Notes

Major William Farrar, was born (as shown by a deposition), in 1657, and died about 1721. He was a justice of Henrico, 1685-1715, sheriff 1690, 1691, 1712, 1713, and a member of the House of Burgesses 1700, 1701, and 1702. (Henrico Records). There is on record in Henrico, a deed dated April 2, 1683, from William Farrar and Priscilla, his wife ("late Priscilla Baugh"), conveying to Thomas Lockett, a tract of land on Appomattox river, formerly deeded by Mr. William Baugh to William Baugh, his grandson, December 6, 1668, and since confirmed by gift of said Mr. Baugh to said Priscilla Farrar, sister to the grandson, William Baugh. He married, first, in 1682, Priscilla, daughter of William Baugh, Jr., of Henrico, and second, Mary, widow of William Lygon. The destruction of many of the Henrico records makes it difficult to obtain full information in regard to Major William Farrar and his descendants. He probably died in 1721, as in May of that year there is a suit vs. Mary Farrar, administratrix of William Farrar, deceased, and she also presented an inventory of his estate, for record. There is no record of his will.
