John Farndale (FAR00613) was born on 4 March 1886, the son of John, a signalman of Lofthouse. He married Bessie Stainthorpe in Guisborough in 1910. He was a store manager in Guisborough before he emigrated to Newfoundland in 1910. He later returned to live in Guisborough, and later in Southampton. John died in 1966.

John and Bessie had two sons, who were born in Newfoundland. They were Raymond (FAR00804), who was born on 23 February 1914, and Bertram (FAR00855), who was born on 24 July 1919.

Raymond served in the Second World War with the 59th (Newfoundland) Regiment Royal Artillery as 970929 Gunner RWS Farndale. He left Halifax on 6 Jun 1940 and went to 23 OCTU at Catterick in March 1943 and was commissioned into the Royal Artillery in September 1943. He was posted to 23rd Heavy Battery, 59th (Newfoundland) Heavy Regiment RA at Ashford Kent. 20th and 23rd Heavy Batteries were given 155mm guns and 21st and 22nd Heavy Batteries were given 7.2-inch guns. The regiment trained in Northumberland but by July1944 it was at Worthing in Sussex. It went to France and took part in the battles for Caen. By VE-Day it was at Hamburg. Lieutenant RWS Farndale RA went back to Canada in September 1945 with the Defence Medal, the 1939-45 Star and War Medal with a Mention in Dispatches. He joined 166th (Newfoundland) Field Regiment RCA (Reserve) and was with them until 1954, retiring as a Major, earning the Canadian Forces decoration (CD). He became an accountant and lived at St Johns, Corner Brook, Toronto and Halifax.

Raymond married Ellen Maud (nee Tipple) in 1946 in Newfoundland. They moved to Nova Scotia in 1959, and then to Toronto in 1961. They had a son Keith (FAR01041), born in Newfoundland, and a daughter Ada (FAR01117), born in Toronto. Raymond is 100 years old and lives in Guelph Canada. I think Raymond may be the oldest living Farndale.

Bertram served as a sergeant in the RAOC between 1940-45. He remained in England, and married Lillian Rosa Seymour in 1947 at Lichfield. They had two sons, John (FAR01033) and David (FAR01053).Bertram died in 2010 in Yorkshire.

Keith (Raymond's son) still lives in Toronto.

John Farndale (Bertram's eldest son) was born in Yorkshire in 1948, and has three sons, Richard (FAR01224), David (FAR01245) and Stephen (FAR01251).Bertram's other son, David, was also born in Yorkshire, and now lives in Southampton.
