The Shropshire (Salop) Blayneys (and beyond)



Go to:

Blainey and Blayney have been Shropshire surnames for over three centuries [667] yet the Christian names such as Thomas, Richard and Howell are also very common Blayney names of younger brothers of landed Blayneys of nearby Montgomeryshire. Direct links with these nearby Blayneys are still being searched. The earliest parish records of Shropshire Blayneys include Lewes BLAYNEY (bur.02Oct1602), Dorathy BLAYNEY bur.23Dec1636 and Martha BLAYNEY (married John EVANS on 20May1792) in the parish of parish of Clunbury and Thomas Blayney who married Mary Phillips 10Apr1638 in Stapleton who could possibly be the father of Thomas Blayney (b.1675).

This possibility became a probability when I found evidence that David Lloyd Blayney purchased land in Churchstoke (before 1585) and Hordley [1496] and as early as 1607 his son John also had holdings in Churchstock and other parts of Shropshire. [1497]. David Lloyd's oldest son and heir was Lewis Blayney who is recorded selling some of his father's Churchstoke land in 1591 along with brothers Thomas & Edward. [1293]. It is this Thomas Blayney (who became Deptuty Sheriff to Arthur Weaver in Shropshire in 1667) is the best candidate as father or grandfather of Thomas Blayney born 1675 (below).

Condover (see ChurchStoke below) is 5km south of Shewsbury in Shropshire. Also, Richard Blayney was born in Berriew (30km SW of Shrewsbury) in 1622 but lived in Broseley SE of Shrewsbury and on his death in 1683 he was residing in Wrockwardine, which is 15km east of Shrewsbury. Lichfield is another 50km east showing an easterly migration pattern of landless Blayneys into England is the probable origin of many Shropshire (and probably even some London Blayneys).

Churchstoke "on the border"


Less than 20km East of Newtown (and only 7km SE of Montgomery) is the small Mercian village of Churchstoke, while technically still in Wales (Powys), the parish is partly in the Hundred of Cawrse (Montgomery) and partly in the Hundred of Chirbury (Salop). Is is right beside Offa's Dyke.

Because the border does a loop, Churchstoke is actually East of a section of Shropshire!

The following genealogy is by Peter Blayney [636], via (John) Brian Blayney, supplemented by on-line genealogies (eg Julie Ann Williams, Meryl Liptrott).

1 Thomas BLAYNEY b.1675
  Probably the son (or grandson) of Thomas BLAYNEY, in turn
  son of Lewis BLAYNEY. See evidence above.
  Alternative parents are Thomas & Maria BLAYNEY 
  of Gregynon who married 1666 in Chirbury
 + Mary Ann TRACY b.1680; m.1702 (Shrewsbury, Shropshire)
   I had wondered if "M TACY" was actually "TRACY", given 
   the close relationship between the Blayneys and Tracys 
   [Gregynog was left to the Tracys -see Arthur BLAYNEY and [1501]] 
   Found to be Mary Ann TRACY on [1500]

As noted by S. P. Thomas, S. P. [208], a number of Blayneys seemed to migrate from Montgomeryshire into Shropshire during the 17th & 18th centuries. The ancestors of Professor Blainey were in Mainstone, Shropshire in the mid 1700s through to at least 1837, but some moved south to Llanfair Waterdine and Knighton then well east to Chelmarsh on the banks of the Severn by the 1830s

See Mainstone Blayneys

Lydbury North

Not 8km east of Mainstone, one finds Lydbury North where some Blayneys are buried [208]. [628] [629] [630]

Thomas Blayney (1785-1830), the renown Welsh harpist "kept a public-house at Lydney North (sic), near Walcot, the Shropshire seat of Lord Powis". Interestingly, This Thomas was born as the 3rd son of Arthur Blayney, publican of Llanllwchaiarn. It is very possible that the inkeeper Thomas Blayney (below) was his close relative as his son was also born in Llanllwychairn.
