The saga of the name Fardon follows a line reaching back through history to the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It was a name for someone who worked as a traveling warrior or mercenary. Occupational names that were derived from the common trades of the medieval era transcended European cultural and linguistic boundaries.
