Where Did Your Surname Come From?

Do you know where your surname comes from, or how many people you share it with? To find out more about your history, click on 'Search for Surname' and you will open the National Trust Names website which presents the findings of a project based at University College London (UCL) that is investigating the distribution of surnames in Great Britain, both current and historic. It allows users to search the databases that we have created, and to trace the geography and history of their family names. On each page of the website, you will find a Help link on the top-right corner which We hope will answer any questions you might have.
