STRINGFELLOW Family HistoryThis very unusual surname is of medieval English origin, and has two distinct possible origins. Firstly, it may be an occupational name for a bow-stringer or maker of bow-strings, derived from the Middle English "string", string, with "felaw", fellow, the latter element deriving ultimately from the Olde English pre 7th Century "feolaga", partner, shareholder. In Middle English the term was used in the general sense of companion or comrade, and the surname thus probably denoted a (fellow) member of a trade guild, in this case, bow-stringers.
