HAMMELL
This unusual name has two possible origins, the first of which is Scottish but is ultimately of Norman origin, and is a locational surname from the place called “Haineville” or “Henneville” in Manche.
The place name derives from the Germanic personal name “Hagano”, which means “hawthorn” and was originally a nickname, found in Medieval England as “Hain” and “Heyne”, with the Old French word “ville”, meaning settlement, village.
The surname as Ham(m)ill and Hom(m)ill was most commonly found in the area known as “Roughwood” in Ayshire. The second origin is from an Anglo-Saxon nickname for a scarred or marred person, from the Old English pre 7th “hamel” meaning “scarred, mutilated”. On February 10th 1670, Leonard, son of Leonard and Elizabeth Hammell, were married in St. Giles Cripplegate, London.
The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of William de Hameville, which was dated circa 1194, in the Records of Holm Cultram, during the reign of King William of Scotland, known as “The Lion”, 1165 – 1214. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation.
In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to “develop” often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.

Maria Ann “Mary” Hammell Linderman

Maria Ann Mary <i>Hammell</i> LindermanMaria Ann Mary <i>Hammell</i> LindermanMaria Ann Mary <i>Hammell</i> Linderman

Birth: 1817
Newfield
Tompkins County
New York, USA
Death: Mar. 7, 1884
Winona
Winona County
Minnesota, USA 

Daughter of Eli Hammell of New York, the Hammell’s emigrated from Scotland in the 1700’s, and Ellen Hammell of Ireland emigrated in 1815(she was Irish but her maiden name is unknown).

Maria A. “Mary” Hammell married Abraham Linderman on 26 November 1835 in Newfield Twp, Tompkins County, New York.

Canyon Bridge, Newfield, New York

Moved to Kane County, Illinois between 1837-8 with Abraham’s father, Ezekiel Linderman.

Abraham and Mary moved to Winona, Winona County, Minnesota in 1856. The old Linderman Home place was at: 231 E. Mark St., Winona, Winona County, Minnesota. They resided together until 1884 when Mary passed away, and Abraham resided there up until 1893 when he passed.

Mary & Abraham had one daughter, Mary Linderman, and no sons, that I am positive of.

They had Elizabeth A. “Lizzie” Linderman, who resided with them for years, She married Joseph James, and then a Loftus. My maternal great grandfather, Edward Francis Linderman, stated in his papers just that she was his Aunt Lizzie Loftus. (I have found no birth records for her or her parents names)
I believe that Lizzie was Abraham’s niece. They called her Aunt Lizzie Loftus.

The Linderman’s were Lutheran.

DEATH OF OLD SETTLERS
LINDERMAN
“Mary Linderman, wife of A. Linderman, died on the 7th. inst., at her home in this city in her 69th. year. As Mr. and Mrs. Linderman came to reside in Winona in April, 1856, her death takes another from the already diminished list of old settlers. For the past year, Mrs. Linderman has been a sufferer from the disease which finally terminated in dropsy and death, but had the unremitting attention of the members of her family and other kind friends. Mrs. Linderman was a woman of marked industry and force of character, and many can testify to her great kindness of heart. A large company of friends were present at the funeral and followed the remains to their resting place in Woodlawn Cemetery, Winona, Minnesota.” source publication: Winona Daily Republican Newspaper; Date: 1884 March 10; Page 3

Ireland countryside

Shamrock – national flower of Ireland

The shamrock, a small clover which is now the national flower of Ireland, was an important symbol to the ancient Irish Druids as a plant naturally displaying the triad with its three heart-shaped leaves.

The Celts believed that everything important in the world came in threes; the three dominions of earth, sky and sea, the three ages of man, and phases of the moon; so a plant with three leaves would have been held in high regard.

St. Patrick used the shamrock in his teaching

St Patrick Stained Glass Window, St. Benin's Church, Kilbennan, County Galway, Ireland copyright detail 2010-09-16 cc3

The shamrock was thought to have mystical properties and the ability to predict the weather; its leaves turn skyward when a storm is brewing. It is believed that St Patrick, on seeing the importance of this small plant to the Druids, used the shamrock to illustrate the Christian teachings of the Holy Trinity, thus spreading the word of Christianity throughout the land in a way that appealed to its people.

Many of the Druid high priests are thought to have converted to Christianity, becoming Bishops following St Patrick’s teachings.

Ireland’s best known national symbol

Leprechaun

The shamrock became a symbol of rebellion against the Crown in the 19th century and anyone caught wearing one, risked the hangman’s noose! Today it is Ireland’s most well known national symbol recognized throughout the world.

It is used as a logo by many Irish companies and organisations such as Aer Lingus, and on the 17th of March the shamrock is displayed on anything from beer to bunting to over-large novelty hats as part of the St Patrick’s Day celebrations.

In Celtic lore the shamrock has always been a charm against evil which relates to the modern belief in the four leaf clover as a good luck charm.

Some believe the shamrock even has the power to break a leprechaun’s curse.

