Where is the Blacknell family from?

In 1891 there were 54 Blacknell families living in London. This was about 26% of all the recorded Blacknell’s in the UK. London had the highest population of Blacknell families in 1891.

Nottinghamshire had the highest number of families as a proportion of its population.

Judy – second cousin

Hi Paul,

I came across your Blacknell history recently, and have been overjoyed by the find.

My maiden name was Blacknell. I was born in St Asaph 1962. My father is Ronald Blacknell, my grandparents were Frank and Freda Blacknell. I have an older brother Philip Blacknell, born 1959.

I’d be happy for you to get in touch if I can be of any help.

Judy

Paws for thought

I’m Paul’s second cousin and we share Frederick Blacknell and Clara Freer as our great-grandparents. I took up family history research earlier this year and have been amazed at what there is out there to find.

5th cousin identified

About a year ago I found a reference by Jeff Winter who had been researching the Blacknalls on the Calverton Guestbook website.

After getting in touch and checking his research notes, he supplied me with some background which confirmed that his wife is my 5th cousin (assuming all the other links are correct of course).
