    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.

    1770 · Boston Tea Party

    Age 30

    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 Taxes were repealed on all imports to the American Colonies except tea.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.

    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from Leeming in North Yorkshire. The place takes its name from a lost river name. In some cases the name may be connected to the English surname Limmage, a habitational name from Lymage in Huntingdonshire or Lyminge in Kent. There may also have been some late confusion with Lemmon and its variants.
