A Huddersfield Miscellany by George Redmonds


Acknowledged widely as the world's leading authority on surnames, George was local to our area.  In the course of researching archives for over 50 years, he amassed a huge amount of information on other topics, such as place-names and words.  He died in 2018, leaving much of his work unpublished.

This book is a collection of articles relating to the local history of Huddersfield and the region.  In some cases he didn't complete writing the article so his wife, Ann-marie, and David Shore have included references from his card index system, which he prepared before composing a piece, not just because they are interesting in their own right, but so that future historians can continue the work.
