I would GUESS that they would probably be surnames based or rooted in place
names, like my own maiden name of BRAMHALL. The only other place I have
found that to be reasonably common is Sheffield. The rest seem to be all
Lancashire and Cheshire. I'm sure there must be someone out there who knows
lots more!
