This Act was to restrict the power of the President removing certain office holders without approval of the Senate. It denies the President the power to remove any executive officer who had been appointed by the president with the advice and consent of the Senate, unless the Senate approved the removal during the next full session of Congress.

Name Meaning

English: from the Middle English personal name Elwald, Elwold, Alwold (Old English Ælfweald, ælf ‘elf’ + weald ‘rule’). The surname is now rare in Scotland, but was once quite common in the Scottish borders where it was altered to Elliott and Ellett . The different surnames may have co-existed and become confused with one other.
