There are certain records that are considered dependable. Among these are: wills and estate settlements, sworn testimony in court, statements like "To my son" in a deed, sworn ship lists as "Samuel Smith and wife Elizabeth", pension applications before a notary public, copies of vital records.
But certain printed books are considered non-dependable. Often the author stated wild guesses as facts. Statements in such books should be proved before being accepted. Often a printed statement in such a book has been copied
and reprinted again and again, even when not true. And often such mistakes are corrected in later books.
Some recent authors and researchers are completely dependable, for in doubtful cases they use such words as 'probably', 'perhaps', 'possibly'.
Richard Blood (the father on this sheet) has been sealed to James Blood (see archive record) as his son. Richard gave his age in court and James gave his. James
was eleven when Richard was born. When James died his son James inherited all his property. (Not the James on this sheet)
In his will, Henry Wilkinson, town skinner of Nottingham, England, bequeathed to "my cousin Isabel Blood of New England three Pounds." (Will made 25 Nov 1642, probated27 Mar 1646. Reference: "Waters Gleanings.") Some have accept-ed this as proof that her name was Wilkinson. However the children of sisters are first cousins with no common name between them because the mothers both changed their names when they married. Thus there is only 1 chance in 4 that Isabel's name is Wilkinson. Does anyone have additional proof?
