Fawchney Early Origins



The surname Fawchney was first found in Switzerland, where the name came from the province of Vaud from a distinguished line which gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates and branches, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society.
