Marriage*15 December 1679She married Joseph Leonard of Taunton, son of James Leonard and Mary Jane Martin, on 15 December 1679 in Taunton, Plymouth Colony.5,6

John Bligh of London, Esq.1

d. 1666
Birth*John Bligh of London, Esq. was born in England.1
Historical Note*1641The Irish Rebellion of 1641 began as an attempted coup d'état by the Irish Catholic gentry, who tried to seize control of the English administration in Ireland to force concessions for Catholics. The coup failed and the rebellion developed into an ethnic conflict between native Irish Catholics on one side, and English and Scottish Protestant settlers on the other. In order to raise money for quelling the rebellion, King Charles I, with his Act 16 followed by several amendments, provided that two and one-half million acres of forfeited lands should be allotted to such persons as should advance or adventure money for that purpose, in certain proportions as mentioned in the Act. The Act also instructed that the lands of all persons in rebellion against the Protestants on 23 October 1641, or at any time thereafter, should be forfeited without office or inquisition. The persons advancing moneys were called "adventurers" because the sums advanced were not advanced by way of loan, but by way of "adventure", or speculation, because the lands that were "promised" were dependent on the suppression of the rebellion. The lands, when allocated, were to be held in free and common socage, meaning as payment for services, and not be feudal tenure, meaning threatened by changing rules or forfeiture, and were to be subject to a constant yearly rent reserved to the Crown

The rebellion was not finally repressed until 1652, and in that year an "Ordinance" was passed by the Commonwealth Parliament declaring the rebellion to be ended and defining the classes of forfeiting persons, and the extent to which their estates were forfeited. A further Ordinance in 1653 charged the forfeited lands with the amounts needed to satisfy the claims of the adventurers and with the arrears of pay due to the officers and soldiers. The soldiers' claims were to be satisfied in lands at the same rates as the adventurers.

Many difficulties arose in the carrying out of the Settlement, which was still incomplete in 1660, at the time of the English Restoration and the return of Charles II to the throne.2,3
Marriage*He married Catherine Fuller, daughter of Thomas Fuller.1
Occupation*John was employed as an agent to the adventurers for the estates forfeited by the rebellion in 1641. In that capacity he went over to Ireland in the time of Oliver Cromwell's government and became an adventurer himself by pledging £600. In August 1654, on behalf of himself and two others, John purchased with their joint stock, shares from a variety of other individuals. When their allotments were made they fell in the baronies of Lune and Moghergallen, and in the county of Meath and totaled several thousand acres.1
Death*1666He died in1666.1

Marriage*16 May 1776She married third William Bolton, son of William Bolton and Elizabeth White, on 16 May 1776 in Reading, Middlesex County, Massachusetts (Continental Congress). Most published sources state that William Bolton married Sarah Lewis, and not Sarah Farnsworth. A William Bolton did marry a Sarah Lewis on 18 Sep 1788. However it is believed by current Bolton family reseachers that that marriage was not this William. They are in possession of documentation to verify their information on the Blood, Farnsworth and Bolton lines.1,2,3
Residence*1794Sarah's husband, William Bolton, added to the large farm he had purchased in 1773 in Shirley, Middlesex County, Massachusetts. The house, with the ridgepole parallel with the road and sloping back, after the manner of the time, to a shed in the rear, was conspicuous as the first house west of West Groton. The place became known later as "The Peter Tarbell Place." Near the house there was an old barn, still functioning in 1889 as it had in the days before the Revolutionary War.3,4

Herbert W. Bloomfield1

b. 23 August 1852, d. 19 December 1921
Father*William Bloomfield2
Mother*Selina Whitby2
Birth*23 August 1852Herbert W. Bloomfield was born on 23 August 1852 in Brentwood Borough, Essex County, England,1,3
Baptism28 October 1852 and was baptized on 28 October 1852 at St. Mary the Virgin, Shenfield, Brentwood, Essex County.4
Name VariationHis full name was Herbert William Bloomfield.5
Marriage*1888He married Anna E. McLaughlin in 1888 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.5,1
Census US 1910*8 April 1910Anna E. and Herbert W. Bloomfield were enumerated on the 1910 census taken on 8 April 1910 at 2646 Thompson Street, Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. Herbert was 56 years of age and owned and operated his own butcher shop, and Anna was 40 years of age. They had been married for 22 years, owned their house free of mortgage, and Anna had given birth to seven children, all of whom were living and enumerated with their parents in 1910. Edith A. was 20 years old and worked as a school teacher for the city; Bessie S. was 19 years old and worked as a bookkeeper for a towel mill; Herbert W. Jr. was 17 years old; Gladys M. was 14; Alice S. was 8; Joseph E. was 5; and Henry C. was 3 years old. Herbert Jr., Gladys, Alice and Joseph had all attended school within the census year. Also residing with the Bloomfield family in 1910 was a boarder, Wesley McLaughlin, who was 33 years of age, born in Pennsylvania, and a blacksmith. We suspect he was a relative of Anna's. Additionally, Anna Williams, age 16 and born in Germany, lived with the family and worked as a servant.1
Census US 1920*28 January 1920Anna and Herbert W. Bloomfield were enumerated on the 1920 census taken on 28 January 1920 in Tullytown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Herbert was 67 years of age and a farmer, and Anna was 50 years of age. Herbert's immigration year was recorded as 1880 and he was naturalized in 1890. They owned their farm with a mortgage. Anna's occupation was recorded as traveling salesman, which we feel certain was meant to have been written by the census taker on the next line for the couple's son Herbert Jr. who was 27 years of age and was enumerated in his parent's household. Their married daughter, Gladys Farmer, also resided with her parents in 1920. She was 24 years of age and had given birth to a stillborn son in Tullytown the previous month. We have found no records for her husband, Clayton S. Farmer, following their marriage. The three youngest of the Bloomfield's children were also enumerated with them, and all had attended school within the census year. Allice was 18 years old; Edward was 14; and Chester was 13. Additionally, a farm laborer, William Shock, age 60, was enumerated as a boarder in the Bloomfield household in 1920.6
Death*19 December 1921He died on 19 December 1921 in Tullytown, Bucks County, at age 692,3
Burial*22 December 1921 and was buried on 22 December 1921 in Tullytown Cemetery, Bristol, Bucks County.3,2
