Name Meaning

English: perhaps a habitational name from an unidentified place, the last element of which could be Old English dūn ‘hill’. Without early forms, it is impossible even to speculate what the first element might be. The surname is extremely common in Lancashire, especially in the Manchester area, where it was first recorded in the 14th century.
