Hello,
Im an Alcorn, born in NW England, but recently moved to Scotland. It's quite cool, as i live in Edinburgh, and there's a street named Alcorn Terrace!
Im not used to seeing so many alcorns gathered in one place! In my experience, we're quite a minority.
The most i know is that the alcorn side of my family (at least a couple of generations back) is from scotland... but ive heard so much conflicting claims about it being irish or english.
Mildly curious to say the least. Still, I wouldn't part with this surname!
Tim.
PS... did anyone else get called 'acorn' or 'cone-head' at school? lol!
