Border Reivers; Armstrong, Elliott, Nixon, Crozier of Middle March 1587

November-December 2017  Border Reivers-Elliot(t) FTDNA;
Inorder to do genealogy, one has to accept what another says about there family.
To find new thinks about ones own family and individual needs to be open to suggestion, then to research it to find the correctness in it, which can be applied to ones own family line.
Since an individual knows their own family line, better than anyone else, searching for the small part of correctness, will advance one foreward in their genealogical search.
Needed to point out incorrectness on your own not others family line because this is bennificial to finding family links.
In pointing out correctness in another persons family land can prove to be destructive to the advancement of their family history.Want to thank everyone which brought out concepts, so I could try to approach answers to genealogical statement in the Border Reiver project.This material, like all my material is on a take it or leave it basis, a key to doing good genealogy.Sincerely
Mark Stephen Elliott
Somebody once told me that in 1066, England was invaded by red haired German Vikings, led by William the Conqueror. Of course one of my ancestors was there. Then they moved to the borders of Scotland and changed their names a lot, allot, ellot. In the picture you can see one of the knights of the round table, Sir B S Alott. Dad said we were probably related. I’ve got a picture somewhere of his castle, but there was a windmill built next door, which I think spoils the view. I complained to everybody but they just don’t listen and they’ve got MI6 on their side. There’s a Chevvy Caprice parked outside now, with a guy who’s got an earpiece and keeps talking to his cuff? Hahaha, I talk to my friend in German, so the watchers won’t understand us. Anyway time for some genealogy now. It is felt that genealogy is complicated, but you just read lots of history books. When you find someone who has a name a little like yours, that person becomes your ancestor. You don’t have to have proper proof….boring or what. Got to sign off now, I applied for a job at The Pentagon, “Codetalker”. You have to write stuff that the enemy can’t understand, well nobody can understand anything I write, so I’m perfectly qualified. The trouble is, they don’t return my calls. Bye, happy holidays.
James Elwald in 1526 did not kill Cessford, and start a feud between Buccleuch and Cessford which is still going on to this day. With Cessford in the past being of North British Windpower NBW, trying to place a wind farm called Windy Edge of Infinis now Muirhall, near the Hermitage Castle which Buccleuch, does not own, but stewards for the prosperity of all. It is like placing a wind farm on the ancient grounds of Roxburgh, which is easily prevented by Cessford, the Duke of Roxburghe because he owns these lands. James Elwald was a traitor to James V, which dishonestly, hung Johnny Armstrong, of Gilnockie-Hollows tower, and that is what it shows James Elwald in 1526 being hung for. One has to be kind of proud of James Elwald of 1526 these days. “The contract for the purchase of Stobs is dated June 3, 1580, and is expressed to be made between ‘Gawane Ellot of Baillilie’ and Gawin Glaidstanes, brother and heir-apparent to the deceased George Glaidstanes of Stobbes.” The Border Elliots and the Family of Minto By George Francis Scott Elliot pages 242-3 Ch XV The Ellot (ie earlier Elwald), obtained Stobs in the Barony of Cavers, in 1580.

Know you are familiar with the given site, but others may not be, so this link is given; http://www.douglashistory.co.uk/history/Places/hermitagecastle.htm “The Earl of Angus in 1470 appointed David Scott of Buccleuch to the office of Custodian of Hermitage Castle, and for many years the Scotts fulfilled this duty. In 1492, Archibald Douglas, fifth Earl of Angus, exchanged Liddesdale and Hermitage with Patrick Hepburn, third Lord Hales, who was created first Earl of Bothwell,..” Nigel, because of you being a Douglas, it may be only you feeling “deja vu”.
Buckcleuch, is well defined by Walter Elliot. Map shows places and family names to the east in Counties Selkirkshire and Treviotdale, which should be of interest. Even Cavers which is up for sale; https://www.rettie.co.uk/property-for-sale/borders/scottish-borders/denholm/MEL130005-house-building-plot-country-home-cavers (needs a wee bit restoration).

CLAN CROZIER, allied to Clan Armstrong, and Clan Elliott. There’s my many great grandfather; “Hobbe Elwode Clemyt syster sone.” that is “Clemyt Crossier of Stobbes.” in 1544 http://www.gpedia.com/en/gpedia/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Clan_Crozier “I would support the deletion of this article. The reasons being firstly that the “Clan Crozier” is not a recognized clan by the Lord Lyon King of Arms – with or without chief. Secondly most of the information in the article is random information not specifically about the “Clan Crozier” but rather what seems to be heraldic information, that is incoherent and will not make any sense to any one reading it who is new to the subject let alone anyone who is a clan historian.QuintusPetillius (talk) 16:29, 19 December 2015 (UTC)” “Consensus We appear to have consensus of at least 3 people in this discussion, if not more, who want to delete the Clan Crozier article. In reply to the above the problem editor’s websites which he claims show that he has genealogical experience actually show nothing of the sort and are a complete mass of unlogical nonsense.QuintusPetillius (talk) 15:30, 29 December 2015 (UTC)” Note; created domain, www.clancrozier.com. Web search the article’s name “Clan Crozier”, and compare how well Wikipedia, and web domain www.clancrozier.com are doing. This is the reiver’s answer, descended from ie a Robert Elliott, adopted by a Clement Crozier, living at Stobs, on Gladstane’s lease;'”Clan Crozier” is not a recognized clan by the Lord Lyon King of Arms’ not recognizing Clan Crozier for over four centuries.

