Early Origins of the Borlasay family
The surname Borlasay was first found in Cornwall
where they held a family seat
as Lords of the Manor of Borlase. Cornwall
was a land set apart, a land of mystique and quaint customs, more strongly related to Brittany
than to England
. It was not until the 10th century that they submitted to the Saxon rule of England. Since then, their influence has moved east into Devon
. Some say that the first settlers was a man from Bordeaux who settled at Borlase.
