I have been searching the Blythe family, famous for their 2 bishops Geoffrey Bishop of Litchfield and Coventry, and John Bishop of Salisbury. Now I've found a 3rd Bishop Blythe!! Robert Blythe Bishop of Down and later sufflicant Bishop of Ely. Listed in the list of Cambridge academics it say he was brother to John Blythe (but doesn't mention Geoffrey) Other sources say he came from Norton, same parish and then 2 sources claim he is from Norton Lees. My problem is that none of my previous sources have mentioned a third bishop and you'd think they would, wouldn't you? He was originally Abbot of Darley Abbey, which is Derbyshire so he definitely started in same county. But he isn't named as an executor in any of the families wills and he was the last to die as he died in 1547. What do you think? Someone found another Blythe from Derbyshire and leapt to conclusions or have I found a genuine third Brother Bishop? My other sources say of a Roger who died without children. Could he have been Robert not Roger. I have no record of a Roger buried in Norton church in the family vault. Robert was buried elsewhere like the other Blythe Bishops. I haven't found any baptisms early enough for any of the Bishops. Anyone know where to look for the biography of Robert Blythe?
