    Name Meaning

    English: occupational name from Middle English fermo(u)r, fermer and Anglo-Norman French fermer (Old French fermier, medieval Latin firmarius). The term denoted in the first instance a tax farmer, one who undertook the collection of taxes, revenues, and imposts, paying a fixed (Latin firmus) sum for the proceeds, and only secondarily someone who rented land for the purpose of cultivation; it was not applied to an owner of cultivated land before the 17th century.

    Irish: Anglicized (part translated) form of Gaelic Mac an Scolóige ‘son of the husbandman’, a rare surname of northern and western Ireland.

    Americanized form (translation into English) of French Terrien ‘owner of a farmland’ or of its altered form Therrien . Compare Pharmer .
