    1848 · Slavery is Abolished

    In 1840, the American Anti-Slavery Society split and slavery started being outlawed in the state. In Canterbury, Connecticut, Prudence Crandall started a school for young African American girls. The people got mad and Crandall was taken to court. The case was lost and that was the beginning of many other cases that would be lost, but it was also the start of having slavery abolished.

    Name Meaning

    Cornish: from the personal name Edy (pronounced ‘eedy’), a variant of Udy , from the Middle English personal name Ude, Udy, Latinized as Udo and Odo. It may represent Old French Eude (ancient Germanic Eudo, of uncertain etymology), whose usual Latin form is Eudo. This agrees with later evidence that the original pronunciation of the initial vowel of Udy was /y:/ (as in French tu), though in the 16th century it was sometimes unrounded to /i:/, spelled -e(e)-. It was later altered to Eddy.

    English: variant of Eady .

    English: perhaps from a shortened form of the Middle English personal name Edwy (Old English Ēadwīg, from ēad ‘prosperity, fortune’ + wīg ‘war’), which has not survived in that form as a surname.
