Fellers is actually German. Centuries ago they used to call animal skins fells, so a Feller was a fur trader and often traveled. So there are Fellers found England, France, Switzerland, and Germany. It is a name closely related to Fuller, who were the men who would stretch and sew together the animal skins.
