Ferrand History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English , French , Italian


The Ferrand surname comes from the Old French word "ferrand," meaning "iron gray," and is thought to have originally been a nickname, for someone with gray hair or for someone who dressed in gray. Some instances of the surname may have evolved from the Latin personal name Ferrandus.


Early Origins of the Ferrand family


The surname Ferrand was first found in Florence (Italian: Firenze), originally the capital of Tuscany, then capital of the kingdom of Italy. On the River Arno there are numerous Florentine Churches, Museums, Galleries. It dates back to 313 A.D. The history is complex and turbulent. The de' Medici family are the notables. They were expelled in 1494 but they returned in 1512, out in 1527 and then returned. In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, landowners were entered into the records. To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry. The Ferranti family emerged as a notable when Ottenero was Governor of Florence in 1362. They became known as the Ferranti family of Ferrantini.
