Using census and other sources, we extract mostly current surname frequencies in different areas.  See the sources for information down to county / municipality areas that is available in some locales.

SurnameUSA RankUSA #UK RankUK # OccurSoundex
Hoar  15,9101,6785,666   899H600
Horr  34,071   630    --    --H600
Hoare  34,969   611   8726,981H600

Hore104,257   1597,201   659H600
Harr   5,7925,466    --    --H600
Hoard   7,9913,836    **    --H630
Hord   8,6743,490    --    --H630
Notes: '--' in UK had no data as was statistically too small to disclose.  USA minimum cutoff was 100 people because they did not give a breakdown smaller than whole country level.  UK site provides a breakdown at the county level for each surname. '**' some use seen in Wales and Exeter in 1895 census.

1898 UK Census Surnames also available at the same link above.

WorldNames provides maps with rough data ranges displayed down to a county / district level across many locations in the world.  Useful to see where you may likely find common surname descendants today.
