Age 6

The Scottish Reform Act was introduced by Parliament that introduced changes to the election laws in Scotland. The Act didn’t change the method of how the counties elected members but adopted a different solution for each pair of counties. Ultimately, it brought about boundary changes so that some burghs would have more say for the country than others.

Name Meaning

English (Norfolk and Suffolk): from the Middle English personal name Hogge, a rhyming pet form of Roger . In The Canterbury Tales, Chaucer's cook, ‘highte Hogge of Ware’, is invoked ‘Now tell on, Roger …’. Since Middle English spellings of the personal name are often impossible to distinguish from the nickname Hog(ge) ‘hog’, some early examples may be variants of Hogg .
