* The Eugene W. Blood Family Home Page*

Updated December 2, 2009

The BLOOD family came to Philadelphia by way of Ruddington, a small town. South of the Market City of Nottingham in Nottinghamshire. The earliest record I have is 1742 in the town of Nottingham. It was in Ruddington in 1835 that Robert Blood (1813) would marry a Elizabeth Bronson (Branson)(1817). And in 1838 George Blood (1817) his brother would marry a Sarah Branson (1821) sister to Elizabeth. Robert and George's father was a John Blood (1777) and Sarah and Elizabeth's father was John Branston (1788) all the males were FWK's Frame Work Knitters in Ruddington.
On 24 May 1864, the packet ship Tuscarora docked in Philadelphia and it carried Sarah the wife of George(1817) and their children. Enoch (1839) son to George also had his wife Emma (Belton) with him also William Gee and Emma Gee(Blood)
They came into Philadelphia because George Blood (1817) had come over before and was with a Thomas Branson (1818) who was brother to Sarah and Elizabeth. Thomas Branson along with his wife Sarah Spittlehouse had started a mill.
