World Events (8)

1754 · Seven Years' War
Age 1
The Seven Years' War began as a North American conflict then stretched between England and France. England, along with allies, battled France in America, India, and Europe, making it arguably the first global war. The conflict ended with the signing of the Treaty of Paris in 1763 and England was victorious. The Seven Years' war ultimately led to discontent in the colonies and the American Revolution.
1770 · Boston Tea Party
Age 17
Thousands of British troops were sent to Boston to enforce Britain's tax laws. Taxes were repealed on all imports to the American Colonies except tea. Americans, disguised as Native Americans, dumped chests of tea imported by the East India Company into the Boston Harbor in protest. This escalated tensions between the American Colonies and the British government.
1775 · The Shot Heard Around the World
Age 22
"On April 18, 1775, a shot known as the ""shot heard around the world"" was fired between American colonists and British troops in Lexington, Massachusetts. This began the American War for Independence. Fifteen months later, Thomas Jefferson penned the Declaration of Independence. The Treaty of Paris was signed in September 1783 which ended the war. The colonies were no longer under British rule. Many who fought for the British fled to Canada, the West Indies, and some to England."

Name Meaning

English: of uncertain origin; apparently from an unidentified place in or near north-west Berks, formed with a name containing Old English frogga ‘frog’ + lēah ‘woodland clearing’. However, no medieval forms have been found, and no such place-name has been noted in Berks or adjacent counties. There is a field name Froggiley in Foston and Scropton (Derbys), which is recorded as Froggeley in the 13th century, so we can at least be confident that the formation is plausible.
