  1. The parentage & children is a bit of guesswork as there are no baptismal records in Horne for the period 1694-1711. In addition following this period there were a number of 'Adult Baptisms' implying that maybe baptisms did not take place in this period. In particular Ruth Blundell & Judith Mills were baptised on the same day as 'Adults'
  2. No baptismal record for Judith Blundell can be found. However a Judith Mills was baptised 'an Adult' on 21st April 1723 in Horne, Surrey and this may account for no baptismal record at birth. The marriage record shows both John Mills and Judith Blundell as living in Horne and George Blundell was the only Blundell family in Horne at that time that were producing children. The second male child of John & Judith was called George possibly after her father.
  3. There were in fact two George Blundell's living in Horne. The other George married Sarah Clements on 28/10/1673 in Bletchingly, and had six children (George, Elizabeth, Mary, Sarah, Ruth and John (baptised 2/1/1688 in Horne). (details confirmed by Will which was proved on 21/06/1710 + wife's Sarah's Will of 1722 + son John's Will of 1716).
