    Age 1

    "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."

    Name Meaning

    Irish: shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó hÉideáin ‘descendant of Éideán’ and Ó hÉidín ‘descendant of Éidín’, personal names apparently from a diminutive of éideadh ‘clothes, armor’. There was also a Norman family bearing the English name (see 2 below), living in County Wexford. Alternative spellings include Hadden .

    English: habitational name from any of various places called Haydon (Dorset, Wiltshire, Somerset, Gloucestershire), Heydon (Cambridgeshire, Norfolk), or Hayden (Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire). Most of the placenames derive from Old English hēg ‘hay’ or (ge)hæg ‘fence, enclosure’ + dūn ‘hill’, though the Cambridgeshire placename has Old English denu ‘valley’ as the final element.

    Jewish: variant of Heiden .
