Welcome to Blancardus, the medieval Blanchard research hub.

The aim of this site is to gather into one location a database of all medieval references to members of the Blanchard family, in England, from 1066 - 1500. The database was initially created by merging all the indexes in the Medieval Blanchard articles that appeared in Adversaria, The Journal of the Blanchard Family History Society, along with other miscellaneous sources found since then.

Members of this hub can help in the following ways:

  • Update the database with any new references found;
  • Take existing references and look up the text in the source the index points to, and add to the database;
  • Translate any Latin text and add the translation to the record in the database.

To help with this last area a Latin help page has been set up with a built-in translator and other useful resources.
