VARNAM Family History

This interesting and unusual name is of Medieval English origin and is locational from places so called in Berkshire, Dorset, Essex, Suffolk, Surrey, Yorkshire and Northumberland. All the places except Northumberland derive from the Old English "fearn", fern and "hamm", a low lying meadow, thus a meadow where ferns grew. The earliest recordings of these place names are as follows; Ferneham (Domesday Book of 1086 Berkshire) Phernham (Domesday Book, Essex) Farnham (Domesday Book, Suffolk) Fearnhamme (The Anglo Saxon Chronicle 894, Surrey) Farneham (Domesday Book, Yorkshire).
