the following is taken from the website:
www.featherstone-society.com
this site is all-encompassing, truly a monumental labor.
"It has already been said that the family has been subdivided into several branches. It has also been seen that the eldest branch was that of Fetherstonhaugh of Fetherstonhaugh in Northumberland and that from them the Fetherstonhalghs of Stanhope in Durham are derived. The next ancient branch that is recorded, after that of Stanhope is the house of Fetherstonhalgh alias Perkinson of Beaumont Hill and Whessoe in the same county of Durham. From these derive next in antiquity the Lancashire branch of the Perkinsons: and probably also the Yorkshire Parkinsons from whom soon after a branch was established in Bedfordshire mentioned in the Visitation of that county in 1634."
