Blanchfielt Early Origins



The surname Blanchfielt was first found in Devon where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held estates in Devon.

Blanchfielt Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Blanchfielt include Blanchfield, Blanchfeild, Blankfield, Blanckfield, Blanchville and many more.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Blanchfielt were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: John Blanchfield, a bonded emigrant, who arrived in America in 1769; Stephen Blanchfield, who arrived in New York city in 1815; Thomas Blanchfield, who came to Philadelphia in 1834.
