The BLAKE family name appears many times in our extended family. Not all lines link into each other.

The ideas behind my research into the BLAKE family name is to -

1.  Assist the BLAKE one name study

2.  I hope to prove, or disprove, an illegitimate connection between my grandfather Geoffrey Earle JACKSON and the Garson BLAKE line. The only sure way for this to happen is to use DNA tests. I am working on this.

3.  I am trying to establish links between any/all the BLAKE blood lines.

This is a fascinating family. Obviously too much work for one person, but I think I have enough basic data to branch out into some of the 'stories' that are sitting there, waiting to be discovered.
