If you are the gentleman from Africa that is where humans originated some 80,000 years ago according to DNA. There were no set spellings for surnames even in the 19th Century when many were still illiterate. So, surnames were spelled according to how it sounded to those who could write. In the 1600s & 1700s it was not uncommon to find a surname spelled differently in just one document. I have found Alsobrook spelled Alsbrook/Allsbrook as well as the other spellings mentioned in the forum. Regards, Virgil W.Huntley
