In Reply to: Blagrove and Blagrave history 11th to 21st cent by Ian Blagrove Ian Blagrave of 132

HI Ian, haven't talked for awhile so I thought I'd say hi. Haven't had much time to research this summer as I've been teaching summer school. I had a chance to look at your book on-line (2005 ed.) and you mentioned that the Irish Blagrave's settled there during the reign of QEI in the late 16th century. ANy idea who they were? I do have some info that may help you connect us. My Maria Blagrave was probably a twin as she had twins and the family has perpetuated twins somewhere every generation since. Her father John, was a shoe maker in Bolart, Kings County. Checking the IGS I found two other Blagraves who were also shoe makers, Joseph BLagrave in Abington Berkshire (1851, 1871 England census) who may have been born in Ireland in 1802 and Richard Blagrave born in Ireland in 1810 and had immigrated to the US by 1850. I thought it a coincidence that 3 Blagraves from Ireland were all shoemakers. Perhaps they are brothers and learned the trade from there father? Anyway, you're book was very interesting. You mentioned and appendix where you try to update info from other family memebers. Would you like info from me? By the way, you're family is beautiful! You are the same age as my wife Lisa( I'm a bit older) We have a 12 year old, Britton and a 2 year old, Braydon. Maybe you can also point me in the direction of how you got accepted into the college of arms. I have several royal lines in my family. Look forward to hearing back from you. Brad

(this seems to be the only way we can e-mail as I can't send direct to you from mine. Did you experience the same problem?)
