Blaizer Early Origins



The surname Blaizer was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Norman influence of English history strongly penetrated English society after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. The family name was first referenced in the 11th century in Yorkshire when they held estates in that shire. Robert Blaise succeeded in 1272. They are believed to be originally from Blay, 3 miles north east of Le Molay in Calvados. The name may have been associated with a 4th century (316) French saint Blasius of Armenie(Armienes,) and later introduced into and adopted by Yorkshire people as their saint of wool-combers from a Norman noble.

Blaizer Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Blaizer has been recorded under many different variations, including Blaise, Blaize, Blaze, Blasey, Blease, Bleas, Blase, Blays, Blayze, Blazey, Blazer and many more.

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Blaizers were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: Albert Edward Blase, aged 16, who arrived at Ellis Island, in 1917; Amalie Blase, aged 32, who arrived at Ellis Island, in 1908; and Bishop Blase, aged 26, who arrived at Ellis Island from Liverpool, England, in 1911..
