FAIRBROTHER Family HistoryThis interesting name is a surname incorporating a term of relationship. It is a variant on the name Fairbrother and is of Anglo-Saxon origin deriving from the old pre 7th Century English 'foeger', meaning fair or lovely and 'brothor', brother. The pattern of this surname was reflected in Norman usage and introduced by them into England after 1066, in such forms as 'Beaufrere', with the same meaning. One, William Beaufrere is mentioned in 'Parliamentary Writs' in or about 1300. The surname Farbrother in one of its forms was clearly established by the early 16th Century (see below).
