    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: nickname: unexplained. Perhaps a variant of Cramphorn formed with Middle English crunkel(d) ‘wrinkle(d)’ rather than crampe, crumpe ‘curved, bent’. Compare Crankhorn, apparently similarly formed with crank ‘bent, crooked’: Thomas James Crankhorn, 1754 in IGI (Clerkenwell, Middx).
