Origins of surname
The name is of French origin, and was introduced to England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. It is derived from the French fer = 'iron' and was given to a blacksmith. Fearon has the same derivation but is treated as a separate family in Jerripedia.
The surname appears in Jersey church records as early as 1687, but there is then a gap of 50 years before a family became established in the 1730s. Although we believe that the family whose tree is shown below came to Jersey from France, the surname appears to be more numerous in Belgium. We have been unable to trace the family's origins.
