At one time this house flourished in Livonia; now it does so in Poland. Among its members was Siferdus a Blomberch (that's how it used to be spelled), Riga archbishop circa 1400. Mikolaj was Piltyn starosta in 1686, and earlier Jan Blumberk stood for the election of Wladyslaw IV in Livonia. Jerzy was for Jan III. Neither Paprocki nor Okolski wrote about them.


Blumberk, commander of the Zamojski garrison, had two sons and a daughter who married Cybulski - Krasicki's note.
