1820 · """The """"Radical War""""."""

The Scottish Insurrection was a week of strikes and unrest with demands for reform in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

But the insurrection was largely forgotten about, as attention was focused on the better publicized Radical events in England.

Name Meaning

Scottish: nickname from Gaelic cam ‘crooked, bent’ + beul ‘mouth’. As a result of folk etymology, the surname was often represented in Latin documents as de bello campo ‘of the fair field’, which led to the name sometimes being ‘translated’ into Anglo-Norman French as Beauchamp .

Irish (North Armagh): adopted for Gaelic Mac Cathmhaoil ‘son of Cathmhaol’ (literally ‘battle chief’): see Caulfield and Cowell .

English: variant of Camel , under the influence of the Scottish name (see 1 above).
