A Goodreads user asked John Ironmonger:

Where does the name Ironmonger originate?

John Ironmonger I can only assume that my ancestors sold iron. I've never gotten around to tracing the family tree. I believe it was a traditional English name - and I know there are 'Iremongers' around too, whose ancestors presumably sold ire. Maybe some genealogists out there can help with this one...?
