: : my wife was reading book; "Seabiscuit" and stumbled across the sentence describing someone as having a "hasting's temper." Can anyone lend a hand on where this expression may have originated from....Does it have anything to do w/ the battle of Hastings??? Thanks Guy
: I haven't been able to find it in my references. Sorry.
These 3 terms apparently have been used interchangeably in the past, putting some genealogists in quite a temper. %^D
Perhaps "Hasting's Temper" is simply a more polite form of saying "hasty temper".
