Contrary to what a previous reviewer states, William Blanton was NOT the first immigrant to Boston prior to 1638. He may have been the first Blanton to Boston, but defininately not the first immigrant.
This volume would be usable if it were indexed!

This book is not an accurate accounting regarding the surname of William (1) BLANTON. The facts have been misconstrued for many generations, and the statements of Blanding family ancestry is incorrect..
Primary sources for William (1) BLANTON of Upton-Upon-Severn, England who is the first BLANTON emmigrant into Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts prior to 1638 are available through Ancestry.com Any researcher of the Blanding/Blanton family can enter WILLIAM BLANTON into Ancestry.coms search engine, and PRIMARY DOCUMENTATION regarding WILLIAM (1) BLANTON will be available. First and foremost is the Will of WILLIAM BLANTON 1662 Boston, Suffolk, MA, researchers should read the WILL OF WILLIAM BLANTON throughly and recognize Williams name was indeed BLANTON, sometimes referred to also as BLANTINE, but absolutely not Blanding. The name Blanding appears in Rehoboth at some time after 1701. Five (5) orphaned son's of William (2) Blantine/BLANTON ARE WELL DOCUMENTED in Boston, Suffolk, MA records and are posted on the Blanton Family Historians website, these son's surname was BLANTINE, they were in the Gaurdianship of their Aunt Phoebe (2) Blanton Pierce and her husband Nehemiah Pierce in 1701. No where in early Boston, Suffolk, MA records will the name Blanding be found...only BLANTINE/BLANTON.
William BLANTON's father of England, his name is not Joseph.
A nationwide DNA testing of Blanton descendants and Blanding descendants have provided proof that these two families do share a common ancestor by the name of WILLIAM () BLANTON first emigrant prior to 1638 Boston, MA and Thomas Blanton the first BLANTON emigrant into Old Rappahannock County, Virginia in 1682.
At present we do not know why or when a name change took place. A fact that is...William (1) BLANTON WAS THE FIRST EMIGRANT INTO BOSTON, SUFFOLK, MASSACHUSETTS prior to 1638.
