Ancestors of Tim Farr and The Descendants of Stephen Farr


William ALDOUS [Parents] was born on 23 Jun 1667 in Earl Soham, Suffolk, England, United Kingdom. He was christened on 23 Jun 1667 in Earl Soham, Suffolk, England, United Kingdom. He was buried on 7 Feb 1733/1734 in Fressingfield, Suffolk, England, United Kingdom. William married Mary PULLFORD on 31 Mar 1725 in Fressingfield, Suffolk, England, United Kingdom.

From records in the posession of Tim Farr.

 William Aldous, though he was born (1667) at Earl Soham, Suffolk, England, remembered very little of living there, since his family moved the few miles to Fressingfield, his father's original home, when he was just a little boy.  He grew up in Fressingfield, and mar- ried there in 1700, his bride being Elizabeth Wright.  In addition to pursuing his occupation as a blacksmith he acquired some farm land. Most land was under the jurisdiction of a manor.  A manor was an area owned and administered by a person called the lord of the manor.  A given manor could be all or part of a parish or parishes.  The lord of the manor used part of the property, and the remainder was held by tenants, who had rights to pass their portion to heirs, etc.  A given tenant often held acreage in more than one manor.  Also, the manors and villages had commons, or pastures, which tenants and occupants shared.

 William and Elizabeth became the parents of eight children, one of whom, Anne, died in infancy; another, Robert, died at the age of twenty.  We have an interesting situation regarding the christenings of their children: three of them, Samuel in 1705, John in 1710, and Martha in 1712, are called, in the parish registers, the children of Steven Aldous blacksmith; but they are named in William's will, along with his and Elizabeth's other children who lived: Elizabeth, William, and Richard; and no Steven Aldous blacksmith can be found to be father of the three. Later the same people are named in son John's will. Also, son Samuel bequeathed the land, part of it by name, that his father William had willed to him.  We can conjecture that William per- haps looked like his father, Stephen Aldous, and on those three occa- sions the parish minister inadvertently wrote down the wrong name.

 Elizabeth died in 1724, and the next year William married Mary Pullford.  By her he had another son, Jonathan, who is also named in the wills mentioned previously.  This son was only four and a half years old when William made his "Last will and testamentt" in Decem- ber of 1732.

 His will is of interest, one of the reasons being the unusual spelling in it.  For instance, the year is written "one thousnd seaven hundred and thirti too." William called himself "saner [sen- ior]," and gave his lands in Fressingfield "houlen [holden] of the manor of Wittingham Com Waklin" to his son "Sameual," "with the Com- nage [commonage] with the privlig and Aparncs [appurtenances] thare unto blongin with the paster [pasture] in the Broyd Rod and the mean profets thareunto Blong and part of my goods and chatels." Samuel  was to pay "unto Mary Aldous my Loving wife the sume of seaven pownds  a yeare and yearly during the tearm of her naturall Life quartly [quarterly].to be paid." Samuel was also to receive "one beed [bed] in the palor [parlor] with the fertr [furniture] and the houshould Lineng [linen]" and "after my dessace to pay the Leagys [legacies] folling [following] . . . to Willm Aldous my son twenty pownds . . . Elizabeth Aldous my dafter twenty pownds . . . twenty pounds to Rich- ard Aldous my son . . . to Mather [Martha] Aldous my Daftr twenty pownds . . . Johnathn Aldous my youner son twenty pownds for indeca- tion [education] and twenty pownds to be paid when he come of age, and twenty pownds John Aldous my son." He signed his will, but the signature is not the same handwriting as the body of the document,  so someone else wrote it down, and thus we cannot attribute the in- teresting spelling to William.  We have another sample of William's signature, as a witness to the will of his brother Francis in 1730. William died in February of 1734, over a year after making his will.

  It was thirty-one years later (1765) when son John wrote a will (probated 1767).  He had married late in life and had no children.  He gave his "well beloved wife Mary" some personal items and also the interest of two hundred pounds to be paid to her quarterly; after her death the whole was to be divided amongst his "brothers and sisters." He bequeathed five pounds each to the children of his sister Martha Clebond, to his "brother in law" (here meaning half brother) Jonathan Aldous, to John son of Richard Aldous (his brother), and to his sis- ter Elizabeth Andrews.  Of interest, too, is: "to my kinsman Francis Aldous of Fressingfield, Blacksmith, forty pounds if he be industri- ous and mind his business within six months after my Decease But if he should not be so tractable as he might but waste his stock, then the forty pounds shall be paid yearly at five pounds a year." He appoint- ed Henry Clutton senior of Fressingfield as executor, but Clutton re- nounced, and "Samuel Aldous of Fressingfield, Blacksmith, natural and lawful Brother of John Aldous testator" was appointed.

