Ferebroder is a name whose history is entwined with the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It was a name for a person who was referred to as the fair brother. The surname was originally derived from the relationship between two brothers and referred to the brother of a fair person or the better-looking of a pair of brothers. The surname Ferebroder comes from an ancient Anglo-Saxon word faerbeorht which described a brother-in-law to a famous knight or nobleman. In Scotland, "father-brother" is a phrase to designate an uncle. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Ferebroder family emigrate to North America: Susannah Farebrother, who arrived in Boston in 1635; Nath. Fairbrother, who settled in Virginia in 1638; Betsey Fairbrother, who settled in Baltimore in 1830.
