Origins of surname

This is a family name from the north of Brittany, the exact derivation of which appears to have experts on French names beaten. The name has an ending which is probably unique among French names. The only suggestion we have been able to find it that it may come from the old French farain, ferain (= wild beast). It is an old family name, because there are records in FInistere, in the west of Brittany, from the 14th century.

Early records

The name first appears in St Lawrence birth records in the 1890s. Eugene Francois Mathurin Francois Faramus is shown in the 1911 census as having been born in St Peter, but his birth was registered in St Lawrence, along with that of his sister Elize Jeanne Marie Francoise. Eugene married Ada Laura Chevalier and they had seven children.
