ELIZABETH Family HistorySince Medieval times and certainly since the first Queen Elizabeth (1558 - 1603), this has been the most popular girls name in English history. It is therefore perhaps surprising that the surname equivalent is very rare. None of the published dictionaries of surnames record it at all, whilst widely recording for instance the name Marie, Maria, or Mary, in some hundred surname forms. The diminutive as Marriott is probably the most popular English spelling. We believe that the reasons are two fold. Firstly surnames from female or mothers names (metronymics), are in general much rarer than surnames from male names (patronymics)...
