I'm getting more and more confused thanks to so many family trees written about same family of Blythes. I have 4 completely different coats of arms. I also have a Samuel Blythe who died before his wife was born and then went on to have 10 children, plus he died in 1745 in Norton Lees Derbyshire but was buried in Birmingham in 1779. Don't people ever read their own trees?

I want to untangle this family as I feel its a tale worth telling but some days I just feel grrrrrr.

I just have visions of poor old Samuel propped up on a chair in the corner for 34 years before they decided to take him out and bury him. And meanwhile they had moved house to Birmingham.

As always Duckweed. If it's a story worth telling, then you have to do it your way.
If you treat him as though he is member of your own family, then you ignore all the other misinformation and do it all for yourself.

If he is sat in that old chair, I bet he's having a right chuckle to himself.
