The ancestors of the Blamoore surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they lived in the village of Blamire, in the West Riding of the county of Yorkshire. The name literally means the black mire, and is derived from the old Norse elements Blar, which means dark, and Myrr, which means swamp or marsh. Thus, the surname reveals that the original bearer lived in a settlement named for being located near a dark swamp.

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: Stephen Blammire, who arrived in America in 1764.
