FOLAN Family HistoryThis interesting surname, with variant spellings, Follin, Follan, Folan, Fallo(o)n, Fullen, Fullo(o)n, etc., has two distinct possible origins. Firstly, it may have originated as an occupational name from the old French "fulun", a fuller or dresser of cloth. The work of the fuller was to scour and thicken the raw cloth by beating and trampling it in water, and the surname from this source was first recorded in the early 13th Century, (see below). One, William le Fulun was noted in the 1223 "Calendar of the Patent Rolls", Yorkshire.
