It also reaffirmed the location of the westward frontier border (near the Rocky Mountains) as well as the border between Lake Superior and Lake of the Woods. The treaty was signed by Daniel Webster (United States Secretary of State) and Alexander Baring (British Diplomat, 1st Baron Ashburton).

Name Meaning

Alternatively, from Middle English carde ‘playing card’ (Old French carte), also ‘kind of fabric’ (medieval Latin carda), which could have been a nickname given to a card player or a metonymic occupational name for maker and seller of the fabric.Irish: shortened form of McCard .French: from a shortened form of the personal name Ricardon, a pet form of Richard .
