One would think he would help others to break through this ‘brick wall’. Is it the sampling of the Ukrainians causing the difficulties?

Elliot Chief receives a tribute to her grandmothers at Greenville, SC

Forty-eight Elliot Clan Society members participated in the Chief ís Dinner on Saturday evening during the Greenville Games. Duringdinner, Elliot Clan Society member and South Carolina re-enactor, William Grissop, of Travelers Rest, South Carolina delivered a moving tribute to the Chief – honoring her Scottish Border and Southern Grandmothers. The Elliot Chief descends from a line of hereditary Chiefs back to the time of Robert the Bruce in the 1300s in Scotland. Through her Atlanta-born paternal grandmother, she also descends from many early South Carolina families who settled in that state before the American Revolutionary War. Here are the words Mr. Grissop shared with Margaret Elliott of Redheugh: Margaret Eliott is a daughter of the Scottish Borders, that fabled land that produced the men known as the Border Reivers or the Steel Bonnets. They were indeed men of steel. It need not be doubted that these men of steel sprang from, married and fathered women of steel. To even read casually of the Border history would make one wonder what sort of women were these who mothered, married and supported these men, the Steel Bonnets. These were strong women, resilient women, loving women. Were it not so, we of the Elliot Clan would not be here today. Our Chief, Margaret Elliott, is blood and sinew of these people. She is also blood and sinew of another proud line of strong women. Chief Margaret is also a Southern Girl! Her paternal grandmother was bornin Georgia and other grandmothers were born in South Carolina and Tennessee. (Being a native South Carolinian with much Georgia blood flow ing through my veins, I can readily state that this is about as much glory as one person can stand!) These women of the South have proven their glorious worth over the years.

Use to using a different format, but the above is and example of lands, including an insert-map showing Braidlee, from Anglo-Saxon Broadlee, meaning a valley broad on the leeward side. Wolflee also Anglo-Saxon, meaning the valley of the wolf. Yes, there were wolfs in the region. They introduced them around here and the Navajo grandmas shoot them for going after their sheep. Put chief Margaret Eliott raised in Stobs, but of Redheugh, in the same category if Scotland decides to reintroduce wolfs. Her husband seems to have a Polish wolfish type surname.

Though I may observe him, do not want to make any distinctive moves. Past British Army MI6 you know, but on the same family side.

May have bumped elbows on an Armstrong in the Aberdeenshire region. Finding that Eliott-Elliot may have land connection with Douglas-In-graham in region. Those Graham they are English an seem to not want to claim Armstrong-Elliot as family. Maybe the Nixon and Crozier seem to have English connections they find more acceptable.

Kind of like staying in the Forest with the Fosters, they are English and seem to be not offended to be related to Armstrong and Elliot, from the English side like those Grahams. It is the Hunter and wolf, for they are predators of the elk-moose, I must watch out for.

The Crozier seem to be Saxon along with the Thorleehope (valley of Thor, god of lightning Thunder Valley). A couple of Crozier seem to match their Y-DNA and are not R-L193. It seem like if you are not R-L192 and are R-U106, Anglo-Saxon they like to silence and exterminate you.  Mark Stephen Elliott


Daniel as a forename is not popular in Scotland. Many great in accordance with Douglas Scott of BC, Canada, Dand Ellot was banished from both Kingdoms in 1607, then shows up as Daniel Elliott, in Tullykelter, Co. Fermanagh, Ireland, as part of the Somerville Estate in-law to the Monea Hamilton. Names Somerville, and Ellott show up in 1610 Tyrone Muster, and a generation later in the Co. Fermanagh, Muster. James Somerville shows up in bother musters. 1610 James Somerville had son 1630 Somerville. Scots alias nickname for Andrew is Dand, Irish English it becomes Daniel from surname of Daniel-M’Daniel it may be obtained. Ellot family of Tullykelter were Anglican but nomally Catholic, from forenames show this, even the name in 1610 Ulster Muster of Co. Fermanagh, Marke Ellot shows this. Before 1650 the Scots used Ellot not Elliot with the Norman ‘i’. Daniel Elliott name in 1692 Salem Trials was spelled Elot, the ‘i’ was added likely because of a John Eliot (Eliot Hall Harvard) which came over on the Mayflower. Had a relative to a George Soul who’s ancestor those Armstrong may have melted in lead at Ninestanerig, 9 stone ridge. Did not seem to care much for this Soulis either. The Douglas and Armstrong seem to like, and this Douglas Scott who is from BC, Canada is active with the Hoik-Hawick Archaeological Society, and has this younger brother who is active also, and sings Scottish Ballads with this group called Scocha (Scott-Chapman), do not know being an elk-moose if I care for his middle name of Hunter, though I think he also is weary of the hunter.

