Origins of Angel Surnames: Accuracy in Historical Fiction Writing

In the course of writing Angel of Mercy, I did some research into the origin of the family’s surnames.  (This post is a companion piece to my WWI Trilogy, Angel of Mercy, Those Left Behind and Adjustment Year, available wherever eBooks are sold.)

This is what I found out:

Bartlette – English with some pockets in Scotland

Steward – Scottish-English

Goodwin – English

Grey – Anglo-Saxon

Taylor – English with French origins

Winthrop – from Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire

Appleton – a locational name referring to any of several English towns named Appleton

Hill – English

Morris – English and French
