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

English: from a vernacular form of the Late Latin personal name Dominicus ‘of the Lord’. This was borne by a Spanish saint ( 1170–1221 ) who founded the Dominican order of friars. In medieval England it may have been used as a personal name for a child born on a Sunday. As an English surname it is comparatively rare, and in the U.S. it has undoubtedly absorbed cognates in other European languages; for the forms, see Hanks and Hodges 1988 .
