Family Facts

With Family Facts, you can learn a lot from your surname – from where it came from to what it actually means. Just type in your surname, and off you go. Every time you find a fact, we’ll tell you what it means. We’ll also tell you how to search for more information using the resources at Ancestry.co.uk.

For example, did you know that ‘Turner’ means a maker of wooden, bone or metal objects? Nearly 30% of all Turners in England and Wales were living in either Lancashire or Yorkshire around the turn of the 20th Century. Find family facts here.
