Size of the task

There aren't too many of us with the Gunnee name. From the current records, such as telephone records and Electoral Rolls, I would estimate that there are around 80 Gunnees living in the UK. There are only a few occurrences of the name abroad, with Gunnees in Australia and Mauritius.

Within the UK the majority of Gunnees live in the Yorkshire area. My earliest records have Gunnee families in the Hull and Thorne areas. Although I haven't been able to fit all the information together, the signs are that anyone with the surname Gunnee will be related to the rest of the clan.

This does at least my task easier, as the list of entries which I need to collect from census records, births, marriages & deaths etc. is relatively easy to complete.