Clan Crozier 1-6  Clan Crozier 7-13

Clan Crozier (crosier, croser, cros, etc.) is one of
the border reiving clans of Scotland, along with the
Armstrongs, Elliots, and Nixons. Some sources cite the
surname as a sept of the Armstrong clan, but the Scottish
Parliamentin 1587 identified the Croziers as a middle
march clan.[1]

An armigerous clan is a clan without a chief, and a sept is
a clan which follows a chief. So an armigerous clan like
Clan Armstrong, since it does not have a chief, does not
have septs. Clan Crozier, not having a chief by the
Lord Lyon King of Arms, is an armigerous clan allied with the
far more populous Clan Armstrong.

1 Name evolution
Croyser, Croiser, Crosier, Crozier.
Many of the earlier forms of the name were of Croyser or
Crosier (of Cros), had a common English language switch
of an “y” for an “i”. The name basically was Croyser then
Croiser, which means cross; one who lives near or bears

Croyser or Crosier has Old French origins, of Roman
Christianity the name Croyser, then Croiser has also
Old Scottish influence evolved from the Old French of,
Croice, Crois(e, n. Also: croyce, croys(e). [ME. croice,
croyce, crois, croys, croyz (14–15th c.), OF. crois, croiz.
Cf. Croce n.1] An earlier form of the word, which is croy
for the Croyser name; Cro, Croy, n.1 Sc. and Ir. Gaelic
cró fold, hut, Icel. kró sheepfold. Latinized as croa, croya
(12th c.).[3]
The meaning referring to hut, which developed the name
Croyser is insignificant in most of England where the
name is based on cross, but given the popularity of the
name in Yorkshire (York Mayor John Croser 1447)
with variants in Sweden, it is felt by people of Scandinavian
origins migrating to what is now Scotland, likely
applied the meaning of hut to Croyser that of hut builder.
The Croziers came from Normandy in 1066 with
William the Conqueror. Through the years, some moved northward
to the southern areas of Scotland where they became
established as a Border Clan. According to Scots
Kith and Kin,[5] Clan Crozier was in Liddesdale in the
14th Century.[6]
Example of Tyndale to Liddesdale-Treviotdale movement;
Clemy and John Croser (Crosier-Crozier), English
Tyndale Rebels resettled to Liddesdale-Teviotdale Scotland
with Clemy Croser, and Robyn (son of Rob of Redheugh)
Elwald, in 1540.[7][4]

 William le Gros Earl of Yorkshire (Count of Aumale)
died 1179 could easily be the influence of
the Croyser of today’s border region being of Yorkshire.
Name similarities exist between, Le Crosand Le Gros and today’s Crozier and Grozier surnames.
William le Gros, owned Scarborough Castle.Borough means fort and is symbolized on theshield of Scarborough. Scarborough is of AngloSaxonorigins, and people with the surname Scarborough
are known to be from Scarborough. The
Y-DNA of the people named Scarborough was used
to locate an entry point into the British Isles, of
an Elfwald/Elwald.[8]

Name version of Crozier with
a G; Grosar, Grosars, Grossars (RB Armstrong),
Gros, and Grozier, which OCR (optical character
recognition), sometimes read the upper case C as
a G, is questioned if the document is handwritten,
that it may have been transcribed in the past with
a C transcribed as a G. William le Gros, Count of
Aumale, was a powerful Anglo-Norman baron and
grand-nephew of William the Conqueror.

2 Name distribution
For the name Crozier a form of Crosier, one finds in YDNA

Family Tree DNA; Crozier and in the
family origins surname distribution maps that the name
Crozier concentrates itself along the Scottish Border and
Northern Ireland.[19]

