Hi, thanks for you message. It is the Whitehall port in Cumberland. Here is where the confusion lies: There are Farishes in Broompark, Cumberland, England. The ancestry for those Farishs (which I have if you need it) goes back to the 1500's. However, I haven't found any viable proof that connects those Farishes with Robert Farish, my ancestor who immigrated to America in the 1700's. I read somethign from another genealogist who mentioned that Robert Farish could have come from Whitehall, Cumberland, England. There was a William Farish who lived in Whitehall engaged in trade with Virginia at the time Robert sailed to America. I'm trying to connect Robert Farish to the Farishes who lived in Whitehaven, but I haven't been able to access the parish records in that area. If you happen to find anything, please let me know. Who is your Farish ancestor? What line do you connect with?
