About Prideaux Blackiston

Prideaux Blakiston was born in 1696, and gives his age as 39 years in a deposition made in 1735 (Kent Co. Records). 6 August 1720 he rendered an account as administrator of the estate of his brother John Blakiston, Jun. (Accounts, Lib. 3, fol. 62), his name being erroneously written in the record “Prederick” instead of Prideaux. He married, 27 July 1729 (St. Paul’s, Kent Co.), Martha, widow of William Dunn and daughter of Michael Miller, and with his wife rendered an account of her former husband, William Dunn’s estate in 1732 (Accounts, Lib. 11, fol. 596). Prideaux Blakiston had a son of the same name, as appears by a deed, dated 25 Jan. 1775, whereby Prideaux Blakiston of Kent County conveys to John Page of the same county, 44 acres, part of Boxley, “devised by my grandfather, John Blakiston to my father, Prideaux Blakiston” (Kent Co., Lib. DD., No. 5, fol. 17).
