Blaydes History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
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.