Crozier-surname-distribution (1)
The counties in the British Isleswhich have the highest frequency of the name Crozier are Roxburghshire, which contains, Liddesdale, in Scotland,and Fermanagh, Ulster, Ireland.[20]
There is a smaller distribution,in southern England, and this could representwhat became Crozier coming from France. It should be
noted, of 13 Crozier tested Y-DNA, 11 are M-269, there
are two of the unique R-CTS11874 a William Crozier, of
Northern, Ireland and a John Crosier of Boston. There
were other listed in the Family Tree SNP[21]


one of each Kennedy, Loy, and Beckel (Germany). In Public Profiler
of World Names[22]
Loy shows Germany-YorkshireScotland-Northern
Ireland, Kennedy shows Scotland and
Northern Ireland, and Bickel shows Germany. With the
locality of the Crozier, as being Border/Ulster Scots,
this is indicative of Germanic-Danish Anglo migration.
Though the name Crozier of Le Cros in southern France,
and the name Eliot of Aliot in southern France, with
William Le Gros (Gros like Cros mainly of S France),
and William de Aliot[24] linked to William the Conqueror, in close proximity, in Liddesdale and Fermanagh,

it can be concluded that these families are of basically of
similar origins. Though surname acquisition has a French
Norman influence, their Scottish, Scandinavian origins is
more like their shared ally the Armstrong.[23]

2.1 Cros Cross
Surname by; World Family Public Profiler, shows the Surname
Cros, is more concentrated around, Le Cros in
southern France, but when an “s” is added to make Cross
the name distribution is of England, not Scotland. Similar
results are found with de Aliot, being of southern
France, but when the “A” is changed to an “E” then the
name becomes Eliot of England, but not of Scotland.
Cross DNA; Family Tree DNA, and World Family results
are showing a large proportion, but not being as large
as for Crozier as being
R1b-M269, Y-DNA.[26] [27][25]

3 Historical distribution
It is found that the American family of Crozier descended
from the Croyser Clan, found on the banks of the (upper)
Liddel, in the Scottish borderlands[28]
at Riccarton, and Hudshouse.
In the sixteenth century the Crosars (Crozier) from upper
Liddesdale to Teviotdale, then onto Fermanagh,
Ulster, Ireland.

3.1 Riccarton

Locus Crozier; IDs valley of Liddesdale, by locus of Crozier.

In R. B. Armstrong’s History of Liddesdale, there is a
record of a Locus Croyser, but the word locus means locality,
and is listed under Valleys of Liddesdale in 1376,

giving the location of a valley of Liddesdale being where
the people referred to as Croyser lived.
Today this valley is believed to be called Riccarton Burn.
The spelling in William Croyser and Simon le Croyser
near Croyland, and in “locus Croyser” is consistent in the
fourteenth century, which strongly shows that the name
which originates in the Valley (locus/locality of a valley
in Liddesdale in 1376 by where the Croyser are living)
of the Croyser, originated in the Croyland region.
This valley now Riccarton Burn is where for ScottishIrish
Croyser (Crozier) surname adoption takes place. It
is guarded by the tower of the Croziers, known as Riccarton
Tower,[29] [30]

Surname seeding is when a surname is brought into a
region, and those without a surname adopt it. Among the
Navajo Native Americans a missionary from the midwest
United States brought the Elliott name to the Navajo
people. At the time of surname adoption a family of
Navajos took on the surname Elliott. Now there is a line
of Navajo Elliotts.

Surnames, showing popularity in Yorkshire; Croyser and
Elwald, though with many deviations which from these
standard spellings (norm given the centuries), developed
in today’s England near the beginning of the twelfth century,
and were brought into the north, previous to the
Declaration of Arbroath ca1320, where Croyser evolve
into Croiser, Crosier, lastly Crozier, and Elwald evolved into Ellot, Elliot, and some cases Elliott.
In the 14th century the name William (like William the
Conqueror) Croyser, is found in Bedford, County, in an
area not to far from Croyland. In the 13th Century the
name Elwald (i.e. Elliot) is found in the region of Rye
(Johannes (John) Elwold (Elwald) de (of) Rya (Rye).
ca1230 [31]), near where the Battle of Hastings took place,
and the Kerr which came to the borderland are said to be
from Normany. So it is felt a seed carrying the name
Croyser, came to the Valley of the Croyser, now Riccarton
Burn, in Liddesdale. Riccarton/Riccarton Mill
(Rickerton, forms of Richardtown) second home of the
Redheugh Ellot (Elliot) is near Larriston/Over&Nether
Laristown. [32] [33]


Riccarton, mistakenly Rakestonleis, but is Caddroun Tower.


Helcaldenburne is Caddroun Burn (Tower) where Rakestonleis
is of William Crosier in 1590.
In the 1376 Rent Roll were Ricardtoun superior, and Ricardtoun
inferior, and in 1541 rent rolls of Liddesdale
were Ricardtoncleuch, Over (superior) Riccarton (higher
in elevation), and Richardtoun, Nether (inferior) Riccarton
(lower in elevation).


