"In October 1845, the newspaper Times and Seasons published a poem written by Eliza R. Snow entitled ""My Father in Heaven."" It has become the well known hymn, ""Oh My Father."" The song is only one in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints hymnbook that referrs to a Heavenly Mother."

Name Meaning

English: habitational name from places in Buckinghamshire and Somerset. The former was earlier Rockholt, and was so named from Old English hrōc ‘rook’ (perhaps a byname) + holt ‘wood’. The second element of the Somerset place is probably (and more predictably) Old English well(a) ‘spring’, ‘stream’ ( see Well ).
