(1) BIFR1976 reports that the family shown in the lower section of this page is "said to be a cadet of the Blands of Kippax (who settled in Ireland ca 1670)". In fact, the arms of both of the families shown on this page suggest that it is likely that both were cadets of the family of Kippax (which is shown on Bland1).
