The ancient Anglo-Saxon culture once found in Britain is the soil from which the many generations of the Feyerbrother family have grown. The name Feyerbrother was given to a member of the family who was 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 Feyerbrother 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]

Feyerbrother 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 Feyerbrother family name include Fairbrother, Farbrother, Farebrother, Fairbrodder, Farbrodder and many more.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Feyerbrother surname or a spelling variation of the name include : Susannah Farebrother, who arrived in Boston in 1635; Nath. Fairbrother, who settled in Virginia in 1638; Betsey Fairbrother, who settled in Baltimore in 1830.
