A One-Name Study for the BARNUM/BARNHAM Surname

Notes for William LOWFIELD

He was a citizen and draper; freed from his apprenticeship in 1632.
He was buried at Islington. Islington is an inner-city district in north London. The area usually referred to as Islington is now part of the London Borough of Islington to which it gave its name. Islington is not a true '-ington' name, like Paddington. The name means 'Gisla's hill' from the Old English personal name Gisla and dun 'hill', 'down'. Records of the name in early sources prove this: Giseldone (1005), Gislandune (1062).
