Blankenship Genealogy & History

Blankenship is a locational English name, thought to be derived from Norse "blenkin", meaning valley, and Gaelic "sop", meaning wheat. Originally from Blencarn in Cumbria, the Blenkinsopps migrated to Northumberland and Durham; those who remained in Cumbria changed the name from Blenkinsopp to Blenkinship, probably a result of occupation (shipwright). The Blankenship family history in Northumberland includes a Blenkinsopp castle on their ancient manor held from the 13th century. American Blankenship genealogy dates to a 1686 emigrant to Virginia. The Blankenship motto "Dieu defende le droit" means "God defends the right". Three gold wheat sheaves on the coat of arms signify plentifulness.
