Where and when did hockey originate?

If you're talking about Ice Hockey.. Most believe that the game of ice hockey evolved from stick-and-ball games, played outdoors, and adapted to the icy conditions of Canada in the 19th century. The games of British soldiers and immigrants to Canada, influenced by stick-and-ballgames of First Nations, evolved to become a game played on ice skates, often played with a puck, and played with sticks made by the Mi'kmaq of Nova Scotia. The name of hockey itself has no clear origin, though the first known mention of the word 'hockey' in English dates to 1799 in England.

Hockeys original name?

As far as I can determine , the game played on ice has always been referred to as "hockey".

The game itself probably combined elements of European games such as hurling, shinty and field hockey plus the North American native game of lacrosse.
