The beeb, have an interesting little story about a website run by UCL (University Collage London) , that shows the migration of surnames. When the site isn’t falling over with load you type in the surname, and you get pictures showing you the spread of the surname, in 1881, and again in 1998. So of course when you’re like me and your distancing yourself from your given name, you type in your current surname. Below are the 1881 locations for the Jumps and the 1998 locations, darker colours mean there where/are more of them.
JUMP in 1881
JUMP in 1998
What struck me, is the incredibly small area the name covers, this should in theory make family history easier.
