It is supposed that the Blasdell surnames is habitational, deriving from the name of the village of Bleasdale in Lancashire, England.

Blasdell Early Origins



The surname Blasdell was first found in Lancashire 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 year 1550 when John Bleasdale held estates in Lancashire. The name is believed to be descended from St.Blaise, patron saint of wool combers. The addition of the 'dale' or 'dell' is possessive and typical of many Cheshire, Lancashire and Cumberland family names.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Blasdell or a variant listed above: Moses Blaisdell, who landed in Nova Scotia in 1775; Ralph Blaisdell, who arrived in Maine in 1635; and Miss M F Blaisdell, who arrived in San Francisco, Cal in 1860..
