    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from Farrington in Lancashire, but perhaps occasionally from Farrington Gurney in Somerset. Both are named from Old English fearn ‘fern’ + tūn ‘settlement’. The surname also probably reached America via Ireland, where it is recorded as early as the 14th century.
