Homes of Family Names in Great Britain
Media: DATA CD - 1 CD (675 pages)
Author: H. Guppy
This is a study if the distribution of family names over Great Britain. It begins with English names, providing a listing in alphabetical order of general, common and regional names. General names occur in from 30-40 counties. Common names in from 20-29 counties, and regional names from 10-19 counties. Within those divisions, each name is presented with information on its spread and on variations of the name. These three sections are followed by a section on names particular or peculiar to a single county. Then there are separate chapters providing much of the same type of information on Welsh and Scottish names. However, the principal focus is on names found in England.
