An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The name Blatherwayt was first used by the ancient Strathclyde-Briton people of the Scottish/English Borderlands. The first Blatherwayt to use this name no doubt lived in any of the places so named in Cumberland or Yorkshire. This place-name derived from the Old Norse words for a broad clearing.

Blatherwayt Early Origins



The surname Blatherwayt was first found in Cumberland, 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.

The Great Migration



The number of Strathclyde Clan families sailing for North America increased steadily as the persecution continued. In the colonies, they could find not only freedom from the iron hand of the English government, but land to settle on. The American War of Independence allowed many of these settlers to prove their independence, while some chose to go to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Scots played essential roles in the forging of both great nations. Among them: William Braithwaite who settled in Maryland in 1775; Susan Braithwaite with her husband Francis arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with four children in 1822.
