Biographical Note

Nephew of Sir Walter Kirkham Blount of Sodington, Worcestershire, 3rd bart, from whom he inherited the title and family estates in 1717.


Blount used an engraved armorial bookplate, made after he had succeeded to the baronetcy (Franks 2877). The extent of his library is not known; his will has no mention of books, and the estate and title passed to his son Edward, 5th bart.
