The question of surnames, their origins, distribution and history, lies at the heart of genealogy as well as being fascinating in its own right.
In the 1980s and 1990s, long before many genealogical sources were even indexed, let alone online, our Surname Report service provided expert assessments of the origins, history and distribution of selected British surnames, using the sources available at the time.
Now, with so many more sources available, we believe that these reports retain their value as studies of individual surnames, and so we are gradually making the Debrett Surname Archive available via Amazon as inexpensive paperbacks and e-books. Some modern indexes have been consulted to refresh and update the reports.
These are studies of the surname only, not family histories. Other titles being added soon. Please check back for updates.
