    1839 · The Rebecca Riots Take Place

    Age 0

    The Rebecca Riots were a group of protests in west Wales from 1839-1843. The people involved were mostly poor farmers, primarily men dressed as women. The group was called “Rebecca and her daughters”, a title believed to have come the book of Genesis. They mostly fought against the toll-gates. There is only record of one death during the riots: a young Sarah Williams had been warned that the rioters were coming, but upon refusing to leave, was killed.

    Name Meaning

    German, English, and French: from a personal name composed of the ancient Germanic elements heri, hari ‘army’ + berht ‘bright, famous’. In Britain, this Old French name, introduced by the Normans, reinforced the less common Old English cognate Herebeorht. The surname was taken to Ireland after the Anglo-Norman invasion and in the 16th century.

    Jewish (Ashkenazic): from the German personal name (see 1 above).
