I think the surname should be Blodgett. There are entries on the internet for that name in the same location.
West Yorks; ---- Illingworth, Marshall, Muffit/Muffett/Murfitt, Barber, Sanderson, Townend, Barraclough, Lister -- and lots more. Locations mainly in Birstall parish - Hartshead-- Drighlington --Adwalton --Mirfield - Heckmondwike --Kippax - Sherburn in Elmet.

Ireland ------Cleary, Whelan - Nenagh.
Dowling - Monasterevin
Daly - Westmeath

Lancashire ---- Smith from Alston , Johnson and Fairclough---- Tarleton and loads more from Tarleton and Accrington areas.

1. Are you sure he was Lord Bladgett, or was he lord of the manor? There are no mentions of either surname on www.thepeerage.com which is pretty comprehensive, so I'd suggest lord of the manor. I can't find a Bladgett record in the TNA catalogue; probates for the time in Haughley don't relate to either surname.
2. There won't be parish registers for the time - it's too early.
3. Other possible sources are local histories, just maybe the Victoria County History. You might find that some 19th century antiquarian has done the research - though whether they got it right is another matter!

So your next port of call is the manorial documents. If you search on this part of the TNA site you'find where those documents that survive can be found: http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/manor-search  They are in four places: TNA, Staffordshire Archives, Suffolk Archives, and Essex Archives. It's likely that nothing is online, and also that the records will be in Latin.

Best of luck!

Visitations of Suffolk 1561, 1577, 1612 These were like a "Who's Who" of nobility and gentry in a county. An internet search should bring up a searchable copy. Another internet search for Heralds' Visitations should find an explanation.

Haughley House . A very brief history. Belonged to Mary Tudor in 1554. Would that be the Mary Tudor who became Queen Mary? https://www.haughleyhouse.co.uk/history/

This is of interest. It's from just a shade later than the dates you're interested in:
https://www.academia.edu/5928539/By_Metes_and_Boundes_rediscovering_the_Survey_of_the_Manor_of_Haughley_c_1554_Updated_edition_2014_

The more I read of this the less I believe that this gentleman was nobility; gentry instead as lord of the manor.

Can you please tell us what lines of evidence connect you this far back in history?
