    Re: Eccles Rant - No Answers?

    Not necessarily, from Gaelic "eccles" is a common locative which also
    shows up in the place, "Glen Eagles" (valley of the churches). This
    word is related to the Greek "eccleiastes", and the words eglesia,
    ysglecia, and esglesia in Spain. A part of the problem is the
    indifferent use of apostrophies in some place names. Not saying that
    it could not be a surname, but it is a common place name, or part of
    one, in the UK.
