    Heron Family Crest
    English and French (Héron): nickname for a tall, thin person resembling a heron, Middle English heiroun, heyron (Old French hairon, of Germanic origin). English: habitational name from Harome in North Yorkshire, named with Old English harum, dative plural of hær ‘rock’, ‘stone’. This surname has evidently become confused with 1. Irish: reduced form of O’Heron, an Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó hUidhrín ‘descendant of Uidhrín’, a personal name from a diminutive of odhar ‘dun’, ‘swarthy’. Irish: reduced Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó hEaráin (see Haren). Irish: reduced Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Giolla Chiaráin ‘son of the servant of (Saint) Ciarán’ (see Kieran).

      From: Luqman Whittinger [mailto:Whittinger at btopenworld. com] Sent: September 22, 2002 5:21 PM To: Sandi Sullivan Subject: Re: Pithers or Whitings Hi again, I do not know the age of your Charles H. Pither but, there is a Charles Heron Pither in the 1881 Hampshire Census. He is aged 4 {i. e. born Abt. 1877} and recorded in Alverstoke in Hants. His Father James Robert Pither born in Agra, India. The Father is 40 years old head of household an army School N? no recorded birth place. There are other children born in Ceylon and India. The alternative is a School masters son of similar age, also living in Alverstoke in Hants. You would have to check in the Mormon Census Records. There are also two further Charles H. Pither(s) in Berkshire one 8 years from Clewer, Windsor, Father George Pither aged 42 a Bricklayer, born in Hartley Row, Hampshire, And a one month old Charles H. Pither from Winkfield, Berks; Father Alfred Pither aged 26 {Labourer] born in Sunninghill, Berks. I hope its of use to you. Yours L. Whittinger

      Hi, Sandi, yes, he was born in India. In fact, he's was a twin (Allan Fraser Pither) and he and 5 of his siblings were born in India, another in Ceylon (Sri Lanka), the others were born in Scotland, Ireland and England. His Father was an English Army School master. I came across an interesting article about the Duke of York Military School. I suspect Charles' Father was with Corps of Army Schoolmasters (CAS) which became the Army Education Corps (AEC) and was later renamed the Royal Army Education Corps (RAEC). I am great grand daughter of Charles' brother, Thomas and live outside of Chicago, IL. trishp121353(at)comcast. net Trish P
