World Events (8)

1770 · Boston Tea Party

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 Taxes were repealed on all imports to the American Colonies except tea.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

"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."

1801 · The Act of Union

The Act of Union was a legislative agreement which united England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland under the name of the United Kingdom on January 1, 1801.

Name Meaning

Irish: shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó hÉideáin ‘descendant of Éideán’ and Ó hÉidín ‘descendant of Éidín’, personal names apparently from a diminutive of éideadh ‘clothes, armor’. There was also a Norman family bearing the English name (see 2 below), living in County Wexford. Alternative spellings include Hadden .

English: habitational name from any of various places called Haydon (Dorset, Wiltshire, Somerset, Gloucestershire), Heydon (Cambridgeshire, Norfolk), or Hayden (Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire). Most of the placenames derive from Old English hēg ‘hay’ or (ge)hæg ‘fence, enclosure’ + dūn ‘hill’, though the Cambridgeshire placename has Old English denu ‘valley’ as the final element.

Jewish: variant of Heiden .
