The Origins of English Surnames

Surnames carry the history of people in a very personal way. This book examines the pre-14th-century origins of English surnames, from occupational, locational and symbolic names to nicknames and names from the Continent, and explores what these say about the society that created them at a time when land-based feudalism was crumbling and people sought better lives. Where genealogists and etymologists focus on single names, this book takes groups of names and explores what these say about the society that created them; revealing the way they spoke, the jokes they made, and their memories of ancient cultures
