    1776 · The Declaration to the King

    Age 79

    """At the end of the Second Continental Congress the 13 colonies came together to petition independence from King George III. With no opposing votes, the Declaration of Independence was drafted and ready for all delegates to sign on the Fourth of July 1776. While many think the Declaration was to tell the King that they were becoming independent, its true purpose was to be a formal explanation of why the Congress voted together to declare their independence from Britain. The Declaration also is home to one of the best-known sentences in the English language, stating, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."""""""

    Name Meaning

    English (Cambridgeshire): variant of Desborough, a habitational name from any of the places in Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire called Desborough. The first is named from Old English dweorge-dwostle ‘penny-royal’ + beorg ‘hill’; the second from the Old English personal name Dēor + burh ‘fortress, stronghold’. This form of the surname is now rare in Britain.