Edinburgh, Scotland

Life of Ty

This weekend I spent a few days in Edinburgh, Scotland.  This has been one of my favorite weekends to date!  Scotland is gorgeous! As soon as we got there, we went on a walking tour of the town.  On the tour we got to see many of the big sights including Edinburgh Castle, the cafe where JK Rowling wrote most of the first two Harry Potter books, the cemetery where she got some of the names for the books, and many of the churches.  After the tour, we went to a little pub where I tried haggis for the first time.  It tasted delicious, and I enjoyed it as long as I didn’t think about what it was made out of (leftover sheep organs all mashed up and stuffed into its stomach and boiled for four hours).  That night, we went on a ghost tour of Edinburgh.  Edinburgh is one…

On the hunt for Edinburgh’s Ghosts

it's that little feeling of ... Wanderlust

Back in June I visited my friend in Edinburgh. After not seeing each other for over a year it was promising to be a pretty exciting affair. Sure enough, as I hopped off my train and made my way down the platform towards her she almost walked past me…Ok, I haven’t changed that much have I? :p No really, she was just looking further into the distance so all was forgiven 😉

Having lived in Edinburgh for a good year I had the perfect tour guide to show me the town. And, oh behold, the good weather must have followed me from London because we had sunshine for the most part (one very very cloudy day on Arthur’s Seat) while I was there. Sunshine in Scotland?? Yep, I was as amazed as you are.

So what do you do when it is not raining in Scotland? I can’t…

Peace, Love, and Jetlag

On Friday morning, we stopped in the town of Stirling and visited the castle. For the majority of this trip, we’ve been lucky and dodged the rain. This morning was a different story, as it was cold, windy, and rainy. I apologize for the quality of the pictures. This was the best I could do in the wind and rain!

The castle overlooks a hill where the monument dedicated to William Wallace (a.k.a. Braveheart) is located. Below is one of my attempts at a picture of it, but I couldn’t get a very clear shot because of the weather. The castle and palace were lovely. In the middle courtyard, you can see the outline of the foundation of the chapel where Mary, Queen of Scots was crowned Queen of Scotland at nine months old.

Edinburgh Castle

Peace, Love, and Jetlag

I hit up Edinburgh Castle first thing Tuesday morning. They have optional guided tours inside the castle that are included with your ticket. I joined one of the tours and learned some interesting things about the castle. There is a time-gun in one of the castle’s batteries that is fired at 1 PM every day. Apparently, it’s fired at 1 PM instead of noon so that they can save on ammunition. There is also a 6 ton cannon called Mons Meg that has a range of two miles. It was said that it was so heavy, it would take a team of a hundred men a day to haul it only 3 miles! Some of the cool things you could see inside the castle are the Scottish Crown Jewels (the Honours of Scotland), the Stone of Destiny, and the room where Mary Queen of Scots gave birth to James VI…

I Love Edinburgh!

Travels with the Blonde Coyote

Now this is my kind of city! Edinburgh is built on the remains of an extinct volcano. The main outlet of the volcano, known as Arthur’s Seat, towers above Old Town, while Edinburgh Castle sits on a second vent of indomitable black rock. Most of this city is carved out of dark, mafic dolerite. I love cities where the Earth is apparent underfoot, unconcealed by an overdose of concrete.

Stay tuned for another view of the city from the Salisbury Crags and Arthur’s Seat!

“Sacketts Harbour, Jefferson County, New York ; 
Because of its strategic protected harbor on Lake Ontario and the military installations built there, the village had national importance through the 19th century.
To support the War of 1812, the US Navy built a major shipyard and its headquarters for the Great Lakes at the village. Within a short period, more than 3,000 men worked at the shipyard. The Army constructed earthworks, forts, barracks and supporting infrastructure to defend the village and navy shipyard, and its troops also camped in town, which was overwhelmed by the number of military.
Soon after the war, the Army strengthened its defenses on the northern frontier by constructing Madison Barracks. Sacket’s Harbor Battlefield State Historic Site commemorates a battle and the contribution of the area to the United States defense during the War of 1812.”

As Mr. and Mrs. Linderman came to reside in Winona in April, 1856, her death takes another from the already diminished list of old settlers.For the past year Mrs. Linderman has been a sufferer from the disease which finally terminated in dropsy and death, but had the unremitting attention of the members of her family and other kind friends.Mrs. Linderman was a woman of marked industry and force of character, and many can testify to her great kindness of heart.A large company of friends were present at the funeral and followed the remains to their resting place in Woodlawn Cemetery, Winona, Minnesota.” (source publication: Winona Daily Republican Newspaper; Date: 1884 March 10; Page 3)

Scottish Christmas Traditions

According to Friends of Scotland.gov.uk, “The Vikings stuffed their faces with vast quantities of food and drink after which they stumbled off into the winter night to light a huge bonfire in the goddess’ honour. Today, fire and light plays a major part in Yule celebrations in many areas of Scotland from Biggar to Shetland.

When William of Normandy conquered England in 1066 the English Princess Margaret fled north and was shipwrecked on the Scottish coast. Her Christian influence helped turn the previously pagan Yuletide season into a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.”

The traditional Scottish Christmas Day MenuSeeing a beautifully-laid table for Christmas Dinner is a sight to behold. One tradition we still have is the use of Christmas Crackers. These are pulled, and create a wee ‘bang’ and inside is a variety trinkets such as a joke, a wee toy or gift (depends on the quality of the cracker) and the inevitable paper hat. EVERYONE (yes, I thin almost everyone)sits though Christmas Dinner wearing a silly paper hat! (see the picture of the Christmas Cracker with the mince pies)Over the years many main dishes have become traditional for Christmas Dinner. Roast Turkey is still in my opinion the most popular, but whether in a family home, restaurant or Hotel, many other dishes are often on the menu.

 

Starters: Perhaps it’s because of the cold weather, but soup is often served as a starter. It could be Cock O Leekie Soup. traditional-scottish-christmas-turkey

Hello world!

Welcome to my Scottish Roots. Mother had told me that we were German, Norwegian, Luxembourgish, and my daddy was Moravian, but I have discovered that I am also Scottish, Irish, English, and French.