http://named.publicprofiler.org/ Steven Johnstone, Find that, your name likely came from a locality of Johnston, Co Annandale, Scotland. Though a lot of Johns Towns around world, likely at one time a farmstead belonging to someone named John. Using http://named.publicprofiler.org/, on will find the name Johnson of Scandinavian origin referencing to be the son of John with Scandinavian versions of Johsson, and Johnsen, brought in by the Scandinavians into England became Johnson, and the first name form the make it to America. Johnstone leans Scottish of Co. Annandale, and Johnston leans towards Co Ulster, Ireland, a lot in Co Fermanagh, along Irish border, and Down and Antrim north Ulster. From one border to another. Came to America as Johnston then name evolved for many into Johnson, loosing the name identity of being Scottish. http://gorrenberry.com/armstrong-elliot-crozier-nixon-johnson-graham-ulster-scot/ c1630 Ulster muster rolls shows counties of surname Johnston; http://www.therjhuntercollection.com/resources/muster-rolls-c-1630/search-muster-rolls/ http://forebears.io/surnames/Johnstone Steven you are most likely from this region of Scotland. The names Steven, and Stephen (first language, German speaking mother’s father’s name which is my middle name. Mark is a family surname past to my dad’s father.), are likely of Germanic origins, but use interchangeably, mainly by Scots. http://worldnames.publicprofiler.org/ note; Ray Irwin, this places the Johnstone, much closer to the Irving of Bonshaw Tower. http://forebears.io/surnames/Irving Johnstone, and Irving have similar surname distribution patterns. Click “British Isles”, then “Frequency”. It sure begs the question; Steven Johnstone, do you match any Irving (Irwin)?
The I-M253 of Johnstone of Annandale; seems to have to do with the Fairbairn (of Armstong, and likely other border clans) plus the Carruthers which are part of the Bruce (Robert) like the Johnstone of Annandale, seem to have a linking. http://gorrenberry.com/armstrong-fairbairn-m253-y-dna/ http://www.elwald.com/carruthers-i-m253-y-dna/ It’s creating NPE among the Carruthers, Irvin, and Elliot https://www.familytreedna.com/public/irwin/default.aspx?section=yresults NPE – CARRUTHERS 29391 Irvine William IRVINE 1791-1875 Scotland I-M253 NPE – DODD 104550 Irvin Unknown Origin I-M253 79267 Irvin Malachai Irvin, born 1812 Pike County Georgia Scotland I-M253 NPE – ELLIOT (1) / FAIRBAIRN 72309 Irwin Andrew Irwin 1789 Nashville, TN Unknown Origin I-M253 339641 Parker Unknown Origin I-M253 13 22 14 312307 Elliott James Elliott , born 1800 to1805 Ireland I-M253 https://www.familytreedna.com/public/DoddDoddsSurnameDNAProject?iframe=yresults
http://worldnames.publicprofiler.org Another one of my crazy concepts to combine surname distribution with Y-DNA results. Found surname variants, which seemed to match for surnames which matched one off in twenty-five; Y-DNA – Matches; Show Matches For: “The Entire Data Base” Markers: “25” Distance: “1 Step” Matches Per Page: “25” Finch, Olofsson, Cordner/Conner Ireland, Davies PA, Finn, Grant, Quebbeman Osnabrück, Koontz, Moore, Conn, Richards, White, Lykins, Prado, Conn, Atkinson, Roberts, Horton, Johnson, Koons, Coons Cuntze, Atkinson, Ruecker Rucker, Davies, Gerlach, Jamieson, McGrane, Finch, Rogers, Gander, Conn Variant names; Cuntze, Koontz, Koons, Coons, Conner, Conn, Conn, Conn Final early name extrapolation “Kuntze” Extrapolation of Cuntze-Koontz gave me; “Kuntze”, Koons, Coons, and Conner, intermediate for Conn, which because of multiples indicated a more recent name. So later name extrapolation became “Conn”. Compared surname distribution pattern of Kuntze to Conn, to that of Ewald to Elliott, and found the name evolution patterns showed similarities; http://gorrenberry.com/proto-germanische-r-u106-haplogroup-dna-elwald-elliot/ Have my migration from northeast Germany to northern Ulster Ireland. Genealogy is not rocket science.

Garth Graham 40 minutes ago “Thread bump!” Do not need either Nigel or Garth, bumping up their tread to the to top of the que(ue) by making responses to it. This is MI6 censoring tactics I been having to deal with in a controlled Scottish media by the corporate environment a type of censorship, which is in the process of industrial destruction of the greatest icon to Border Reivers, The Hemitage Castle by electrical wind turbines. In all the UK; compare wind farm concentration on the borders to that of England and see which is the greater. http://gorrenberry.com/censorship-of-clan-crozier-elliot/ Plus, having my voice deleted from Scotland, is censorship. Which I really do not need to be a part of a controlled status quo, data distorted environment, with coarse DNA measurements trying to inferred accuracy enough to separate out individuals for genealogical family history purposes. DNA is just one of the many tools of the genealogist. Just do not need these so called; “Thread bump!” Migration displacement is an important part in getting family historical genealogy correct. Nigel mention that this site may not be needed. It is not needed if it does not incorporate proper Border Reiver family migration into their knowledge base.

