Notes for EDWARD BLAKEMORE: Edward and his wife Frances both died and were buried on October 8, 1648. Curious, was it an illness? Were they killed? They left two children under the age of 13 years to be cared for, perhaps by their oldest brother, John.

The title of the other sermon that he printed was Christ His Last Will and John His Legacy. It was preached at Clare. It was printed in 1621 by Bernard Alsop for Edward Blackemore, and "are to be sold at his shop at the signe of the Blazing-Staire in Paules Church-yard". It was dedicated to Mistresse Borlace of Mednam in Bucks. In the dedicatory epistle he says he had intended to have written at length on Luke 23, "but so I am prevented throught a numberlesse number of businesses by "reason of my Sabbath day paines, my weeke day Lecture, teaching children, and other imployments, that I almost wonder at my selfe, or rather I admire God's goodnesse that hath enabled me and carried me through all these".
I thought the article was interesting in that the sermon was printed for Edward Blakemore to be sold at his shop "at the signe of the Blazing-Staire in Paules Church-yard". It appears that he wrote the dedication also; sounds like he was a very busy man! (Janice Moore)
