Descendants of James Blunden (Blundon)


James is said to have come from Waterford, County Kilkenny, Ireland with his brother John and first settled in Bay de Verde, Nfld. according to family anecdotes. Other family anecdotes say that another brother emigrated to the U.S. and one to France. Other researchers say that the Irish Blundons who were Catholics went to St Johns. Nfld. and are unrelated to the

Blundens of Bay de Verde who may have come from the south of England.

The list below is assembled mainly from published parish records in an effort to make some sense of the many Blundons / Blundens listed. Some of the links between the various families listed prior to about 1850 are assumed not proven and should be taken as a guide for further research as most generations had similar first names and some moved about the area quite freely. Note the change in the spelling of the surname around the mid 1800s, various listings show the name as Blundon, Blunden or Blundell. Some lines may have reverted to the original spelling and the listings shown here may not reflect the current spelling of the family name. The Blundellís appear, in most cases, to be misspelling by the minister of the day and are shown as Blundon in this list!
