FEARON Family HistoryThis unusual and interesting name is of Old French origin, introduced into England by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066. It is an occupational surname for a worker in iron, a blacksmith, and derives from the Old French term "ferron, feron", ironmonger, smith, from the Latin "ferro", a derivative of "ferrum", iron.
