PHAIR Family History

This interesting and unusual name is English. It was originally a personal name of pre 7th century and derives from the Old German word "Faeger" meaning fair. It was equally popular in its different spellings in England, Norway, Denmark and Sweden and was also taken up with enthusiasm by the Norman invaders of England in 1066. The variant spellings include Faire, Fayre, Faers, Fayer, Fyers, Phair, Phare and Phayre. The early recordings include Robert Faier, in the Suffolk Court Rolls of 1191, Henry le Vayre in the Duchy of Cornwall Accounts for 1297, Dorothy Fayre (1573, Stepney), Elizabeth Faire (1616, London) and Abraham Fair (1799, London)...
