August 2014

August 2014 has been a very busy month for me with very little transcription done of the Blake wills. As always it is a busy gardening time and we uprooted a crab apple tree that we have wanted to take out for a few years. It is always hard for me to remove a tree - they live a long time and in their lifetime see so very much. This tree doesn't have quite such a long history only 35 years but still it was sad watching it come down. Helping to be the remover of its being. I simply love trees. They are one of the many gifts God gave to us. We still have two large trees and they will prosper from the loss of this one using up the ground water. In all we have removed six trees over time from our property. Six trees that we actually put in. But now we have another three trees behind us which the City planted and they are spreading out and covering the end of our property (we back on a main road). Our yard is becoming quite dark by mid afternoon with all the tree cover around us on both sides so this one little crab apple tree will not be missed. I have made jelly and juice from the fruit of that crab apple tree and it was the sweetest crab apple product I ever tasted. The bees likely crossed the apple tree next door with the crab apple so that the fruit was just a little bigger and sweeter than it would have been.

But I digress. This next week will be my week to return to Cornwall trees and hopefully I will manage to get something up this time. It will take me a day or so to get back into momentum with this Blake line. My find yesterday in the Pipe Rolls makes my look back in Cornwall ever the more interesting because this too is an old Blake line. Are they all descendant of the le Blak family of Rouen, Normandy? Did they choose the name spontaneously because of the actual word Blak which has the meaning of fair from the French Gaelic or dark from the Old English. My own line was somewhat fair as my grandfather had grey/blue eyes and he used to comment that his sisters were fair haired and blue eyed. I am the only one of my siblings with a blue eye ring but my eyes would be called hazel rather than green or gray, there is some brown in my eyes.

My other grandfather also had grey eyes but the hair colouring was definitely quite dark. Learning lately from Britains DNA that the predominant eye colour in the British Isles is blue was something I didn't know before. Tempting to test my brother for blue eye colour and I may do that in a bit. Testing at two or three different companies is quite interesting (I have tested our yDNA at FT DNA, National Genographic and Britains DNA; our mtDNA at FT DNA, National Genographic, Britains DNA and Sorenson and our atDNA at FT DNA, National Genographic, Britains DNA and hopefully we will be able to test at Ancestry through my cousin. That is to come and I am quite excited as ancestry has a huge database. Once they open their testing to Canada I shall get my brother to test there as well. We have an amazing number of matches with people in the USA but only one ancestral line here in the Western Hempshere on our direct line - my mother, her father and his mother. I can on occasion be helpful to people looking for their ancestral location when they match me on particular lines where I have traced down all the children back in the 1700s.

Back to the New Brunswick 1921 census and I will complete that tomorrow. I want to then group the families into another couple of blogs and see what I have learned about the descendants of Captain John Blake. I then need to have a look at the OPRs for Scotland where this family is said to be ancestral to and investigate the couple of baptisms there in the right time frame. It would not be that unusual for descendants of the Blake family of Somerset to disappear into Scotland after the Glorious Restoration of King Charles II to the throne of England. They would certainly not have been very favoured given the role they played during the days of Cromwell.

This month has flown by quickly but the long dark days of winter will soon give me more time to work on my genealogy. I have promised to give a talk on one name studies after Christmas to the Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society. This will be the very last one as I really do not want to take the time to work on these talks. It is valuable time to my studies. But it is also nice to explain the idea of one name studies and it does encourage me to look at the larger picture of what I am doing and even make changes in my approach on occasion.

City of Ottawa Archives - BIFHSGO section

My husband had a meeting at the City of Ottawa Archives today so I tagged along to have a look at the BIFHSGO and OGS collections of British material.

I never noticed the Pipe Rolls for Hampshire in their library before so spent my entire time with those particular items and interestingly enough all the Pipe Rolls for Winchester Bishopric have been digitized at the Hampshire Record Office in Winchester from 1208 to 1710. If I ever get to Winchester I shall spend some time with that set of documents.

The Pipe Roll of the Bishopric of Winchester 1301 - 2 (Hampshire Record Series Volume 14) (ISBN: 1859751083 / 1-85975-108-3)

The Pipe Roll of the Bishopric of Winchester 1409-10
Mark Page (editor)
Published by Hampshire County Council, Winchester, first edition, "Hampshire Record" series, volume XVI, 1999
ISBN 10: 1859752845 / ISBN 13: 9781859752845

Both of these books are held by the BIFHSGO library at the City of Ottawa Archives.

