My grandfather's last name was Blades. Our ethnic background is Caucasian. I can trace my Blades family back to 1760 In Lincolnshire, England to Henry Blades. After this they can be found in Cambridgeshire and Norfolk area. My third great grandparents are buried in Walpole St. Peter's church in Norfolk. Does anyone know the origin of the Blades surname? Thank you, Laura in the U.S.
