    Western Isles in both years. By quite a significant amount.
    Ditto, not exactly surprising though. 50% more common in Canada apparantly...

    "There were no results found for your selection. There needed to be at least 100 people with the name on the Electoral Register in 1998 to be in the database. We are hoping to add these missing names at a later date." :-(

    I feel your pain.

    It's on the 1881 one though, where people can be found with my surname in such exciting places as Ilford, Chelmsford, Slough, Motherwell and Dumfries. A couple of others.


    It's an Irish surname which is also common-ish in the US, but I think I'm related to all of them in the UK.

    Paisley, Scotland. I'd have thought it'd be Perth, but there you go.
