Of; Daniel Elliot Cluster is being found  for those in the cluster as S12025  (received from RP Elliott).


In accordance to the previous Clan Elliot chief, Arthur Eliott there are two origins; St German (English Wm de Aliot, Norman Breton/Briton Aliot Eliot Elliot), and Elwald/Elwold (Scottish Scandinavian Elwald Ellot Elliot) orgins.



Though names origins of Eliot and Ellot to become Elliot, are mixed the following three graphics show basic concentration locations;

Note for consistency in following the concept, the first two pre-letters are el, and  –wald (forest/wood), is used for the suffix.

Personal names; Elchwald and Elgwald ca 900 (elk/moose of forest), surnames; Elfwald ca 1200 (elf of wood), Elwald ca 1300 (of wood; a lot measured by metes and bounds/ell and angles, making it a measurable forest), Ellot ca 1550 (a lot; lengths of side measured in Edinburgh, Scottish el/ell/eln, and angles measure with compass bearings), Elliot ca 1650 (of Ellot but an “i” is inserted giving merger to the Elliot derived from the Norman Eliot of Wm de Aliot).

Felt that many border names migrated towards the north, including Fairbairn, Elwald, Bell, Graham (village of felt/cloth likely wool, now Grantham) and others which some evolve border names of Armstrong, and Elliot.

As Scandinavians in a dominate Norman environment, these would travel as stories such as The Fairy Bear stories;


Croyland (land of huts)/Crowland seem to be near from where a lot of these pre-surname Germanic Scandinavians began their trek to the borderlands to join among others Scandinavians, such as the Danes, joining the Norsemen in the Cumbria/Cumberland region, and introducing their surnames to the borderlands.

My own theory is that we have been here in the
Northumbrian/ Borders region since Anglo-Saxon settlers
came across from northern Germany in the 5th to 8th
centuries. I base this on the fact that most of the 36 early
ways of spelling the name are Anglo-Saxon — Aelwold,
Ellwald, Elaund, Elwaird etc. The name continued written as
‘Elwalde’ with its variations into the 1500s when it became
Elyot, Eliot and Ellote. There are no recognisable Gaelic
spellings and only one Dalliot. I rest my case, but everybody
will continue to believe as they wish anyway.

The Germani: Germanic Peoples Origins and History



Linguists calculate that Proto-Germanic was spoken around 500 BC.16Donald A. Ringe, A Linguistic History of English: From Proto-Indo-European to Proto-Germanic (2006), p.67. A language develops within a communicating group. In the days before modern transport and the nation state, a communicating group could not cover a vast territory. The area in which Proto-Germanic evolved was far smaller than the spread of its daughter languages today. We would expect a linguistic boundary to also be a cultural boundary. So the finger points at the Nordic Bronze Age (1730-500 BC) as the cradle of Proto-Germanic. It was a comfortable cradle for many a year. The Nordic Bronze Age began in a welcoming warmth. An earlier climate shift made Southern Scandinavia as warm as present-day central Germany.

It is said in America, among Native Indigenous Nations one can not use Y-DNA to find which Indigenous Nation an individual is from, because of the mixing.

There is an American Plains Culture once dependent on the American buffalo, and today eats beef, and sheep.


Could people along the North European Plain be dependent on a large animal for food?

Could they have been dependent of the European elk (moose)?

Killing the American buffalo, and the European elk, is much like Border Reivers going after cows.

Anderson, Andersson R-U106-S12025

Daniel Elliot Cluster is being found  for those in the cluster as S12025  (received from RP Elliott).


Anderson Andersson Sweden US U106

There are two Anderson/Andersson, listed among the S12025 Daniel Elliot cluster.

Daniel name is felt to have been derived from Andrew where Dan is an alias for Andrew on the Scottish Borders, and borderers, were felt to be Catholic when arriving in the county of Fermanagh.

Then the county of Fermanagh became Anglican/Episcopalian. With Daniel of Tullykelter, of Anglican Archbishop Malcolm Hamilton land, it is felt that the border Scot,  Dan Ellot became the Ulster Irish which a Dublin spelling Daniel Elliot.

The name Andrew appears as a witness of Andrew Elwald, when Robert receives lands of Redheugh, Lariston, Hartsgarth and others.

It is felt the the name came from a John Elwald, rector Saint Andrews University in 1418, and became rector of Kirkandrews (church of St Andrews) of the Diocese of Whitethorne in 1423.  So Andrew was an important name to the family line since these times.

St. Andrew, was a disciple of the great St. John the Baptist, and the patron saint of Russia, and Scotland where the cross made by diagonals on the Scottish flag is referred to as Saint Andrew’s Cross.

The names of other forms in the Scandinavian nations of  Anderson; son of Andrew and Johnson; the son of John, follow the Scandinavian patronymic; surnames after the fathers as opposed to Norman surnames after the estate/barony, form of naming.

Though given my writings, the activity was high, been excluded with writings deleted from writing on Wikipedia.  Even though I am an Elliott and a second generation research genealogist, utilizing Y-DNA verification, and chromosomal reasoning of a marsh dwelling elk (moose) returning to ancient homelands near Berlin, people rather believe the elk (moose) then me. Guess I must be half as smart, but twice as bull headed as that elk (moose).
