AD 1490?-1698

Van Ferney (also Van Ferneij)

For younger generations of ancestors who are descended from this family:
see page on Van Solingen

The name "Van Ferney" indicates that the founding father came from a place called Ferney. In Holland there is no such place, but there is one in France, near the Swiss border. It is famous because Voltaire used to live there, and the town is now even called Ferney-Voltaire officially. Our ancestors could well have had their origins in this French town. "Geerbrant" does not sound French, but Franchois/Franchoys/François does very much, a name which remained popular in this family for more than a century and also kept its French spelling.
All genealogical information on the Van Ferney family was taken from the homepage of Ruud de Bruijn, with his permission.
