Hello folks - I am not really into genealogy myself but I am glad to help those who are - re: Arblaster. I have a family tree (researched by a great uncle of means in London - he died 1930) titled "Pedigree of the Arblaster Family" and it begins with Gilbert de Liswis in the reign of Henry I (1100 to 1135)and incorporates the Arblaster name with the marriage of James Arblaster of Longdon to Margaret Lagydd (descendant of de Liswis) in 1375. Further, I have the Arblasters prior to James back as far as Henry III (1216-1272) on this tree starting with William. The line continues in an unbroken chain to a Cadman who married Eliza Arblaster (died 1867)and on down to myself. Anyone interested? Places cited include Staffordshire, Shropshire, Shrewsbury, Over Stonall (Edward sold family seat of Liswys including hall in 1769), Penbridge, Cropston, Leonard Worthim, etc. Also, I have notes about the family describing various times. I would be glad to offer my help by sharing this info. Please include your e-mail address and I will get back to you. Cheers, Rob.
