 Historical Information

In May 1943, the war in North Africa came to an end in Tunisia with the defeat of the Axis powers by a combined Allied force.

The campaign began on 8 November 1942, when Commonwealth and American troops made a series of landings in Algeria and Morocco. The Germans responded immediately by sending a force from Sicily to northern Tunisia, which checked the Allied advance east in early December. Meanwhile, in the south, the Axis forces defeated at El Alamein were withdrawing into Tunisia along the coast through Libya, pursued by the Allied Eighth Army. 

By mid April 1943, the combined Axis force was hemmed into a small corner of north-eastern Tunisia and the Allies were grouped for their final offensive.

Many of those buried at Massicault War Cemetery died in the preparation for the final drive to Tunis in April 1943 and in that advance at the beginning of May.

The cemetery contains 1,576 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War, 130 of them unidentified.

General family information

This curious surname is an old Nottinghamshire (UK) name; it is still localised even today after 600 years (or more) of use as a surname. (Nottinghamshire is a county in the middle of England). The name is so rare that neither of the standard reference books of surnames include the name Blatherwick. Both Reaney’s “Dictionary of Surnames” and the “Oxford Dictionary of Surnames” disregard this quaint Nottinghamshire name.

The first reference to the name in official documents occurs in 1314 where a manuscript (FF.VII.278) mentions SIMON DE BLATHERWICKwho was the Rector of Barton in Norfolk. CHRISTABELL BLATHERWICK is recorded back in 1583. Christabell was from Lambley (Notts) & on 6th October 1583 she married one William Spibie at Lambley. Another early mention of the surname is in a Harleian manuscript which includes a list of freeholders in Nottinghamshire in 1698. One of the listed names is:- JOSEPH BLATHERWICK OF LAMLEY. The place name, Lambley (note the different spelling), is a village 8 kilometers north east of Nottingham.

It is considered that the surname actually originates from over the border in the county of Northamptonshire where there was a parish called Blatherwick or more accurately Blatherwycke.(Like many a surname, the derivation comes from a place name). In the Domesday Survey of 1086, we read that Robert De Buci had lands in “Stoch Hundret” [Hundred of Stoke]. Thus: “Norman holds of Robert [De Buci] 2 hides in Blarewich [= Blatherwick]. There is land for 6 ploughs. Hugh and William hold of him. In demesne there are 2 ploughs; and 12 villeins and 5 bordars have 4 ploughs. There is a mill rendering 30 pence, and 6 acres of meadow. Wood[land] 1 league in length and 3 furlongs in breadth. It is worth 18 shillings.” NB a “hide” was a unit for assessing tax; a “plough” was a measure of how much land could be ploughed by a team of 8 oxen, while the “demesne” was the land retained by the lord of the manor ( the rest was held under the lord by the peasants). In a 12th century survey detailed in a Cottonian manuscript we see the following for the Hundred of Coreby: “In Blatherwyk Robert Fitz Hugh and Richard Dengayne 2 hides.”

The Parish of Blatherwycke is first mentioned in the English parish registers in 1621 & is described as being 10 kilometers north east of Rockingham. Today there is a village in Northamptonshire called Blatherwycke about 7 kilometers north east of Corby. (The village was called Blarewich in the Domesday Book of 1086). There is also a Lake Blatherwycke. Blatherwycke & its lake are just off the A43 road. 

Blatherwick Hall

This splendid Georgian house was built in Northamptonshire during 1720-24, at a total cost of 3,838 pounds two shillings and sixpence. The house was built for Henry O’Brien by Robert Wright of Castor near Peterborough. The design was by Thomas Ripley who had posts in the King’s Works & who designed several notable houses. During the Second World War, the building was used by the military & was badly damaged by them. It was subsequently put up for auction & was demolished in 1948 for the building materials to be re-used.

A later view

Another view showing a hunt is from Kate Blatherwick

Another view from Michael Day

According to Tony Walsh, Blatherwycke Hall was in the village of Blatherwyke in east Northamptonshire, and the only remnant of the hall today is the stable block. On the rear of the stable block is a coat of arms (arm with sword) with the inscription D.O.B underneath.

