Chestnutt

Value: This most interesting name, although a rare English surname, is of Old French origin. It is a topographical name for 'a dweller by the chestnut tree', from the Middle English 'chesteine', from the Old French 'chastaigne', ultimately deriving from the Greek 'kastanea', meaning 'nut of Castanaea', and in the modern sense means 'chestnut'. This was also found as 'chester nut' in Middle English, while it was spelt 'chesnut' until the early 19th Century. Topographical surnames were among the earliest created, since both natural and man-made features in the landscape provided easily recognisable distinguishing names in the small communities of the Middle Ages. Early recordings of the surname include the marriage of Archibald Chestnut and Judith Funderil, on May 13th 1758, at Trinity Church Parish in New York; the christening of John, son of Richard and Jane Chesnutt, on May 25th 1760, at York Springs Adam in Pennsylvania; while James, son of Thomas Chesnut, was christened in 1764, at Renshaw Street in Liverpool. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Adam Chasteyn, which was dated 1279, in the 'Cambridgeshire Hundred Rolls', during the reign of Edward 1, known as 'The Hammer of the Scots', 1272 - 1307. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to 'develop' often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.


POEMS WITH NAMES

Maybe it"s a little strange that I
Am now the only one whose day of birth
Remains a holiday. I don"t know why
That honor should be mine alone. My worth
Is certainly no more than Washington"s,
Nor do I more than Lincoln days deserve.
Let me then suggest a change: Once
Unmoored from my name, let the holiday serve
To honor not the person but the cause,
Healing racial wounds, pursuing justice,
Examining the morals of our mores,
Revisiting the pain of prejudice.
Kings require homage; this king would
Instead be an occasion for remembrance:
Not of me, but of all who fought for good,
Giving “Freedom Day” its proper sense.
