Innous

I have come across this unusual surname whilst helping with my brother-in-laws family tree. His family seem to have been in the east end of London during the early 1800's. Can any one help with the origin of the name?

There are a couple of Innous surnames on Facebook. Have you tried contacting them to ask if they know where their name comes from?

Good idea Victor will give it a try.

It is a very limited name from the City of London and Essex going back to the late 17th century according to The National Archives and ancestry. According to ancestry it is the only place they are. I wonder if the English Civil War records might hold some information and also the Essex Record Office although the name doesn't appear on their indexes, but that doesn't mean they aren't there.

Thanks for the suggestion Junkers, I wonder whether it is a name which has occurred due to literacy issues at some time in the 19th century. I have made up a chart of six family groups from around 1800's but there are few records for any prior to this.