Mary PULLFORD. Mary married William ALDOUS on 31 Mar 1725 in Fressingfield, Suffolk, England, United Kingdom.

LEVI SNOW (and Lucina & family)compiled by Donna Hansen Woodwardand submitted by Michael JefferiesLevi Snow was born July 22, 1782 in Chesterfield, New Hampshire.  He was born to Captain Zerubbabel Snow who was born August 12, 1741 in Rutland, Massachusetts, and Mary Trowbridge who was born February 25, 1745 in Worcester, Massachusetts.Levi was the eighth child of Zerubbabel and Mary Trowbridge Snow.  Their were ten children in the family.  Levi had six sisters and three brothers.Levi's parents lived on the boundary line of the two states.  The Connecticut river became the dividing line between the two new states in the Union Levi's parents lived in Chesterfield, New Hampshire all of his growing up years.Levi met Lucina Streeter, his future wife, through Jemina Streeter, an aunt of Lucina.  When introducing Lucina to Levi's mother, Jemina said, "Mary, this is a daughter of my husband's brother, William Streeter.  I told her about the many books you buy for your son Levi and nothing would do but she must come to see what you have that she hasn't read."  "Levi was known as the boy who would rather read than dance."  Lucina stayed with her aunt Jemina so that she could attend the Academy in Chesterfield one winter so that she could have extra lessons in French.  It was during this time that Levi and Lucina became real friends because of their love for reading.After accompanying Lucina home to Cumberland, Rhode Island on a months visit, Levi said to Lucina, "Oh, Lucina dearest, we grow so slowly, that years drag wearily by.  You know that I love you without my speaking the words, that you are as much a part of me and I of you as if made from the same clay.  So you are young and I am young, but we both know how to work, and God will help us.  Would you dare marry me now and not wait any longer?"Levi married Lucina Streeter on November 29, 1801 in Chesterfield, New Hampshire.  They lived in Levi's mother's home until after their first child was born, where Levi helped his brothers in the sawmill and grist mill.  After Levi and Lucina had their first child, they moved first to Lunenburg but after one years lease they decided to clear some virgin land and so they settled in the St. Johnsbury, Vermont area with approximately twelve other families and here they had their remaining children while they lived there.  Levi and his older sons farmed their not over fertile acres and managed a respectable, but frugal living.  Levi and his sons also built their own furniture and the home they lived in.Levi and Lucina had eleven children.  They were: Levi Mason who was born in 1803; Lucina who was born in August 1804; William who was born December 14, 1806; Zerubbabel who was born in March 1809; Willard Trowbridge who was born November 6, 1811; Mary Melvina who was born July 30, 1813; Shipley Wilson who was born in 1816; Erastus Fairbanks who was born November 9, 1818; Charles Van Rensselaer who was born in August 1821; Lydia Mason who was born in 1823; and Mellisa who was born August 20, 1826.In 1826 Levi and his sons finished a new barn for their farm.  While Lucina and the girls where helping clean up the newly completed barn, Lucina laughingly remarked, I think, girls we should move into the new barn and let the cows and horses live in the old house."  A few weeks later the Snow home burn to the ground.  With the help of their neighbors most of their furniture and books for their children were saved and the new barn became their home for the rest of that summer until they were able to finish a new home late that fall.Levi was a devoted and God fearing Christian although he never belonged to any organized religious group.  He did however, study the scriptures intently and encouraged this amongst his family members.  The Snow family was known as "Seekers" or those who were seeking after God's truths.In 1832, while Levi's sons, Zerubbabel and William were working in Charlestown and living with their cousin, Winslow Farr they were blessed to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ from Elder Lyman Johnson and Orson Pratt.  After hearing the Elder's message they returned home very excited to tell the rest of the Snow family.  It was not long before Orson Pratt came to St. Johnsbury and taught the many interested families in the area in the Snow's new barn.  Levi's son Erastus was 15 years old at the time and on the evening of the first meeting he asked his father, Levi if he could be baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ.  Levi's reply was, "Wait awhile son.  Study your Bible still more.  Be sure you have been converted by the Lord and not by Elder Pratt's persuasion.  