My family name is Sirugo. I live in Sweden.
The name is Italian (my father) - but it originates from England way back in the 14th century when a noble man went to Siciliy on vacation, met a woman and never went back.

His name was Sir Hugo. He dropped the H and put the remaining parts together.
Now the fact that he was noble opens some doors, I believe.
I'm hoping that there are resources in the UK that makes it possible to trace exactly which Sir Hugo I'm looking for. And it might even be possible to trace roots even further with that knowledge.

But being a Swede I don't have any idea at all of where to start searching for those noble roots.
Is there any sources to be found where their destinies are documented?