DOUGLASS, FREDERICK (1817—1895), American orator and journalist, was born in Tuckahoe, Talbot county, Maryland, probably in February 1817. “changed his name from Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey to Frederick Douglass, “Douglass” being adopted at the suggestion of a friend who greatly admired Scott’s Lady of the Lake.” http://www.douglashistory.co.uk/history/frederickdouglass.htm Note that this is a UK site, and I as an American have been to Frederick Douglass grave site Mount Hope Cemetery, Rochester, NY, USA. It was when Jocelyn Bell Burnell, born Susan Jocelyn Bell 15 July 1943, Lurgan, County Armagh, Northern Ireland, was the plenary speaker at the US Friends General Conference Gathering in 2000. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jocelyn_Bell_Burnell “Minister and theologian Peter J. Gomes serves as the Plummer Professor of Christian Morals and Pusey Minister in the Memorial Church at the Harvard Divinity School.” Milestones in Peter Gomes’s (Portugese) ancestry: https://www.thirteen.org/wnet/aalives/profiles/gomes.html “1782 Samuel Bailey, a prominent Quaker of Surrey county, Virginia, frees his 17 slaves, including Rose Bailey, Peter Gomes’s great, great, great grandmother. Quakers were ardent abolitionists who condemned slavery for its violence and because it denied equal status to all human beings. By 1800 most Quakers had freed their slaves.” Aighton, Bailey and Chaigley, UK https://www.google.com/maps/place/Aighton,+Bailey+and+Chaigley,+UK/@53.7622809,-2.4797439,10.37z/ https://books.google.com/books?id=zzjxBQAAQBAJ&pg=PA581&dq=%22de+Bailey%22&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiD1uul8J3YAhVK_WMKHcWCD5oQ6AEIMDAB#v=onepage&q=%22de%20Bailey%22&f=false https://www.google.com/maps/place/Pendle+Hill/@53.8685673,-2.3073103,15z/ https://pendlehill.org/ http://forebears.io/surnames/Bailey census, top two counties for the Bailey surnames, in the British Isles; Lancashire 4,849 Yorkshire 4,737 Bailey being abolitionist Quakers were known to free their slaves, and slaves would take and abolitionist surname, maybe like that of Bailey which became the Scottish Douglass name.
Point I am trying to make, is that two African Americans, Peter Gomes, and Frederick Douglass, are linked to the surname Bailey, which has it’s census densitiy, and locality in County Lancashire, UK, where the Quakers, are linked to a George Fox, and Pendle Hill in their beginnings. Given the African American were speakers of the American language when surnames were adopted, surnames where not given to them, but they were chosen. Many and African American, would choose a surname of a Quaker abolitionist which freed them, and therefore would be said to have the slave owners name. The slave owners name was not given to the African American, but only chosen by them, if there were excellent relations. This should help people in their genealogical research, because there are on this site people of all colors.
Thank you for this Quaker and African American historical tie; and specifically the surname Bailey. Here at Christmas time, I’m reminded of the character “George Bailey” in “It’s a Wonderful Life” played by Jimmy Stewart. And, I recall learning that the first abolitionists were among the German Americans in Pennsylvania.
How good the renovation is, depends on who does it.

Curt Harris “The Web also says that Clan Nixon was from Clan Armstrong?” Clan Nixon claims to be a sept of Clan Armstrong, but armigerous clan self lead without chief like Clan Armstrong, since it does not have a chief, does not have septs. Clan Nixon can be an ally to Clan Armstrong, like Clan Crozier, but it has not taken the initiative. Another option since Clan Elliot has a chief is to be a sept of Clan Elliot. Clan Elliot unlike Clan Armstrong which Clan Nixon is compatible with seems to be trying to take on aristocratic leanings, this is exclusive of their chief Margaret Eliott. Clan Hunter rode for Clan Nixon, and at one time noted to be a sept of Clan Elliot. There is an historian for Clan Elliot, named Kieth Elliot Hunter. Since he is connected to Gorrenberry-Clan Crozier, and Clementis Hob was in today’s language Clement Crozier’s sister son Robert Elliott (Hob Elwold), I refer to him as my brother-in-law, though connected in the sixteenth century through the Crozier. As far as the Nixon are concern it is felt that these Nixon are his determination since he is of Clan Elliot and Clan Hunter which rode with the Nixon, and the Crozier and Nixon seem to be strongly linked.
http://named.publicprofiler.org/ Curt Harris “Speaking of surnames, is Kennedy from Scotland or Ireland? There’s clans for both, according to the Web, and the Scottish Clan Kennedy was from the Scottish Lowlands?” http://www.therjhuntercollection.com/resources/muster-rolls-c-1630/search-muster-rolls/ First Name Surname Barony/Lands Landlord/Estate County Neele Kennedy Tome Mr Adare Antrim Thomas Kennedy Masreyne H.

Northeast toward Aberdeen (note also Gaelic “Mac” migrated east to become “Mc”), likely migration from Dabatable region such with Gordon and Irvine. Presbyterian, Antrim-Down pre Plantation Gaelic speaking but after James VI of Scotland became James I of England border pacification, the Scottish Border language migrated to counties Antrim-Down. So the Antrim-Down Kennedy could be Gaelic Highland Kennedy Glasgow-north, or Dabatable Scottish speaking Kennedy, which also migrated to Antrim-Down.

Reivers weave borders, and historically been noted to use multiple languages. Like in genealogy, being of family that is where the loyalty is for a border reiver. At the beginning of the decade which I was born, the word computer meant one who did computations. Though today people have difficulties with long division, like to see someone take a square root by hand. Interfacing with today’s computer search algorithms, allows me to take visual measurements. Though I utilize various linguistic languages, to get the localities, and weighted number on surnames, I can easily read in people’s responses whether they are refusing to tap into the given links. Garth feeds me a lot of information which I am able to apply. Once something is feed out like my dad did in his on printing and distributing his family genealogies various places, I too can measure results and see where they are coming from internationally. It seems like a small nation like Scotland likes say a lot without proper statistical research techniques as used in the People of the British Isles study. Family line may have crossed into Liddesdale previous to the Declaration of Abroath, and that is why my Danish Proto-Germanic DNA, may not have had the compatibility with Scotland, and became a part of the Liddesdale Borderlands, and unto Fermanagh, Ulster. Genealogy takes documentation, and the only reason anyone would think I do not have the documentation, because they haven’t fully explored my research. Keep on talking and I will keep on learning and take, read measurements, the measurement of distribution patterns and anomalies. Want to thank people in this group for their help so far.

http://named.publicprofiler.org/ Both Graham, and Liddell, contain significantly proportional amounts of J-M267 in their respective, FTDNA groups. J-M267 is rare in Scotland, so it implies a link between the surname Graham and Scotland, that of an ancient Roman DNA. It is felt the the name Liddell, came from the Liddell Water, but for those on the Liddel Water the name Liddel, changed to a more common spelling, of a similar pronunciation that of Little, where the density of Graham are located in the US today.

Nigel Douglas “I’ve got a picture somewhere of his castle, but there was a windmill built next door, which I think spoils the view.” In my nation we have been protecting our historical archaeological antiquities for over a century.

