"In an extensive introduction E.R. Seary discusses the historic and linguistic origins of Newfoundland surnames and their cultural sources - notably English, Welsh, Irish, Scottish, French, Syrian, Lebanese, and Micmac. The body of the work is a dictionary of family names, which includes variant spellings and cross-references, countries of origin, and meaning. Newfoundland's most common surnames and places named after families are also identified." "Originally published in 1977, this edition has been completely reset and incorporates additions and corrections."--BOOK JACKET.
