Married name - only 6 of them and I know them all!

Fagan 4838 1650th
Fildes 919 =7080th
Bridge 8796 884th
Speakman 2694 =2850th
Turner 131091 27th
Daly 15514 479yh
Daley 9176 841th.

Interesting on the Fildes one, I was wondering why there are never many postings on this name.  Variants on it are also not very common Fields 3115 =2493th, Files 138 =26999th.

I had a rare name called HUSTHWAITE with ranked 55026 as there was a count of only 44.

On the other hand my direct line ROWLEY ranked 448 and counted 16183, only slightly lower than PRATT ranked 404 and counted 18255.  Not bad going, though I also rank first with SMITH with 652563! followed by JONES second with 538874.  Do I have the record?  Who is last in the rankings?

Cheers
