Many Irish Blakes descend from those who came in to Ireland with Strongbow (Richard de Clare II) to conquer the Celts. They were part of the Tribes of Ireland (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tribes_of_Galway), and are still notable in Ireland today. My ancestors descend from this family through Richard Caddell (http://www.galway-ireland.ie/blake.htm). My cousin has written a book on our line and documented it very well.
My Blake family apparently came from Co Clare Ireland, immigrated to Canada, and then established permanent residence in Detroit.
