The H-Horseman's story + The legend of the Horseman begins in Sleepy Hollow, New York... The Horseman was a Hessian of unknown rank, one of many hired to suppress the American Revolution. During the war, the Hessian was one of 51 Hessians killed in a battle for Chatterton Hill, wherein his head was severed by an American cannonball. He was buried in a graveyard outside a church.. Thereafter he appears as a ghost, who presents to nightly travelers an actual danger (rather than the largely harmless fright produced by the majority of ghosts), presumably of decapitation.

German Legends of the Brothers Grimm (Deutsche Sagen) recount 2 German folk tales of a headless horseman being spotted with their own eyes..One is set near Dresden in eastern Germany. In this tale, a woman from Dresden goes out early one Sunday morning to gather acorns in a forest.. At a place called "Lost Waters", she hears a hunting horn.. When she hears it again, she turns around she sees a headless man in a long grey coat sitting on a grey horse..In another German tale, set in Braunschweig, a headless horseman called "the wild huntsman" blows a horn which warns hunters not to ride the next day, because they will meet with an accident..In some German versions of the headless horseman, he seeks out the perpetrators of capital crimes. In others, he has a pack of black hounds with tongues of fire..Dresden has a long history as the capital and royal residence for the Electors and Kings of Saxony, who for centuries furnished the city with cultural and artistic splendour. The city was known as the Jewel Box, because of its baroque and Rococo city center -
The Company of Wolves + The Kiss...

Hession (pronounced "hesh + in") is an old Connacht Irish surname. It is an Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó'hOisin. In Gaelic, it is pronounced "O + hush + een"..The name may be related with similar names Hishon in County Limerick and Hassan in County Londonderry.. It appears to originate in Co. Galway and in County Mayo. The Hession surname is predominantly found in these counties in the Census of Ireland, 1911. It means to descendant of Oisín a personal name meaning "little deer", and the name of the poet and warrior of the fianna in Irish mythology...Hishon is the anglicised form of Ó hOiseáin and finds an early reference amongst the Allies of the MacNamara family in Co Clare in the early 1300s..By this reckoning, it is the 12th largest city in England outside London. For Eurostat purposes, Wolverhampton is a NUTS 3 region (code UKG39). People from Wolverhampton are known as "Wulfrunians"...Alternatively, the city may have earned its original name from Wulfereēantūn = "Wulfhere's high or principal enclosure or farm" after the Mercian King, who tradition tells us established an abbey in 659, though no evidence of anabbey has been found
