Early Origins of the Fearnside family


The surname Fearnside was first found in Lancashire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held estates in that shire.

Fearnside Spelling Variations


Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Fearnside family name include Fearnside, Fernside, Fernsid, Fearneside, Ferneside, Fearnsyde, Fernsyde, Farnside, Farsyde, Fernfold, Fernefold, Fearnfold, Fernwold and many more.
