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: nickname from Middle English drake, either ‘drake, male duck’ (compare Duck ) or ‘dragon’ (Old English draca ‘snake, dragon’ or the cognate Old Norse draki), including an emblematic dragon on a flag (compare Dragon ). Both the Old English and the Old Norse forms are from Latin draco ‘snake, monster’; its sense as a nickname is unclear but it may have had the sense ‘standard bearer’. The name was taken to Ireland in the 13th century and reinforced by later English settlers in the 17th century.

German: from Low German drake ‘dragon’, familiar as image on signboards, hence a topographic or habitational name referring to a house or inn with such signboard.

Dutch: variant, mostly Americanized and Flemish, of Draak, a cognate of 2 above, from draak (Middle Dutch drake) ‘dragon’.
