Blasey Early Origins



The surname Blasey was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Norman influence of English history strongly penetrated English society after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. The family name was first referenced in the 11th century in Yorkshire when they held estates in that shire. Robert Blaise succeeded in 1272. They are believed to be originally from Blay, 3 miles north east of Le Molay in Calvados. The name may have been associated with a 4th century (316) French saint Blasius of Armenie(Armienes,) and later introduced into and adopted by Yorkshire people as their saint of wool-combers from a Norman noble.

The Great Migration



The unstable environment in England at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland, Australia, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Blasey arrived in North America very early: Albert Edward Blase, aged 16, who arrived at Ellis Island, in 1917; Amalie Blase, aged 32, who arrived at Ellis Island, in 1908; and Bishop Blase, aged 26, who arrived at Ellis Island from Liverpool, England, in 1911..
