    1821 · Financial Relief for Public Land

    Age 17

    A United States law to provide financial relief for the purchasers of Public Lands. It permitted the earlier buyers, that couldn't pay completely for the land, to return the land back to the government. This granted them a credit towards the debt they had on land. Congress, also, extended credit to buyer for eight more years. Still while being in economic panic and the shortage of currency made by citizens, the government hoped that with the time extension, the economy would improve.

    Name Meaning

    German and Swiss German (also Stöcker): topographic name for someone living by a tree stump (see Stock 3) or an occupational name for a tree cutter, from Middle High German stocken ‘to clear land’.

    German and Swiss German (also Stöcker); Dutch: occupational name from Middle High German, Middle Dutch stocker ‘jailer’.

    English: occupational name from Middle English stokker ‘one who sells stockfish’ (fish dried in the air without salt). This was the usual source of the name in medieval London, where a bylaw of 1419 stated that no stokker should board a ship to buy fish (presumably in order to forestall the market).
