Trace your surname

Very intresting,my surname is very common in durham and newcastle in 1881 and that has hardly changed. Maybe thats why no one down here can pronoce it properly

I am English through and through despite having what would be considered to be a welsh surname....apparently accordng to the survey very predominant in North Wales......at least I have an explanation now for my webbed feet...I'd assumed it was severe athlete's foot :twisted: :twisted:
 
Suffolk, the West Country and South Wales (that's a surprise). Most of us are, not surprisingly, concentrated (purple) in Devon. Not to mention the various parts of Africa where many of my relatives are Missionaries, or, er, the RN itself! :oops: :lol: Yes, one of your senior Padre's is a distant relative! :oops: :oops: :oops:
 
A little surprised to see that my surname isn't mostly found in the town of the same name, whereas Boyfriend's is.
Interesting link, thanks.

Damn!!! :p 99.75 % English. So proud. I can trace my family back to the 1700's, and they all come from within 20 miles of where I am now. But thats not what that map shows?

Went with my Granddad's surname, very interesting in deed - mostly ranging in the Black Isles area in 1881, which would tie greatly into the family. 1998, it hasn't changed much at all.

I'm denying everything, I am not a Celt (did I spell that right?), or Welsh. Though as I was born in Ludlow I suppose I should expect a bit of central Wales or the Welsh Marches to have seeped through.

However the pronunciation I get from various Call centres looking to trick me into their plan, I think I may have a touch of Malt in there. :oops:

I will move this thread to the 'social' forum; seems more fitting.
