Matlock Visit

I visited Matlock again last Saturday, hoping it would be the last time before Christmas, however I don't think it will be!
I ordered the Glebe Terriers for Somersal Herbert but there were noBladon's mentioned so I decided to look again at the vernon family Papers index in case I missed anything. I found the Sudbury Manor Court Rolls up to the 1640's and decided to look at those. They were full of Bladon's and this bundle only started in 1600, there are earlier ones! Typically I ran out of time so another visit before Christmas!
