    During the years 1799 to 1827, New York went through a period of gradual emancipation. A Gradual Emancipation Law was passed in 1799 which freed slave children born after July 4, 1799. However, they were indentured until 25 years old for women and 28 years old for men. A law passed 1817 which freed slaves born before 1799, yet delayed their emancipation for ten years. All remaining slaves were freed in New York State on July 4, 1827.

    Name Meaning

    English: nickname from a medieval game called hurlebatte, which took its name from ‘short battes of a cubit long and a halfe, with pykes of yron, and were tied to a line, that when they were throwne, one might plucke them again’ (1565–73). Compare ‘Pleying at The two hande swerd, at swerd and bokelere, and at two pyked staf, at The hurlebatte’ (about 1450 in MED).
