What is a Maverick?

Did you know the term ‘maverick’ comes from Samuel Maverick?

He was a Texas lawyer, politician, land baron and signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence. In 1867 he went against the norm and refused to brand his cattle. His fellow ranchers began to call unbranded cattle mavericks. 

Another word for unbranded cattle? Slick.
