I am trying to find some information on my Ferneyhough ancestors.I have a gggggrandfather named Edward Ferneyhough who married in the late 1700's.I am assuming that he and perhaps the rest of his family immigrated to Virginia in the 1760's or there abouts. I believe that he had a sister named Anne. Unfortunately, I have not uncovered any additional information on this line.
The Ferneyhough surname is extremely uncommon here in the states.I have noticed that most of the "traffic" on this Genforum involves people from England or Australia.If anyone knows of any emigration records that would indicate that Ferneyhoughs came to Virginia in this time frame, I would appreciate hearing from you.
By the way, how does one correctly pronounce the name????
