Their Generation Started It All - A Second or Middle Given Name
     As you look over the records of your loyalist ancestors and their descendants, you will notice something very striking. While it is extremely unlikely that you will find any adult loyalist with a middle name, you will find that they tended to give middle names to their children who were born after the American Revolution. The grandchildren of adult loyalists almost always have middle names. For whatever reason, the custom of giving middle names began with the generation that weathered the War of Independence as adults. It is a  "fad" that the loyalists brought to present day Canada.
    Middle names were virtually unheard of in English speaking communities before 1700. It is said that only four people in all of England had middle names in 1600 -- which is not strange considering that English  Common Law forbade them!  Edward Coke's Law Commentary has this quote:  "a man cannot have two given names of baptism; on bills of sale that  purchaser shall be named by the name of his baptism and his surname."
    Germans gave their children a saint's name or a biblical name as  their first or "Christian" name, and commonly addressed their children  by their middle names (or "call names"). ( Johan Sebastian Bach is a  classic example.) This custom began among the nobility and only later became common practice. Some historians theorize that when a German prince became the king of England, the custom of using middle names  entered English culture. Others say that it was the German and Dutch immigrants who brought the custom of middle names to North America, but this does not fit easily with the fact that loyalists embraced this custom so quickly after their arrival in British North America.
    Middle names first appeared in Massachusetts in isolated cases sometime around 1760. Except for a few very rare exceptions, middle names were not common in Virginia until the 19th century. It is interesting to note that of the 56 signatures found on the Declaration of Independence, only three had middle names. No second names were recorded in the American Federal Census of 1790.
    Given all of this background, I reviewed the names of my ancestors as well as the naming practices of other loyalist refugees. The loyalists did not use Biblical or saint's names, preferring to give their children the names of good friends, siblings or parents.  Names which loyalists were the first to use as middle names have been passed on through the generations like family heirlooms. Here are some examples.

Michael Wallace
Birth: Sep. 22, 1804
West Gore, Hants County, Nova Scotia
Death: 1875
West Gore, Hants County, Nova Scotia

Michael Wallace was a church leader with churches of Christ in Atlantic Canada.

Donald McDougall, a West Gore, Nova Scotia resident and founding publisher/editor of the "Christian Monthly Review" church of Christ magazine,published between 1919 and 1933, wrote a historical article on the work of the church of Christ in Nova Scotia. The article titled "The Cause in Nova Scotia---Past, Present and Future was published in the January 1908 "The Bible Student" magazine on page 2:

"A company of twenty six met in Hants County (pld-as a church of Christ) about 1830, under the leadership of John Doyle and Michael Wallace."

"This was the beginning of the church of Christ at West Gore, Nova Scotia."

"I remember hearing Elder Wallace say that for some years he did not know that there were in existence any other congregations occupying the same position, and that he at length heard wiht unspeakable joy of the contemporary work of Alexander and Thomas Campbell in the United States and others."

Canadian evangelist Levi Sanford, who spent over fifty years establishing churches of Christ in California, USA, wrote the following:

"In 1838 Bro. Benjamin Howard, from Michigan, and John Doyle from Upper Rawdon, Nova Scotia, preached the Apostolic Gospel and planted several churches in Nova Scotia. As I remember it Upper Rawdon and West Gore were the first set in order." (1906-The Bible Student-Sept.-pg3)

237 "Moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia, in the year 1761. They settled at LaHave for about two years, and then removed to Cumberland in the spring of 1764, and remained there about twelve years. As there was considerable difficulty in Cumberland at the time of the America war, they removed to Pictou, and continued there about four or five years; then they removed again to the Lower Village of Truro. In removing from Pictou to Truro they underwent great hardships. They had then to travel through the woods without any road, and carry their stuff and their children on their backs. This journey occupied the whole of the week, although they had the assistance of several men - the late James Kennedy was one who assisted them. While on their way there came on a snow storm, which caused them much suffering, as they had to stop in the woods five nights, and one night in particular, their fire works being damp, they could get no fire for some time, and were in great danger of perishing."

Captain Wood was a grandson of President Zachary Taylor (his mother being General Taylor's eldest daughter), and a nephew (by marriage) of President Jefferson Davis, whose first wife was General Taylor's second daughter. At the close of the war Captain Wood was on President Davis' staff with the rank of colonel, and was with him at the time of his capture. After a romantic escape from his captors, Captain Wood made his home in Halifax, N.S., where he died in 1905." (McNeill, 23)
