Blaydes History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

The Anglo-Saxon name Blaydes comes from when the family resided in Yorkshire, where they settled in a place called Blades, which is now lost. Many of the place-names that yield surnames are of small communities, villages and hamlets and some of these no longer exist. The family claim descent from Drago de Bewere, a Danish nobleman who settled at a place called Blades in north England around 1016. He obtained extensive land grants which were recorded in the Domesday Book Survey of 1086. The variant Burseblades emerged through a compounding of the names of the founder and the estate.

Blaydes migration to the United States

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 Blaydes or a variant listed above:
