Mount Family Genealogy

Admin -- Ramona Creel Mount Family CrestI was delivered from down off the Mount (just like a pair of stone-flipping-tablets, though far less biblical in nature) on my father’s maternal side. Now the fine folks who track such things tell me that my ancestral peeps could have acquired this lofty rubric from either our Scottish or English forebears. Regardless of origin, I love that I come from a land filled with beautiful countrysides, homey pubs, kick-ass TV, and impenetrable accents — too bad they’re paired with unpalatable food and  crappy weather in both cases!

The Mount name first appeared in Peebleshire, where my posse held a family seat. I’m not sure why they traded inherited power for wal-marts and all-you-can-eat buffets by crossing the pond — but I hope they’ll welcome me back home come expatriation time. (Especially once they discover my fondness for beans-on-toast, Monty Python, whiskey, and canned vegetarian haggis.)

Our motto “pruder et constanter” means “pride and constant,” the strangest combination of a noun and an adjective the western world has ever seen. I could get on board with “constant pride,” or possibly “proud constancy” — but even if you treat both parts as nouns, it’s still weird. (Especially when you consider that this slogan was originally a war cry.) You’d think that, linguistically clever as we are, my clan could’ve come up with something a bit more threatening — and a tad less illiterate. Must be some bizarre mathematical analogy, designed to confuse and confound our enemies. Yeah. I’m sure that’s it.

These people’s greatest physiological gift was my fiery crimson hair. (Only 2% of the world’s population is redheaded — that makes us the genetic equivalent of unicorns. And yes, we do poop rainbow ice cream.)

Everything about the ginger experience is superior. Our urine was thought poisonous, and our blood believed capable of converting copper into gold. We were burned as witches and staked as vampires in the old country. (Which you have to admit is sexy as hell.) We claim the most sardonic writer (Mark Twain). The hottest cartoon character (Jessica Rabbit). The most committed martyrs (Joan d’Arc and Galileo). The most tortured artists (a tie between VanGogh and Sylvia Plath). The most musically-inspirational would-be-assassin (Squeaky Fromme). The best disney princess. The coolest wizards. The funniest comedians. We have Pippi Longstocking, Judas Iscariot, and Chuck NORRIS, for fuck’s sake! No contest — we win.

The Mounts I know aren’t especially horse people (and I’m unaware of any strange hereditary sexual predilections that would have led to such nomenclature). So yes, before you state the obvious — this branch of my family is most likely named after a a gigantic clump of dirt. What can I say. You take the low road, we’ll take the high road, and we’ll get to Scotland way-the-freak afore ye. Personally, I like the idea that each of our settlers throughout the Fife and Lanarkshire regions chose at least a moderate precipice — even though I’m wiggy about super-tall heights, I’m partial to an RV spot with a view. A knoll apiece!
