Welcome to the Walne One-Name Study (ONS).

This site launched on 1 January 2017. Over time I hope it will grow to provide information about the families with the surname Walne (often transcribed as Woan, Whone, Woln, Waun and other variants) and eventually information about the name’s origins. For more information, see the ‘About‘ page.

First steps include an analysis of the 1911 census and the creation of this site. Updates will appear in due course.

For now the most active part of the site will be the blog. My personal blog will no longer contain ONS material. I hope you enjoy looking around.

Update 2019: I just had two babies in two years! It is perhaps no surprise therefore that there have been few updates on this site for a while. I still reply to email but activity will hopefully increase again as my children get bigger.
