Origin of Fowle, Meaning of Fowle

Origin: This name is of ancient Anglo-Norman origin, and comes from the Anglo-Saxon word 'Fugal', meaning fowl. However, most of the Fowlers in America are of English descent. It seems that the early bearers of our name not only 'pursued the captured wild fowl', but also sold them , for in its early form the French suffix,'ere', following 'fowl', meant an agent or dealer. Old English and early American records carry frequent mention of the name in various forms, such as 'Fouler', but'Fowler' is the generally accepted form. - 'The House Of Fowler: A History of the Fowler Families of the South' by Grover Parsons Fowler(1940).
