Tom Greathead to a fellow tourist.
Yes Sir! We are a very ancient family. That is the bust of one of my earliest ancestors
surname GREATHEAD seems to mean just that; someone
with a remarkably large head, in the real or perhaps colloquial sense, or
maybe they enjoyed rather a large ego. I like to think maybe the
large head contains brains used to achieve whatever we choose to do. I
heard from a contact in USA that they had heard the Greathead's derived
their name from living on a Great Headland, presumably near the sea.
Now there's a thought!!!
The name of Greathead corresponds to the French GrossÍte and the German Groeskopf.
My maiden name was GREATHEAD and I am attempting a One-Name Study on the name of GREATHEAD. This will include eventually everyone who enjoyed the name by birth, adoption, marriage or by choice, both living and dead.
I am keen to contact all GREATHEAD's and anyone related to them. If you can help or want to research any particular chart with me do let ME know.
