Family Names and Their Story free pdf Excerpt from Family Names and Their Story Mr. M. A. Lower was the first in modern times to break ground in the domain of family nomenclature - in 1842, when he published his first edition of "English Surnames." There were in it many mistakes, and the work was tentative. A better book of his was "Patronymica Britannica," a dictionary of family names that appeared in 1860. But the share of scientific research first entered the soil with Canon Isaac Taylor's "Words and Places," 1864. Since then there have been various works on the subject, some good, some bad, some instructive, others misleading- there have been treatises on Irish and Scottish, and on particular county names. Mr. R. Ferguson, in his "English Surnames and their Place in the Teutonic Family," 1858, and "Surnames as a Science," 1883, and "The Teutonic Name-System applied to Family Names in France, England, and Germany," 1864, went too far in deriving most surnames from Teutonic roots, led thereto by Forstemann's "Altdeutsches Namenbuch" (Nordhausen, 1856), a vast work that has been condensed by Heintze in "Die Deutschen Familiennamen" (Halle, 1882).
