Yes, and I'm new at this, but from what I've gleaned, the 1797 painting or illustration shows the same thing (at least) on an English river, i.e., 14 years earlier. The painting is not titled with the name hockey but the Pictou reference to ice hurley doesn't use the term hockey either. So it seems a "wash" except the English practice was older, no?
