Further mention of Totnes and Brutus


Totnes - the castle - By Troxx (Picture was taken by myself) [GFDL (www.gnu.org/copyleft/fdl.html), CC-BY-SA-3.0 (www.creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/) or CC-BY-2.5 (www.creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.5)], via Wikimedia Commons

"Etymology of Totnes.—Can any of your readers suggest a probable etymology for Totnes, the "prime town of Great Britain," as it is called by Westcote*, who supposes it to have been built by Brutus, 1108 years before the Christian aera. Mr. Polwhele, who supposed the numerous Hams in Devon to have owed their names to the worship of Jupiter Hammon, would, I imagine, have derived Totnes from the Egyptian god Thoth or Taut ; or, perhaps, directly from King Thothmes. Westcote observes that some would have the name from, —

"The French word tout-a-l'aise, which is in English, all at ease; as if Brutus at his arrival in such a pleasant soil should here assure himself and his fellow travellers of ease, rest, and content ; and the /, in this long time, is changed into n, and so from tout-d-hsse we now call it tont-a-nesse, and briefly Totnesse. This would I willingly applaud, could I think or believe that Brutus spake so good French, or that the French tongue was then spoken at all. Therefore, I shall with the more ease join in opinion with those who would have it named Dodonesse, which signifieth [in what language?] the rocky-town, or town on stones, which is also agreeable with the opinion of Leland." 

Totnes is denominated Totenais and Totheneis in Domesday Book ; and in other old records variously spelt, Toteneis, Totteneys, Toteneys, Totton', Totteii, Totenesse, Tottenesse, Tottonnsse, Totonie, &c. Never, Donodesse. J. M. B. Totnes, April 23. 1850."

NOTES AND QUERIES. [No. 29. 18 may 1850]

[I included this because of the complete surety given to the myth of Brutus, who was said to have founded Britain from Troy, having landed in Totnes]

  1. You may or may not listen to internet radio, but you can admit that internet radio sounds pretty creative itself,
    right. You can even get a listing of all local stations in your
    area as well. One of the very best reasons to include internet radio as part of your online marketing plan is because
    of the search engine optimization opportunities.

  5. It iis based on computer with electrographic sensor technology.

    Age Level - A good factor to write about is the appropriate age level for the video game that you
    are reviewing. If you want to be able to hit the ball further and harder, you should keep in mind to keep your grip on the bat loose, your swing
    should begin with your legs and hips, and finally, you must always
    follow your bat through.

  6. Once the game is 80% complete you will need to work on the sound. If you don’t have much skill in programming, but still think that creating and developing games is the most suitable for you, there are special courses that will give you training in graphic designing, game development, and computer animation. As ever we strive to help our customers make informed decisions and understand where their r4 cards are coming from.

    pitching so brilliantly in such a high pressure situation, Larsen's feat is even more impressive when one considers that the Dodgers had four future Hall of Famers in their lineup: Duke Snider, Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella and Pee Wee Reese.

  22. The new EP Pure Wet is a masterclass in experimental baselines and echoey, breathy vocals all underpinned by varying funk and R&B-based rhythms.
    Compassion also arises out of a sense of vulnerability and shared humanity'the realization that we are all connected to everyone and everything at all times, that we are not isolated or separate.

  24. The fishfinder approximates where the fish are by measuring the amount of time
    between when the beam was sent out and when it registered the hit.
    Pay close attention to the mayflies, midges, and stoneflies in the area and try to match
    your flies to the size and type fish are biting on.
    When the water arrives at the inlet, most oxygen is dissolved because of the abrupt transformation of water movement.
