Blundell, Henry (1724 -1810)

Henry Blundell, of Ince Blundell in Lancashire, was the son of Robert Blundell and Katherine, daughter of Sir Rowland Stanley, Baronet, of Hooton in Cheshire. A Roman Catholic, he succeeded his father in 1760. His collection of classical art and antiquities was large rather than select. He married Elizabeth, third daughter of Sir George Mostyn, 4th Bart of Talacre and had a son, Charles Robert, and two daughters. Owing to an estrangement between him and his son, who never married, the larger estates were devised to the daughters and only Ince Blundell descended to the son who left it to a younger son of the Welds of Lulworth Castle, Dorset, a kinsman on his mother's side, who took the name of Weld Blundell after the son's death on 27 October 1837.
