Francis Genealogy & History

Francis has Latin underpinnings, originating from the word "Franciscus", which described both the Germanic tribe of Franks and a personal name meaning "free man". The latter may have been used to mock the former, as the Romans, like every other civilization at the time, believed that anyone who wasn't a member of their society didn't count as a civilized person. Francis family history starts with Hugo Francus, entered in the register of Oseney Abbey, Yorkshire, in 1135. Well-known members of Francis genealogy include Windsor Mayor Eddie Francis, Missouri Governor and Interior Secretary David Francis, and Kansas City Royals pitcher Jeff Francis.