There has been a little discussion on the origin of the Blake Surname recently with another member of the Guild. I have steered away from Niger as having been a possible earlier spelling of Blake and the Pipe Rolls for 1301-2 had a rather interesting entry at Wargrave. In the paragraph under Prequisities there is a Hamo Niger listed and a John Blak listed. Found it rather interesting and the Pipe Rolls gives the modern name for Niger as Black. I have pretty much thought that way from the time that I took this study up and this does help me along that path.

I am though starting to rethink my thought that Blake might be a characteristic surname. Not leaving it entirely but giving it more thought. In 1301 there were already seven different men with the Blak/le Blak surname listed in the Bishopric of Winchester Pipe Rolls. In 1274 there was a Richard le Blak at Rouen, Normandy requesting permission to set up a market in England. Alice la Blak is a daughter of Richard at Wargrave Berkshire. Is John a son of Richard? Is Laurence a son of Richard?  Is Hamo a son of Richard/brother of Richard? Walter is a son of Hamo. Is William a son of Richard?

However, we still do have the several different haplogroups for Blake in the yDNA study and they are quite different including several different I haplogroups and several different R haplogroups both R1a and R1b.

Place                                Surname    Forename       Date
Wargrave                        Blak          John              1301-2
Havant                             Blak         Laurence       1301-2
Wargrave                         Blak, la    Alice              1301-2  (daughter of Richard le Blak)
Wargrave                         Blak, le    Richard          1301-2
Merdon                            Blak, le    Thomas          1301-2
Waltham St Lawrence     Blak          Hamo             1301-2
Waltham St Lawrence     Blak          Walter            1301-2 (son of Hamo Blak)
Staplegrove                     Blake, le    William         1301-2


Bishops Sutton               Blake          Emma            1409-10
Holway                          Blake           John               1409-10
Soke                               Blake          William          1409-10

Wargrave is a hundred in Berkshire at this time period and includes the parishes of Waltham St Lawrence, Warfield and Wargrave. It is 35 miles NE of Andover just to place it into the context of the Blake family at Andover.

Havant is near Portsmouth and so 33 miles SE of Andover.

Merdon included the present parish of Hursley. Hursley is slightly south west of Winchester and 14 miles SSE of Andover.

Staplegrove remains somewhat of a mystery as one tends to think of Somersetshire with this village name.

Bishops Sutton is to the east of Winchester and 18 miles ESE of Andover.

Holway is again a Somersetshire name.

Soke is a mystery.

Nevertheless, exciting finding so many different Blak/le Blak/Blake names in 1301-2 in Hampshire.

Looking at the Calender of Patent Rolls in this time period:

1305 3 20 Westminster le Blake Henry Dorsetshire
1305 3 20 Westminster le Blak Robert Dorsetshire
1315 7 12 Westminster le Blake John Berkshire
1323 7 24 Faxfleet le Blak Simon Hampshire
1340 9 18 Andover le Blake John Berkshire
1340 9 18 Andover le Blake Roger Berkshire
1343 5 16 Westminster Blake Robert Hampshire
1352 11 26 Westminster la Blake Alice Hampshire
1352 11 26 Westminster le Blake Walter Hampshire
1352 11 26 Westminster le Blake Henry Hampshire
1355 11 12 Woodstock Blake Adam Wiltshire
1357 10 21 Westminster Blake Robert Wiltshire
1365 10 18 Westminster Blake Robert Wiltshire 
1386 1 28 Westminster Blake John Wiltshire
1386 2 12 Westminster Blake Robert Wiltshire
1389 9 15 Clarendon Manor Blake John Hampshire

1392 7 20 Windsor Blake Thomas Hampshire
1394 2 12 Westminster Blake John Hampshire
1402 10 13 Westminster Blake Andrew Hampshire
1405 5 22 Westminster Blake John Hampshire
1421 4 24 Westminster Blake John Hampshire
1452 6 16 Westminster Blake George Hampshire

The Blake Pedigree Chart at the Swindon and Wiltshire Record Office has the son of Richard Blague/Blaake as  Henry Blague / Blaake married to Elizabeth Dorrant (daughter of Edward Dorrant).  The only time frame at the beginning of the chart is the notation that events occurred during the reigns of Edward I and Edward II (1272-1307 and 1307-1327). The deeding of a property in Essex also mentioned took place in 1302. However it wasn't Richard Blague/Blaake who deeded that property it was Roger le Blake of Madebrook, Herefordshire. A small error in reality but it does leave one to wonder if Roger and Richard were related and the story simply went a bit astray through the years! There is a Roger Blake in Berkshire in 1340 mentioned in the Calendar of Patent Rolls.

