Blunt surname facts
Since I'm researching the Blunt surname it may be helpful to know where the highest density of Blunts where in the UK in approximately 1890's. Highest density is Northants (9% of total), Kent(8%) and Lancashire(7%). The Midlands, Yorks and Essex and Sussex come next with somewhere between 3% and 6%, and the rest of England and Wales with 1% or less.
I started to collect as many Blunt families as I could find and put them on one or two pages. Strangely they seem to be in the West Midlands in the 1861 and 1881 census. Maybe they all got together after this and decided to spread their wings.

If anyone knows of any more get in touch and I'll add them to one of those pages.
