Faa also known under the surnames of Faw and Fall, were
Scottish Romany Gypsies who were forcefully transported to the Virginia plantations in 1715 as convicts.

In the Book, Scottish Gypsies

They clearly speaks of the Faa / Faw / Fall Gypsy family all through out the book, some of which were transported to Virginia, and likely transported to South Carolina as well.
They are one of Scotland's most well known of the Gypsy families, and are a family of great interest to me.

If your Faw, Fall, Faa family traces back to Colonial Virginia or South Carolina, I would be most interested in talking to you about your family tree possibly being of Romany Gypsy ancestry.
