Origin: The Scales family dates back from the landing of William the Conqueror in 1066.The origin of the name came from the commander of that division of King William's army, which came to England with him from Normandy, whose duty it wasto scale walls of a besieged city when the proper time came to make such an assault. The general's name was Hugh; they had only one name then; in the history of time he is called Hugh de Schalers ; that is Hugh commander of of city walls and fortifications ; in the course of years the spelling became Hugh de Scales and after two or three centuries the de was dropped. I found this in Genealogical and Family History in the State of New Hampshire.

Origin: I have found two possible origins. The first (and most likely) has the first recorded name belonging to Fortun Ortiz Calderon. He was still-born and placed in a caldron until his cries alerted his parents that he was alive. A second, more obscure addition, has it belonging to descendants of Vela de Aragon, son of King Sancho Ramirez of Aragon.

Origin: A Scottish researcher named Bill Caddell claims the surname is an ancient Highlander name from a Norman knight Hugo de Cadella. The name was 'gaelicized' into the name Calder meaning 'water between the woods'. The lowland pronunciation was 'Cawdor' and an ancestral castle was given this title. (The castle still stands). Mr. Caddell claims that all the names originate from this bloodline.

Origin: The Wexford Scallans in South Africa I am researching the origins of the Scallan family in South Africa. James (born in 1795), believed to be a plasterer and his brother Patrick, a tailor emigrated to South Africa. Their parents were Patrick Scallan (born around 1770) and Mary of Wexford, Ireland. I would very much like to know if anything is known about the origins of the family in Wexford.

Origin: The name Vogt is derived from the Hegnishian word for cow which is "voghft". The Hegnishian people were a tribe that lived in the mountains of Germany. There are two reasons why the name Vogt is derived from the hegnishian "cow". One is that most of the Vogt family in the Hegnishan Tribe were obese and dubbed "cows" by their piers for not practicing the proper german food etiquite... another is that they were very high into the cattle raising industry and were said to raise the best meat in eastern europe. They lived there between about 1400 and 1672. They were castrated out of the mountains when the invading French army threatened their cattle production and some of the Vogt members were captured as French prisoners. The Vogt's that were left, which was the majority of them, headed down the mountain with the other Hegnishians and tried to raise their cattle there, all attempts prevailed.
