    1821 · Financial Relief for Public Land
    Age 17
    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 (London): of Norman origin, a habitational name from Saint-Maur-des-Fossés (Seine), and possibly also from Saint-Maur-des-Bois (Manche) and Saint-Maur-sur-Loire (Touraine), named from the dedication of their churches to Saint Maur (see Moore 3). The family of this name who have held the title Duke of Somerset since 1547 are said by some to have originated in Saint-Maur-des-Fossés (Seine), while others claim they are from Saint-Maur-sur-Loire (Touraine). They rose to prominence under the Tudors, when Edward Seymour (died 1552) held a high position of office under Henry VIII, who was married to Edward's sister, Jane. The Norman name has been established in Ireland since at least the 17th century.
