This is an old Jersey Channel Island name, also linked with Canada where the Jersey boat men used to sail. There is also a link with the North American Indians, e.g. Blanc-Pied or White Foot, although that sounds more French. Alan’s great grandfather Elias Blampied was born in Canada in 1851.

The Internet Surname Database talks about the French (and Channel Islands) connection.
