Bindon Blood's book says he served "in the English fleet in the second Dutch war of 1672-3, and afterwards as a cadet in the French Guards, when he studied the 'engineering art' under the famous Vauban. He was found so proficient on his return to England in 1688, that King James II appointed him Captain of the Pioneers in the Ordnance Train of a force which he raised to resist the invasion threatened by William of Orange.

After the Revolution, King William III placed Holcroft Blood on the establishment of the Engineers, and he served throughout the Irish wars of 1689-92, showing much ability, especially at the sieges of Athlone and Limerick, being consequently appointed a Captain in Foulke's regiment of Foot in 1692. This regiment was sent to the West Indies in December of the same year. But Captain Holcroft Blood was left behind, as he and his servant were arrested and put in jail at Winchester, while on their way to Portsmouth to embark, being accused of having robbed the Portsmouth coach a few days previously! They were set free in due course, having proved an alibi, but meanwhile their regiment had sailed.

Captain Blood was promoted to Major in Seymour's Regiment, afterwards the 24th Foot, in 1692; and to Lieut-Colonel in 1695 in Sir Matthew Bridges' Regiment of Foot, afterwards the 17th, as a reward for his distinguished services at the siege of Namur. When the War of the Spanish Succession broke out in 1702, he was given the command, as a Colonel, of the Ordnance Train which formed part of Marlborough's Army in the Low Countries. He personally commanded the Artillery on the field of Blenheim, when he distinguished himself greatly by covering Marlborough's final advance with nine field-pieces, with which he kept back the French infantry while Marlborough led his cavalry across a marsh in front of the village of Blenheim.

For this he was promoted to Brigadier-General on 25th August, 1704, twelve days after the battle, and thereafter he was frequently employed as a general officer in command of the 'three arms' with much success. Again at the battle of Ramilllies, in 1706, he commanded the Artillery; and also at the seige of Menin in the same year; receiving a special letter of untimely death, which occurred at Brussels on the 19th August 1707, he was Brigadier-General and also Colonel of the 17th Foot, with very good prospects of promotion had he survived," 
Blood, Brig.-Gen. Holcroft (I211)
 
230 Comte d'Auvergne https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_rulers_of_Auvergne d'Auvergne, Jeanne II Duchesse d'Auvergne (I115876)
 
231 Constance is in places shown as the daughter of Amadeo II of Savoy and Joanna of Geneva. However, as Amadeo II was born in or after 1046 (the year of marriage of his parents) and Constance's son William was born in about 1030, this is clearly impossible - this would make Amadeo's grandson at least 16 years older than he was. She may have been the daughter of Amadeo I. de Savoie, Constance "Marchesa del Monferrato" (I117271)
