It is generally considered that the surname Blaxall and it's variant spellings are locative and derive from the East Suffolk village or hamlet of Blaxhall, the earliest recorded examples being :-
Adam de Blakesale,
My distant cousins, Angela Ward, Carlton Blaxill and Dave Martin have made invaluable contributions to our knowledge of Blaxall genealogy as under :-
Angela Ward & her tribe(s)
Carlton Blaxill's extensive Site
Martin's Blaxills & Big Guns !
My modest contribution is My Paternal Line dating back to 1621.
I have also collated a series of extracts from the Suffolk section of Domesday Book which was compiled in the year AD 1086 by order of King William 1st, Duke of Normandy.
These extracts comprise twenty-two references to land holdings in Blaccessala, totalling 326 acres.
