HEATH FAMILY. 



An explanation of how the name Heath came to be used 
as a surname. 

In choosing the words to be used as names we can not 
(hscover any carefully wrought plan. Chance and human 
fancy ha\e i)layed their part. The word to be choisen was 
usually the suggestion of some fact connected with the birth 
of the person to be named — time, place, circumstance, some 
physical quality, or some fond hope of strength, bravery, or 
goodness entertained. In fact there is hardly an event, 
national, local, or personal; hardly a place or feature of a 
place: hardly a beast or bird or fish or tree or stream; hardly 
a point of the compass, occupation, or profession; hardl}- a 
physical or mental characteristic ; hardly a hobby that man has 
rode or a blunder that he has made that has not lent itself to 
the naming of some man. In early times one name was all 
that was necessary and in general is all that we find — David. 
Confucius, Plato, Cleopatra. Out of the more complex social 
and business relations grew the necessity for some system of 
naming which should be more satisfactory. For a time quali- 
fying the descriptive phrases were used as : John the Baptist. 
Peter the Hermit, John the Cook, William of Kent, John of 
the Heath, etc. Out of this ]3ractice and out of these phrases, 
by abbreviation, have grown our surnames. 

At first these additional words, like the personal name, 
passed aA\ay with the lives of their owners. But gradually 
these titles became part of their owner's personal property, 
and so passed on to their descendants, along with other pos- 
sessions. Bardsley says : '• Nor were those second desiena- 



tions, those wliicli we call sunianics as Ixiing" superadded to 
Christian names, at first of any lasting character, it was not 
till tlie eleventh, twelfth, thirteenth, or even the fourteenth 
centurv that they hecanie hereditary, that is. in any true sense 
stationary/' 

Heath comes under the classification of local surnames. 
By local surnames we mean surnames which tell us something 
of places or directions; where a person lives, some feature of 
the landscape ahout his home, or the place or direction troni 
whence he came. These names, we are told, were the tirst to 
become hereditary. 

The following explanation of the origin of tlie Heath 
name as a surname is found in the " lives of Isaac Heath and 
John Bowles," two church deacons of Roxbury, Alass. ; Heath, 
a pure Saxon word, the name of a plant or shrub of the genius, 
erica, of many species soon came to signify a place overgrown 
with heath, and finally has a more general signihcation, mean- 
ing a place overgrown with shrubs of any kind. The most 
N-eneralMe record of England, the Doomsday Ijook, proves 
that it was very early used to designate indixiduals or fami- 
lies who may have lived on a heath, and in time, as surnames 
came into use to distinguish families, and became hereditary. 
Heath was attached to some by accident of their locality, and 
thus by its origin must be classified with local surnames. The 
same circumstance gave rise to the name in different localities, 
and thus affords no evidence of any consanguinity at a remote 
period. Heath is a very common surname in England. 

I. \\'ii.ij\M Heath of Nazing, England, came to this 
country from London, arrixing on the ship " Lion " Septem- 
ber i6th. 1632. with his wife ^lary and five children. He

was made a freeman March 4th, 1633. He was a representa- 
tive in 1634, 1637, 1639. 1640, 1641, and 1642. "An able,

" Written by a Friend of the Family." 

Aaron was taken prisoner three times in the Revolution- 
ary war. The last time while acting the part of a scout, and 
would then surely have lost his life had he not played the fool 
and made them believe that he was insane. When told to 
hitch the oxen to a cart he insisted on hitching them with their 
heads facing the cart. This, with other such maneuvers on 
his part made them feel that he was not worth his keeping and 
so they let him go. 

His war record, which follow^s, was taken from " Massa-
