FAWCETT Family History

This interesting name is Anglo-Saxon in origin and is a locational name which can derive from the place called "Fawcett" in Cumberland or from "Facit" in Lancashire. "Fawcett" is recorded in 1247 as "Faxide", and in 1282 as "Fausyde", while "Facit" is first recorded in the Records of Whalley Abbey, Lancashire circa 1250 as "Fagheside". Both places share the same meaning and derivation, which is the "multi-coloured hillside", derived from the Olde English pre 7th Century "fag", "Fah", brightly coloured, variegated, flowery with "side", slope.
