This site is concerned  with the "Attwood One Name Study", a  study, registered with the Guild of One Name Studies (reg. no. 4602), aimed at  the collection of all references to the surname and its variations worldwide, with the aim of establishing origins and distribution. My research is in its early stages, the majority of data currently held is predominantly concerned with England, I am happy to exchange information with fellow researchers, bearing in mind the current limited geographical location. Please note also that I am not researching individual family trees - and do not hold data relating to individual genealogies.

If you have an interest in the surname Attwood or have any information to contribute to the One Name Study - please contact me or leave a note in my Guest Book.
