The name Blayne comes from the Scottish/English Borderlands and the ancient Boernicians who inhabited them. It is derived from the Gaelic personal name Bleen, which means yellow. It was also the name of an early Celtic saint.

Blayne Early Origins



The surname Blayne was first found in Ayrshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Inbhir Àir), formerly a county in the southwestern Strathclyde region of Scotland, that today makes up the Council Areas of South, East, and North Ayrshire, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



When these Boernician-Scottish settlers arrived in North America they brought little with them and often had restart their lives from scratch. Through time, much of their heritage was lost, and it is only this century through Clan societies and highland games that many have recovered their national heritage. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Blayne family to immigrate North America: James Blaine who settled in Pennsylvania in 1740; Eliza Blain who settled in New York in 1774; Peter Blain settled in Philadelphia in 1805; John Blain settled in New Orleans in 1820.

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Paritur pax bello
Motto Translation: Peace is obtained by war.
