This Act was to restrict the power of the President removing certain office holders without approval of the Senate. It denies the President the power to remove any executive officer who had been appointed by the president with the advice and consent of the Senate, unless the Senate approved the removal during the next full session of Congress. The Amendment was later repealed.

Name Meaning

German: variant of Stock .

English (Yorkshire): variant of Stock with plural or post-medieval excrescent -s. In the plural form, the surname may also be topographic, for someone who lived near tree stumps, or habitational, from a place so named, such as Stocks in Thurstonland (Yorkshire). It may also denote someone who lived by, or operated, the obsolete instrument of punishment known as the stocks (Middle English stokkes) owing to its construction from two wooden planks set edgewise one over the other.
