    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 The Amendment was later repealed.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 (Lancashire and Yorkshire): habitational name chiefly from High Ryley in Accrington (Lancashire) and Riley in Kirkburton, which was in the manor of Wakefield (Yorkshire). In some cases the name may derive from Riley Farm in Eyam (Derbyshire), Royley in Royton (Lancashire), or Rylah in Scarcliffe (Derbyshire). The placenames all come from Old English rȳge ‘rye’ + lēah ‘woodland clearing’.

    Irish: from Ó Raghailligh ‘descendant of Raghailleach’, Old Irish Roghallach. This is the name of a chieftain family in Cavan, related to the O'Rourkes. In Anglicized form it has also been confused with Ó Raithile found in Munster, usually Anglicized as O'Rahilly or Rahilly . See O'Reilly .
