Surname Distribution

I find the meanings of names very interesting. Especially, my own names and surnames in my family tree.

Today, I have been looking at meanings of some of the surnames in my family tree. In the process of this I  discovered an exciting webpage where you can search the distributions of surnames in England from the 1891 census.

Check it

I was fascinated to find only 72 families with the surname Presswood (my maternal grandmother's maiden name) in the whole of England and Wales in 1891!!  For more information about my Presswood family, take a look at my Presswood family page.
