Edwards in the UK

Interestingly enough, after I finished writing about the distribution of Edwards in America I just happened across a site called Surname Profiler that provided me with similar data for the UK. This site is not subcription-based so everyone can access it. It is based on a research project at University College London. You can read more details about the project on the website.

Not surprisingly both the 1881 and 1998 distribution of the surname Edwards is concentrated in Wales and the English Counties surrounding Wales.

1881
























The counties in purple and red with the highest conecentration of the surname Edwards are all in Wales with the exception of one little red county to the right.

1998

.






















Not much changes in 1998 except that there is even heavier concentration throughout all of Wales and some expected spreading throughout England
