New. Thanks to Helena of Marston on Dove parish for sending the following family research July 2014

"Elizabeth Bladon married Arthur Shirley in 1690 at Marston Upon Dove. They had one child John who was ordained and later became Vicar of nearby Cubley. He died young (I have his will) and his wife Elizabeth a few years later (I also have her will and Arthur his fathers and half brother Arthur). After Elizabeth died, the 6 surviving children appear to live with Elizabeth’s sister and her family Rev Thomas Wright of Kedleston. I have discovered what happened to 3 of the children but not others."
