In my research for the SOUTHERN family around Much Wenlock (1558-1849)I have come across many entries with the surname "SOTHERN alias ATKYS." This mostly in the period 1587 to around 1623

These are certified listings are from the Register of the Parish Church of The Holy Trinity, Much Wenlock.

Does anybody know of and or understand what ATKYS means in this context?
