World Events (8)


The Oklahoma Land Run on April 22, 1889, was the first land rush, or land opened for settlement on a first-come basis, opened to the Unassigned Lands. The land rush lured approximately 50,000 people, saddled with their fastest horses, looking to claim their piece of the newly available two million acres. The requirements included the settler to live and improve on their 160 acres for five years in order to receive the title. Choice land tempted people to hide out and get an early lead on their claim. These people became known as “sooners.” It is estimated that eleven thousand homesteads were claimed. Oklahoma Historical Society - Land Run of 1889

Name Meaning

English: patronymic meaning ‘son of Dawe’, from the Middle English personal name Daw(e) (see Daw 1 and 2), which is sometimes a pet form of David (see 2 below) but more generally of Rauf or Raw (i.e. Ralph ), of which Daw(e) is a rhyming form. Alternatively, the patronymic could mean ‘son of Daud(e)’, another Middle English pet form of Ralph evidently used interchangeably with Dawe. Dawson is one of the most numerous patronymics.

Scottish: patronymic, ‘son of Dawe’. In Scotland Dawe is a diminutive of David (compare 1 above).
