Thomas Blayney 1820 - 1875


This pedigree [130] was initially thought to be linked to my New Zealand Blayney line. It gave the father of Thomas Blayney (1820-1875) as Thomas Blayney b?1770 London, England, a Taylor (and son of a shoemaker), who would have been 50 when he sired this Thomas. It had his mother as Rebecca Lambert who is known to have been married to Thomas Blayney (1796-1854), a Journeyman Tailor. This couple did have a son Thomas 1827-1913, clearly a different person. The birth and death in Wales is inconsistent with his parents being Rebecca Lambert and Thomas Blayney (1754-1811/30) or (1796-1854) who are all known to have lived their lives in London.

The ancestors of Thomas Blayney (c.1820-1875) as yet speculative. There was a Thomas BLAYNEY baptised on 28Aug1825 at Llanllwchaiarn (a suburb of Newtown, Wales) who could fit the bill. If so, he would be a 3rd cousin to Alexander Henry BLAYNEY