Research by Marcus Botterill reveals that D.O.B. were the initials of Donagh O’Brien, an early owner of the hall. Marcus is developing a website about Blatherwick Hall. View Marcus’ website.


There is a verb “to blather” – this means “to talk foolishly”; which word was first recorded in use in 1825. It is a variant of the word “blether”.The word “blather” is also a variant of the word “bladder”.“Wick” means a town, hamlet or farm. “Wycke” was an older, alternative spelling of “wick”.The place name meaning of Blatherwycke is said to be “the farm where bladder plants grew”. Or again it could be a worn down form of the Old English word for blackthorn.

The Search For John & Kenneth Blatherwick

(This search is now over)

Norman Blatherwick was born, one of 4 children, on 3rd February 1931 at Perlethorpe-cum-Budby in North Nottinghamshire (UK), before moving to Worksop & then Blidworth (again both in Nottinghamshire). Norman now lives in Australia & wanted to track down his missing brothers & his sister, all last seen in a childrens home in Worksop around 1946. Details of the brothers are given below, together with details of the sister. All are deceased.

The youngest brother was called JohnAlan Blatherwick. John Alan was born 27th Nov 1936. at Kilton Hospital, Worksop. John, with his two brothers & his sister, was soon placed in the Children’s Home on Cheapside in Worksop, but was subsequently adopted & took a different surname, namely Hird. John Hird lived all his life in Worksop & died there in 1990. The sister was called Frances Helen Blatherwick and she was born Feb 1934. She died before she was 2 years old. The eldest brother was Kenneth Algernon Blatherwick (1929 – 1984). After a long & painful search by Ann & Eddie Blatherwick, much information has been discovered about John Hird and about Kenneth Algernon Blatherwick & his family.

By the way, research so far has not revealed anybody else called Norman Blatherwick.

Is Aussie Norman, the only person in the world called Norman Blatherwick?

Sure looks like it !

Another man actually called Norman Blatherwick has now been tracked down – this time in the United States!

Both Norman Blatherwicks had resided in Blidworth, a tiny hamlet in Nottinghamshire (UK), so they just had to be related!

Unfortunately, this Norman is no longer with us:- Norman Blatherwick – b. Blidworth 1906, d. Florida 1988.

Yet another Norman Blatherwick has been tracked down, athough this guy was actually Norman Henry Blatherwick (1912-1972). He was a surgeon in Los Angeles. A fourth Norman Blatherwick has surfaced, born Bolsover 1911. Lewis Norman Blatherwick trained as a chemist but worked in Clowne for 45 years as an optician! His sons are Paul David Blatherwick & Alan John Blatherwick. (The latter’s name is curiously similar to John Alan Blatherwick, the subject of the original search above & the reason for this site coming into existence. Alan John lives in Oz).

What is it about this Blatherwick breed which drives them to populate distant realms?

More about the Blatherwick name …

While the striking name of Blatherwick has spread to Canada, United States, South Africa & Australia, it has not travelled so well in England. The whole of the London Telephone Directory contains merely one Blatherwick. The 1901 Census listed 121 people called Blatherwick in the whole of Nottinghamshire. The following table has been kindly supplied by David Blatherwick – a Nottingham lad. The table shows the distribution of Blatherwicks in England in 2002, & demonstrates how few of the family have migrated far from the Blatherwick homelands!�

The Blatherwick Memorial

Michael Clift heard of this memorial many years ago when he was in the British South Africa Police. Michael said the memorial�was in a BSAP depot in Salisbury.

Research by Julie Brutnell shows a war grave in South Africa for Captain James Blatherwick, British South African Police, who died on 26th Oct 1918. Geraint Jones, an ex-member of the British South Africa Police, has now confirmed that the Blatherwick Memorial was for Captain James Blatherwick; the memorial is in Green Square, Morris Training Depot in Salisbury.

Andrew D. Field, who runs the British South Africa Police website at www.bsap.org , comments that the memorial was erected in 1921; it honoured Captain Blatherwick as the first ever Regimental Sergeant Major in the history of the BSAP. Andrew points that the good captain may have died on 26th November and not October 26th; he also suspects that the memorial may have been removed.

