Baseborn and Fowlingpiece

So I was out and about where I shouldn’t have been and it struck me that there was more to these Lawyers’ names than met the eye.

A Fowling Piece being a gun used to hunt fowl with and Base Born describing an illegitimate child.

Not really sure what to make of this and if there is any greater meaning. Just one of those things that pops into ones head when they are skulking in dark corners.

“Baseborn and Fowlingpiece, we’ll shoot all your bastards”

The question being, are there slang or lesser-known meanings for either of those?

The only connection I’ve ever thought up for them is “bastard” + “shotgun” = “wedding”. So maybe they do pre-nups. Or divorces. Yes, I’m reaching.
