Hate to be a wet blanket, But. This retailer is typical of those that started out in about the mid 90's when genealogy got to be a hot item. Most of these "Heraldic" coats of arms and histories are a mass product of generalized terms and non-specific historical facts dealing with almost any name. When they printed out the document, the requested name was inserted, making it look as though it was details of that specific name. In reality if you looked at other documents from that dealer, the information would have been similar regardless of the surname attached.

Now to anwer the question, Freddie Gardner and some of the others have given the facts. The name originiated in the Hesse, Germany,area and means Freeman and was orginally spelled Freymann.
