Excerpt from Surnames
The volume now offered to those who were kind enough to be interested in my Romance of Names is a second offshoot of the Dictionary of English Surnames on which I have been engaged for some years. It differs in several ways from the former booklet. The Romance of Names was an attempt at a general survey of the subject, and, like all such first attempts, it contained a good many inaccuracies and dubious statements' of which I have tried to purge later editions. It made no special attempt to deal with the curiosities of surname etymology, and the temptation to explore by-ways was firmly resisted.
