Bladon's of Sudbury, Tanworth in Arden & Birmingham

This is a brief description of my own Bladon family. My great x 5 grandfather was Edward and he married at Solihull Warwickshire and moved to Tanworth in Arden Warwickshire. His children settled in Stoke Prior Worcestershire, Haselor Warwickshire, Birmingham Warwickshire, Reddich Worcestershire, Moseley Worcestershire, in fact all areas in that vacinity.
Other Bladon's that appear on the tree are:- Thomas William Bladon matress and bedding manufacurer of Birmingham Warwickshire , Edward Bladon baker of Harbourne Staffordshire, John Bladon of Barton Under Needwood Staffordshire and William Bladon of London.
There are many many more as I have the tree back to Thomas Bladon who married in 1679 at Somershall Herbert Derbyshire! However I think I have it back further and am ploughing through the Vernon Family Papers (of Sudbury Hall Derbyshire) at the County Record Office!
It took me 15 years to find Edward's parentage and join my tree up with 3 other Bladon one's through wills and parish registers and even land deeds with the Vernon family.
It is my belief that the Bladon's origionated from this area (Burton on Trent, Uttoxeter Staffordshire and Sudbury Derbyshire). Looking at the list of other trees you will see that.
