Origin of firk

  • From Middle English firken, ferken (“to proceed, hasten”), from Old English fercian (“to bring, assist, support, carry, conduct, convey, proceed”); perhaps akin to Old English faran (“to fare, go”), English fare; if so, equivalent to fare +‎ -k. Cognate with Old High German fuora (“benefit, sustenance, support”), Swabian fergen, ferken (“to bring, dispatch”).
