This page is still being researched. It has NOT yet been launched formally into the Database but is shown here TEMPORARILY (albeit for an uncertain length of time pending further research), partly to record connections that we fear we might otherwise lose sight of and partly in the hope that one or more visitors to the site will contribute information that will enable us to develop our information on the families covered in this page to a standard that would support release of a dedicated page in the Database.

James Blancks of Bledlow, Buckinghamshire (a/d 1663)
m. Elizabeth
1. John Blancks (a 1670)
  Lipscomb shows a connection from John to his apparent son Johnshall Crosse but, as Johnshall's wife is shown as "Elizabeth, sole daur. and heir.", we presume that the connection should have been shown to her. That is more consistent with the text which implies that the Crosses were of a different family to the Blancks.
