re blanchfield name origins

to the best of my knowledge the irish blanchfields came from "blanchville" in wales which was a conmpletely Norman village and is now known as Whittington (of Dick Whittington's cat fame). the lord there was Fulc de Wrantz from Lorraine (where the French Blanchville is located). de Wrantz is the same as the Kilkenny name Freney today and the Wrantz and Blanchville appqarently went over to Ireland when the welsh recaptured the territory around Whittington.

This info is generally available under the Whittington sites.

Kind regards

Brian Carney
