Our One Name Study started with our fascination about the surname CULPIN. It seemed to us such a rare name and then we came across the theory that we might just have a name that originated from a small area of the country and that intrigued us.
The Guild of One Name Studies says….‘A one-name (or surname) study is a project researching all occurrences of a surname, as opposed to a particular pedigree (ancestors of one person) or descendancy (descendants of one person or couple)’
We are collecting occurrences of the name, trying to establish patterns and critically aiming to discover what we can of its origins. This website aims to show some of our research but if you have information that you would like to contribute to the study, do contact us.
