Origins of surname
This is an occupational surname for a worker in iron, a blacksmith, and comes from the old French ferron and ultimately from the Latin ferro='iron'.
The present-day family traces its origins only as far back as the 1830s, but in various spellings the name has been known in Jersey since the 13th century. The 19th century emigrants came from Ireland.
