Early Origins of the Fowns family


The surname Fowns was first found in Berwickshire on the eastern part of English/Scottish Border. However, some of the family were found at Alderwasley in Derbyshire in ancient times. "The Le Foune or Fawne family held lands here in the reign of Henry III., and their heiress intermarried with the Lowes, who obtained a grant of the manor from Henry VIII." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
