Over ten years in the making, The Blakeneys: An Etymological, Ethnological, and Genealogical Study, by award-winning author and historian Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook, is the most detailed work ever undertaken on the origins and meaning of the Blakeney surname and family; a classic that will fascinate, educate, and enlighten for generations to come.

This international bestselling 400-page chronicle includes not only a comprehensive exploration of the family’s beginnings and name, but also a complete Blakeney family tree (beginning with Willihelm de Blakenia, born about 1150), an exhaustive Blakeney Surname Dictionary (that includes all related names), thirty-eight illustrations, the family crest and motto, articles on Blakeney Point (Norfolk) and Lord William Blakeney (1672-1761), information concerning the Blakeney-Blakley Family Association of Canada and the Castleblakeney Development Committee of Ireland, and an in-depth bibliography and index. The foreword is by Ray H. Blakeney, former president of the Blakeney-Blakley Family Association. The Blakeneys is a must-have for every Blakeney family member, friend, and researcher.

Editorial Reviews

“With 'The Blakeneys' Mr. Seabrook, a cousin of the Blakeneys, has done a great service in his excellent research of the Blakeney family name. . . . Mr. Seabrook’s book will, I hope, make you feel that a most useful contribution has been made to uncover the mystery of our name.” - RAY H. BLAKENEY (former President of the Blakeney-Blakley Family Association, and the author of, 'My Help Comes From Above: Blakeney and Blakey - The History of Chambers Blakely and David Bleakney and Their Neighbours in the 18th Century').AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “I have been doing family research for some time and this book really answered a lot of questions and helped me put more branches on my tree. I love how the author, Mr. Seabrook, dissects the surname to find the meaning. Very interesting.” - DAWN (Canada).AMAZON REVIEW, FOUR STARS - “THE BLAKENEYS”: “As a Blakeney descendant and amateur genealogist I found it fascinating to learn that we probably originated as Danish Vikings. The etymology is detailed, and can be a stumbling block if the reader is not interested in word origins, but it is important to the understanding of the origins of the Blakeney family.” - KAYE T. LEIDY.AMAZON REVIEW, FOUR STARS - “A MUST FOR ALL BLAKENEYS”: “I got this book since my surname is Blakeney. While I have read other things on the origin of the name and knew that the Blakeneys came from Normandy after 1066, it was interesting to find that the name goes back even further and is a true Danish name.” - CAPTAIN BILL BLAKENEY.
