The many generations and branches of the Bloore family can all place the origins of their surname with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name reveals that an early member worked as a blower, or one who plays the horn.

Bloore Early Origins



The surname Bloore was first found in Staffordshire at Blore Heath, a sparsely populated area of farmland best known as the site of the first major battle in the English Wars of the Roses fought on 23 September 1459.

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 Bloore family emigrate to North America: the farmer of the name Bloor who settled in York in Upper Canada, from him came the name Bloor Street, one of the longest and most important streets in Toronto. This caused almost a chain reaction of streets in other cities of Canada to be also named Bloor. James Bloor landed in America in 1762.
