The proud Norman name of Blanchfl was developed in England soon after Norman Conquest of England in 1066. It was name for a man with a pale appearance. This nickname derives from the Old French blanch, meaning white or pale, and fleur, meaning flower.

Blanchfl Early Origins



The surname Blanchfl was first found in Somerset where they held a family seat as Lords of the manor of Kingston, and conjecturally the family is descended from Hubert de St. Clar who held his lands from the Count of Mortaine at the time of the taking of the Domesday Book Survey in 1086 A.D.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. For such families, the shores of Ireland, Australia, and the New World beckoned. They left their homeland at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. Many arrived after the long voyage sick, starving, and without a penny. But even those were greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. Numerous English settlers who arrived in the United States and Canada at this time went on to make important contributions to the developing cultures of those countries. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Blanchfl were among those contributors: Elizabeth Blanchflower who settled in Barbados in 1678.
