The first thing they learn is that, as the study of a place starts with its name, the study of a family starts with its surname. This is the first clue to identity. It is with these considerations in mind that Sir William Addison has written the present book. Although the meaning of many surnames--Smith, Archer, Baker, Fisher-is self-evident, it remains true that of the 100, 000 names in daily use in the British Isles not more than a quarter have had their derivation satisfactorily explained. Often enough the origin is far from obvious. Who would guess, for example, that Fazackerley means border strip, that Tennyson is a corruption of `son of Denis', that Ollerenshaw means elder wood, or that the significance of Sidebotham is geographic rather than anatomic? These are some of the surprises which the work contains. The arrangement, by areas such as Wessex, the North, the Eastern Kingdoms, and so on, increases the books usefulness since its readers will naturally be most interested in that part of England with which they are themselves associated. As Sir William is concerned with the principles of surname derivation the book also provides a measure of do-it-yourself guidance in an admittedly tricky study. Sir William Addison, JP, DL, FSA, is author of, amongst other works, Understanding English Place-Names (Batsford).
