Any stories where the Forman's came from. English, Anglo-Saxon, Germanic tribes, etc? Did they come to England before the Norman Conquest?

My Formans/Furmans came from Mohilev-Podilsky, Ukraine, and Bessarabia, Moldova/Romania in the early 1900s. They were Jewish immigrants that settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Interesting, were they always in that region? Do you know anything about them before the 1900s? If you have reached a paper trail roadblock do you have any male Formans that could have their dna tested?
