Response from the one above;

On Clan Historian QuintusPetillius

The Clan Eliott Wikipedia has been high jacked it does not contained history of  THE NAME, as expressed by the chief’s father and grandmother;


Basic to THE NAME on in the History of The Elliot Clan Society;

Hopefully people will realize the Clan Crozier does not need to remain a vanquished clan and should be Unvanquished as their allied clan the Armstrong are and will speak up for them.

What I was trying to say which included that which has been censored;

Clan Elliot Origins

Please share.

On Wiki Clan Elliot website  12/9&19/2015

It is even basic to the German Wikipedia Clan Elliot website;

Nach der Legende kommt das Extra-“t” in Elliott von der Bekehrung der Elliotts zum
Christentum und soll ein Kreuz symbolisieren. Die unterschiedliche Schreibweise wird in diesem Reim verdeutlicht:

The double L and single T
Descent from Minto and Wolflee,
The double T and single L
Mark the old race in Stobs that dwell.
The single L and single T
The Eliots of St Germains be,
But double T and double L,
Who they are nobody can tell.
Robert Bell dichtete in “The Book of Scots-Irish Family Names” hinzu: “For double L and double T, the Scots should look across the sea!”

By not having this saying which identifies all Eliot, Eliott, Elliot, and Elliott the web page has been high jacked.

Armstrong Fairbairn I-M253 Y-DNA

Norman Barony Naming Convention Correlating Y-DNA Used to Find Pre-Surname Northumbria-East Anglia Entry Location.

A barony naming convention would explain why the Normans called it the Battle of Hastings instead of naming it for the battlefield. The battle took place in the Rape (barony) of Hastings on land that was subject to Hastings’ jurisdiction. The Saxons called it the Battle of Senlac according to Orderic Vitalis, after the local name of the place. Senlac means “sandy loch” and would fit the wide, sandy Brede Valley flood plain through which the estuarine Brede River meandered.

Wm de Aliot is where the Eliot name is of southern most England; St German/Port Eliot is an example of this convention.

In 123o there are Elwold in Rye/Rya, near where The Battle of Hastings took place.

Scandinavians were apart of The Battle of Hastings (Rye/Rya), and the Battle of Stamford Bridge near York, 1066, which leads me to believe my Y-DNA, came into the region about this time.

Norman Barony Naming Convention is being used to find the locality in where my Y-DNA line arrives in the British Isles.

The two localities which are surnames and place names are Gresham Y-DNA L21, and Scarborough Y-DNA U106.

By Tim Lambert

This is usually a corruption of burh, which meant a fort of fortified place. Aylesbury was Aegel’s burh or burgh. Boarhunt was burh funta the spring by the fort. Narborough in Leicestershire was nor (north) burh. 

Like in Scarborough;


One can see a fort on the shield.

Ham meant village or estate. Rotherham was the village by the Rother.

Like in Gresham.

Grisham of Gresham

Andrew Fletcher Grisham still lives in ancestory of James Gresham, b 1420 d 1497 of Holt of Gresham region, and felt that the name Gresham came from living in Gresham previous to surname adoption and may have first been a ….de (of) Gresham then became the Norman barony of Gresham surname Gresham.

U106 P311 M269 grouping

Scarborough (U106) North Yorkshire is like my surname Elliott goes north, and it’s geograpic location is the furthest north,  N&S Cave (M268) East Riding, Yorkshire could go anywhere the three geographic localities are but is in the center,  Gresham (L21) Norfolk, origins.



It should be noted to have these sizable numbers in geographic name groups, indicates all names are likely beyond applied surnames, and the ones which are mapped, names which are used, their families are likely from the corresponding given localities, and this information would be of value to those names listed knowing the their origins is from and geographic-surname; Norman barony location, which is now a town or city.

Different surnames are likely beyond genealogical data, and previous to surname adoption.

