More intriguing names on Framlingham headstones!

More intriguing names on Framlingham headstones!

I was recently reading a newspaper article about disappearing surnames in the UK and I have been intrigued to see unusual Christian names on headstones that have also disapperaed from use such as Eustace and Lancelot on the headstone shown in this photograph.

I feel some research and investigating of another Framlingham family coming on!

I would be interested to hear from others with unusual Christian names that they have found in their research that have also disappeared from common use.

Thanks

Simon
