Bookplate belonging to Catherine Blaikley

A bookplate in a copy of the Book of Common Prayer notes the owner of the book as Catharine Blaikley of Williamsburg, Virginia. The bookplate dates to 1770. This book probably belonged to Catherine Kaidyee Blaikley, the midwife who, during the mid-eighteenth century in Virginia, purportedly delivered as many as three thousand babies.
