Surnames

 

   This website is located under the National Trust banner, it is based on a project undertaken by University College London investigating the distribution of surnames in Great Britain, both current and historic. There are plans for an international version of the database, but no time for it’s completion has been given.

I’ve found this site unexpectedly helpful in given me clues on where to look next.
