The trouble with writing a blogg


Loyal Member
is that when you have something wrong its there for all the world to see. I was writing up the history of Bishop Robert Blythe and realised that the reason I can't find who these cousins of his are in relation to the other Blythe Bishops is that they are not related at all. Robert Blythe is actually from Lincolnshire not Derbyshire at all. Someone did a bit of cobbling Robert to the Norton tree and when I started looking deeper I realised. In Abbey documents he is referred to as Robert Moulton and in his will he leaves money to Moulton in Holland church in Lincolnshire. He is Robert Blythe but when he became a monk he took the name of the place he was born, so he became Robert Moulton. I've written a disclaimer several places and eddited my blogg but it is going to go round the internet for centuries now I suppose.