The Hermitage Castle is the ancestral site of Reivers. With my family in the past defending it, I feel as with Chaco Canyon, along with the Armstrong, Buck (Buccleuch), and other Reivers, maybe not the Douglas a kinship, and collective ownership of it, and like Chaco Canyon, I do not want a wind farm near it. The over a century old USNPS US National Park System attracts visitors around the world, and that is the same for The Hermitage Castle.
Oh no! Treasures of Chaco Canyon threatened by drilling By Richard Moe Dec 2, 2017 http://www.santafenewmexican.com/opinion/commentary/treasures-of-chaco-canyon-threatened-by-drilling/article_c14b9646-1397-5dd4-b91d-4d64efd4b4d5.html Chaco Canyon has its own kind of Southwestern beauty and history. I must say the Hermitage Castle is quite wonderful too. https://www.flickr.com/photos/dave_cleghorn/4918680335/
It should be noted that wind turbines extend themselves much higher above the earth’s surface then drill pumps, and therefore are industrially more devastating to the visual environment in concern of ancestral archaeological heritage such as The Hermitage Castle or Chaco Canyon. Article refers to; “Nonetheless, the two agencies agreed to defer all new drilling leases within a 10-mile (16 km) radius of Chaco …” It should be noted that The Hermitage Castle is not may I repeat not on the Duke of Buccleuch’s land; http://www.landmismanagement.info/tag/windfarm/ Owner: Historic Scotland https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermitage_Castle A reporter, as a governmental reporter determined that Wind Edge Wind Farm should be placed next to The Hermitage Castle, not on land of Buccleuch Estates. It shows that Scotland has a false and corporate dictatorial type of government which I as a citizen of the US do not want association with.

“Somebody once told me that in 1066, England was invaded by red haired German Vikings, led by William the Conqueror.” Germany does not have a propensity for red hair. Vikings are from Norway which has more of a propensity for red hair than Germany.

Would rather do without him, but it is he which chose to become involved. http://gorrenberry.com/censorship-of-clan-crozier-elliot/ It is not I which brought the Windy Edge Wind Farm into to the picture to try to prevent my genealogical progression down my family line. Makes the genealogy interesting though. http://www.heraldscotland.com/news/13137438.No_vote_donors_caught_in_wind_farm_payments_row/

