I dropped across this site Names & Areas which shows the amount of people with a particular surname in 1998 and 1881. So you can enter your own surname and discover how far your ancestors have spread and the areas they came from, most likely.

Discovered that my father's family name has been in the Westcountry for the most part. Which is no real surprise. And my mother's is from the North: she's a Yorkshire lass herself, no surprises there either.
