As well as investigating
my direct ancestors I am also researching my cousins
line who are Blundons from
These pages first created Jan 2003 will attempt to post specific Blundon / Blunden information, particularly family trees, in an effort to make sense of the hundreds of B.M.D. records listed. Since that time several researchers have kindly shared their family information so that as of Dec 2008 my main data base has over 850 individuals descended from or related to the original Blundens of B de V.
Throughout the 18th & 19th Centurys the spellings gradually changed from Blunden to Blundon and were often used interchangeably depending upon who entered the information. It appears from the 1935 Census that by that time the majority of families were using the latter spelling, these list may not reflect those changes. Corrections and additions are always welcome.
I will be pleased to post any information provided so that we can expand this family tree.
The extractions from Parish records are not all inclusive, more will be extracted and posted as time permits.
