About the Blankenship surname

The Blankenship name started out in Northern England and was first pronounced Blenkinsopp. Our ancestors settled in Virginia and i'm not sure exactly when the name became Blankenship, but there became two spellings of the name, Blankenship, and Blankinship, our family used both.

                                                                  Rickey Colton Blankenship

If you are a descendant of George Henry Blenkinsop, born Minorca Spain c. 1780, and have had an autosomal DNA test, please contact me if you would like to share information about admixture results.
