Note: Hvorfor familien tok navnet Von Fyren: En natt omkring 1680 kom en rik kjøpmann Henrik Petersen, (kalt Ystad, Ystadnavnet antyder en eller annen forbindelse med Sverige), med sitt skip fullastet med kostbare varer fra Lübeck. Han kom ut i storm og skipet strandet på Jærens rev, båt, last og hele mannskapet forsvant. Den eneste overlevende var Henrik Petersen Ystad som kjempet med bølgene og ga Gud det løftet at hvis han overlevde skulle han bygge et fyrtårn. Han overlevde og bygde et fyrtårn på Kvitsøy. Han betalte i mange år for denne byggingen og i takknemlighet for dette adlet kong Christian VI ham og ga ham adelsnavnet Von Fyren. (Fyr-tårn), med rett for etterkommerne å bruke adelsnavnet. Generasjonene på 1800-tallet droppet ofte von Fyren og brukte Petersen som slektsnavn
