Calling all Blasdales — 77 Comments

  1. Hi all my mother was a Blasdall her father was Mark Arron same as his father. The family is from Nottingham and were lace makers. Came out to Australia in 1862. Lived in Brisbane. Anyone else from this side?

  2. i live in nottingham my father was denis blasdale but nobody in the family can help with is father , is the any body can help

    • I was born in Beeston (5 miles SW of Nottingham, England) in 1937; my family knew no other Blasdales in the area, though there were always a few other families (2-4) in the local telephone directory. I am surprised at how many Blasdales there now are or once were in the Nottingham area! I now live in New Jersey, USA, 30 miles west of New York (City); I have an elder brother Keith living in Glasgow, Scotland. There seem to be quite a few Blasdales in the USA (even at least one other John Blasdale), though I have never tried to contact any.

  3. Hi there – any Blasdales in Canada ….. ?? We are in Toronto Ontario. It is not a common surname here at all.

  4. hi my names rebecca blasdale and in 2008 my mother (diane blasdale) posted a note on this blog, about are reletives in australia. i have resently become interested in my family past and hope that one day we will discover long lost reletives.
    i never new there is so many blasdale’s out there. i am now 12 years old and still living in nottingham.
    best wishes becky
    p.s please reply thanks

    • Hi! Rebecca. Yes there are Blasdale’s out there in Australia. Get hold of the Adelaide. South Australia, phone book to start. There are a few in Western Australia as well. Try on the web for phone books and I think there may also be some in New South Wales. I was looking up ‘ancestry.com.uk’ and such web sites. So it’s interesting to find out also that in the United States, they figure prominently in it’s history. There was a fameos concert piano player who died some time ago. Also a Blasdale who survived the American civil war of 1863 and settled in Navarda. So if you look up miltary records it’s a facenating jorney. The one i’m most familar with is a Fred Blasdale who was killed at Dunkirk in ww2 in 1940 he came from Carlton, in Nottingham. Military records can help you to piece together a conection with others that can surprise you. I hope this has helped. Glenys

  5. Hello everyone of you Blasdales, I am the dad of Lee who will be 40 on the 7th April and together with Lucy, they are expecting their first child in June. I’m sure all you lovely Blasdale people will want to join me in wishing them all the best. Then to those of the Blasdale clan that I am hearing about for the first time, I trust you are enjoying a happy and healthy life where
    ever in the world you may be.

  6. Blimey – some things are a bit wierd, like finding a Blasdale website!! and also finding my Auntie Dawn – who I haven’t seen for 20 years – posted a blog a couple of years ago.
    My name is Lee Blasdale originally from Coventry. My Dad is Denis Blasdale whose father and grand father were both called John Ernest Blasdale from Leicester. Has anyone tried mapping a family tree, and can I help?

My father was an only child. But he himself had 6 children John, Dennis, Keith, Peter, Wendy and of course myself. I am amazed at how many Blasdale’s there are in the world.

  29. more blasdales

    Hi, like everyone else I’m interested to hear of other blasdales. My fathers family are from the Nottingham area – seems to be a common link. My grandfather was Edward Allen Blasdale, Known as Allen, born 1895. Must be related to the grandfather of one of your other correspondants – same unusual spelling of the christian name. My father was an only child (as far as we know!)so it can’t be the same man.I have put together a rough family tree of what i can find of our branch for the last4 generations and would be interested to see if it slots in with anyone elses. Music seems to feature quite a lot – my great great grandfather Arthur was a composer, and other members v musical. have others found this?

  42. Blasdales

    Hi to all the Blasdales! – I’m currently researching my family tree and think I may have discovered a link with the Blasdale family in Nottingham. My fathers’ name is Michael Hallam-Clarke (and his father was George Hallam-Clarke) and I’d had no luck with name – My father has recently found a limited family tree that his father George drew up and it appears that Georges’ father (my great grandfather) was an Arthur Blasdale from Nottingham. We think he was married to a Beatrice Mary Adams (her maiden name?) and they had 7 children – John Arthur, Edward Adams, Roland Harry, James Blasdale, Harold (nickname Jelly), George (my grandfather) and Beatrice Jennifer (who we think was known as Jenny and married a vicar called Aggasi). At some point the family name changed to Clarke and we believe Arthur (and family) moved to Ramsgate in Kent where he was the Town Clerk. Does this tie into any existing Blasdale tree?

I will though be very pleased to be contacted by any of the BLASDALE clan from where ever. Also am trying to get a better picture of the history of the name BLASDALE and it’s dirivitives. Have tracked the name as far back as 1500’s. I have been corosponding with Steve for some time and also there are BLASDALE’s in South Australia. So we’re everywhere.

    My son, Patrick Blasdale (8), is doing a family tree. We have quite a lot of detail but are intersted in any details of Allen Blasdale – born around 1875 – who was my Great Grandfather or anyone else called Blasdale in that period or before. We have some details of his 4 brothers (Arthur, George, Joseph and John) and 2 sisters (Annie and Mary) I guess that with a name like Blasdale I must be related to anyone with the same name!!! Any help would be interesting. Thanks Nick Blasdale

    So interesting to find out about Blasdales. Don’t know if we are related or not. My father, Albert Arthur Blasdale [one of 6 boys and a girl ] came to U.S with his uncle, Wilfred Wright , in early 1900’s

    • Hi Pete,
      hope you get my mail. Since I eventually got internet in our village (between Hamburg and Bremen), I managed to find your name. How are you doing? Are you still in New Zealand? Would be delighted to have an answer.
      I am working in Bremen and bought a house in the country side. My mother is 85 years now, and living here, too. I am divorced (of course) and found a nice, new relationship, sharing work and country life with me.
      Kind regards
      Henry
