Blazer History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms




Early Origins of the Blazer family


The surname Blazer 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.

"David Blaize" is a novel of school life by English author Edward Frederic Benson OBE. Published in 1916, it was quickly followed up by a second, entitled "David Blaize and the Blue Door" in 1918. The final novel of the trilogy was "David of King's" in 1924, but as to why the author chose the surname "Blaise" for the character for these novels remains a mystery.

Blazer Spelling Variations


Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Blazer family name include Blaise, Blaize, Blaze, Blasey, Blease, Bleas, Blase, Blays, Blayze, Blazey, Blazer and many more.

Migration of the Blazer family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Blazer family to immigrate North America:
