  • Notes 
    • First recorded in 1673, an immigrant servant; free later that same year. A "taylor" in 1675, a planter by 1676, with one slave, later four slaves and one servant. Dr. Lois Green Carr's records (citation details below) call his wife only "Margaret", but she notes his their household also contained "Patrick Blomfield, son of John Blomfield."

      His will of 17 Oct 1702 bequeaths to his son James and heirs, personalty, and also confirms to James and heirs the estate "Dry Dockett". To son Mark at 18, all of his other lands, except if Mark dies without issue, lands to pass to daughters … and "to Japhaele and Maryeena Blumfield and Ellinor Dickins, personalty". Thus another Bloomfield connection to the Tant family.
