ThatsMyNameStillNotMyJob Photo The census system in olden times often recorded a person's given name, and then their profession or possibly their homesite. Over time, Bob, the baker, or Bill, who lives on the hill, became Bob Baker or Bill Hill. England is full of families bearing job or place names as their surnames. This quiz is simply a look at ten people, real or fictional, with names of the aforementioned type.

The sketch is Ian Fleming's vision of how James Bond looked.

Another great quiz, Tuzz! I didn't think I would do better than 50
%, but I guess I knew more about these people than I thought. Keep up the great, if not difficult, work. Love it and you!
