Matchett - Midlands, Leics/Notts/Derbys borders - Shardlow Russell - big difference here two centres Lanarkshire & Isle of Wight going by your other names I assume you are interested in the Scottish lot Dick - Lanarkshire, Midlothian, Fifeshire Armour - Lanarkshire, Ayrshire McFarland - Lanarkshire, Renfrewshire ( Lancs - W. Derby) *note the data on Scotland is based purely on 1881 census there is no Poor Union information

Hi Ken, Could you check; Magness Farmer Rogers ( too common? ) for me please? Thankyou Sharon xx


Erikoinen Report 16 Apr 2006 13:46

Field - 3 areas Middx/Surrey (Islington & Wandsworth), Warwickshire (Birmingham & Aston), West Riding (Dewsbury) Green- too widespread to narrow down, draw a line from Blackpool to Kingston anywhere south of there probably midlands ( def not Wales or West Country) Crane - East Anglia - Suffolk - Woodbridge poss. Uttley - draw a triangle between Burnley, Halifax and Rochdale - Todmorden at centre Winter - too widespread again ( definitely English, not W. Country) Frizzelle - interesting not enough to form opinion (Dudley) but looked at alternatives Frizzel - Roxburghshire Frizzell - Blandford, Dorset Frizell - Wigton, Cumberland


Erikoinen Report 16 Apr 2006 14:01

Magness - southern Welsh borders - Herefordshire - Hereford, Weobley (& Hay) Farmer - Midlands probably, S.East possibly Rodgers - anything below a line from Flint thru Staffs, Northants to Essex, if pushed for location would say Denbigh and Shropshire - Wrexham

Hampson - Lancs, Bolton Crowder - At firdt glance Bakewell and Macclesfiefd, but would not rule out Wem (Salops) only 20 instances but percentage of population is high Fothergill - had expected this to be Yorkshire which proved out West Riding, Dewsbury (East Ward, Westmoreland) Lawrenson & Pinnington - almost exclusive to Lancs, Prescot and to lesser extent W. Derby
