Distribution of Fitch surnames in the UK

October 29, 2006

A University College London research project investigated the distribution of surnames in Great Britain, both current and historic, in order to understand patterns of regional economic development, population movement and cultural identity. This website allows users to search the databases to trace the geography and history of their family names.
