Did you know...?

- The first Speaker of the House of Commons was Sir Thomas Hungerford in 1377.

- The use of surnames started by 1300, but there was no consistency in spelling. Surnames were not always used, nor invariably passed from parent to child. Different surnames for the same individual could be used in different contexts. Even a fairly distinctive surname may be difficult to trace until the 17th century.
