Aaagh!! Hill = 123,331, ranking is 30!!
Mum's maiden name Hopkins = 32,592, ranking is 197. Not too bad, I guess.

Having two out of four HIGH ranking key surnames is made up for having the other two being LOW ranking:

Grandma's maiden name Fereday = 1184, ranking is 5777.
Nan's maiden name (BTW, my Nan is German) Foelke = 'No records were found'.

- That's more like it ;D

Ryan is researching:
HILL/BURKE/BELCHER/BIGNELL/BLAKE/YELDHAM in London
HOPKINS/HART/MATTHEWS/MUNSON in Devon
FEREDAY

MUSCUTT/ELSBY/BRIDGENS/BURKE/BELL/ADAMS/RAINBOW in Stoke-on-Trent
BURKE/O’CALLAGHAN/CONNOLLY/FITZPATRICK in Ireland
HOPKINS/ADAMS/DOWDING/TROWBRIDGE in Shaftesbury
YELDHAM/RAVEN/MUNSON/BIGNELL in Essex
