After his death, Congress passed legislation to officially make the Secret Service and gave them responsibility for protecting the President at all times.

    Name Meaning

    Scottish, English, and Irish (Antrim): habitational name from Ramsey (Huntingdonshire, now part of Cambridgeshire), from Old English hramsa ‘wild garlic’ + ēg ‘island, low-lying land’. Alternatively, the name may also arise from Ramsey (Essex), probably from the same etymology as the Huntingdonshire placename. However, this is unlikely to be the source of the Scottish surname. This form of the surname is also common in Ireland, where it is probably in most if not all cases an altered form of Scottish Ramsay .
