There are many stories of hopscotch being invented by the Chinese or Romans with the latter using extended hopscotch (up to 100 squares) for training soldiers in full battle dress, but all that is known definitively is that the first recorded reference to hopscotch dates back to 1677 when it was also known as ‘Scotch-hoppers’.
The sport of Hop-Scotch or Scotch-Hoppers was also called ‘Hop-Score’ in Yorkshire, ‘Scotch Hobbies’ or ‘Hobby’, in Suffolk and in North Britain it was known as ‘Peevers, Peeverels’, and ‘Pabats’.
