  • Notes 
    • "Very little is known of the early history of the Blossomville family, especially in connexion with this parish. Gilbert de Blossomville, the Domesday tenant, appears to have been succeeded by a Robert de Blossomville, who, about 1150, gave lands in Cold Brayfield to Harrold Priory, Bedfordshire. In 1185 William de Blossomville sued Gerin de Charleton for lands in Turvey, but his successor, Robert de Blossomville, is the first mentioned in connexion with Newton, where in 1202 he quitclaimed half a virgate to William Miles. Simon de Blossomville was living in 1232; by 1255, when Gilbert de Blossomville owned land here, the place was already known as Newton Blossomville. The line seems to have ended in a female heir, Alice de Blossomville, who with John Druel, probably her son, in 1265 granted to Simon de Blossomville and Maud his wife for life lands in Newton Blossomville with reversion to the granters."
