From Wikipedia
Bertram II's grandson was Bertram III de Verdun, one of the familiares of king Henry II. His parents are Norman de Verdun, son of Bertram II, and Lesceline de Clinton, daughter of Geoffrey de Clinton, chamberlain of king Henry I. Bertram would, in the course of his life, hold very high office. He married Maud the daughter of Robert de Ferrers 2nd Earl of Derby. Maud was a minor and it is unlikely that the marriage was ever consummated; in any event she died young without children. Soon after, Bertram married Rohese de Salford who gave her husband eight children.

136 3rd son. Settled at Kapunda, South Australia. 9 children Arrived on the "Success" Was a medical practitioner in Corofin.

Notes from Jane Fekete: When they married in March 1833 (in Corofin Church, with the service performed by the Rev. James Hastings Allen, Dean of Killaloe), he was 26 years and she was not quite 17 years old. He had qualified as a doctor two years earlier, and they lived first at Croissard (or Crossard) Cottage, near Corofin, until 1838 at least, and later at Springfield near Corofin. I presume Springfield is the name of a house.

In 1840 he was admitted as a member of the Medical Association of Ireland, "For protecting the interests, preserving the respectability & increasing the usefulness of the Medical Profession, Matthew H. Blood, Esq., Corofin, admitted a Member 5 March 1840. [Signed] H. Maunsell (?), Secretary, J. MacDonnell, Treasurer." It is known that Dr Blood worked in the Cholera Hospital in Ennis, County Clare.

They sailed from Plymouth on 29 September 1847 on the Success, an emigrant ship of 621 tons, bound for South Australia with 244 emigrants on board. The ship's master was C. Ablett, and Dr Blood was the ship's Surgeon superintendent. We do not know for certain why the Doctor decided to leave Ireland, although we can assume that the potato famine had a lot to do with it, and we do not know for certain why he chose to go to South Australia, but it is probable that he was invited by "Captain" Charles Hervey Bagot, one of the owners of the Kapunda Mine in South Australia, to go to Kapunda as Mine Doctor. Bagot is said to have "appointed" Dr Blood as Mine Doctor, though I have not been able to determine whether this happened when Dr Blood arrived in South Australia or whether the position was offered to him while he was still in Ireland. The latter seems more likely, but I do not know of any documentary evidence. It is understood that both Captain Bagot and William Oldham, the Mine manager, had known Dr Blood or his family before leaving Ireland and settling in South Australia.

On Thursday, 27 January 1848, after a voyage of almost exactly four months, the ship sailed up St. Vincent's Gulf and dropped anchor in Port Adelaide. I have not been able to find out precisely when Dr. Blood went to Kapunda. He may have taken his family there straight away, but according to an article written in 1862 when he left Kapunda (Chronicle Friday 22 March 1862, p. 3c): "The Doctor and his family ... after remaining a few months in Adelaide, proceeded to Kapunda where Dr Blood until recently held the appointment of surgeon to the mine." This is supported by the obituary for Dr. Blood published in the Kapunda herald (30 March 1883): "Dr Blood had arrived in the colony early in 1848, and a few months later came to Kapunda where he resided in the Mine Square..."

Dr Blood attended a levee in Adelaide in honour of the Queen's birthday late in May. "At 1 o'clock a.m. the Lieutenant-Governor held the accustomed levee in honour of her Majesty ... The following gentlemen attended the levee ... Rev. J.B. Austin, ...M.H.S. Blood, M.D., ... Francis S. Dutton, Fred H. Dutton ..."

On Tuesday, 28 April 1856, at 3 p.m., Dr Blood laid the foundation stone of Christ Church, Kapunda. He had previously allowed services (and marriages, including that of his daughter Dorothea) to be held in his home, and was involved with the plans for a new church. Mrs. Blood was to have laid the foundation stone but was ill and Dr Blood performed the ceremony.

Dr. Blood sold some land to the Catholic Church for its church, St Rose's, and the convent. "A suitable piece of land ... was eventually secured from Dr. Blood... On this site was a large stable, and towards the end of that year (1860) the congregation was transferred from [Hogan's] forge to the stable" (St Rose's Church Kapunda golden jubilee 1988, p. 4) This was just up the hill from their house, north-east.

The Northern star, 24 March 1860, p. 3, reported on a dinner held for Messrs Bagot and Dutton:
"[A dinner was held] at the Sir John Franklin Hotel to celebrate the return of these gentlemen as members for the Light. ... The Stipendiary Magistrate, Mr. Browne, occupied the chair, supported on his right and left by Messrs. Bagot and Dutton, Mr. Oldham and Dr. Blood. The vice-chair was occupied by Mr. Kelly, supported by Messrs. Buchanan and Lucas."

The Lodge of Light, No. 410 I.C. was founded 14 September 1860, with Dr Blood as a Foundation member and first Master, a position he held until he left Kapunda in March 1862.

According to Charlton, the Kapunda Volunteers were formed in 1860 (an early version of the Citizens Military Force), with Dr Blood as their surgeon.

On 4 January 1861 Matthew Henry Smyth Blood, the Doctor's eldest son, was admitted to Lodge 410, Kapunda, of the Grand Lodge of Ireland. (He had his certificate endorsed when he was in Ireland in 1871.)
According to Rob Charlton in his History of Kapunda, p. 101, "Dr. Blood held the post of Medical Officer at the mine until 1860 when it was discontinued." In the Supplement to the South Australian weekly chronicle, 22 March 1862, p. 1g, the Kapunda correspondent reported: "Dr. Tallis has succeeded Dr. Blood as surgeon at the mine." This indicates that Dr Blood had still been surgeon at the mine till that time, although perhaps there were two separate positions, one as Medical Officer and one as Surgeon. The date of his departure from the mine is of interest because he was given a copper walking stick when he left the mine, and there would probably have been a ceremony which might have been worthy of being reported in the press. Certainly by 1862 Kapunda and its mines were in some economic decline.

