Cutlock or Laddiman most exclusive in 1891?

I’m reminded that Cutlock isn’t the only rare name in the family tree, at least as judged by the Ancestry website surname look-up feature. This uses the 1891 census records (England and Wales), showing a distribution map at county level (of people, not families as it states).

Cutlock – 10 people, all in Norfolk. The one who was born in London has married in.

Laddiman – 9 people, all in Norfolk.*

I have the impression that there are now more Laddimans than Cutlocks, given the prevalence of female offspring in the latter.

Any bidders for greater exclusivity at 1891 (excluding transcription/spelling errors, please!)?

* Laddiman on the other hand is clearly connected to variations on the name Liddiman, and also Liddiment (need to find my notes on that last one).

    I would love to discuss further with you the strong Liddiment/Laddiman connection, my 5 times great grandfather was George Laddiman born 1749

    Hi Neil
    Thanks for the message. I’ll send a further note to your email address tomorrow, but are you by any chance the person who has a Liddiment tree on Ancestry World Tree? I downloaded a Gedcom file from there a couple of years ago and I see that it contains the George Laddiman you mention.

Have something to add?
