1827 · Slavery Becomes Illegal in New York State

Age 28

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:1. from Middle English parrock ‘paddock’, ‘small enclosure’, hence a topographic name for a dweller by a paddock or enclosed meadow, or a habitational name from a place named with this word, as for example Paddock Wood in Kent. The change of -rr- to -dd- is an unexplained development which did not occur before the 17th century. 2. from Middle English paddock ‘toad’, ‘frog’, a diminutive of pad (of Old Norse origin), hence a nickname for someone considered to resemble a toad or frog.
