    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. The Amendment was later repealed.

    Name Meaning

    English: from the Middle English female personal name Pernel, Parnell (Old French Peronel(le)) from Latin Petronilla, a feminine pet form of the Latin personal name Petronius. Petronilla was the name of a supposed early Christian saint and martyr. This surname was also brought to Ireland from Cheshire in the 17th century, by a family who had been supporters of Cromwell's Parliamentarians during the English Civil War. Charles Stewart Parnell, who founded the Irish Parliamentary Party in 1882, was a descendant of this family. See also Pennell .
