My 3rd great grandmother was an Ann Farndell born abt 1781 in Chichester, Sussex. Possibility she is daughter of John Farndell/Mary Barrow...but have not been able to prove connection. Ann married Abraham Hunt...possibly in 1802 in Portsea, Hampshire. He was a China merchant and they had a family of 8 children that I know of. Most of children born in London area. Any information about early Farndells or Hunts appreciated.

It sounds as if you are much further back than I, so not certain how I could help. My 4th great grandmother was an Ann Farndell, born about 1781 in Chichester, Sussex...according to census records. She married Abraham Hunt, a glass and china merchant on 1st of Feb 1802. Their children were born in Appledram, Sussex, South Stoke, Oxford, and London. The only documented proof I have of the Farndell connection is at the death of Ann's son Zebulon in 1838 at age 23 yrs. Informant was a "Mary Ann Farndell, cousin." Feel free to contact me at holingbery@aol.com if you have any other questions.

the only thing I've found is Alice and Albert Farndell in Portsmouth (my father's home town) in the 1901 census. I don't know if they are any relation to us or any other info about them other than he was a stoker which ties in with my father's father working in the port possibly in the Navy also. Don't know if this is any use to you.

Hi

I too am curious about that address. Did you know that in those days farndell was apparently a word use for a piece of land granted to people. It's about a quarter of an acre I think. The Farndale spelling to the best of my knowledge is the Yorkshire origin and my father has always believed our Farndells (originally from Sussex) was supposed to be "of Arundel" which is plausible but I've found no evidence since they seem to have come from much further west.

Hello
I'm interested in your Passiful connections - I am descended from a Mary Ann Passiful born 1791 Quebec, Canada - British Subject. What she was doing in Canada I have no idea - she was back in the UK by 1810,
Regards

i am trying to trace the parents of my grandfather GEORGE JAMES FARNDALE, NEE FARNDELL. DOB 02 FEB 1892 PORTFIELD SUSSEX,his mother was MARTHA FARNDELL,DOB 1864 STATED FATHER NOT KNOWN.
She went on to marry JOSEPH BRIDGER DOB 1866 who became his stepfather and he was listed as GEORGE FARNDELL in the 1901 census then GEORGE BRIDGER in the 1911 census. BUT he then was in WW1 as GEORGE JAMES FARNDALE and married in 1919 as GEORGE JAMES FARNDALE and stated his father as JOSEPH BRIDGER. ? I need help on this mystery. NATIONAL RECORDS cannot trace GEORGE JAMES FARNDALE OR GEORGE JAMES FARNDELL
