I'm also descended from Blaydens from Swaffham Bulbeck and Swaffham Prior and have a fairly complete family tree. (includes Matthew b. ca 1768, his sons Richard b. 1802, John b. 1809, William b. 1814 (there were daughters as well) and Levi b. 1836, Nathan b. 1837, Hilkiah b. ca 1844, Matthew b.ca 1848, Noah b. ca 1852, Manoah b. ca 1853, sons of - I think- the same William Bladon, and their descendents).
I also have some information on the marriages and children of Richard and John.
If any of these sound like your forebears, let me know and I'll send you in full all the information I have.
I am great-granddaughter of a Blayden who stayed in England.
Looking forward to hearing from you
