The many generations and branches of the Fairthine family can all place the origins of their surname with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name reveals that an early member worked as a traveling warrior or mercenary.

The surname Fairthine was first found in Devon where this ancient Anglo Saxon name was derived from the name Faerthegn and, immediately before the Norman Conquest as Farthein. The name was recorded in the Domesday Book in 1086 as Fardan or Fardein. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Fairthine family to the New World and Oceana


To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them.

Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Fairthine family emigrate to North America: Robert and Bertha Farthing settled in Virginia in 1637; Edward Farthing settled in Barbados in 1678; George Farthing arrived in Philadelphia in 1808; Cyrus Farthing settled in Herring Neck in Newfoundland in 1871.
