This rare and interesting name is of medieval origin and is a patronymic (meaning "son of") form of the personal name "Fawke" or "Falco" which derives from the Old French "Faugue" or "Faucon" (Old German "Falco") and usually means "falcon". The personal name was introduced into England by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066, and has generated a wide variety of modern surnames, ranging from "Fawke(s)", "Fawais", "Faux", "Falck" and "Falco" to "Faulkes", "Faulks", "Fake(s)", "Fawks", "Fawson", "Fuzzens". The placename "Vauxhall" in London comes from one "Falkes de Breaute" who was lord of the manor there in the early 13th Century. Amongst the sample recordings in London is the marriage of Rosanna Fuzzens and Henry Edward Smith on July 19th 1852 at St. Leonards, Shoreditch. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Agnis Fosson, which was dated May 28th 1586 St. Botolph, without Aldergate, London, during the reign of Queen Elizabeth 1, "Good Queen Bess", 1558 - 1603. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.