Captain Blatherwick was born in Cape Town on 2nd January 1869 & joined the BSAP aged 27 in 1896 as a Troop Sergeant. RSM 1897. Inspector 1913. Commissioned in 1917 & became Depot Commandant before he died in 1918. Served for 22 years with BSAP. A BSAP memorial is to be placed at the National Memorial Arboretum (near Lichfield, UK) where there are already about 150 memorials of national significance. The new memorial for the BSAP will be a smaller version of the Blatherwick Memorial & will be sculpted by Winston Hart.

Dr Charles Blatherwick & Lily Blatherwick (see above)John Jeff is seeking further information on Dr Charles Blatherwick & his parents. John is descended from Charles through Edith Blatherwick who was the elder sister of Lily Blatherwick. Edith was to marry William Raikes in 1879, while her more famous sister, Lily, married A. S. Hartrick (OBE), the eminent artist (exhibited 29 times at the RA) & author of several art reference books. He was a friend of Gaugin.

John Jeff writes “The Blatherwick family spent the summer months of 1871 at Kilmahonaig, Crinan, Argyllshire (now Kilmahumaig), having journeyed up from Row (now Rhu) in Dunbartonshire by steamer. They kept a large illustrated diary of their stay, the Kilmahonaig Journal (in our bookshelves), listing their visitors, what they saw or shot for the pot, and anything of interest, together with pages of poetry or doggerel.” Regarding Dr Charles Blatherwick, he comments: “Edith Blatherwick’s father was Dr Charles Blatherwick, who studied for his MD in Dublin but, as far as I can discover, never actually practised medicine, as his occupation was ‘Gentleman’. A watercolour and landscape painter, he was Treasurer of the Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour (RSW), whose members seemed to enjoy sumptuous Dinners, and President of the Glasgow Pen & Ink Club. He only had 3 exhibits in the Royal Academy, a few of his watercolours adorn our walls, and there is also the beautifully illustrated-in-minature diary of his journey from Liverpool to Pau in SW France in 1880, in our bookshelves. He also wrote popular songs of the time, what would now be regarded as sentimental old rubbish, and there are a couple of examples amongst my sheet music. They all lived at a house called Dunaivon, Rhu, Helensburgh.” If you can help John Jeff with more info on Charles Blatherwick & his ancestors, please email John Jeff now.


William Blatherwick (b 1824 at Carlton, Notts) married Maria/Anna Johnson (b 1832/3 in Bottesford, Leicester). William & his wife had 8 children, namely Hannah/Anna (b 1853), Rebecca (b 1855), William (b approx Nov 1860), Mary (b 1863), Eliza (b 1865), Emma (b Sept 1869), James and Samuel (b 20 March 1857). Samuel married Margaret Varley*.

Some of Samuel & Margaret’s children were: Samuel (born out of wedlock 1884), Elizabeth (born about 1886), John (born about 1886), James (b 1890), Harry (b 1894), Ernest (b 1899), Albert Ernest (b 1902), Lillian (date?) & Naomi Doris (b 1905) – known as “Big” Doris! (There was a twin to “Big” Doris). Samuel & Margaret Blatherwick also took in children of relatives, for example Herbert Blatherwick whose mother was the Emma Blatherwick of the last paragraph. The first few children were born in Awsworth, Nottinghamshire. Awsworth is a village 7 kms west of Nottingham & just south of Eastwood. The other children were born at Ilkeston in Derbyshire. James Blatherwick (born 1890) married Eliza Savage & they had 3 children: Harry, Doris Hilda & one other daughter. The Ilkeston Advertiser featured James & Eliza Blatherwick in 1961:“A man, who started work at Cossall Colliery when he was 13 & earned 18d a day (less than 8p), and his wife celebrate their Golden Wedding Anniversary this weekend. They are Mr & Mrs James Blatherwick of 3 Little Hallam Lane, Ilkeston. Throughout his long career, Mr Blatherwick has worked as a collier, greengrocer, fishmonger, barman & finally fish-fryer. A native of Ilkeston, he was born on Awsworth Road & went to Chaucer School. He is a member of a family of 21, six of whom are still living.” So far 13 of this amazingly large family of 21 are accounted for, but somewhere are another 8 siblings or cousins/relatives brought up in this family. Do you know any Blatherwick who might be part of this family?

