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.

The surname Fardon 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]
