General Sir Martin Farndale KCB



If you have your own story about a particular branch of the family, please let me know and we will tell your story too.


With William ffarnedaill born 22 January 1599 (FAR00071), we start to get to much more detail about the individual, and certainty of record. For instance we now have his full date of birth record. William is not in my own direct line of ancestry. But it is at this point that we start to get to different lines to modern families named Farndale


























This web page explores some particular branches of the family.




I can trace my own lineage back to Nicholas Farndale. I believe that most living Farndales today, will be able to trace into this line at some point, and thereby trace back to our common ancestor, Nicholas.

The Alberta Farndales


This was a branch of the family who emigrated from the family of Martin to Alberta in the early twentieth century. Some stayed, one travelled on to the States, and my own grandfather later returned to Yorkshire.

This is my own branch of the Farndale family, descendants of Alfred, who emigrated to Alberta, Canada in the 1920s, and later returned to North Yorkshire.


The Whitby Farndales were sailors and others engaged in trades such as carpentry in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
