Hello there.Still waiting to hear from you. did you know that John Bland or John Bland Smith was married several times.
To Isabella Drake. Susan Deblere who was born in Germany. Mary Tinker. and a lady by the name of Johanna.All this has so intrigued me that I have got info going back to 1496.Being a Bland that was born in Yorkshire.In one record it states that John Bland was John Blount the Knight.Please get in touch if you have not got these records already you will be very surprised. Cheers Eve in OZ.
