The probably wont be of any interest to you at all but tonight I researched the derivation of my surname and came across your request. I know very little of my ancestry because my grandfather was very secretive!! however, I have 2 brothers Robert and Martin born 1959 and 1964 respectively . My father was Robert born 1936 and my grandfather was Sidney born around 1909. I believe there is a connection some where in Derbyshire but I have no further information about this. sorry, hope this helps!!!!!!!