James Elwald it is a honor to have a historical ancestor of mine being a traitor to James V, because he promised that medieval engineer named Gilnockie his safety, but hung him and his men. Do not think James VI who vanished my family from both kingdoms was any better though. After James Elwald was found guilty for riding with Sir Walter Scot(t), of Branxholm, and sentence to hang, he as a James Ellot-Elliot, was said to be the “black” Elliot which killed Cessford and caused a feud between Cessford and Buccleuch which is still going on today. Did you know Cessford and Branxholm are still around today. Cessford, is the Duke of Roxburghe, a second castle in ruins, which has residence a Floors Castle, near Old Roxburgh, and Kelso, Scotland where the Teviotdale and the Tweed meet. Cessford is of the Ker, and Ferniehirst Castle still standing is of the Kerr, and they also do not seem to get along that well. Buccleuch, moved in Teviotdale, moved to Branxholm, and now is in Langholm, where the Armstrong once had a castle. Though he is called Richard Scott he does have an in-between name of Walter. He manages The Buccluech Estates, the largest area of land of a single landholder in Scotland and raises Galloway cows. Married to a Ferniehirst Kerr named Elizabeth. Buccleuch, does not speak much, but put out this information; “To the south of the castle is the Langholm Estate, part of Buccleuch Estates, which is lodging an objection. ‘To pollute the landscape backdrop of the castle with all its power to evoke the history and heritage of the Scottish Borders would be nothing short of vandalism,’ stresses The Duke of Buccleuch.” Read more at http://www.countrylife.co.uk/news/wind-farm-battle-over-scottish-castle-6273#byaqPdXLjrxBAUDb.99 Feel today Richard Scott of Buccleuch Estates does not speak much because whenever his does speak, though a strong authority on land management in Scotland, people will misconstrued what he has to say, even for his expert opinion. The Scottish Government much prefers and opinion on land management from a reporter, which likely does not know of the land ownership, because a reporter not Richard Scott, made the final decision on Infinis Wind Edge Wind Farm which it is felt that the government officials knew the outcome of what the reporter was to say. If outside of media controlled Scotland, Google; Muirhall Windy Edge, and you can figure out whether I living in New Mexico, USA knew like Scotland’s Government the outcome of the “reporter’s” decision. The Branxholm-Buccleuch family did do renovations on the Hermitage Castle, and has steward it since the fifteenth century they do not own it. Buccleuch it should be noted has been promoting and making income off of the wind turbine industry. Old Roxburgh, is protected by ownership of the Duke of Roxburghe, from building wind turbines on it. Buccleuch, can not protect The Hermitage Castle by land ownership because he does not own land which previously Infinis, but now Muirhall Windy Edge is planned for. Muirhall is said to be a Scottish firm, if this is so then the Scottish Government believes unlike Buccleuch, and the Armstrong, in industrial destruction of the historical antiquities, which the surnames Armstrong, Douglas, Elliot and Scott so value; The Hermitage Castle. It should be noted that a firm of North British Windpower NBW, claimed to be Scottish also like Muirhall, but the Cessford-Ker Duke of Roxburghe, Ferniehirst-Kerr Clan chief were making income off it. It should be noted that neither the Cessford; The Duke of Roxburghe, or Ferniehirst, Clan Kerr Chief or even Redheugh has shown opposition to a wind farm next to The Hermitage Castle. For more information if outside the controlled media of Scotland Google; Muirhall Windy Edge.
Not against renewable energy; http://www.elliotclan.com/history/hermitage-castle/ http://www.marie-stuart.co.uk/Castles/Hermitage.htm http://www.douglashistory.co.uk/history/Places/hermitagecastle.htm Against industrialization (wind turbines, towers, and etc) in places which should be saved for future generations. It is felt many Armstrong, Douglas, Scott, Elliott, and border Dukes would agree with that statement. Cessford and Buccluech, along with Northumberland, need like I am trying to do preserve the archaeological, historical, antiquities, for the ancestry-children of border reivers in the UK, and around the world. For those border people living on the borders today, trying to give them a voice in the Scottish-English government so they may protect this history for themselves, and border people returning to their border homeland, and not to have their opinions and values superseded in the same fashion as border pacification, where they have a part in what happens around themselves and not to be dictated to by a corporate owned government.
People of Scotland, migrated to Nova Scotia (New Scotland), Canada. Among the Scots there were Gaelic speaking people which in comparison to other populations had a high percent of people with red hair. These Gaelic speaking Scots, took their Gaelic language with them to Nova Scotia (New Scotland), and spoke it in Nova Scotia, Canada. Regions which speak Gaelic in Scotland have a high percent of people with red hair, and regions in Nova Scotia, Canada, which speak Gaelic also have a high percent of red hair. For the purposes of not being exact to the nearest tenth of a percent, and to make it useful for genealogical researchers, I will as a genealogical researcher, conclude given the name Nova Scotia, that Gaelic speakers of Gaelic speaking regions in Scotland, migrated with their red hair to Gaelic speaking regions of Nova Scotia, Canada. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_Gaelic There are Gaelic, speaking Scots in Ulster, which migrated to the Appalachians, states, where the statics would be difficult to isolate. Some populations get a preferred historical advantage. Do the people of the American Southern Appalachians, and the Gaelic of Ulster, and Scotland get the same. The Gaelic, Groml(e)y turned there name to the border Graham name, not the other way around, are they among these preferred historic groups? Neither, the kingdom of England, or Scotland, did accept my family. Even today been kick out of the Scottish Y-DNA project. Have been able to show that Germany does not have a controlled media environment. With http://gorrenberry.com/proto-germanische-r-u106-haplogroup-dna-elwald-elliot/ and the mechanics of search engines, those people of the German language along with the PoBI (inter-national group which worked together on the People of the British Isles study, with top statistical gathering methods out of Oxford, University, London http://www.peopleofthebritishisles.org/nl6.pdf) , are so advance to the Scottish FTDNA group, it isn’t funny anymore.
Especially when people are reacting to me because I said someone told me that the Irish thought the Vikings were the ones to spread the red hair. Obviously I living out away from the Irish community can not confirm the statement as having truth, only can show that someone being “Irish”, giving the mapping would have viability, in making such a statement, accurate or not. On the above it is felt for genealogical purposes, I can make the following statement; The Gaelic speaking Scots, are the basic people which brought the red hair to Nova Scotia (new Scotland), Canada.
Garth there is; Was mentored many years ago, by one of the top, on one hand gypsum, genealogists, in the world, his name was Oliver Campbell, at the time living in North Carolina, but from Nova Scotia, Canada. Nova Scotia, with companies such as US, and Nat’l Gypsum, supply wallboard plants along the eastern sea coast with gypsum. A very thick seam of high quality gypsum (hydrated calcium sulfate). See the Campbell, and the M(a)cDonald, are major surnames in the Gaelic highlands of Scotland, and knowing this, and from this being a genealogical site, one would likely know that Oliver Campbell’s family was most likely from the Scottish highlands and one could research that region for his family. It should be noted I respect good engineering skill, and in his day there was this individual which lived north of Canonby, on the west side of the Esk, which used, limestone which has a high compaction strength to build a peel tower. He mine the edge of a sink hole or hollow below which he built his tower, and powdered and kiln some calcium carbonate (limestone) at a plus 900 degrees Fahrenheit (about 500 centigrade), with a four inch (decimetre) seam of coal which lay below the limestone, and made a mortar. This structure was place in about 1525 within a meander just above this sink hole/hollow/hollas. He use to live at a place next high next to a ravine, called a gilknock, and people started to called this engineer Gilnockie. The king of Scotland, like Scotland does today trying to please England, but this king James the fifth, tried to please the king of England, so he wanted this engineer called Gilnockie, to meet with him, and they promise this engineer his safety. This king James V, invited all the barons to meet with him in Edinburgh, but he locked them up, and met with this engineer Gilnockie on a rig (ridge), and hung him and all the men with him. Today Scotland hasn’t seem to improve much, because Scotland unlike Germany is dealing with a controlled media environment. Take offense when they dishonestly hang an engineer. http://gorrenberry.com/hollows-tower-from-gilnockie/

For the different branches of Elliott; England, Scotland, and Ireland there are different arms. Arms of the Scotland Elliott is the shield of Redheugh-Stobs with the elwand on the bend, and the arm with the sword is on the Clan Elliot badge. After border pacification a Gilbert Eliott son of William of the Redheugh-Stobs Eliott family was knighted, and that family has a knights helmet which may be added. The clan chieftain, does not carry a title and is beneficial if it does not have one, because the chief serves the clan, not the clan with English aristocracy serving the chief. Am honored to have Arthur’s daughter Margaret as 29th chief. Her father Arthur was the 11th Baronet of Stobs, and the 28th Chief, so one can see for twenty-eight chieftain, only eleven baronets. So baronet does not a chieftain make, especially for most border Elliott of the world which nations do not have aristocrats.
The Elliots: The Story of a Border Clan : a Genealogical History Lady Dora Eliott of Stobs, Sir Arthur Eliott of Stobs Seeley, 1974 – 386 pages or his shorter version in 1986. Is a top resource, and Arthur Eliott of Stobs refers to the elephant at the crest of the arms for the English Cornwall, St Germains; Elliott, but I noted in example above the Irish have the elephant. The elwand comes from the Armstrong in their chronicles stating the they were called by what is on the shield. At times the Elwald were referred to Elwand, or Elwandis which means land surveyor in the sixteenth century, which carried a seal as today for certified land surveyors. The Elwald where called Elwand in Northumberland before it was put on the the Redheugh-Stobs shield, in the sixteenth century, in which the “el” was the Edinburgh standard in length, and the “wand” for wand, like a rod or like in a yard stick. Since Lord Lyon does not seem to recognize Clan Crozier, and Clan Nixon. Being of a Middle March Clan like Crozier and Nixon are, this speaks for the authority of Lord Lyon from a border Reiver, American standpoint. Been over four centuries since border pacification.

