This exchange about Mac - Mc name changes sparked an idea about one of my
brick walls, Edward Loyd Neil.
Edward was b. in Boston, Mass. 24 Jul 1815, according to family records.. I
do not know his parent's names, & have not located any confirmation for his
date or place of birth. He married Adelaide Antoinette Esther Kaufman in
Halifax, Nova Scotia 12 Sep 1846.
Does the spelling of the names - Loyd and Neil - with the single "L",
signify anything? Is it a common spelling in Ireland or Scotland? and would
it likely have once been McNeil or MacNeil?
Thanks for any suggestions.
