A Long Journey

Updated October 28, 2005

I have tried to be accurate in my research,apologies if their are any errors please contact me if you find any. also please contact if you can add to my "Long Journey"
I have recieved information on the "FATHERS" surname.
Many thanks to Dianne(Fathers)FAREK.
She has researched our heraldry and found that our surname is actually from the surname FEATHERSTONE or FETHERSTONE.
Our forefathers descended from Schleswig-Holstein in Germany. Our surname is derived from an Ancient Saxon Chief who settled on the Tyne of Northumberland during the 8th century and built Featherstone Castle.
