The name VOSS

This section of the Antipole genealogy pages covers the name VOSS in general, and not just my family.

Wine from the Voss vineyard, Matinsborough, New Zealand /There is also a Voss vineyard in the USA

It describes its occurrence in northern Gemany and neighbouring countries, and especially the British name VOSS, which, I conclude, has origins distinct from the German name.

See the sub-headings in the menu Name VOSS above.

There are pages on the Vosses of Dorset (my own line).

I would be interested in including equivalent pages for other regional groupings, especially Leicestershire and places where the name has been significant in the past, e.g. Glamorgan, Essex and Scotland.  If you have material to contribute, please contact me.

There are two  RootsWeb email lists dedicated to the name VOSS.
