This classic work is a dictionary of families, listed alphabetically, who are of Norman descent. Each entry gives place of settlement, origin, and meaning of the name, progenitor (when possible), as well as sites originally and later settled by the family. Introductory chapters lay the historical foundation of the ethnic make-up of Britain before the Norman invasions and the impact of the Normans upon the overall British population. Finally, there is an extensive index (over 5000 entries) of medieval surnames. There is a wealth of information here for the researcher and genealogist.

    I'm doing research on Norman families and this book is an excellent addition to my research which has mainly been through English History Online and various books.
