Origins Available: English, French


The earliest origins of the family name Blache date back to the Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It was a name given to a person associated with the color black. The name Blache may have referred to someone with black hair or clothing, or to somone who worked in a profession such as chimney sweeping, which left its practitioners covered in soot.

Blache Early Origins



The surname Blache was first found in Lincolnshire 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. It is said that the first family of Black were converted to Christianity by Paulinus, the head of the family being Prefect of Lincoln, about 628. They moved northward, however, and were well established in Scotland by 1175 A.D.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Abraham Black, who settled in Virginia in 1713; Albert Black, who arrived in Maryland in 1673; Bridg Black, who settled in Virginia in 1662; Christian Black, who settled in Wilmington, NC in 1775.
