Sorry --- my last message was erroneously posted under my husband's name instead of mine!Here it is again:
I have been reading with interest information on the family surname FEIRN. My maiden name is Feirn. My father is George Edwin Feirn and he and his ancestors have lived in Lincolnshire for generations. He is now almost 88 years old! I know of several generations back from him if anyone would be interested. I emigrated to North Texas in 1970. My married name is Gillian Margaret Salling. I have often wondered if there were any Feirns in the USA and have thought they must be related as this is an unusual spelling of the name.
