    During the years 1799 to 1827, New York went through a period of gradual emancipation. A Gradual Emancipation Law was passed in 1799 which freed slave children born after July 4, 1799. However, they were indentured until 25 years old for women and 28 years old for men. A law passed 1817 which freed slaves born before 1799, yet delayed their emancipation for ten years. All remaining slaves were freed in New York State on July 4, 1827.

    Name Meaning

    (1997: 489;2007: 904; 2010: 1466)Dutch (of West Frisian origin): apparently an altered form of Funda, which may well be a reinterpretation, due to similarity to Latin fundus ‘depth’, of Foyngha, the name of an estate managed by the ancestors of the first and only bearer of this surname in the Netherlands, who later established its variant in America. There is no evidence for the supposed Spanish origin of this surname.Italian (Trieste) and Slovenian: nickname from Italian fonda, an old variant of fionda ‘sling, catapult’, or from an Italian homonym meaning ‘bag’. This form of the surname was first recorded in 1230 in Slovene Littoral.
