Ancestors of Tim Farr and Descendants of Stephen Farr Sr. of Concord, Massachusetts and Lidlington, Bedfordshire, England


Samuel HILDRETH [scrapbook] 1-6561 was born 2 on 25 Jul 1735 in Chelmsford, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States. He died 3 on 22 May 1812 in Chesterfield, Cheshire, New Hampshire, United States. Samuel married 4 (MRIN:2901) Hannah FARR-13183 on 27 Nov 1759 in New Hampshire, United States.

Hannah FARR [Parents] [scrapbook] 1-13183 was born 2 about 1740 in Stow, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States. She died 3 on 23 Dec 1786 in Chesterfield, Cheshire, New Hampshire, United States. Hannah married 4 (MRIN:2901) Samuel HILDRETH-6561 on 27 Nov 1759 in New Hampshire, United States.

The following was brought to my attention by Vanessa Herring on August 12, 2017:
Mr. Farr,

     I have an interest in Samuel Hildreth who married Hannah Farr, since my James Wheeler became guardian of several children in that branch of the Hildreth Family. I came across your research on the various Hannah Farrs, and realized that I have the answer to your question of which Hannah Farr married Samuel Hildreth of Westmoreland NH.

     The answer lies in a quit claim deed that was executed in Chesterfield NH and Boyleston MA in 1787. The following persons of Chesterfield participated in the quit claim: Samuel Hildreth [wife Hannah possibly having died before/during 1787], Daniel Farr, Edward Hildreth and wife Sarah [nee Farr], and Mary Farr. Patience Farr of Boylston MA also participated. For the sum of 5 lbs, each, they quit claimed to Samuel Farr of Boylston MA their interest in the estate of "our hon'd father Daniel Farr late of Shrewsbury North Parish, now called Boylston, deceased". 

    So, the Hannah Farr who married Samuel Hildreth was an unrecorded daughter of Daniel Farr and Leah Unknown. Neither the date nor place that Daniel married Leah are known, but Hannah must have been born around 1741/2, though she is not recorded in Stow.

Source for the above land deed:"Massachusetts Land Records, 1620-1986," images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QSQ-G9ZH-27TG?cc=2106411&wc=MCBL-BP8%3A361612201%2C361838001 : 22 May 2014), Worcester > Deeds 1788-1790 vol 106-107 > image 128 of 707; county courthouses and offices, Massachusetts.

They had the following children.

  M i Isaac HILDRETH-6506 was born on 19 Sep 1767. He died on 14 May 1812.

Jonas FARR [Parents] [scrapbook]-6510 was born 1, 2, 3 on 12 Mar 1769 in Chesterfield, Cheshire, New Hampshire, United States. He died 4 in 1814 in Lynn, Susquehanna, Pennsylvania, United States. Jonas married 5 (MRIN:2902) Parney BARROS-6709 on 29 Jul 1792 in Dummerston, Windham, Vermont, United States.

Parney BARROS-6709 was born 1 on 30 Apr 1772 in Warren, Worcester, Massachusetts, United States. She died 2 in 1850 in Wyoming, Pennsylvania, United States. Parney married 3 (MRIN:2902) Jonas FARR-6510 on 29 Jul 1792 in Dummerston, Windham, Vermont, United States.

  M ix Abner Kneeland FARR-6719 was born on 18 Nov 1812. He died on 19 Oct 1884.

Jonathan FARR 3rd [Parents] [scrapbook] 1-11264 was born 2, 3, 4 on 3 May 1746 in Stow, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States. He died after 11 Oct 1794 in Dummerston, Windham, Vermont, United States. Jonathan married (MRIN:2903) Mrs. Hannah FARR-6517 about 1768.

Jonathan was also known as Jonathan Farr Jr.. His will was probated on 16 Dec 1794 in Dummerston, Windham, Vermont, United States.

Other marriages:
FAY, Lucy

Jonathan Farr III was styled the third to avoid confusion with other Jonathan's on the tax records. It in no way suggest lineage!

From Vanessa Herring:
Jonathan 3rd's last land transaction in Chesterfield was to sell 50 acres of Lot 11 in the 13th Range to Joseph Nurse of Dummerston, VT, on 8 Mar 1791. On the same day, Joseph Nurse sold Jonathan Farr 3rd of Chesterfield NH land in Dummerston, all of Lot 118 - 100 acres.
     
Jonathan Farr of Dummerston later sells 40 acres of Lot 118 to Peter Lamb of Dummerston, on 11 Oct 1794.
     
Only 2 months later (third Tuesday Dec 1794), Hannah Farr applied for her letters of administration "upon the estate of Jonathan Farr her late husband, late of Dummerston, deceased." Bond was provided by Thomas Farr (probably her son), and warrant to appraise was given. The inventory was completed 2 Jan 1795, mentioning a home farm and wild land.

Mrs. Hannah FARR 1-6517 was born about 1748 in of Chesterfield, Cheshire, New Hampshire, United States. She died after 16 Dec 1794 in Vermont, United States. Mrs. married (MRIN:2903) Jonathan FARR 3rd-11264 about 1768.

I wouldn't be surprised if this Hannah was actually Hanah Farr daughter of Thomas and Hannah Farr of Hardwick.
