Origin: Parsley, according to my research is either a place name(saxon: Parr's leah, or Parr's grove), or a variant on Pashley, Paisley, Paslow, or Presley. The English name seems to be from northern England and southern Scotland, however, its also rumored to be Irish. There is also a group of Parsleys from Norway, but I have no knowledge if the two are connected. In the United States, Parsley is most often found in the southeast, around Tennessee, Virginia and Arkansas. The earliest American reference I found to the name was a death certificate from Virginia dated c.1720

Origin: This name is a Scottish name drived from two Scottish words, weard and laugh. (law) Weard means 'watch' and Laugh means 'hill'. (We have been called 'Weardlow' many times over the years. A Watch hill was used much as Paul Revere used Old North church. A lookout tower, only it was a hill, many of which are found in Scotland. Wardlaw and Wardlow are very well known in Scottish history and we believe the variance to be an aural misconception and the hearer just wrote down what they thought they heard. You may have been named Wardlaw just because your family lived very near one of these hills.

Origin: From the research I have accumulated the name Mellor may have originated from a Celtic word, Moel or the Latin, Mollis, which means a smooth, rounded hill. In England there are two villages named Mellor, one near Blackburn, the other south of Manchester. I have also been told that the name may have originated from a man or family named Mel who lived on a mountain or hill i.e., 'Lor'. This may not be correct, but we believe the name is Norman-French, and was transported to the British Isles at the time of William the Conquerer around 1066 A.D. Would love to talk with others who may have more to substantiate these descriptions.

Origin: Hickenloopers first came to America from Mittleschlechtbach, Germany in October 1754. The ship 'Peggy' on which Andreas Heckenleib arrived in this country sailed from Rotterdam, Holland, thus many think the name is Dutch. I have been told the name means 'hedge-hopper/thief.' I understand there are still Heckenliables in Germany today. Some Heckenliables ventured through eastern Europe and Russia first, before coming to America. When they arrived they called themselves Heckenlively.

Origin: Information that we have traces the origin of the Cloer name, with this particular spelling, to a minor French noble house in the middle ages. The name means 'nail wright' or 'maker of nails' and apparently this was the profession of the original family prior to the period of 'nobility'. (We have no information as to how the family rose to this position.) This spelling should not be confused with Clore, which is an entirely different family and is Scottish in origin having been spelled McClore before being 'Americanized.' Our information suggests that the Cloers came to this country during the French revolution to escape religious persecution.

Origin: Lunt, 1396, the definite article was prefixed down to the xvii cent Lunt is situated in the flattest fen district drained by the River Alt, which also forms its north-eastern boundary. The marshy pastures are liable to floods during winter and in wet seasons. In the southern portion there are cultivated fields where cereals and root-crops thrive in a soil consisting of a mixture of sand and clay. Hedges are scanty and trees few and far between. The geological formation is the same as in Sefton. It was formley a hamlet of Sefton, but its separation seems to have been accomplished before 1624. It has an area of 477 acres, and the population in 1901 was 80. The road from Sefton to Ince Blundell passes through it. St. Helen's well close to Sefton church, is a wishing well; a pin had to be thrown in, and if it could be seen at the bottom of the well the omen was favourable. The township is governed by a parish council. Manorially Lunt seems to have been a member of Sefton, but land in it is on one occasion said to have been held of the lord of Warrington, suggesting a territorial connexion with the adjioning township of Thornton. Richard de Molyneux, some time before 1212, gave to Richard Branch and to Robert half a plough-land to be held byKerry James Lunt

Origin: My mother was a Loftis. She is from Alabama/Mississippi. My great grandparents are from Ireland. There is a story about the difference between Loftis and Loftus. There were two brothers who got in a huge fight to the point that they no longer wanted to be associated. As a gesture of disgust, one changed the spelling of their name so that they would no longer being associated. A good friend of mine in high school was a Loftus. We both went to our relatives and asked if they knew why they were spelt differently. And amazingly enough, we both came back with the same story. Both of us having relatives who came over on the boat from Ireland. Hope this helps.