This research carried out by Anielka Briggs (nee Rice) living in Australia who is the granddaughter of Doris Hilda Blatherwick. Anielka is also knowledgeable about the Varley side of the family. More information is sought about the children of Samuel Blatherwick & their descendants. Anielka would like to hear from other researchers too. To contact her please click here * Margaret Varley’s sister Lydia went to the States & became a Mormon. Margaret’s Aunt Fanny (a Widdowson) also went to live in the States. Interesting family!


Elizabeth Blatherwick of Oxton (1835-1920). Elizabeth was christened at Oxton (Notts) on 26th April 1835. Her parents were Samuel Blatherwick (labourer) and Ann Blatherwick. When Elizabeth was 5 months pregnant, she married George Walker at Nuthall (Notts) on 13.3.1854. Elizabeth was able to sign her name on the marriage certificate, but George had to sign X.

The first 8 children were born at Oxton.

Elizabeth died at Halam in 1920 aged 85. She outlived her husband by 39 years. In Oxton churchyard there are Walker family graves & also some impressive Blatherwick graves. These are situated behind the yew trees to the right of the church when seen from the road. The graves date from 1736 onwards. In the church is a flag with a brass plate saying ‘This state flag of Pennsylvania (USA) was given by the Governor (The Hon. J. S. Fine) to Oxton Church in 1951 to commemorate those sons of Oxton who in the 17th Century assisted William Penn in the founding of the famous colony’. Oxton Church registers commence in 1652.

Yorkshire Blatherwicks More information is sought about this family who lived in Sheffield. John Blatherwick, lace merchant, may have lived Sheffield (?) John Blatherwick (son of above), born 1827. Commission Agent & wholesale fruit merchant in Sheffield in 1862. Regarded as a very successful business man, he was also known to be a sugar importer & grocer. At time of wedding living on Occupation Road, Sheffield. Married 28 May 1857 at Christ Church, Doncaster, to Maria [Woodcock]. John’s business address in 1862 was 5 Bank Buildings in Sheffield & his home address was then 217 Western Bank. In 1864 he is recorded as living on Broomhill Terrace. In 1878 the couple are living at 25 Broom Grove, Sheffield, but later moved to Tyas Hall near Barnsley.

A coat of arms was adopted by the family (but see below for more about this). 

Under the crest there is a motto which says “Defensio non offensio .” The coat of arms is described thus:-� “He beareth Chequy argent and azure, a Chief Gules by the name of Blatherwicke, crest, an arm embowed in armour, holding a Sword ppr. – Granted Council of Trent A.D. 1564.” Chequey – a shield with a chequered surface; argent – usually shown as white since silver would tarnish; azure – blue; a Chief Gules – Gules was the colour red, while Chief was a geometrical design on the top part of the shield. Embowed – the arm was bent; ppr – proper (in its natural colours).Jane Leaper of Alberta, Canada, points out that the Council of Trent cannot have granted the Blatherwick coat of arms.� The Council was actually held in Trentino Italy (Trent is the English name for Trentino) and the Council� was held to resolve problems in the Roman Catholic church.� It did not grant arms, and would have had no power to grant arms to an English family anyway.� So, I rather think the Sheffield Blatherwicks were the victims of a Victorian con-man; something which�is interesting in itself.� (Jane is descended from Ann Blatherwick, born Carlton, Nottingham, in 1790). John & Maria Blatherwick had 7 children:-

Harold Nelson Blatherwick (eldest son of above) married at St Marks Church, Sheffield, to Marion Searles. One child – Ronald Blatherwick John Bertram Blatherwick (youngest son of John & Maria above) borm 19 May 1878. – This information supplied by Kate E.

Many kind words which I really enjoy and appreciate from people that have contacted me. It has intrigues me, something that makes me want to look into who is buried and history going back to 1856, which has been fascinating.

Our beautiful and historic Newark Cemetery, London Road, Newark, Nottinghamshire for over 150 years since 1856. This memorial website is Laurence Goff personal views, I have put it together and do not represent Newark Town Council . It dedicated to the thousands of  people since 1856.  Many are happy to have a resting place at Newark Cemetery for all to see and view. Having a means of further promoting Newark cemetery, and encouraging interested people to join the tribute.
