Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Blakehale is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having 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.

Blakehale Early Origins



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

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Blakehales to arrive in North America: Agnes Blackhall, aged 26; who settled in New York in 1774.
