About Jane Farley (Hungerford), of Down Ampney

Thomas m. Jane HUNGERFORD (ca. 1578-1627, b. in Somersetshire, England, daughter of Sir Anthony HUNGERFORD and Bridget SHELLEY). There were actually TWO Towthorpe's in North Yorkshire –one still exists and is immediately northeast of the city of York, and the other (abandoned in the mid-1600s) was off to the East, near the English Channel. The name itself is an English corruption of a Scandinavian name referring to farmland, dating from the Viking occupation of northeast England. (To confuse matters further, there was another Jane HUNGERFORD who married Thomas' brother Fabyan FARLEY. The two Janes were cousins.)

Children:

  1. Thomas FARLEY.....born in 1602, and emigrated to Virginia with his wife, Lady Jane SEFTON, and a servant, Nicholas SHOTTER. They landed at Archer's Hoop, a point of land opposite Jamestown, VA on February 4, 1624.
  2. George FARLEY....ca. 1615-27 Dec 1693, b. in England, d. at Billerica, Middlesex Co., MA. Married Christian Births.
