    Name Meaning

    English (Lancashire): from one or more lost or unidentified places, probably in Lancashire, named with Middle English fair(e) ‘beautiful’ + clo(u)gh ‘narrow valley, ravine’ (see Clough ). Fairclough Farm in Chipping, Lancashire is a candidate for the surname's origin, although early forms of the placename are lacking. A number of the earliest bearers came from Shevington, Lancashire, where the narrow valley of the River Douglas may perhaps have have been known in the medieval period as Fairclough.