There are two Braidley, one own by Martin in Teviotdale, marked on the clan map, and the other between Gorrenberry and The Hermitage Castle. The land in Teviotdale, was likely purchased by the Gorrenberry Ellot with Branxhold Scot(t) assistance, who rode with for an ancestral Martin Ellot which lived in Broadlee, between Gorrenberry and the Hermitage Castle. This land of Broadlee called Braidley was passed from Archibald of The Hermitage to his brother William of Cavers to the Patrick Hepburn called Bothwell first of the Bothwell line of The Hermitage Castle. Should be noted that Martin Ellot intern chief, needed to live near the Hermitage Castle in order to provide defense for it, and the nearby Gorrenberry Ellot Gang, were part of his grain (rode with him). Records show that the Bothwell leased land to Simon, Martin Ellot oldest son. Martin servicing the castle’s defenses may not have needed a lease. Martin moved to Prickenhaugh, across from his brother Robert’s family of Larriston he built a tower. Living at Broadlee, and owning land in Teviotdale of Braidley, the Anglo-Saxon name Broadlee, in reference to a valley broad on the leeward east side, like Braidleyhope is, since Martin was referred to “of” Braidley in Teviotdale, living in Broadlee, started calling Broadlee, Braidley, and the name east of the Hermitage Castle of Broadlee, became Braidley named after the land Martin Ellot owned of Braidley in Teviotdale.
Do not think my matches map at twelve markers, showing distribution of Fermanagh, Antrim, and Down, is accidental, and feel if other Elliott think they are Ulster Scots, would recommend them to look at their matches map for twelve markers for Ulster-Northern Ireland, and see if one has a basically Fermanagh, Antrim, and Down distribution structure.
Per capita displacement from Scotland and Northern Ireland to Irish Republic and England is 27 to 2, showing displacement away from the Scottish Border. Even with some bias, displacement of DNA is predominately, Scots and Ulster. Earlier, not dated.
The name Aliot with an i/y originated in Aliot of southern France. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Aliot,+64330+Taron-Sadirac-Viellenave,+France/@43.5117307,-0.2647848,15z/ http://www.geopatronyme.com/cgi-bin/carte/nomcarte.cgi?nom=Aliot&submit=Valider&client=cdip When the name became Eliot, it work it’s way into Breton, France, and St Germain, England; http://www.geopatronyme.com/cgi-bin/carte/nomcarte.cgi?nom=Eliot&submit=Valider&client=cdip It is this name which in Ulster, they used to insert and “i” into Ellot to make Elliot. http://www.therjhuntercollection.com/resources/muster-rolls-c-1630/search-muster-rolls/ with adding an “l” to Eliot the two names though of different origins, like the El(l)iot(t), origins poem, became to have the same spelling Elliot, also Elliott with an added “t”. Jesse, the name Eliot, evolving into Elliott, could easily been picked up in Northern France, the basic region to which Flanders towards east border is a part of.
In many cases when a surname is adopted, it takes in the grouping of the region. If it happens to be on the coast at ports, this is where one is likely to find the greatest diversity, heterogeneity in the Y-DNA, and that is likely where a name change may occur, like from Aliot to Eliot. The name Eliot being Breton-St German, is of a coastal adoption origins, and at the time, your E-M35 which if in the region, would likely be of a seaman which traveled would have been taken in to the adoption structure. To find where my Y-DNA was at the time of adoption, is was compared to surnames which did not have as large as SNP diversity as the surname El(l)iot(t), like Gresham (Grisham, Grissom of Norfolk), Cave (north and south, Cave, East Riding Yorkshire), and Scarborough of England. http://gorrenberry.com/geographic-surname-dna-correlation/. This showed likely surname adoption from Norfolk to most likely Yorkshire, Lincolnshire inclusive. The surnames Gresham (with variants), Cave, and Scarborough along North Sea, show near where my surname would likely have been adopted, and they had about 25% NPE like expected. When Y-DNA takes on surnames, it becomes a whole different model than that of not having surnames as with genetic statistic, as in the PoBI People of the British Isle, made up of a diverse group of genetic statistical scientist, extremely careful in their sampling procedures. Good sampling makes for good modeling, and dependable answers to SNP migration models for PoBI. In addition of surnames it becomes a whole other model. The more different the SNP, the more different places the surname evolved from. With about 75% of the same SNP, if the surname has locality, and census concentration is in the area, then it is almost certain the surname came from that locality. Census concentrations, do not move far from their original localities, unless there are something else such as battles for the surname Dunbar, border pacification for the Graham and Armstrong of Dabatable Lands, or being cut off from the port on the River Tweed, which once the border was set, travel into Scotland from the thriving community of Old Roxburgh, west of Kelso, for the Ker(r). The displacement from the Scottish Border, into west Scotland, unto Ulster, or across into England can be detected by the PoBI project, and Y-DNA distribution of matches of families which have been through it.
http://bigwhy-cultural-finest.over-blog.com/2016/06/le-clan-des-elliot-ecosse.html Translation from the French; The Elliot Clan (Scotland) Posted on 25 June 2017 by jean david michon in history, Scotland, celtic Because my son’s name is Elliot …. The origin of the surname Elliot is obscure, perhaps due to much of the genealogy of the Eliott clan in Scotland. The Elliot Clan Society generally agrees that the name comes from the city and the Elliot River in Angus, Scotland. Other sources suggest that it may be derived from a French form of Elias, which is itself derived from the biblical name “Elijah”. Yet other sources claim that the Scottish names (Eliott, Elliot) comes from the transformation of the Elwold name. There are also writings in the Domesday Book of the name spelled “Ailiet”, thought to come from an old English name “Æþelgeat” (meaning “noble door”) and leading to English and Scottish the given name spelled “Eliat” , which in turn leads to the modern alternative spelling of the name “Elyot”. Legend has it that the extra “t” in Eliott arose when a branch of the Eliotts adopted Christianity. The “t” was actually meant to be a cross. According to the Viking folklore (Sagas) Elliot and Armstrong were the names of the first twin boys born to an Icelandic princess and begotten by a polar bear. Legend has it that they were the first Vikings and there is an oath of blood between the 2 brothers & the 2 clans, if ever one calls on the other in a time of need, they are bound by this oath, kill or die for the other. There is an old Christian tradition in the Elliot clan, to baptize all male infants, plunging their entire bodies, by the right arm. In the event that they ever have to kill for the clan, they must do it with their right arm only, and remove that arm, before (or at the time of) death, in order to respond to their creator with a clear conscience. Hence the right arm holding the cutlass or falchion on the emblem. Their motto is: FORTITER AND RECTE is in French “COURAGEUSEMENT, AND JUST TITLE ….. The Lord is my God (Elijah in Hebrew). Keith Elliot Hunter16 / 07/2017 14: 00Answer The results of the Elliot DNA Project show that the Elliot are of Celtic-Breton origin. The name is the result of the ‘deformation by francization’ of the oldest Breton name Elegoët, which is itself a variant of the name Halegouët or Halgoët, the other variants are Allegouet, Elegouet, Alleouet, Elleouet, Helliot, Aliot etc. The Alliott and Allott variants are mainly found in Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Lancashire. All Elliot (Eliot, Eliott or Elliott) are the descendants of the Breton mercenaries who participated in the conquest of England by William the conqueror, Duke of Normandy, in 1066. Gives reason for me at this time to be Armstrong.

