The Plant Name - UK Distibution - 1842-46 Deaths

The distribution of Plant deaths, as recorded in the UK Civil Registers for 1842-6, indicates that this name was concentrated in Staffordshire and its adjoining counties, as well as in Lancashire to the north of Cheshire. This is also evidence of migration to London. There is only slight evidence, however, for the remnants of an earlier secondary cluster in Lincolnshire.
