FREED Family HistoryThis ancient surname found in the spellings of Firth, Frith, Fridd, Fryd, Freeth, Fright, Freed, Vreede, Frift, Freak, Feake, Freke, Firk, and many other forms is of pre 7th century Olde English, Scottish and Welsh origins. It derived as a surname from a description for a 'dweller by scrubland or barren pasture' from the words 'firhthe' or 'fyrhthe'. The rule of thumb is that for example 'Firth' has its epi-centre in Yorkshire - Lancashire, whilst the transposed spelling as 'Frith', is frequently recorded in the south ast of England.
