John Bloxom entered Virginia about 1672 and married a Mary (Gerrard, Woodman, or Johnson) shortly therafter. It is his decendants who make up the Bloxom, Blocksom, Bloxsom, Bloxham, Blossom family lines. I have been able to trace the Woodman and William lines of the family. Does anyone have information on the other lines which came through John, Johnson, Thomas, Nicholas, and Richard. What is the story about Richard who was left a shilling in his father's will to cut him off.

Woodman Bloxom/Rebecca Bloxom

Hi - Have Woodman/Watson connection but believe it is what you have already. I have other Watsons connected with Blox. If you will email me what you need in more detail I'll be glad to look it up. From the states you've mentioned I think you probably have this already...but??? Do you know anything about Blocksom, Bloxom, Bloxsom, etc. who went to Huntington, Long Island NY or anyone who was born in and left Huntington? Need help badly!

Great to receive your message. The New York connection has been a mystery with one clue:
22SEP1853 "Died at Philadelphia, age 34, Ann B. [Bloxom] Watson, wife of John W. Watson.
(New York and Berlin, Maryland, papers please copy.)"
So, what do you think?

Checked my records but could not find an Ann B. Bloxsom. Do have Watsons but none connected with Ann. Sorry I couldn't help. Maybe next time.

I may be of some help...

I too am looking for information regarding the Blocksom line. I have a fairly complete geneology dating back to my ancestor John Bloxom (c.1644-1715). I too am wondering about that shilling thing as my ancestor was his son Richard. My genology is very good from about 1800 on but my main intrest in the family's activities during the Revolutionary War (1775-1783) period. I have very little information other than a name and offspring - often with no birth or death dates. Email me at: and we can chat.

Do any of you know if Washington BLOXOM (b 1805 VA d 1863 Wilcox county AL) is related to the line being discussed here?
Have Washington married to Lorena POWELL; one of their children was Albert A. BLOXOM. He married Amanda LEWIS and one of their children was an Albert Monroe BLOXOM (b 1864 AL d 1940 Caddo parish LA)
Many thanks

My great-great-great grandfather was Washington Bloxom. According to the info I have he and Lorena (Lorency or Lurency) Powell were married Jan. 10, 1830. She was the daughter of Henry W. and Mary "Polly" Powell. I have no info on his (Washington's) parents. Jasper Newton Bloxom
was my great-great grandfather, born Oct. 30, 1830.His brothers and sisters--Leslie Bloxom born ca 1831--ALBERT Bloxom born 1832, married Amanda H.Lewis Dec. 11, 1852 Wilcox Co. Alabama--Martha born ca 1841--Henry Clay Bloxom born April 23, 1844--Frances (Fannie)Bloxom bor Oct. 2, 1852....Jasper N. Bloxom took his family to Brazil after the Civil War and returned to the US by way of Galveston, TX. He then moved to Navarro Co. Texas and is buried in the Hamilton-Beeman Cemetery, Navarro Co., Texas. Let me hear from you --we are distantly related--Brenda
