Bleasington Early Origins



The surname Bleasington was first found in Lancashire at Pleasington, a village and civil parish in the Borough of Blackburn with Darwen that dates back to 1196 when it was listed as Plesigtuna and literally meant "estate associated with a man called Pleasa" from the Old English personal name + "ing" + "tun."

Another reference claims that it was listed in the Domesday Book, but we cannot collaborate this claim. As far as the surname is concerned, it was first referenced in the 13th century and are recorded in the Harleian Manuscripts in the British Museum 1139, folio 37b.
