Francis Blunt was born 1779 in Moulton, Northamptonshire, England, United Kingdom to John Blunt (1752-) and Mary unknown (c1758-1830) and died 28 November 1857 in Union Workhouse, Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, England, United Kingdom of unspecified causes. He married Jane Ellis (1789-1845) 14 October 1805 in All Hallows Church, Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, England, United Kingdom. Ancestors are from the United Kingdom.


1821: Disturbing Congregation

Northampton Mercury, 14 April 1821:

Francis Blunt, of Wellingborough, labourer, was taken before the Magistrates, for attempting, by several times crying fire, to disturb a congregation assembled at West End Chapel, at that place, to hear the Rev. Rowland Hill, of London.

1834: Barley Theft

The Mercury. Francis Blunt of Wellingborough committed to our County Gaol:


The original record shows Midsummer 1834, and the sentence as 12 months imprisonment.


Parish records show Francis as the son of John and Mary Blunt. A submitted IGI tree shows John as being christened in 1752 to Thomas and Anne Blunt. I don't know how they connected Francis to this John without a doubt, as there is another John who was christened in Moulton in 1756 to Francis and Anne Blunt.

There is a burial in Moulton for Mary Blunt (1758-1830) which would be Francis' mother. There is also a burial in Moulton in 1826 for Thomas Blunt, 69, which would be the one christened in 1756 but is this the father of Francis?

Thomas and Francis Sr. appear to be brothers anyway.
