5518Re: [Stonehaven] Surname Origin
- Dec 15, 2005Hi Liz,
I've looked up the Oxford Surnames
Arrant: not there
Broughton: English [from many placenames]
---[From a) Ghent in , or
---(b) gaunt appearance, or
---(c) Gant (glove) - French
Thigpen: not there.
Hope this helps
I am a new member looking for help to determine
if the following surnames have a Scottish origin.
Arrant, Broughton, Gaunt and Thigpen are the
surnames I need help with. I have not seen these
names mentioned here within the files, links, or
database, so I doubt there is a Scottish connection.
I ask for advice as to where I should go to
research this further.