Ricardtoun/R. Cleuch Crosar and Elwald
In Nether Riccarton Liddesdale 1541 rent rolls, was tenanted
by Martin Crosar, Patrick Crosar, Rolland Elwald
(i.e. Elliot), and William Elwald, and Over (upper) Riccarton was held by two Crosar farms. In 1576
an Andrew “Dande” Crosar was from Ricardtouncleuch.
In 1590 was a Will Croser of Ryckerton (also spelled
Rickerton).[34] [35] [36] [37]


Crozier and Ellot in Upper Liddesdale Blaeu 1654 map
At time Robert Elwald received land of 1484 a William
Gladstanis, are listed with the landholders, and John and
Quinton Crosar, are listed with the witnesses. It is
felt that in
The Death of Parcy Reed Synopsis; Parcy
Reed arrests the reiving outlaw Whinton Crosier
, itis felt Whinton is not a Crosier name, but the name
is Quinton. [39]

Robert Elwald (i.e. Elliot) is receiving
lands of Redhuegh, Over(superior higher in elevation)
and Nether(inferior lower in elevation) on above map
where both Larristons O&N, are near Riccarton O&N.[38]


Lariston tree of Redheugh, including Martin of Prickenhaugh,
pre-Stobs fire.
1586 Martin Elliot’s (intern Ellot clan chief) son Simon
had a lease of land from Earl of Bothwell (Liddesdale,
Braidlie). 1591 a Crown charter of Phillop in Selkershire
and Braidlie (Teviotdale). Martin was called “of”
Braidley, indication ownership of land of Braidley, but
living on the Braidley Bothwell Liddesdale lease Martin
supplied soldiers to the bordering Hermitage Castle. Simon
and Martin of Redheugh, built a tower of Prickenhaugh
in the region of Robert of Redheugh, now living
in Lariston N&O, and the Riccarton N&O Crozier.
It should be noted that a John Elwald who witness the
sasine (deed) of Robert Elwald of Redheugh, likely was
John Elwald of Thorlieshill, near Hudhouse of the Crosar
(Crozier), witness a Scott deed in 1488.[41][40]

The Crosar/Croyser (Crozier) and the Elwald (Ellot) were close. Thorsliehope was land of the Elwald like Gorrenberry

(next to Braidley) previous to Robert Elwald receiving
lands of Redheugh, Larriston, Hartsgarth and other.
Jamie Telfer in The Fair Dodhead Telfer is sent to meet
Martin Elliot, of Prickinhaugh, as shown on the Blaeu
map as being near N&O Ricarrton, and N&O Lariston.
The Pedigree According to the Genealogy of 17047
(previous to Stobs Castle fire of 1712) ELLIOTS OF
LARISTON ; Robert Elliot of Lariston, the 15th, had a
feud with the Armstrongs. Married a daughter of Buccleuch.
His next brother was Martin Elliot, of Prickinhaugh.
The Crozier Hudshouse is in the vicinity of Slaughtree,
home of a Margaret (Meg, Megg, Maggie) Kidd mistress
to Redheugh (Robert 15) now of Larriston, which
he builds a tower for her at Hartsgarth. Second son living
in Larriston with his father Robert chief 15, is William
then of Hartsgrath with his mother (rf sansine/deed).
Next son Gilbert “Gib-bie of Golden Garters” is said to
be born of a father of Larriston, and a mother of Buccluech
(Kidd’s curse, Kidd’s wall). Though a Hob Elwode
(i.e. Robert Elliott), lived and was taken in by
his uncle Clemyt Crossier (i.e. Clement Crozier) of Stobbes
(Stobs) became Clementis Hobs, Gavan Ellot was
first Ellot owner of Stobs, second husband to Gilbert’s
mother, purchases Stobs for his grandson (first son of
Gilbert) William. Gilbert marrying Mary “Fendy” first
cousin to Buccleuch gave William the blood of a Buccleuch.
This William (has first son Sir Gilbert) changed
his support to Buccleuch (King Charles II), then hung
himself so the Cromwellian Parliamentarians, would not
take his estate.[42]

From this William, to indicate loyalty
to the Royalist, and to differentiate the name from
the Parliamentarian, Sir John Elliot which died in the
tower of London, the family of the Clan Elliot chief of
Stobs/Redheugh spells their name Eliott.


