Surname Variations: Fargason, Fargison, ffargason, Forrgason, Vargason, Vargison, Vergason

I stumbled across a link to a Very Interesting Website today.  We know the phonetic translation of surnames was terribly corrupted in the 1650s but I think this one takes the cake.  The author makes a compelling case for Ferguson = Vargason.

I am in contact with the website’s author and will update this page as John Ferguson’s data develops.
