Institute for Name-Studies

English Place-Name Society

The EPNS was founded in 1923 in order to carry out the Survey of English Place‑Names. It has now published more than 80 volumes in the Survey, and is established as a substantial scholarly society of international standing.

In recent years the EPNS has also published a range of volumes supplementary to the Survey, including the annual Journal, which first appeared in 1969. Here is a brief account of EPNS history.
