The Surnames of WalesBook - 2014
First published in 1996, The Surnames of Wales has long been regarded an indispensable guide to this most fascinating of verbal and historical minefields. This new updated and expanded edition seeks to dispel many of the myths which surround the subject and is illustrated by evidence taken from a survey involving more than 270,000 surnames found in parish records throughout Wales. In addition, it has been extended to cover given names, drawing upon examples recorded in ancient pedigrees and in more recent family history research.
