Fellows Family HistoryThis name derives from the Medieval English "felagh" or "felaw" itself coming from the late Olde English "feolaga" meaning a partner or shareholder. The ultimate origin of the name is the Olde Norse "felagi", a partner or companion. The surname is first recorded in the 12th Century, (see below). One, Walter Felagh appears in the 1256 "Assize Court Rolls of Northumberland" and a Robert le Felagh in the 1327 Subsidy Rolls of Sussex. The patronymic forms of the name are Fellows and Fellowes. The final "s" added to the name is a reduced form of "son of (Fellow)".
