Here are some tidbits of information from various sources that I am trying to piece together. Let me start by listing some of the many possible last names you may encounter while researching our family.

Blancit Blansit Blancet Blanset Blanchet Blonset Blaucit Blasnet Blanshel Blancket Blanshot Blankett Beanshet and of course all of the above with two t's IE Blancitt Blansitt etc.

I spoke with a gentleman named Charles Blancet who lives in California near me. He is 86 years old and is the son of Clyde Blancet. He said his family roots are in somerset county pennsylvania.  His mothers name was Elizabeth. He told me he believes that he is of German decent. He said 6 brothers arrived 1750 and 3 went north and 3 went south. 3-31-2011 ken blansit

Source: Maryland Prerogative Court, Inventories, Vol. 58, p. 250.
Comment: Since John Blanchet had sisters Susannah and Mary Blanchet, I would guess that they are his kin, Susannah Haislip and Mary Robertson. Another John Blanchet is shown as creditor in Mary Provin's Aug. 1767 inventory.

--------------------------SURNAMES: BLANCHET * CLOYD * JAMES
James K. Blanscett Friday, November 19, 1999
JAMES C. BLANCHET (BLANCET/BLANSETT) listed as having been born in SMYTH CO, VIRGINIA about 1841. Parents listed as EPHRAIM BLANCHET (BLANCET) and RHODA J. NICHOLS from NORTH CAROLINA. Looking for information on EPHRAIM BLANCHET (BLANCET) and RHODA J. NICHOLS, specifically, marriage record, and parents for EPHRAIM BLANCHET (BLANCET). Ancestor, ASA BLANCHET, reported to have come from England about 1632 and settled in Upper Virginia(WYTH CO area). Father's name may be WILLIS or WILLIAM BLANCHETT. Sir name different spellings: BLANSET, BLANCET, BLANCHET, BLANSETT, BLANCETT, BLANCHETT, BLANSETTE, BLANCETTE, BLANCHETTE, BLANSCETT. Also looking for JOEL BLANCHETT (1760-1770), JOHN BLANCHETT (died 1758), ROBERT BLANCHETT (birth about 1657), ELIZA BLANCETT (born abt 1650). Family groupings for the BLANCET family during the period of 1650 TO 1800 living in the WYTH CO. area would be desireable.
