Blake Genealogy & History

Blake, a famous English/Irish descriptive surname, is of contradictory origins. Its derivation could be from Old English "blac", meaning black, or "blaac", meaning white; thus it is uncertain whether it described the darker native Celts or the lighter invading Anglo-Saxons. In English Blake family history, the family seat (feudal manor) was in Devonshire. Blake is also popular in Ireland, where the family was one of the "tribes of Galway" of the 14th century. The Irish derivation could be patronymic from O'Blathmhaic, where Blath means fame. American Blake genealogy began in 1624 in Virginia. The Blake motto "virtus sola noblest" means "virtue is the only nobility".
