An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The origins of the Anglo-Saxon name Blatch come from its first bearer, who was a person associated with the color black. The name Blatch may have referred to someone with black hair or clothing, or to somone who worked in a profession such as chimney sweeping, which left its practitioners covered in soot.

Blatch Early Origins



The surname Blatch was first found in Lincolnshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D. It is said that the first family of Black were converted to Christianity by Paulinus, the head of the family being Prefect of Lincoln, about 628. They moved northward, however, and were well established in Scotland by 1175 A.D.
