1827 · Slavery Becomes Illegal in New York State

During the years 1799 to 1827, New York went through a period of gradual emancipation. A Gradual Emancipation Law was passed in 1799 which freed slave children born after July 4, 1799. However, they were indentured until 25 years old for women and 28 years old for men. A law passed 1817 which freed slaves born before 1799, yet delayed their emancipation for ten years. All remaining slaves were freed in New York State on July 4, 1827.

Name Meaning

English: from the Middle English personal name Askell with prosthetic H-, from Old Norse Áskell, a shortened form of Ásketill (see Axtell ). The personal name was also popular among the Normans, sometimes in the form Anskell (with ancient Germanic Ans- substituted for As-), which explains why the name occurs in post-Conquest England in counties not settled by Vikings. Its appearance as a surname is often disguised by altered pronunciations; metathesis of /sk/ to /ks/, spelled -x-, for example, has given rise to Axtell . The Normans frequently used the name in Frankish forms; see Askin , Haskin , Hasty , and Astin . For the name in the Isle of Man see Castell .

Jewish (Ashkenazic): from the personal name Khaskl, a Yiddish form of the Hebrew name Yeḥezqel (see Ezekiel ).