Wait al least six months.  Can you do that?  You will have six months for your ardor to cool.  If you are really converted, it won't be hard to wait that long."  Erastus was baptized February 3, 1832, approximately six months later.  Early in May of the same year, 1832 all the rest of the Snow family was baptized, all but Levi and his son Shipley.Some years later, Levi and the remaining children that were at home, sold their farm in Vermont and went to Kirtland to be with the saints.  Levi knew that there would be no happiness for Lucina until she too could make her home among the saints.  The Snow family only stayed in Kirtland for a week or so and then moved on to Far West, Missouri in order to help build the capitol of Zion.  Besides they thought it would be foolish to buy land in Kirtland and then have to move again soon.  Levi and Lucina suffered the persecutions that the saints endured in Far West and were included in the expulsion of the saints from Missouri.  At the time the mobs came to Far West to evict the saints, Levi's son, Erastus was home visiting his family and both Levi and Erastus had the "shakers" as Levi called the chills and fever of malaria.  While in this terrible condition, Levi's son, Charles came home shouting, "Oh, father, the mobocrats are camped on our pasture!  I think they have butchered our cows for I couldn't see anything of them and I surely could smell meat sizzling in their camp vessels."  Levi and Erastus rose from their sick beds and ran to their place with the Mormon militia.  Levi's son, Erastus testified that as he ran, he prayed to be healed and his prayers were immediately answered.  The chills and fever instantly left him."  Levi not being a Mormon had not given up his arms to the mobs, so as he ran with his son to join the Mormon militia he being too weak to fight, handed his gun to Erastus and he grabbed a pitchfork.  The mob scattered this time but Levi and his family stayed up all night to guard their place not knowing what was ahead of them.  It was not long after this that the saints were forced to leave Far West.  The family left Far West without selling their home which was true in most cases for the escaping saints.  They were however able to sell just enough furniture to buy a team and wagon to get them across Missouri and were glad to get away with their lives.Levi took his family to Quincy, Illinois where they found safety.  They arrived in Quincy having traveled 200 miles in about twelve days.  Levi fought the chills and fever of malaria all across the state of Missouri which made the trip quite miserable.  On arriving at Quincy, the Snow family moved on to Lima where they set up residence in a fairly comfortable house on a farm that they bargained for.  Some time after this, Levi began to build a new home for Lucina.  Levi had about two years to enjoy Lucina after leaving Missouri, without all the persecutions they had endured in Missouri before he passed away.  Levi died on November 2, 1841 in Montrose, Lee County, Iowa.  Montrose is just across the river from Nauvoo and many of the saints were in the Montrose area.  Levi was 59 years old when he passed away.  It was recorded through family information that he died of malaria.It was said of Levi, by his son Erastus, "Father was such a wonderful father, honest and true.  He was the personification of kindness.  He was way ahead of his time in his thinking."It is not known why Levi never joined the church, but what a tribute of love he has shown to Lucina, to have endured so much persecution while they lived among the saints.

ISAAC FARWELL3 (Ensign Joseph2, Henry1), b. about 1678, in Chelmsford, Mass. in. probably about 1704, Elizabeth Hyde, of Newton, Mass, She was a dau. of Jonathan and Dorothy (Kidder) Hyde, and was b. May 23, 1680, in Newton. He is often mentioned between 1700 and 1719 in the land records o! Middlesex County, Mass. He was of Groton, Mass., Oct. 22, 1700, when he received land in Groton by deed from his father, Ensign Joseph Farwell. He was still residing there Aug. 22, 1704, when he purchased a dwelling house and land in Dunstable, Mass. His first purchase in Medford, Mass., was May 4, 1708, when he gave a negro man named Henry for land owned by Eleazer Wyer of Medford. It is probable that he removed to Mansfield, Conn., in 1721, which was his residence until his death, June 28, 1753. He is usually called a brickmaker in Middlesex County, Mass., land records, but in several instances his occupation is given as husbandman.

April 25, 1721, Isaac Farwell of Medford, Mass., bought land of George Momisco and nine other Indians. The tract is described as, lying in Hassanimisco in Suffolk Co. Hassanimisco afterward Grafton Mass.

He probably removed to Conn. shortly after this purchase.
