The US Blayneys


A number of Blayney families emigrated to the USA, and I have some details here of some of them only. They are:

[01] Blayneys descended from Ireland's Cadwallader Blayney 1705-1794.  

This is by far the largest US Blayney / Blaney family I have information on, descended from two sons of Cadwallader, Cadwallader (em. 1795) and John (em.1804) and settling in the adjourning states of West Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
I suspect this Cadwallader was also the ancestor of Ambrose Blayney of the Blayney-Sproule-Steele line with links from Ireland to Canada, NZ and USA.

[02] Blayneys descended from Georgia BLAYNEY  

[03] Blayneys descended from Gertrude BLAYNEY
