Origins of surname

The derivation of this name is somewhat confusing. It either comes from the old English blac, meaning black, or blaac, meaning white. So the original Blake either had dark hair or fair hair.

Early records

There were Blake marriages in St Saviour from 1543, through the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, but it was not until early in the 19th century that a family became established.
