    1821 · Financial Relief for Public Land
    Age 1
    A United States law to provide financial relief for the purchasers of Public Lands. It permitted the earlier buyers, that couldn't pay completely for the land, to return the land back to the government. This granted them a credit towards the debt they had on land. Congress, also, extended credit to buyer for eight more years. Still while being in economic panic and the shortage of currency made by citizens, the government hoped that with the time extension, the economy would improve.

    Name Meaning

    English and Scottish: from the Middle English and Older Scots personal name Jak, Jakke, Jagge, Jake, Jeke, Jegge, a Picard-Flemish denasalized form of Old Picard and Middle Dutch Janke, a pet form of Jan (see John ). It was introduced by Flemings and Picards into Norman and Anglo-Norman usage, whence it became a common English and Scottish pet form of John. Although the surname is mainly Scottish in distribution, it also occurs in England, though the more common form there is Jackson .English: occasionally perhaps from a Middle English borrowing of the Old French personal name Jacque(s) (James). However, it is uncertain whether English Jack was ever used as an alternative to James.Native American (e.g. Navajo): adoption of the English personal name Jack (see 1 above) as a surname.
