Re: does many one
Surname derives from one of two English place names:
i. Fulston Manor, Kent. Early forms, Fuggleston, Fowelston, which looks like it meant bird, or fowl, farm. It might also be the farm of a man named Fugel, which is the same word, i.e., "bird", cognate with German vogel.
ii. Fulstone, Yorkshire, This probably has the same meaning, though it might mean "dirty farm".
