About the Houston surname

susan houston


Balázs Déri :

Hosuton in the States was allegedly named after a man called Houston,whose ancestors
might have originate from the town of Houston in Scotland ,that in turn was named for a local
landlord ,Hugo ,as Hugh's Town .
The place had been called,as they say ,Kil-Peter .

Still,it is possibly that such a name had already been in use in Scotland / Alba and among the
Native Americans ,when these towns were named ,and the emerge of a family member of the local
clan ,and of a soldier of that name ,were used as pretext only to revive the authentic names .
This idea is supported by the use of Housatonic as a name of a river and of a tribe among the Delaware ,
of Algwank language .
Such might have been the case with the Delaware themselves ,who might be of origin from Dane-Lawe ,
or the other way around .

Algonquines in general are descended from A'as-Sharra ,called Easru in Ireland,son of Sru ,
as Sarra was the alternaitve name of Tyros ,where Tyrrhénians might have come from,and they were
called Toscan too,as were Albanians related to them in the Balkan called Tosks .
Aghwank ( Alguank ) is the Armenian name for Albans .
Scot in Alba can also be explaained from Tosk ( Ta-Wawa-Sak ) ,as Sak-Wawa-Ta - they are believed to
be named after Scota ,called Skauda in Scandinavia .
Sacota tribe in the Andes might have also got her name .

Housatonic themselves might be named for Onkhéstos ( On-Nek-Ha-ya-Wassat ) ,son of either Posedáón
or of Boiót ,from the family of Poseidáón ,called also Neptun ,who might thus have been a Nawatl,as
Neptun may well be identical with A-Na-Pat-Tel-A-Wa ,brother of A'as-Sharra .
Levites of these two neighboured tribe of the Choesn Nation on the Holy land of America were speaking
Armenian and Albanian dialects respectively ,and such might have the ones forced into exile to Europe
also been doing .
This would mean ,that Housatonic tribe was at least of part Nawatl origin ,and an original Houston either in
America or in Europe could be a Nawatl settlement .
Unami ( Una-Mi ) tribe ,the kins of Housatonic may be descended from a Mynés ( Mi-Una )

The fours sons of Anapattelawa ,as A-Gaya-Nawa ,Awas-Ter-Ra ,Shala-ya-Ma and Awak-Hes-Te-Wa-'ale
may be the partial ancestors of the four Scythic tribes from Troia - likely identical with Teotihuacan - ,
the Gépaida or Norman ,the Ostro-Goth,the Hypo-Goth and Wand .
Scytha is the same as Scott or Scut .