Redheugh Elwald sasine (deed); Crosars witnesses.[43]

In Ulster, Ireland the name Crozier (1659, Croser 1630)
was introduced by settlers who arrived from England
and Scotland, especially during the seventeenth century
with strong associations with Counties Fermanagh and
The Scottish, and other border people followed a similar
path migration from The Liddel Water which is a


Lower Liddesdale, not showing Croziers.
Scottish-English border except in the Debatable Lands
and past Kirhopefoot, where Mangerton is. Migration
followed up into Northern Liddesdale. In Scotland,
the names Armstrong, Elwald (Ellot), and Nixon, may
have had there Scottish birth in the Debatable lands; the
Croyser it is felt took more of a direct route northward
bypassing the Debatable Lands.  (correction?; 1/19/2016 MSE)
Along with the Crosar/Crozier, listed as witnesses are
Grame/Grahams, and Forstar/Foster/Forester. Though
Elwald-Ellot (Elliot) of Redhuegh and Gorrenberry are
listed, along with the son of Buccleuch, Cessford (Roxburghe),
and his brother, and other Kerr, a Wm Gledstanis,
and a number of Elwald as witnesses. There are no
Armstrongs, though Grahams, Foresters, and Armstrongs
had towers along the Liddel.
The Armstrong, and their allies, believe like indigenous
Americans, that land is of the common. Previous to the
Redheugh sasine, the Armstrong Mangerton lands were
re-granted by Arhibald “Bell the Cat” Douglas V Earl of
Angus to Scot of Buccleuch. That is why the Armstrong
are not on sasine.

3.2 Hudshouse [45]
Near burn of same name, tower remains verily exist, and
a peel house at Hudshouse poscessed by this clan. Scotts
of Buccleuch, Vol II page 174.[46]
Hudhouse was a twostory house[47]
with dual doors, making it a strongly built
huddle house. What one would call a “Hudshouse”. Hudshouse
had recent farming up to about 1890, but in ruins
with slight remains of an ancient tower of the Croziers.
Philippo Crosar was recorded on the Rental Rolls of Liddesdale,
being a tenant at Hudshouse in 1541.[49][48]

Hudshouse is below foot of Helcaldenburne (Caddroun
Burn), on Liddel (refer to; Blaeu map of 1654).
Rakestonleis is of Caddroun Burn Tower (Helcaldenburne
1590) of Martin Crozier.

3.3 Treviotdale [51] [52]
The family becomes Treviodale Crosiers of Alderstonshields,
with nearby Clement Crosier in Stobsmigrating
north Clement Crosier on Gledstanis estate land to
Hummelknows just south of Hawick. [54]

3.4 Fermanagh
The relation between the Crosare (Crozier), Elwald (Ellot),
Home (Hume), in the Minto (Wolflee/Wolfhopelee)
regions is shown in a Declaration of Sasine to David
of Home 1436, when a Johannis Elwald, and a Jacobi
Crosare witness the deed of David Hume receiving
land from of Wolflee and Wolfhopelee from William

John Croser sword only is listed in the ca1630 munster
rolls of Tully Castle (1630 Tully, Monea, and Tullykelter
Castles exist, but Castle Hume was built later) the
Barony de Magherboy, Fermanangh, Ulster. Croser, Ellot
and Hume in this same region as found two centuries
earlier, in southern Treviotdale with Sasine of David


Maghereboy, Fermanagh, Ulster, Hume, Hamilton and
Somerville lands of
Tully, Monea, and Tullykelter Castle lands.
In 1659, Crozier were listed in the Census of Fermanagh/Armagh,
1528 IN DEBATABLE LANDS; Of the Armstrong, Ellot,
Nixon and Crosar; the most numerous in 1528 are
the Armstong then Elwands, Ellwoods, or Elliots who extended
into Teviotdale, Nixons which are more numerous

in Cumberland than Scotland and the Crosars in Upper
Liddesdale with their chief stronghold at Riccarton.[30]

A CENTURY LATER IN ULSTER; Across the water to
Ulster into the counties of Fermanagh which now borders
Ireland, and Armagh. Given numbers for the Armstrong,
Elliot (Ellot), Nixon, and Crozier (Crosar) of Fermanagh
and Armagh,[62]shows these two counties were stepping
stones, into the English Plantations and around the world.

Though given my writings, the activity was high, been excluded with writings deleted from writing on Wikipedia.  Even though I am an Elliott and a second generation research genealogist, utilizing Y-DNA verification, and chromosomal reasoning of a marsh dwelling elk (moose) returning to ancient homelands near Berlin, people rather believe the elk (moose) then me. Guess I must be half as smart, but twice as bull headed as that elk (moose).