In March, Dr Blood left Kapunda with his family and went to Cadiangullong, where both William and the Christoes were living. On Wednesday the 5th March, his friends in Kapunda gave him a complimentary dinner at the Sir John Franklin Hotel, where he was presented with a silver snuff-box "as a testimonial of respect by the residents of Light" and an address from the Masonic Lodge of Light (the full text of the Chronicle's report of this occasion can be found at the end of this section). The Northern star 8 March, p. 2e-f also reported on the dinner. On 10 March he was among those presented to Governor Sir Dominic Daly at a levee at Government House. He sailed on the Claramont on Monday, March 15, bound for Sydney. He was accompanied by Mrs Blood, Dorothea and her family, Susan, Frederica, Elizabeth, Mary and either John or Matthew, probably the latter, as we know that in 1865 he had friends in Sydney, the Burnside family. (Marianne was married to W.T. Salter and had two children to bring up, and presumably stayed with her husband at Manoora and Baroota.) The Northern star of 22 March 1862, p. 2b, reported: "Dr. Blood and his family sailed for Sydney on Monday last in the ship Claramont. He was accompanied by two or three experienced men from the Kapunda Mine. At least, we are so informed. "

From Sydney they went to Cadiangullong where he actually purchased land and presumably took up practice as a doctor, but obviously the venture was not a success, as the Doctor and his family returned to Kapunda in August 1863. On his return from NSW, Dr Blood took up general practice in the town, residing and practising in a house in Mildred Street.

In the same year, Kapunda was declared a Corporate Town, and Dr Blood was appointed Mayor. F.S. Dutton and P.B. Coglin, the two Parliamentary members for Light, sent from Adelaide to Dr. Blood a telegram of congratulation, dated 13 July 1865 and timed at 4.45. "The two Members for Light take the earliest opportunity of congratulating His Worship the Mayor and Councillors of the City of Kapunda on the Corporation being gazetted. The Members for Light hope that Kapunda will now soon become an ornament to the colony as the second city in importance. Finis Coronal opus. God save the Queen. Sig. F.s. Dutton, P.B. Coglin."

He was Mayor for two years, his term finishing late in 1867, just after the visit to the town on 6 November 1867 by the Duke of Edinburgh. Dr Blood played host to the Duke at a dinner held in his honor in the town hall. The Duke's visit was described in The cruise of H.M.S. Galatea: "His Royal Highness started soon after ten o'clock by special train. About noon the train reached Kapunda, forty-seven miles from Adelaide, where His Royal Highness was met by a deputation, consisting of the Mayor and Corporation, with the clergy and magistrates of the northern district. A guard of honour of the Kapunda Volunteer Rifles was drawn up on the platform ... After luncheon, the Prince returned to the station, and started soon after two o'clock for Gawler." The visit is reported also in the Kapunda herald of 8 November 1867, p. 3c-d and 2d. Also in "The cruise of H.M.S. Galatea" can be found a list of officers of the ship including, as Commander, Hugh Campbell. There is an autographed photo of Campbell, as well a couple of photographs of the Duke, in Dr Blood's album. 
Smyth-Blood, Dr. Matthew Henry (I34)
137 3rd son; William had already settled in Ireland when Dugdale took this survey 29 Aug 1665. Accordingly & incorrectly he omitted William, and he listed Ralph as the 3rd son and Francis as the 4th son, when in fact they were 4th and 5th respectively.

Came to Ireland from Rossdale Abbey, Yorkshire, England about 1630.
His older brother John was born in 1612, so William had to have been born in late 1613 after brother James' birth earlier in the same year. Since William's wife had 5 children before her death about 1629, William must have married her at the young age of 13, not unusual for the period. Burke states that she died before 1630. Having a child every 9 months, it is possible that she did have 5 children between 1626 and 1630, one right after the other. Some may have been short term children, thus increasing the odds.

Burke states that after his wife's death, William with most of his children settled first at Dundrum, Co. Down, Ireland 'but later moved to Lisburn, Co. Antrim'...

147 5th Baron Verdon (by tenure)

The connection of Nicholas to the de Verdun ancestors shown here comes from:

Wikipedia's entry for Nicholas' son-in-law (,_2nd_Chief_Butler_of_Ireland) says "Rohese de Verdon, daughter of Nicholas de Verdon of Alton, Staffordshire and Joan de Lacy, and the widow of William Perceval de Somery." shows a Nicholas de Verdun of Alton, as the son of Bertram III. This arricle says "... Bertram was in 1169 given the dual shrievalty of Warwickshire and Leicestershire in Basset's place. Four years later he rebuilt in stone his house at Alton, which had, up to that time, been little more than a wooden hall..."

I find the years for the generations Bertram I to Nicholas to be a stretch; however the article for Godfrey I, Bertram I's father, says of Bertram: ", grand-uncle of the Bertram I who went to England where he held the manor of Farnham Royal in Buckinghamshire." This also does not make absolute sense, but it is possible that there is a generation missing in the lineage, which would make the life spans of the three Bertrams, and Norman, son of Bertram II and father of Bertram III, more usual.
