Sorry I couldn't find the exact "who", but I'm done looking. The sites coming up are way too weird!
Blackjack originated in French casinos around 1700 and is probably descended from 'chemin de fer'. It was originally called 'vingt et un' (21 in English). It reached the United States in the 19th century.
