Ferhan History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Ferhan family
The surname Ferhan was first found in Midlothian, where they held a family seat on the English/Scottish border. The name was first recorded in Scotland in Fairholm now called Farme. The old lands of Farme are now included in the town of Rutherglen.
Ancient records of the family are scarce, so we must look to 17th century records that include: Jemet Fairum who was married in Edinburgh in 1604, Marion Fairholm who appears in Overtoun of Quodquen, 1621, and three more of the name are in record in Lanark.
John Fairholm, (died 1646) was merchant burgess of Edinburgh and a few years later, John Ferholme was merchant burgess there in 1655. We must presume that the latter was presumably son of the former. George Fairholme was a tanner at the West Port of Edinburgh in 1653. Fairholm of Craigiehall was an old family in West Lothian.
