Magnorum haud umquam indignus avorum - Vergil
reetings! This is a web site for Alefounder genealogical research. I estimate that there are about 130 individuals with this surname throughout the world, mainly in England but with a few in America, Canada, New Zealand and (as far as I am aware) one in Australia. My guess (and that is all it is) is that the name in all its various spellings has been used by fewer than 2500 people since hereditary surnames came into general use in England in the last quarter of the twelfth century.