 Regions of likelihood for people carrying Y-DNA of Daniel Elliot who testified in Salem to be from;



Thank you, Robert P. Elliott for more information, though chose to alter name of cluster to the Dan Cluster, feel the name is more extensive and takes away from the witch trials Daniel.   Dan is a nickname for Daniel, and an alias for Andrew which it is felt the name evolved from.

The name Andrew Elwald appears as a witness when Robert Elwald receives land of Redheugh and Lariston.  Most used name by the Elliott and Armstrong families is John, and a John Elwald was rector of St Andrews University 1418, and became rector of Kirkandrews (kirk; church) in the region of the debatable lands in 1423. It is the cross of St Andrews on the Scottish flag, and St Andrews is a Scandinavian saint mentored by St John, where forms of Johnson, and Anderson are popular Scandinavian names.

Though it is feel this is Robert’s (Bob’s) choice, I would rather call it after Andrew (Dan), and Daniel (Dan) the Dan Cluster.

Robert Elwald of Remington 1305 father Alan pledge of Jarum

Allen/Alan; Alan a surname found in Liddesdale in 1376 along with Alexandir Armystrand. Alanus Elfwoldus a Latin form of Alan Elwald found in Bec, Norfolk, East Anglia, 1248.  It is felt that and son of Elfwald named Alan likely to Elfwald as a surname then became Alan Elfwald.  In the same pattern for example a John the son of this same Alan could have became John Alan, and later John Allen.

As one can see that ca 1305, Robert Elwald of Rimington, Lancashire (of W. Riding Yorkshire in 1305) is the son of Alan, with a pledge Francis de (of) Jarum, the old Anglo-Saxon community of Jarrow.

An early forming of Alan Elwald near Crowland/Croyland may be found about 1125;

Robert Bell, links the Armstrong and Elliott, to Fermanagh, Ulster, (Northern Scots-Irish) Ireland.

‘Sheep stealers from the north of England’: the Riding Clans in Ulster by Robert Bell

In the answer of Rich Rucker’s question the people of the bear, and elk (moose), are linked.

From; Chronicles of the Armstrongs; : Armstrong, James Lewis Armstrong editor. It should be noted that surnames were not in use in 1165, and the group was referred to as Elwald (people of the wood(s)). The Elwald people where felt to be assign the surname Elwald in Liddesdale during the fifteenth century, and in the sixteenth century about the time of the Reformation the Anglo-Danish surname Elwald became the Norman-French surname from Elot to Ellot(t), with double “l“s and no “i“.

Belinda Dettmann (good question from Graham FTDNA Activity Feed)

Mark, you seem to match a group of Elliotts, so why wouldn’t your name be Elliott, which is of Scottish origin? Admittedly the R-U106 Elliotts are not in the largest Elliott line (which is R-L21>L193) and your lot could all have come from somewhere in Germany well back in time, but I suspect they came via Scotland.

Above links, a very small part of generations of research.

Stobs, Horseyhill, and Gorrenberry are of Scotland, late fifteenth, sixteenth, and very early seventeenth century.

Infinis has been approved, by a representative of the Scottish Government (a reporter), in the same fashion (a reporter) for the Scottish Border Fallago Rig, with obviously the same results to industrially being destructive to The Borderlands, by approving the Infinis Windy Edge wind farm between Gorranberry, and The Hermitage Castle on homeland of an acting Elwald/Ellot chief, in defense of Mary Queen of Scots/Bothwell’s castle The Hemitage Castle, by placing Windy Edge wind farm between Gorrenberry and The Hermitage Castle, on Martin Ellot’s homeland of Braidley.

PRESERVATION is what I believe in. Preservation of The Hermitage Castle region, to not be destroyed by industrialization, and my own Y-DNA Chromosomal Line, not be destroyed by corporate profits, which comes out of the DNA of many families which have placed DATA for their own used not to be told that the family line did not take that course. Family DNA if it does not support a part of the family lineal history then it is incorrect and can be utilized in a manner, of people of Norman, strata level, not of a shared genealogical information level, but in a manner to destroy the history already established the genealogy of a given family.
