Discovering Surnames - Their Origins and Meanings

Author: J.W. Freeman
 
About this book
Your surname can tell you a lot about your ancestors. Not all names are what they at first sight seem to be: if your name is Farmer, then an ancestor was a tax-collector; if it is Alabaster, then you are descended from a crossbowman. This work includes about 1500 surnames, and if your name is not amongst them then probably a very similar one is.
