Thomas Bland (b.ca.1624; d.ca.1667). Citizen and scrivener.
Resident in parish of Saint Stephen Coleman Street in 1656.
The will of Thomas Bland, scrivener of London, was proved on December 14th 1667.
Rupert Taylor (1981) suggests that a thirty-six year old widow Mary Bland, resident in the parish of Saint Peter the Poor in 1638, who married Luke Cropley, a thirty-five year olf gentleman of Saint Peter the Poor, may have been the widow of the scivener Thomas Bland.
Evidence from High Court of Admiralty
Thirty-two year old Thomas Bland deposed on March 10th 1656 in the High Court of Admiralty. He was examined on an allegation on behalf of Travers in the case of "Travers against Burridge and Spicer".
Bland testified that a specific charterparty had been signed sealed and delivered by William Webber to Travers in the presence of Bland and Bland's servant, Thomas Nicholls.
