    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 .

    It wouldn't suprise me if it was a Polish name.

    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.
