Robert George Farndale, born Stockton District, 14 February 1909. Son of Henry Farndale (FAR00495).


Robert George Farndale registered Stockton District Jan-Mar 1909

(GRO Vol 10a page 89 - 1837 Online)

His grandson, Paul Farndale (FAR01197) emailed me on 4 April 2004 and told me that he thinks Robert George was one of 13 children and was born in Stockton. Paul has been told that his grandfather was in the merchant navy and settled there to run a pub. He has also been told that the family subsequently moved to Hartlepool and then to Bradford en masse, presumably as the Great Depression hit the north east of England very hard. The Bradford Farndales stem from this line.
