Samuel Augustus Maverick (1803-1870) was one of the leaders in the fight for Texan independence and like his famous contemporary, James Bowie, he is mostly remembered today through giving his name to a word in the English language. 

Maverick was the owner of a large cattle ranch, but he neglected to brand his cattle, which led to many of them being stolen.  From this the word maverick came into being to describe stray animal or anyone with one particular attachment to a place or a group of people.  And to maverick is to acquire something illegally.
