    1549 · Book of Common Prayer
    Age 84
    Book of Common Prayer, a product of the English Reformation, was published in 1549 for assistance in the administration of the sacraments and other rites and ceremonies of the church according to the use of the Church of England. The book outlined morning, evening, and communion prayers and orders for baptism and marriage, thus making England a truly Protestant state.

    Name Meaning

    English (Lancashire and Yorkshire): habitational name mostly from one or other of three places called Shuttleworth in Lancashire, though occasionally from Shuttleworth, now Littleworth, in Rossington (Yorkshire), or Shuttlewood in Bolsover (Derbyshire). The Lancashire and Yorkshire placenames derive from Old English scyt(t)els ‘bolt, bar’, probably also meaning ‘something that can be barred or bolted’, + worth ‘enclosure’, while the Derbyshire placename comes from Old English scyt(t)els + wudu ‘wood’.
