Hello Mark

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

To Glynis Maxwell

Are you still interested in the Blaydon family of Swaffam Prior/Bulbeck? I am the grandson of Manoah Blaydon. I have some of the ancestory of the family.

Hi Frank,

My name is Mark Blayden - I'm linked through Charles Blayden (mid 1800's) to the Blaydon's of Swaffam Prior. I'm in Australia.

Can we discuss the connection. My direct email address is markblayden@bigpond.com.

Hello, I am just looking into family tree history and have found that my Great Great Grandad was Levi Blaydon his daughter was Delilah and her daughter Emily Alice was my Gran. Do you have much information about the family as I never knew my grandparents

My findings are concerning your side of the family is that they may be related but I have not been able to prove it. I did find some information concerning a Levi. The Levi I found appears to be Jewish (based on names only) with a sibling being Manoah born in 1853 in Swaffham Prior, Sarah and others. Is this about the time you are looking at?

Hi Mark - yes, my g-g-grandfather Nathan was Levi's brother. There were also 2 other brothers, Hilkiah and Noah. For details, please see my family tree http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/13538363/family/pedigree?fpid...

I'm quite sure they weren't Jewish, just the parents seemed to have an affection for Biblical names (as did most in those times)

Thanks Glynis.

It is only the names I was going on. I can't see the site because it requires payment. I have a great deal more information than my Dad - Barry was able to supply you previously. If you like I can provide that - to you or any others.

Thank you so much, Mark - I would like that very much . I think I talked to your sister a few years ago when you (or perhaps your Dad) were embarking on a trip to Cambridgeshire -- does that sound right? And I'd be more than happy to send you my tree (you can also see much of it on www.genesreunited.co.uk, which is much more reasonable. I could send it to you as a word document report or as a Gedcom file, if you can use that.

Also, you might want to check with your local library to see if they have the Ancestry database. Many do, now (the one I work at does), although the Ancestry Library Edition doesn't have the trees, it does provide free access to the records themselves.

At any rate, I'd love to share information with you -- am contacting you directly through this site with my personal email address

Sorry, myglustick - I'm still getting the hang of figuring our the threads of these messages, and I think I rather bypassed responding to you -- my apologies. Of course, I'd also be more than happy to also send you any information I have -although I don't have anything from Delilah down to you, I can take the family back a few generations before Delilah -- either as a report or, if you can use it, a Gedcom file.

Hi Glynis, Thank you for coming back to me, I would be very interested to have any information that you can give me to check that I have got my information correct, I am new to this family tree searching, and it is very easy to keep adding people who might be correct or not. Delilah was my g g grandmother (what a super name)who married a Martin Adams born in Germany, I will be searching is past very soon, so a report would be great,
I gather from your messages you are not in England, Which generation went abroad and when, sorry I have so many questions about family I never new that I had.
(my email is glu@btinternet.com) Thankyou Julia.
