William Maughan 1707

William Maughan 1707

William Maughan we believe was the father of John Maughan below. William was from 'Steelrigg' or Steel Rigg, a land holding (farm) on the north side of Hadrian's Wall 3 miles northeast of Haltwhistle. He was born circa 1707. According to the Dictionarium Anglo-Britannicum by John Kersey (1708) steel refers to the body of an arrow and a rig is (a) a horse that has had a stone cut but was able to sire a colt, (b) ramping, or (c) a wanton girl. One could presume that the meaning then is a ramp against Hadrian's Wall from which to shoot arrows...
Durning this period in the history of Northumberland, England and Scotland were joined by the Acts of Union in 1707 (technically two acts: Union with Scotland Act of 1706 and the Union with England Act of 1707). This meant that the Kingdom of England and the Kingdom of Scotland - which at the time were separate states with separate legislatures, but with the same monarch - were, in the words of the Treaty, 'united into one Kingdom by the name of Great Britain'. the Scottish Parliament and the English Parliament united to form the Parliament of Great Britain, based in the Palace of Westminster in London, the home of the English Parliament.
The appearance of John Maughan and his children in parish registers in Edinburgh, Scotalnd suggests a migration north of some 75 miles as the crow flies somewhere between 1735 and 1760.
