Though I live in New Mexico, USA, my ancestry is from The Hill. Start with the name Lawis Jok, which means John Elwald of Hermitage Hill, previous origins to the Reformation. How do I know that;
Though it may be said that law, means a rounded hill;
Contours show a rounded hill at Ewart Law (Elwaldlaw).
Which is near Hume;
And Hume Castle;
The Hume/Home took their surname from the region;
The name use to be David de (of) Home, but became David Home.
It should be noted; when David Home received land just north of the Elwald (Ellot/Elliot) in 1436, this was about forty years previous to Robert Elwald receiving Redheugh to the south.
Johannis Elwald are in the Home sasine/deed, and the Elwartlaw/Elwaldlaw origins, which saids OE Alfwald or Aldwald;
More like; Ælfwald, origins of King/Saint Ælfwald, buried in the Hexam Abbey near Hume, all locations of Northumbria.
Alanus Elfwold is felt to have son Alan Elwald who had son Robert Elwald, likely the first chief of the Elwald Clan. The name evolved into a name of Wm de Aliot; Norman France locality, where Ellot inserted an “i” first for the Redheugh family ca The Union of the Crown then for other families of Ulster, and Borders, at about the English Civil War.
For the Elwald of Yorkshire, being Church of England accepting Saints they held onto the Saintly name Elwald much longer, of which bones are said to be buried in Hexam, Abbey.
But going onto Ulster;
One can see a Mortin (Martin) Ellot (not Elliot) is of John Hume, Knight in Barony de Magherboy 1630. Hamilton also of the same Barony.
The Rutherford are strongly tied to the Kerr, and my Y-DNA;
Robert P. Elliott has done excellent research in compiling this data.
The direction of Rutherford migration likely north from Rutherford on the border to Hunthill on to Rutherford North of Hunthill.
Though the Rutherford (Home sept) claim Hunthill;
It is felt that on the David Hume sasine/deed they are referred to as de (of) Rutherfurd, so it is felt that the name came from Rutherford on shown on the 1654 map of being north of Hunthill.
Ferniehirst Castle, is known to be; Home of the Kerrs, with my Y-DNA coming close to bother Rutherford, and Kerr, Y-DNA, it is felt that my family was of this region also.
About 1544, Clement Crosar (Crozier) of Stobs, Robert Elwald (Ellot) of Redhuegh, and the Armstrong resettled from England some of the Hunter family to Hunthill, and some of the Rutherford in returned where resettled from Scotland to England.
Though Martin is an important name to my Elwald family;
As shown as John Elwald rector of University of St Andrews, support to Martin V.
Martin Ellot acting Clan Chief who founded Braidley (Broadlee, and wide valley, in which it is felt that the cap limestone may have come from to construct the Hermitage), and rode with Buccleuch.
The family likely moved onto knight’s John Hume, near Hamilton land in Magerboy Ulster, given the name Mortin (Martin) Ellot is found there.
The Armstrong seem to have it right this time. There information on the Elwald, seems to be accurate, and travels with my Y-DNA.
I know there are Elliot Clan Societies, but been trying to get them to change the location of Braidley for more than two years. The Armstrong along with today’s Buccleach which Martin fought on the side of knows where Braidley is.
The two origins has been recognized for many years, but it is felt that these Societies are leaning towards one origin and that would be The English, and not The Scottish/Northumbria Origin.
Hope the Home, and the Rutherford will ride with the Armstrong Clan, and Buccleuch to stop these windmills on the Hill of the Elwald/Elliot, before they come to Hume Hill, and by then they can not be stopped.
It is possible for a windfarm to be placed near Hume Castle given following;
Hume and Holm/Holme to become Home.
It is felt that the Home of Ulter came from Hume of the eastern Scottish Borders;
No Holm(e) found in 1630 Ulster muster.
It is felt that Holm/Holme, originated near Holme, England, near the Danish are of West Riding (Danish region), of Yorshire which Lancashire County was once part of. It should be noted Holm are found in Northern Scotland.
Holm are found in Northern Scotland an felt to migrater up from the Holm in the south.
It is felt in some cases the names Holm(e), and Hume became Home, in a regional sense.
