Blodget Early Origins



The surname Blodget was first found in Shropshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held estates in that shire. The surnames Bladwell, Blodwell, and Blodget are believed to be derived from the Welsh surname Lloyd which settled in this border county in the 12th and 12th centuries.

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Blodget family emigrate to North America: Albro Blodgett, aged 43, who arrived at Ellis Island, in 1908; Annie G. Blodgett, aged 47, who arrived at Ellis Island, in 1910; Basil Blodgett, aged 30, who arrived at Ellis Island, in 1924.
