Notes


Subj: Re: [POLK-L] Polk History Date: 7/27/99 02:48:56 PM Mountain Daylight Time From: SALLY228@aol.com To: POLK-L@rootsweb.com


I have taken this from the book The Mecklenberg Declaration of Independence, May 20, 1775, and Lives of its Signers by George W. Graham, MD. This book belonged to my great grandfather George Washington Polk (1847-1924), and the book was published in 1905.


The following sketches of the delegates to the convention at Charlotte are copied almost verbatim form Draper's manuscript work upon the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence, preserved in the Thwait Library at Madison, Wisconsin:


Gen. Thomas Polk


The original name of the ancestors of the Polks of Mecklenburg was Muirhead, whence it was changed to Pulloak, then to Pollock-which by obvious transition, assumed its present-as is evident by the will of Magdalene Polk, dated 1723, preserved among the records of the Orphans' Court of Somerset County, Maryland.


The traditions of the Greeks and Romans were not more quaint and curious as to the origin of their heroes than are those of many of the Scotch-Irish Presbyterians who early migrated to the New World. The Polks have had handed down to them a tradition running in this wise:


On a certain great occasion, away back in the misty past, a king of Scotland was marching at the head of an immense procession, when a small oak shrub appeared directly in fromt of His Majesty, to which one of the king's attendants, by the name of Muirhead, a man of great physical strength, sprang forward, and with a Herculean effort, tore it up by the roots and bore it out of the way. Such an act of gallantry propted the king to order a halt, when he knighted Muirhead upon the spot, and changed his name to Pulloak- pull-oak. Another tradition is related of the same person. An enormous size and vicious wild boar inhabited that region, a terror to all who came within his range. A reward was offered by the king to any one who would rid the country of the dreaded monster. Pulloak determined to try it single-handed. Armed only with a bow and arrows, he sallied forth on the dangerous adventure. One version of the story is that when the wild boar discovered his pursuer he rushed toward the bold hunter, who climbed an oak tree, and from its branches he shot the fierce animal. Another version of the story is that, pursued by the enraged boar, Pulloak sprang through an old church window, the boar after him; but Pulloak instantly darted out of the door and shut it quickly, and managed to close the window, and then quietly returned home. His neighbors were not a little surprised at his safe return. In response to their expressions of astonishment, he affected equal surprise, saying with nonchalance, truly a bitof a pig had the hardihood to run at him, when he seized it by the tail and threw it into the church window, where they might go and satisfy themselves of the fact. At length some of the more courageous of the number sallied forth to see the game of the forester, and were astonished beyond measure when they discovered the "bit of a pig" was none other than the dreaded wild boar for whose taking off the king had offered the large reward. Some of those present argued that Pulloak was more than a Sampson, and must have been imbued with supernatural aid. And as an additional evidence of his fearlessness, he boldly advanced, and shot the enraged animal through one of the windows.


The hero of the exploit, as the tradition goes, kept his own counsel and it was many a long year before he saw fit to divulge the manner of his getting so dangerous a beast into the church alone and sigle handed. The coat of arms of the Polk family is no doubt derived from the latter tradition-"Polloak, Bar't. Scotch; a boar, passant, pierced by an arrow." Motto: Audacter et strenne- Boldly and readily. The boar is represented with elevated bristles and angered mien, transfixed with an arrow.To aid in ameliorating the natural turbulence of the Irish character, James I encouraged a large emigration into Ireland, and among those who settled in that part of Ulster known as Donnegal, was the family of Pollocks. Robert, a son of the elder Pollock, took an active part in the wars against Charles I and fought side by side with Cromwell against the Royalists, under Rupert. The powder-horn worn by Robert Pollock during the civil wars is now in possession of Col. W. H. Pollock.


The book goes on, but I must stop.