Rich Rucker, Of this group Rucker Armstrong b.1770, d. aft 1831, Augusta/Greenbr VA This it is felt by me one of the finest question asked by someone, and both Rich Rucker and I were kicked out of the Armstrong group, though my membership is in the Armstrong clan, because they except the Crozier as Allies, and the Elwald line. One can be lead by the Armstrong, but you are only fooling yourself if you think they can be lead. Rich Google “Clan Armstrong”, go to images, and see how well your question rates with the Armstrong. Those who head the DNA do not lead the clan. Czech Republic-Czechia is showing in another study as being strong. Note; I like to be on the conservative side with my numbers. For the family name Rücker there are a total of 124 entries in the Reichstelefonbuch of 1942. MDA Johannes Rucker (Rücker), d.1514 Rothenburg, Germany. One marker off in 25 markers. Over 800 years to be conservation, should be related. Armstrong in https://archive.org/details/chroniclesofarms00arms shows Germany as on place of the Fair Bear variant story, which follows into the Anglo-Danish, north of the I-M253 Fairbairn, and the Dabatable Lands, unto Fermanagh Ulster. Rich you and I seem to correlate well with “The Chronicles”.
Elliott split to North, county Antrim, where the Gaelic Speaking Argyll Scots, were many generations of County Argyll Scotland, and County Antrium Ulster referred to as the first Scotti. Antrim and Down, of the Gaelic Highland Scots, and of the Border Scots, is the place where the language of the border Scots is preserved today. http://gorrenberry.com/armstrong-elliot-crozier-nixon-johnson-graham-ulster-scot/ Scots in region became Presbyterian. The family of my line went to Fermanagh, and we were Anglican, many later on Episcopalian, the Methodists. This too is a region of Armstrong, and Elliott. It is felt that the Argyll, and Border Elliott Y-DNA is both found where the Ulster-Scots is spoken today, in the northern Ulster Counties. It is not that you are of Argyll, as an Elliott but the Argyll Y-DNA, and Elliott Y-DNA share Ulster-Scot speaking counties such as Antrim, Down, and Donegal, of Ulster. Being of Fermanagh, do not quite fit the description, of having my Y-DNA in group, but if you have any relatives of North Carolina, you may want to consider; https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/argyll-colony-north-carolina/about The admin is great, but that co-admin is sure questionable.
Name spelling brought to attention by James V. Elliott, http://www.elwald.com/clan-elwood-ellwood/ Thomas Elwold, Elwolde, or Elwoulde, of Queens College Glasgow in the fifteenth century; https://archive.org/details/queenscollege01magruoft 
AT TIME OF BORDER PACIFICATION, WITH THE MAKING OF THE MIDDLE SHIRES BY KING JAMES THE SIX OF SCOTLAND, WHO BECAME ALSO KING JAMES THE FIRST OF ENGLAND, THERE WHERE TWO GROUPS OF ELLIOTT IN THE KINGDOMS; The Briton Aristocratic, Barony ELIOT, and the Elwald, Anglo-Scandinavian ELLOT of the the Borders and Angus. After border Pacification and extermination of the Border ELLOT, and even extermination of The Cowie of Gorenberry, it seems like the only ELIOT left behind in today’s Scotland are the Breton Eliot, ELIOT. The Armstrong of the UK recognize CLAN CROZIER and The Elwald, ELLOT, so today I am an Armstrong, because the Armstrong and the Crozier are family and what I am is a family historian, a genealogist. Not a historian, or not someone which figures family history can be done by only using DNA measurements. It is said a borderer puts family before kingdom, so I guess I take pride in being a borderer, and the UK Armstrong are of my family, and they migrated along with my family. One does genealogical research to find there way back home, but on the ancestral borderlands they are trying to desecrate my ancestral lands of Gorrenberry, with industrial electric turbines, of a Windy Edge wind farm. Been able to find my way back home to northern Germany. Guess in the borderlands excepting the Armstrong and Bauld Buccleuch, which I call “Buck”, and some of those Scott. it seems like there is not a need to preserve heritage for future generations. So in the borders among the aristocratic, barony oriented Eliot, not Elliot, like they may think they are, because the Elliot are of Elwald-Ellot origins, not of the Breton Eliot origins. In what is felt vanquished Elwald-Ellot of the borderlands, still the Cowie of Gorrenberry, even though they think I died off, with the Gorrenberry Ellot, at the time of death there were Gorrenberry Ellot living in Tullykelter, Ulster. Though the Armstrong are the Unvanquished, with the unvanquished one must have the vanquish, and guess like my many great Daniel Elliot banished from both kingdoms in 1607, I am also like Clan Crozier, which adopted me like my many great Clementis Hobs, of Gorrenberry, am of the vanquished.

