The Faircloth Family History: A Compilation of Resources and Genealogy Records - Joyce Christin Judah. The Faircloth family name originated in England with roots known as far back as the 1300s. From Lancashire, Lincolnshire, Hertfordshire and London, England to Virginia and North Carolina, the Faircloth family has spread throughout the United States, especially the southeastern part of the states with a concentration in Sampson and Cumberland Counties, North Carolina. From the Mayor of Liverpool, Thomas Fayerclough, in 1554, to the journey to America with William Faircloth, settling in Virginia in 1699, the roots of two distinct lines of Faircloth's are traced in this comprehensive genealogy and compilation of historical Faircloth documents. Immigration lists, targeted census records, military records, deeds, last will and testaments, court actions, cemeteries, and war records to include the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, Indian Wars and the Civil War, tell a tale of courage, determination, heartache and family. Two primary lines of Faircloth's are traced through this work. The descendents of William Faircloth I, through his heirs, Hardwick, John Robert and Zechariah, and Arthur begin in England with his birth about 1640. William died in Virginia. The line of Edward Farecloth is traced to the early 1700s and extends through Benjamin Franklin Faircloth Senior, Thomas Faircloth and John Faircloth. Immigrations, war and death on the battlefield, survival, successes, courage, despair, and achievements-the Faircloth family felt them all. This book follows two major lines describing the good, the sad and the adventures of leaving a legacy. Pedigree charts help to organize over one thousand individuals described throughout this work. 2007, 8½x11, paper, index, 352 pp.
