In March 2017, I did a review of potential web sites that I’d noted by doing a top-level searches. I looked for each of the seven Chadbourne variations included in my one-name study and logged the number of hits for each one. As a result I now have a database with over 150 web sites and sub-sites matching at least one of the names. On some of the bigger databases, I checked separately for different sets of data, hence the term “sub-sites”.

To give a flavour of the results and a “starter for ten” for you to do your own searches, here are the top 10 for each variant. I’ll gladly provide more information from my database if needed.
