The surname of FERREBEE was a locational name 'of Ferriby' parishes in County Yorkshire, and Lincoln. Local names usually denoted where a man held his land and indicated where he actually lived.Early records of the name mention FURBERE (without surname) who was documented in County Yorkshire in the year 1185. Adam de Ferrabee, 1400, County Yorkshire. John Winstanley and Elizabeth Furby were married at St. George's, Hanover Square, London in the year 1763. The name has many variant spellings which include FOURBOUR, FERRIBY, FERRABEE and FERBY. Habitation names were originally acquired by the original bearer of the name, who, having lived by, at or near a place, would then take that name as a form of identification for himself and his family. When people lived close to the soil as they did in the Middle Ages, they were acutely conscious of every local variation in landscape and countryside. Every field or plot of land was identified in normal conversation by a descriptive term. If a man lived on or near a hill or mountain, or by a river or stream, forests and trees, he might receive the word as a family name. Almost every town, city or village early times, has served to name many families. Most of the European surnames in countries such as England, Scotland and France were formed in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. The process had started somewhat earlier and had continued in some places into the 19th century, but the norm is that in the tenth and eleventh centuries people did not have surnames, whereas by the fifteenth century most of the population had acquired a second name. The name was in Scotland early and Adam le Furbeur witnessed a grant of land circa. 1280-90. Richard le Forblour was the burgess of Roxburgh in 1296. Between 1327 and 1329 there are several payments to Stephen dictus Furbour, and in 1342 he rendered to the Exchequer the accounts of the provost of Dundee. In 1329 there is an entry of payment of X6.13s.4d to William Fourbour in aid of his marriage.
