Genealogy of Rev Robert Blayney and Dr Benjamin Blayney
The Radnor, Kinsham and Evesham Blayneys

Separate origin to the Blayneys of Gregynog


Rev Robert Blayney, Lord of the Manor of Garlford d.?1836 [653]

There are frequent references to a Rev Robert Blayney, Lord of Manor of Garlford married to Catherine Howard eg [1504], but not appearing on any genealogy related to the Blayneys descended from Evan Blayney (1370-1430) of Tregynon, also

Dr Benjamin Blayney D.D., regius professor of Hebrew and Canon of Christ Church, Oxford 1728 - 1801

The Rev Robert Blayney's uncle, the famous Dr Benjamin Blayney, (1728-1801) of "Blayney Bible" fame is not from the Tregynon (and later Gregynog) line. It is now clear that Dr Benjamin Blayney's family was descended from the Blayneys of Kinsham in Radnorshire, Wales, and so not directly related to the Gregynog Blayneys, although there are some interesting inter-marriages between the families and some common ancestry.

This Blayney family claim ancestry from the famous Elystan Glodrydd, Prince of Fferlys (Fferyllwg, Ferleg, Ferlex or Ferlys), between the Severn and the Wye [492] [419]

The Kinsham, Herefordshire Blayneys

It is stated in Sir Thomas Phillips's "Glamorganshire Pedigrees", that one Howel, the son of David, married a daughter of "Mirick ap Evan ap Jenkin, of Blaen Llyfni, gent.", and that their son Evan, took Blayne as his surname. His descendants became "Blayney", and their residence was Kinsham, near Presteign(e) [667].

The genealogy below based around Burke's Commoners [229] but subsequent research has revealed flaws in this (some correct by Burke 1862 [419]). Many errors were identified and corrected by the "The Blayney family of Maelienydd, Kinsham, and, ultimately, Evesham" paper in the 1985 Radnorshire Society transactions [1087]

1 Hoell BLAENE [226] of the Elystan Glodrydd tribe
  aka How O'ER BLAENAU [239] of Radnor
  aka Hywel "Blaene" ap Meurig b~1370 (Llanddewi-yn-Heiob, Radnorshire)
  ??= aka Hoewell ap Jenkin, gent of Blaen Llyfni (5Km west of Tretower).
  [Blaen Llyfni means source of the Llynfi, and the castle is
   on the source of the Avon Llynfi] 
  A lineage for Hoell BLAENE (decending from Henry I via Einion Sais) is given on
  the Herbert_Einion page

     relationship to Evan Blayney (1370-1430) of Tregynon ]
