I only saw the discussion on SCAHRLDS under "The Soldier in Later Medieval England" (Which is how I know it) rather than the Agincourt title Mistress Hilary used.
Hopefully, the surnames will stand, as Rosenfeld used it in an ILoI recently closed for commentary.  Bookmarked it two years ago as it's one of the few on-line English surname sources I've seen.

I thought I'd posted on the Ansteorran list about these.

One of their pages claims that they normalized the names -- that is,
standardized on modern spellings.  Another says that they normalized
only the given names, leaving surnames alone.  Someone who did a
little searching suggested that the surnames were indeed left intact.
I'm still a little suspicious.
