Re: How old is the surname ?
Thanks for your message. The only other details I have are these. David Lloyd Blayney, wife, Elizabeth Jones, 1st son, Lewis Blayney, of Gregynog Hall, Powys, Wales,m.Bridget Price, late 16th cent.descended to Arthur Blayney, died 1795, no issue, this branch died out. 3rd son, Edward, went to Ireland about 1610 and became 1st Baron Blayney of Castleblayney in 1621, died 1629, descended to Cadwallader Davis, 12th Lord, died 1874, without issue. Looks as though Thomas must have been the second son.I have the genealogies in between, but no more details about David Lloyd Blayney. Hope this may be of some small help. John Smith-Dodsworth.
