A geographical perspective:




























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



It is generally possible to trace back from most lines to the common ancestor for many Farndales, Nicholas, born in 1512. For instance below is my own line back to Nicholas. Each Farndale Line page will consider how each line can be traced back further.


Nicholas Farndaile (FAR00059), 1512-1572


William Farndale, (FAR00063), 1539-?


George Ffarndayle, (FAR00067), 1570-1606


Georgins Ffarndayle, (FAR00073), 1602-1693


Nicholas Farndale, (FAR00082), 1634-1693


John Farndale, (FAR00116), 1680-1757


John Farndale ("Old Farndale" of Kilton), (FAR00143), 1724-1807


William Farndale, (FAR00183), 1760-?


George Farndale, (FAR00215), 1790-1858


Martin Farndale (of Fogga, Skelton), (FAR00264), 1818-1862


Martin Farndale (of Tidkinhow), (FAR00364), 1845-1928


Alfred Farndale, (FAR00683), 1897-1987


Martin Farndale, (FAR00911), 1929-2000


Richard Farndale (FAR01122), b1963

The Australian Farndales


The Argo left Liverpool on 8 October 1852. Onboard were Matthew (59), Hannah, his wife (45), Elizabeth (19) their youngest daughter and Mary Ann (23) and her husband William Martin (23). This is the story of their emigration and descendants.

Samuel Farndale emigrated to Oshawa, Ontario (near Toronto) at the end of the nineteenth century and this page tells the story of his descendants: Ontario 2













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.

The Tidkinhow Line who emigrated to Alberta.




So, there are four main branches of the family who emigrated to Canada:


The Newfoundland Farndales and The Newfoundland Line

The second branch of the Ontario Farndales and Ontario 2


   The Alberta Farndales and The Tidkinhow Line
