    1688 · Glorious Revolution

    Age 7

    The Glorious Revolution brought the downfall of Catholic King James II and the reign of his Protestant daughter Mary and her Dutch husband, William III of Orange.

    1720 · South Sea Bubble

    Age 39

    The South Sea Bubble Bill was passed by the House of Lords in 1720. This allowed the South Sea company to monopolize trade with South America. The company underwrote the English National Debt which promised 5% interest from the government. As shares rose exponentially, many companies were created and many fortunes were made. The stocks crashed and many people lost their money which caused them to become destitute overnight and suicide was common. Robert Walpole took charge of the South Sea Bubble Financial Crisis by dividing the national debt between the Bank of England, the Treasury, and the Sinking Fund.

    Name Meaning

    Irish, Scottish, and English (of Norman origin): from the Anglo-Norman French, Middle English, and Older Scots personal name Patrick (Old Irish Patraicc), derived from Latin Patricius ‘son of a noble father, member of the patrician class’. This was the name of a Christian saint, a 5th-century Romano-Briton who became the apostle and patron saint of Ireland, and it was largely as a result of his fame that the personal name was so popular from the Middle Ages onward. In Ireland the surname is usually Scottish in origin, from Scottish settlers in Ulster in the 17th century. See also Peden and McPadden , derived from pet forms of Old Irish Patraicc.

    Scottish and Irish: shortened Anglicized form of Scottish and Irish Gaelic Mac Phádraig ‘son of Patrick’.

    English: variant of Partridge .
