For anyone interested in tracing a family name or family history in England, this is the standard guide. It covers the origin and meaning of over 16,000 surnames, giving detailed information on early name-forms and how names have changed over the centuries. Alternative forms of names arecross-referenced to make it easy to find variants. An authoritative introduction sets in context the popular topic of name-studies, and guides the reader through the history and linguistic background of English surnames. In a new appendix for this revised edition, the distinguished family historian,Professor David Hey (author of the new Oxford Companion to Local and Family History), gives guidelines on how to go about the business of tracing the history of a name, to give you practical advice about sources of information.
