    That would be interesting to know. Wonder if it's something like Jones or Smith

    A random survey it would appear to be Jones, just went to 118.com and input Smith and Jones for 3 different L postcodes (L13 L16 L25) - Jones was clearly the most popular in each one

    Hiya Everyone
    I havn't got a single Smith or Jones in my tree . At least it's made searching for ancestors that bit easier .

    I'm surprised people In Liverpool find my surname hard to pronounce!

    Isn't Molyneux supposed to be a well known Liverpool surname?

    I've got Burns and Dugans In my tree but dunno any of them.

    There were loads of Jones' in Gerard Gardens when I lived there and 3 with the christian name George in fact. I still know a few and would have gone along with that.

    There's one off Shiel Road but although a well known family of Liverpool old, I don't think there are that many Molyneux around now.

    ps. According to my A-Z there are 12 Molyneux thoroughfares whether they be Ave, Clo, Ct, Dr, Rd, way etc but no street.

    Default the jones,s

    Mandy I,m afraid the Jones, have infiltrated our family too. When I was working in Button Street back in the 60s I had a mate called Eric Jones and in my last job in Drury Lane I had another pal called Eric Jones 25 years apart. Don,t know if they were related or not but they weren,t Welsh but broad Scouse.

    No Smiths or Jones in my family tree, but there was an Elizabeth Taylor in the 1700s.
    Any "famous" names in other people's families?
