Hartness

Value: This most interesting surname is Scottish, and is a locational name from an unidentified place, probably named from the Olde English personal name 'Hereca', or the Olde English 'hearg', pagan shrine, harrow, plus the second element 'naess, ness', the Olde English word for headland, cape. In the churchyard of Dalgarnock, near Thornhill, are several tombstones of people of this name, who were mostly tenants of the farms of Locherben and Mitchellslacks, in the parish of Closeburn. The first recording of the surname appears relatively late, in the early 17th Century (see below), while James Hearkness married Jane Wawby at the church of St. Mary, Carlisle, Cumberland, on April 30th 1678. One James Harkness of Locherben was leader of the band of Covenanters who rescued some Covenanters from Royal troops in the Pass of Enterkin, while they were being conveyed to Edinburgh for trial, in 1684. His brother Thomas was executed in the Grassmarket of Edinburgh in 1685 for his part in the affair. A branch of the family emigrated from Dumfriesshire to Ulster in the 17th Century, and settled finally in Co. Limerick, Ireland, where the family of Harkness of Garryfine still possess lands. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Barbara Harkkness, which was dated June 29th 1617, marriage to Robert Dowthwaite, at St. Andrew's, Penrith, in Cumberland, during the reign of King James V1 of Great Britain, 1567 - 1625. 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

Carolina"s noble in her heart.
A thousand years ago she"d be a queen:
Royal in her social grace and art,
Outside unblemished, inside all serene.
Lovers line the streets of her domain
In waiting for a glimpse of her affection.
No one but one shall that sweet gift retain,
As all stare helplessly at her perfection.
