World Events (6)

1688 · Glorious Revolution

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

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

English: occupational name for a dresser of cloth, from Middle English fuller ‘fuller of cloth’ (partly from Old English fullere, partly from Old French fouleor, foleur, Latin fullo). Raw cloth had to be fulled, i.e. scoured, cleansed, and thickened by beating or trampling it in water, a process also known as walking or tucking, hence the surnames Walker and Tucker alongside Fuller. These three terms and surnames are characteristic of different parts of England. In general, in Middle English, Fuller is southern and eastern, while Walker belongs to the west and north and Tucker is southwestern. Compare Fullen .

English: variant of Fullard with loss of -d.

German (Füller): occupational name for a person whose work involved filling, such as a dauber, or a nickname for a gourmand or glutton. Compare Filler .
