Thomas Blood and sons of Cannon St, Birmingham
« on: Saturday 23 December 17 05:44 GMT (UK) »
Thomas Blood and his son Thomas (born 1765 - 1839) were a toy makers and glass pinchers of Cannon St Birmingham. The family lived in Temple St and then in 1820 moved to Cannon St living at No 25 between 1820 and 1839.
The second Thomas left a will (secured from Ancestry) showing he had a large portfolio of properties around Tamworth and in Birmingham particularly Cannon St (facsimile from Ancestry) The will divided the properties between his sons George and William. George, who took up articles with an attorney in Cannon St when he was 15 and died in 1839 claiming to be a bachelor leaving his estate to his farmer brother William in Tamworth.
There is a christening certificate and marriage certificate for a George Blood Moore. The christening certificate (St Mary's Birmingham) states the mother Mary Moore father is George Moore, lawyer. The Wedding certificate from All Saints, Warwick on 5th November 1846, states father is George Blood, Lawyer.
I am assuming the mother was alone at a mass christening at St Mary's.

It is most likely that there is a complete muddle with wifes and fathers at this time.

Is any one else researching the Bloods of Cannon St and Tamworth

Cheers!!

What you have is the illegitimate son of George Blood and Mary Moor named George Blood Moor.
Mary possibly did not want the words base born written into the record.

By the way, George dies 13 November 1863 his EXECUTOR was his brother William, both sons of Thomas Blood who died 1839.
It might be worth getting a copy to see if he left money to George Blood Moor
ADDED
The description of probate on ancestry does say William is his only next of kin.

Thanks

I am currently assuming that the mother had the child christened by herself giving the amended name of the father but retaining his profession.

I am having problems identifying the mother and indeed the wives of the grandfather Thomas and the great grandfather Thomas Blood.

The child obviously was quite aware of the identity of his father. reference the marriage certificate.

Thanks for your support on my theories.
