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.
