I'm going through the records of the poll taxes of 1377, 1379 and 1381 (don't ask). Now, I guess I was half expecting names like Richard Bastard, and even John Shitte (and his wife, and son—John Shitte jr—I mean, like it wasn't enough to have that as a surname, without forcing him to have the 'junior' bit afterwards). But I've just come across my absolute favourite so far: William Bolloc (he has a relation called Geoffrey Bollok in the same village). They just don't do names like that any more. Wonder why?
