INDEX

[21845] The Bliss family seems to be descended from the Norman family of Blois,gradually modified to Bloys, Blyse, Blysse, Blisse, and in Americafinally to Bliss, dated back to the time of the Norman Conquest. The nameis not common in England. The coat-of-arms borne by the Bliss and Bloysfamilies is the same: Sable, a bend vaire, between two fleur-de-lis or.Crest: A hand holding a bundle of arrows. Motto: Semper sursum. Theancient traditions of the Bliss family represent them as living in thesouth of England and belonging to the class known as English yeomanry orfarmers, though at various times some of the family were knights orgentry. They owned the houses and lands they occupied, were free-holdersand entitled to vote for members of parliament. In the early days, ofcourse, they were faithful Roman Catholics, but later after England hadbecome Protestant they became Puritans and became involved in thecontentions between Charles I. and Parliament.

(I) Thomas Bliss, the progenitor, lived in Belstone parish, Devonshire,England. Very little is known of him except that he was a wealthylandowner, that he belonged to the class stigmatized as Puritans onaccount of the purity and simplicity of their forms of worships, that hewas persecuted by the civil and religious authorities under the directionof Archbishop Laud, and that he was maltreated, impoverished andimprisoned and finally ruined in health, as well as financially, by themany indignities and hardships forced on him by the intolerant churchparty in power.

He is supposed to have been born about 1550 or 1560. The date of hisdeath was 1635 or about that year. When the parliament of 1628 assembled,Puritans or Roundheads, as the Cavaliers called them, accompanied themembers to London. Two of the sons of Thomas Bliss, Jonathan and Thomas,rode from Devonshire on iron grey horses, and remained for some time inthe city--long enough at least for the king's officers and spies to learntheir names and condition, and whence they came; and from that time forthwith others who had gone to London on the same errand, they were markedfor destruction. They were soon fined a thousand pounds fornon-conformity and thrown into prison, where they remained many weeks.Even old Mr. Thomas Bliss, their father, was dragged through the streetswith the greatest indignity. On another occasion the officers of the highcommission seized all their horses and sheep, except one poor ewe that inits fright ran into the house and took refuge under a bed. At anothertime the three brothers, with twelve other Puritans, were led through themarketplace in Okehampton with ropes around their necks, and finedheavily, and Jonathan and his father were thrown into prison, where thesufferings of the son eventually caused his death. At another time theking's officers seized the cattle of the Bliss family and most of theirhousehold goods, some of the articles of furniture being highly valuedfor their beauty and age, since they had been in the family forcenturies. In fact, the family was so reduced in circumstances that itwas unable to secure the release of both Jonathan and his father, so theyounger man had to remain in prison and at Exeter he suffered thirty-fivelashes with a three-corded whip, which tore his back in a cruel manner.Before Jonathan was released the estate had to be sold. The father andmother went to live with their daughter who had married a man of theEstablished Church, Sir John Calcliffe. The remnant of the estate wasdivided among the three sons who were advised to go to America where theymight escape persecution. Thomas and George feared to wait for Jonathanwho was still very ill and they left England in the fall of 1635 withtheir families. Thomas, son of Jonathan and grandson of Thomas (1),remained with his father who finally died, and the son then came to joinhis uncles and settled near Thomas. At various times their sister sentfrom Engl
