Full description for The Surnames of Scotland
For over fifty years this book is now firmly established as the great classic work on the origin, meaning and history of Scottish surnames. The core of the book is the remarkable listing of over 8,000 names, each with a concise history and cross-references. It remains an accessible and indispensable tool for genealogists, historians, or indeed anyone with a general interest in Scotland. This monumental reference book is the product of over forty years' research, which was put in order shortly after the author's retirement. Despite various attempts to publish it during the late 1930s, it was published finally in 1946 by the New York public Library and has remained in print ever since.