I keep remembering that the Roman Legion could move from Devon to London in just over a day's forced march so what could a man on horseback do? The fields of England could be and likely were easily traversed on horseback.

Census 1891-1921 for Blake in New Brunswick


You might wonder why I am not consistent in the naming of these blogs for the Blake census in New Brunswick. A few years back my blog was put into a remedial state whilst it was checked to make sure it was a human running it. I had titles that were too similar so now I am careful to vary the title that I use for similar blogs! I couldn't access my blog for about one week. Mind you it is good to know that such tools are used against spam!

Today we are missing a barbeque were were going to attend because I can not hear. Normally I can but I want to have my hearing tested and hence I must have any wax removed from my ears and I didn't realize when I started to put the drops in that I would end up being almost stone deaf. It is gradually clearing but today I can still only hear if one talks loudly to me. I would be a loss at a party; not able to understand anything that was being said to me or to listen to anyone else talking in general. Hence, we gave our pardons for not attending. It was for the local DNA group so am sorry to miss it. We have missed so many meetings as life has just become too busy and complicated for us. Hardly a week goes by that we are not doing something and most often two or three things. Where did those quiet weeks go of a couple of years ago.

Blake families of New Brunswick, Canada

I am pulling Blake members out of the New Brunswick censuses from 1861 to 1921 and this blog post is 1861 to 1881. It will likely undergo a lot of moving around of the various entries as my main interest at this moment is the Captain John Blake line.  However, for future research I wanted to extract all Blake families. I know, my Blake line, that our line was relatively distinct in Canada with just two brothers coming in 1911 and 1913 respectively Henry and then Samuel George (my grandfather with my father Ernest Edward George). Those descendants are known to me and the antecedents. All of these other Blake lines in Canada are from other parts of the British Isles (and perhaps elsewhere). I have not yet begun to think in terms of Blake outside of the British Isles unless the spelling is Blake or Bleak[e].

The Companions of William the Conqueror

One of the small books that we purchased in France has an interesting plaque (William the Conqueror by Annie Fettu, OREP Editions, ISBN 978-2-912925-22-0 and the source: Archives departementales du Calvados - Photo Pascal Sellin). The names on the plaque follow in this blog post (the numbers denote where on the plaque the name occurs running down in five columns). Only 14 of the 425 names lack surnames. I sorted them into alphabetical order by surname for ease in reading through. I found the chart very interesting and was not surprised to see that there isn't a Blake/Blac mentioned. Many of the names are found in England today. I shall have to try and discover when this plaque was created and on what basis. The names follow below (those identified as participants in other documents are in bold and italic below Source: http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compagnons_de_Guillaume_le_Conqu%C3%A9rant):

I did find the reference in the Archives and it is not very old just 1927 but it would be interesting to borrow this book and see what it has to say about the document as it does look to be older than this time period:

Another rather interesting document emerged in my searching the web but again the date of this document is 18th century (the images are found at this site) and handwritten. This document does not carry the forenames but rather refers to the men as seigneur or comte as follows:

Rappel historique

A la mort d’Edouard le Confesseur en 1066, Harold se fait couronner roi d’Angleterre, prenant ainsi le trône qui revenait à Guillaume Le Bâtard.

Devant le refus d’Harold de lui laisser le royaume, Guillaume décide de lever une armée pour se rendre outre-manche. Tout juste dix mois séparent la mort d’Edouard de la victoire d’Hastings.

..............

Le débarquement se déroula sans encombre à Pevensey et les grandes manœuvres de l’armée aboutirent à la victoire d’Hastings, le 14 octobre 1066.

The Bayeux Tapestry which we saw in Rouen does mention some of these bolded and italicised names.
