About John B. Farley, Sr.

Probable twin to William. One reference states that Richard and John were twins rather than John and William.

[I also suggest that Griselda BELKNAP is the correct spelling. She married Sir John Carill (various spellings) son of Sir John and wife Catherine Petre] ADDED

Proof of his age is found in a disposition of property entered in a Henrico Co. (now Chesterfield Co.) court record for 1679, in which he stated that he was 31 years old. Reference: Gulf States Historical Magazine, Vol. 1, page 428. In 1692 he witnessed a deed from Peter Field and wife, Judith, to Henry Walthall. (This land had been granted to Mrs. Field in 1678 while she was the widow of Henry Randolph.) Also John Farley appraised the estate of John Stewart, Sr. (deceased 1706), in Chesterfield Co. Reference: Ibid., page 428.

In 1708 John Farley, Sr., of Bristol Parish, Chesterfield Co., made a deed of gift of "my old plantation to my daughter, Mary, wife of Thomas Baugh," and in 1732 a deed of gift of a plantation to son, James Farley, in which he mentions his wife, Mary, and also sons Joseph, John, Matthew, and William Farley. Reference: Ibid. (Dale Parish, Chesterfield Co., VA, was taken from Bristol Parish which lay in Chesterfield and Surry Counties on both sides of the Appomattox.) Reference: Ibid. Children of John, Sr. and Mary Farley: Reference: Ibid. and Jesse Kelso Farley, Jr., Twelve Generations of Farleys (Chicago: Press Albin O. Horn Co., 1934) pages 28-29.