Ray Irwin, wanted to have Dale Dodds, see this amazing piece of research done by Clan Irwin Surname DNA Study- Background FTDNA James M Irvine, group administrators, which included Dodd/Todd, in their separation out of the NPE Non Parental Events, showing a linkage to the Clans along the borders, best known as Border Reivers. Both Carruther, on the west border and Fairbairn on the east border show a strong I-M253 impact, which may give some credence of the Armstrong-Fairbairn story.

Combining genealogy, and SNP DNA, testing by FTDNA Big-Y and outside resources. One can get Big-Y results through other labs besides Family Tree DNA. Using these results to verify branch points, at documented date of Daniel Elliot of Salem Trials of March 28, 1692, for Daniels, first son Daniel, and sixth son of seven Johnathan which I am descended from, plus an older brother to Daniels father Daniel which is Robert, gives a branch point for the Boyling Rock , Portsmouth, NH, and cross river, Eliot Neck, Kittery, Maine, Baptist, which were baptized in Boston, and went down to Charles Town (Charleston) SC, and started those southern Baptize. Yes, the southern Baptize have roots in Boston, MA, with R-U106 Elliot in them.

Fourth cousins, James Donald Elliott, and my father Loren Spencer Elliott, decease about two years ago, are listed in the 2010 Elliot Clan Society directory. Once removed from James Donald Elliott, which has test 37 markers, in 37 markers we are as distance of one off.

….., this may show you from which group utilized the Yseq for their sampling, from the Border Reiver FTDNA group. FTDNA shows how far downstream these individuals were tested. Because they were suggest by tester to utilize Yseq, showing it would cost less, the results are not recorded as their FTDNA values. This would show a result of, would also be S16361 or downstream, A6719, A6722, or A6724, and for individuals such as Robert P. Elliott, and anyone overseeing FTDNA projects such as R-U106 to keep the data line out of publication. As a branch point and since I paid for the DATA, Robert P. Elliott or anyone associated to the Scotland, and, R-U106 FTDA groups as administrators or co-administrators, are not approved by me to use my data-base of over 2,000 individuals http://www.familytreedna.com/my/family-tree/share?k=WbDsW3grHz1XjsL2GsrWhQ%3D%3D, (it should be noted other people, not the LDS, have placed dad’s recent information online. For computer security, do not give genealogical information.)or my FTDNA results, in any of their published studies until I am reinstated into the Scotland FTDNA group, and the above individuals are listed with their downstream results via Fseq testing of at least S16361, and noted that they have an equivalent for SNP testing as the Big-Y. Particularly I myself, as a family history genealogist, not a lab tester like the those administrators of R-U106 FTDNA which are acting like they are testing mice, for publication, which want the SNP information to be their own, not of those of the Daniel Testimony Group which purchase it. This is a strong indicator, that they want a monopoly of the information over other “so called” academics. It is enough to be refugees of a witch trail then to go through this corporate pseudo genealogical test from so called academics, and pay for the information because of we are family oriented. For those academics to get the full results of the data, because, we of the Daniel group were doing the study for family, by paying for the study, and not being told the results would not show up on FTDNA.
Note; Only one individual is listed with R-S16361. Who do you suppose that is?

Lineage-sheet-by-James-Donald-Elliott In 2010 both James Donald Elliott, and dad, Loren Spencer Elliott (4th cousins), were proud to be an active part of the Elliott Clan Society. Dad, died about 2 years ago, and this is a link to his genealogical
material which I have embellished. genealogy-by-dad-Loren-S-Elliott 
The Armstrong, the father of the clan chief and it is felt that the Clan Eliott Chief also, recognizes the Elwald-Ellot line of today’s Elliott, which I am apart of. Migrating with Armstrong, from Germany as Anglo-Dane, into Northumbria, then became apart of the Scottish borderlands, when a border was placed between, Scotland and England. Family was adopted by an ie Clement Crozier, living on Gladstanis lease land, previous to purchase by my family, of Horsleyhill. He became known as Clementis Hobs, and moved to Gorranberry, with and Archie “Keen” Elliott. Rejected as Armstrong similar to what happen to the Jews, during WWII, banish from both kingdoms, as many Elliott were to make way for a Middle Shires, moved on to Ulster, Fermanagh, where Neil Armstrong’s family is from, then on to Sutton, MA, USA living near a Martin Armstrong.Do things by measurement, and recognition. Since online;
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clan_Eliott has this link;
http://www.electricscotland.com/webclans/dtog/elliot2.html inseated of;
http://www.electricscotland.com/webclans/dtog/elliot.html which censors freedom of speech, and does not recognize Clan Crozier, like the Armstrong, my membership, unlike dad’s Loren Spencer Elliott is not in the Elliot Clan Society, but in the Armstrong Clan Society. Though I have the surname Elliott, it does not make me an Elliott, when Clan Crozier, and the Elwald-Ellot, line is not accepted by Clan Elliott, but Clan Armstrong. Do you know what it makes me an Armstrong, and I am proud of. To the Clan Elliot Society, it makes me a “Cowie of Gorrenberry”, something in the past they said that died, but were at the time living in Ulster. The Gorrenberry Elwald-Ellot line and Clan Crozier, as far as the Armstrong the Unvanquished are concerned are vanquished to Clan Elliot Society, excepting for the chief, which branches into the line. Best, I can figure it she is my seventeenth cousin, twice removed.
