    1770 · Boston Tea Party

    Age 8

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 Taxes were repealed on all imports to the American Colonies except tea.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

    Age 13

    "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."

    1787 · English Convicts Sail to Australia

    Age 25

    The first fleet of convicts sailed from England to Australia on May 13, 1787. By 1868, over 150,000 felons had been exiled to New South Wales, Van Diemen's Land, and Western Australia.

    Name Meaning

    English (northern): habitational name from Hugill (Westmorland), Howgill in Sedbergh (Cumbria, formerly West Yorkshire), or Howgill in Aysgarth (North Yorkshire). The Westmorland placename probably derives from Old Norse hó(r) ‘high’ + geil ‘narrow ravine’, while the other placenames arise from Old Norse hol ‘hollow’ + gil ‘ravine’.
