Then you could try the Principal Surname List which is
We are often asked by family historians if a surname of interest to
them has been identified in one of the books published by TVP. In response,
we have generated an alphabetical list of surnames that appear in one or
more books produced by TVP. The list follows. It is noted that this list
doesn't include all of the names in the books (some of the books have over
9,000 names included), rather it lists only those names that were
prominently or repeatedly mentioned. TVP updates this list quarterly. A
cross-reference to the book containing the surname follows each surname
listed. This cross reference is the book identification number from the
preceding book list.

I don't think this is him, but you never know
