I grew up in Surrey, UK and have always pronounced it short "O".

I now live in Canada and it is always pronounced "Fathergill" except by the Brits that I know. I have trained my wife and kids to say the short "O".

Tony, as a hotelier I hope you have read John Rowland Fothergill's series of books on his Inns. Specifically, An Innkeepers Diary, Confessions of an Innkeeper,
My Three Inns.

I have read the first but am still looking for the latter two.
