Bladon family gathering

In May 2005 a Bladon gathering (decendents of Edward Bladon and Elizabeth Bushell who married in 1790 at Solihull Warwickshire) was held in Derby Derbyshire. Themain reason for this being that one of our 'clan' was over from Canada. The Bristish weather was kind to us and the sun graced us with its presence all day. There were displays of the tree, Bladon lamps and blow lamps, photos of Bladons, graves and houses, and any other heirlooms. Helena was given a silver? casket (we are trying to work out what it is) which was presented to Mary Ann Bladon in 1873. Mary Ann passed the casket to her niece Doris Helen Bladon and her son has now passed it to Helena. Mary Ann was the school mistress at Moseley National school Worcestershire for over 50 years. After the gathering was organised, the brick wall was knocked down relating to Edward's baptism so a possible tree was also on display.
A good time was had by all, and more relatives were discovered!
