I suspect that Robert Blakeney and Susannah Ormsby are actually the parents of a different John Blakeney.

This Robert Blakeney was, I believe MP for Athenry and married Susannah Blakeney who I believe died 29 Sep 1659.

Their son was not Captain but rather Major John Blakeney, who married Grace Persse, daughter of Henry Persse and Mary Stratford. The family is reported in Burke's Landed Gentry under "Blakeney of Abbert"

I hope that helps.
