Fauxals History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The origins of the Fauxals name come from when the Anglo-Saxon tribes ruled over Britain. The name Fauxals was originally derived from a family having lived in the parish of Foxhale in the county of Suffolk just miles from Ipswich.

Early Origins of the Fauxals family


The surname Fauxals was first found in Suffolk at Foxhall, (Foxhale) which dates back to at least the Domesday Book where it was listed as Foxehola and was about 15 acres in size located in the Hundred of Carlford. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

By the late 1800s, the population had increased to about 200 inhabitants and was about 2,000 acres in size. Foxholes, a parish located in the East Riding of Yorkshire was listed as Foxele, Foxhole and Foxohole in the Domesday Book having derived from the Old English term "fox-hol" and literally meant "the fox holes, the fox's earth" [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Fauxals family to the New World and Oceana


A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: John Faxel settled in Texas in 1846; Ann and William Foxall settled in New York in 1842; Thomas Foxhale settled in Pennsylvania in 1813.
