1781 · The First Constitution

Serving the newly created United States of America as the first constitution, the Articles of Confederation were an agreement among the 13 original states preserving the independence and sovereignty of the states. But with a limited central government, the Constitutional Convention came together to replace the Articles of Confederation with a more established Constitution and central government on where the states can be represented and voice their concerns and comments to build up the nation.

Name Meaning

English: habitational name principally from Saxton (Yorkshire), but perhaps occasionally from the lost Saxton preserved in Saxon Street in Woodditton (Cambridgeshire). The Yorkshire placename probably derives from the Old Norse personal name Saxi (see Sax 3) + Old English tūn ‘farmstead, estate’, though the first element may alternatively be Old English Seaxe ‘the Saxons’ (in the stem-form Seax-) or perhaps Old English seax ‘stone, rock’. The Cambridgeshire placename probably derives from Old English Seaxe (in the stem-form Seax-) + tūn.
