An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


In the Middle Ages, Viking immigrants settled the shores of Scotland and named many places. The Blenckoe name was then created from one of these place names. They lived in the counties of the Scottish/English Borderlands.

Blenckoe Early Origins



The surname Blenckoe was first found in Cumberland, where they held a family seat for many centuries, before the Norman Conquest of England by Duke William of Normandy in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



In their new home, Scots found land and opportunity, and some even fought for their new freedom in the American War of Independence. Some, who remained loyal to the crown went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. In this century, the ancestors of both of these groups have begun recovering their illustrious national heritage through Clan societies and other Scottish historical organizations. Early immigration and passenger lists indicate many people bearing the Blenckoe name: D. Blanco who arrived in New Orleans in 1823; Richard Blencowe arrived in New York in 1830; Richard Blencowe settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1774; and many more..

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Quorsum vivere mori
Motto Translation: Wherefore live to die.
