1850 · Compromise of 1850

The United States Congress passed a package of five separate bills in an attempt to decrease tensions between the slave states and free states. The compromise itself was received gratefully, but both sides disapproved of certain components contained in the laws. Texas was impacted in several ways; mainly, the state surrendered its claim to New Mexico (and other claims north of 36°30′) but retained the Texas Panhandle. The federal government also took over the public debt for Texas.

Name Meaning

English, German, Dutch, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, French, and Jewish (Ashkenazic): habitational name from Holland, a province of the Netherlands.

English: habitational name from Downholland or Upholland (Lancashire), Hulland (Derbyshire), the Parts of Holland, one of the three administrative subdivisions of Lincolnshire, any of the four places called Hoyland (southern Yorkshire), and possibly Great and Little Holland (Essex). The placenames all derive from Old English hōh ‘heel, spur of land’ + land ‘land’.

English: habitational name either from Hoeland (Farm) in Bury (Sussex), or from Holland's Barn in Albourne (Sussex). The placename in Bury has the same etymology as in 1 above, while the placename in Albourne may derive from Old English hol ‘hole, hollow’ + land ‘land’.
