1607

The Virginia Company founded the first permanent English colony at Jamestown in 1607. One of the original 13 states (it entered the Union in 1788). Virginia holds an important place in American history, as it was home to many of the founding fathers, including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, George Mason, and Patrick Henry. Four of Americas first five presidents were Virginians. During the Civil War, Richmond, Virginias capital, was the capital of the Confederacy. Today, Virginia is a popular tourist spot where people can visit historic places such as Alexandria, Williamsburg, and Mount Vernon, George Washingtons estate.

1620 · The Pilgrims Board the Mayflower

"The Pilgrims boarded the Mayflower in search of religious freedom in the New World in September 1620. The Mayflower set sail from Plymouth, England, with 102 passengers, 40 of whom called themselves ""Saints."" After two stormy months at sea, the ship reached the New World. Nearly half of the group died during their first winter due to malnutrition and the harsh New England winter."

1642 · The English Civil War

A series of conflicts regarding England's governance during the years 1642 to 1651 is now known as The English Civil War. Charles I summoned supporters to join him against his enemies in Parliament. In October 1642, nearly 10,000 men fought for Charles I and chased Parliament across the River Tamar. Fighting continued for years and was finally ended at the Battle of Worcester on September 3, 1651, with a Parliamentarian victory.

Name Meaning

English: topographic name for someone who lived in a (usually remote) nook or corner of land, from Old English and Middle English hale, dative of h(e)alh ‘nook, hollow’, or a habitational name from a place so named such as Hale in Cheshire, Hampshire, Lancashire, Lincolnshire, Holme Hale (Norfolk), Hale Street (Kent), and Haile (Cumberland). In northern England the word often has a specialized meaning, denoting a piece of flat alluvial land by the side of a river, typically one deposited in a bend. See Haugh . In southeastern England it often referred to a patch of dry land in a fen. In some cases the surname may be a habitational name from any of several places in England named with this fossilized inflected form, which would originally have been preceded by a preposition, e.g. in the hale or at the hale. This surname is also established in south Wales.

Irish: shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Céile (see McHale ).

Jewish (Ashkenazic): variant of Halle .
