The origins of the Blaghal name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived in the village of Blackall in Devon, or one of numerous other minor locations of the same name. The place-name is derived from black hall, which indicated a manor, which was dark in color or in a dark area.

Blaghal Early Origins



The surname Blaghal was first found in Devon, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066.

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Blaghal family emigrate to North America: Agnes Blackhall, aged 26; who settled in New York in 1774.
