The Blanx family has descended through the lines of the ancient Normans that came to England following their Conquest of England in 1066. The Blanx name reveals that an early member was a person who was fair haired or pale or white of complexion. The name stems from the Old French word blanc, which means white.

Blanx Early Origins



The surname Blanx was first found in Northamptonshire at Peterborough Castle where Blanche of England, LG (13921409), also known as Blanche of Lancaster, was an English princess of the House of Lancaster. She was the sixth of the seven children born during the marriage of Prince Henry of Lancaster and his wife. Her brother, Henry of Monmouth would later become King Henry V of England.

Blanx Spelling Variations



Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Blanx family name include Blanch, Blanche, Blanck, Blank, Blance, Blanx and others.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Blanx family to immigrate North America: Elizabeth Blanche settled in Virginia in 1635; John Blanche settled in Virginia in 1663; Peter Blanch arrived in Philadelphia with his wife and three children in 1791.
