Summary of Research To Date

A correspondent provided details of the Family Tree back to Thomas Pharoah b c 1740. Little research has been undertaken since!

We have though come across Farrows when we have researched the Debenham area. We did enjoy a visit to Crowfield (where we found the delightful chapel where Harriet Farrow married William Hunt in 1851) and were able to imagine village folk making the long walk up the lane from the village to church.

Progress 2004/7

The research into the Farrow family name is dormant and exchanges of correspondence have dried up. Things should develop again when I type up my records and identify the next areas of potential research.

Progress 2008

We were pleased to receive an enquiry from a descendant of Harriet Farrow's brother James.

We also added entries from the 1841, 1861 and 1871 Censuses.

Progress 2009/17
