============================================
(- "Good Morning, Mr. Fetherstone?", by Eula Thomas Perkinson, Lark Song
Lane, Rt. 1, Riceville, TN 37370, p. 183). (source: Albert E. Meyers
database, aem@@ezonline.com, http://www.ezonline.com/aem/aem.html)

*Her father an <unknown> Fetherstonhaugh was said to have been the Clan Chief
who was born of Stanhope Hall, Durham, England. "Chief of the Fetherston
Clan" - resided at Stanhope Hall, Durham.

The suffix "haugh" means the alluvial plain of a river valley, i.e. the
location of Featherstone Castle on the Tyne River about 3-1/2 miles SW of the
village of Haltwhistle in Northumberland. The village name is a combination
of the French "haut" and the Scandinavian "wiscle" meaning a high crest of
water, perhaps referring to the sharp bend in the river about this town. The
town church dates to the 13th century.

Burke's "The General Armory," p. 348 gives the family as Fetherstone, alias
Perkinson, and states that all branches show descent from the ancient family
of Fetherstonehaugh of Northumberland, which derives in direct male line from
a chief of those Saxons who landed in England early in the 8th century and
settled on the Tyne River. Helias de Fetherstonehaugh granted land at
Fetherstonehaugh to the prior and convent of Hexham in 1215.

This is all I have on this particular branch of the family. I hope it is
helpful to you....sorry it took me so long to respond, but my career requires
me to travel 48 weeks out of the year, which doesn't leave me a lot of spare
time.
