1776 · The Declaration to the King

Age 30

"""At the end of the Second Continental Congress the 13 colonies came together to petition independence from King George III. With no opposing votes, the Declaration of Independence was drafted and ready for all delegates to sign on the Fourth of July 1776. While many think the Declaration was to tell the King that they were becoming independent, its true purpose was to be a formal explanation of why the Congress voted together to declare their independence from Britain. The Declaration also is home to one of the best-known sentences in the English language, stating, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."""""""

Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of the various places with this name, as for example in Cheshire, Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Northamptonshire, Suffolk, and North Yorkshire. For the most part these were named in Old English as ‘Mū-la's settlement’, from the Old English personal name or byname Mūla ‘mule’ + tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’, but in some cases they may have been originally farms where mules were reared or kept. In the case of the Norfolk place name the first element was probably a personal name Mōda, a short form of the various compound names with a first element mōd ‘spirit’, ‘mind’, ‘courage’.
