Age 9

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 The Amendment was later repealed.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

English (Durham and Northumberland): of uncertain origin. Reaney suggests that it may be a habitational name from Wincheap Street in Canterbury (Kent), but this origin is not supported by the present-day distribution of the surname, which is heavily concentrated in northeastern England.
