The name Fairbrodder comes from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It was a name for a person who was referred to as the fair brother. The surname was originally derived from the relationship between two brothers and referred to the brother of a fair person or the better-looking of a pair of brothers. The surname Fairbrodder comes from an ancient Anglo-Saxon word faerbeorht which described a brother-in-law to a famous knight or nobleman. In Scotland, "father-brother" is a phrase to designate an uncle. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Fairbrodder family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Fairbrodder were among those contributors: Susannah Farebrother, who arrived in Boston in 1635; Nath. Fairbrother, who settled in Virginia in 1638; Betsey Fairbrother, who settled in Baltimore in 1830.
