William Farmer

b. circa 1521, d. 1580
FatherJohn Farmer b. c 1495
     William Farmer was born circa 1521 at Sussex, England. He was the son of John Farmer.
It is known from the will of John Fermor (1558) that he had a brother William who had a daughter Margaret (mother's name unknow, presumed to be Alice based on the marriage of a William Farmer and Alice May in 1554/55. The connection then to the William Farmer who died in 1580 and whose probate was granted 12 Jan 1580/81 is somewhat speculative as explained below.
William Farmer married Alice May on 22 March 1555 at Rotherfield, Sussex, England, (Note: 22 Mar 1554/55.)1
William Farmer witnessed the will of John Farmer dated 13 October 1558 at Rotherfield, Sussex, England.2,3
William Farmer married Elizabeth (?) circa 1570 at England.
William Farmer died in 1580 at Rotherfield, Sussex, England.
William Farmer was buried on 29 November 1580 at Rotherfield, Sussex, England.4
His estate was probated on 11 January 1581 at Rotherfield, Sussex, England, (11 Jan 1580/81.)5
Adminstration of the goods of William Farmer of Rotherfield / was committed on the 11th January to Elizabeth his relict […] [sworn?] £17 13s / Farmer of Rotherfield.
There is no William FARMER/FERMOR marriage to an Elizabeth in the Sussex Marriage Index. If this probate is for this William Farmer then it has to be assumed that William's first wife Alice died and he remarried (note that there is no burial for an Alice FARMER or Elizabeth FARMER at Rotherfield in the SFHG Burial Index).
At the Rotherfield manor court held12 March 1587/88:
William Farmer who dies held to him & his heirs 1 parcel of Strabland at Rotherfield Hill of assart of Townehyll. Comes John Farmer eldest son & heir & prays admittance etc.
It is very possible that this entry relates to this William FARMER who died 1580, even though it was dated 1587/88. It was not unusual for inheritance transactions such as this to occur some years after the death. There are no other William FARMER burials in the SFHG Burial Index for Rotherfield between 1580 and 1587. John FARMER is likely to be the one baptised 5 July 1562 at Rotherfield, son of William (mother not named).
One could speculate further that based on the eldest son’s name of John, that this William was the brother of John FERMAR who died c1559 and left a will made 13 Oct 1558, proved 20 Mar 1558/59 (ESRO: PBT 1/1/4/305A). In this will John FERMAR mentions his brother William FARMER and his daughter Margaret. A Margaret FERMER was baptised 6 April 1555 at Rotherfield, daughter of William (SFHG Baptisms Index).6

FatherFriend Farrant b. 14 Mar 1770, d. 1849
MotherAnne Thomas b. c 1775
Emboidered bed cover made c1838-41 by Harriet Gladman (nee Farrant) on display at The Priest House in West Hoathly, West Sussex, England.
     Harriet Farrant was born on 22 January 1812 at Framfield, Sussex, England.1 She was the daughter of Friend Farrant and Anne Thomas.
There is a piece of embroidery (a young child's bed cover) sewn by Harriet on display in the The Priest House, North Lane, West Hoathly, West Sussex. Harriet records her birth on her embroidery: "I Harriet Farrant was born January the 22th [sic] in the year of our Lord 1812 Aged 26 years 1838". The fact that she gives her age as 26 years in 1838 suggests that she started it before she was married in 1839. She would appear to have finished it in 1841 as it records an event in that year but none after.1
Harriet Farrant was baptized on 26 May 1812 at St Thomas, Framfield, Sussex, England.2
Harriet Farrant married Gideon Gladman, son of Gideon Gladman and Mary Elliot, on 15 April 1839 at St Nicholas Church, Brighton, Sussex, England.3,4
Harriet was a first cousin once removed to her husband, Gideon Gladman. Gideon's mother, Mary, was her first cousin.
Harriet recorded their wedding on her embroidery:
"I Harriet Farrant was united to Gideon Gladman at Brighton Church Monday April the 15th in the year of our Lord 1839".
"O Lord grant that we together may sweetly live
And when it shall please thee to call us to die
Grant we may each a starry crown receive
And reign above the sky.1
"
Harriet's embroidery records the birth of their first child, daughter Harriet Farrant Gladman:
"Harriet Farrant Gladman daughter of Gideon and Harriet Gladman was born Monday November the 16th in the after noon at four oclock in the year of Our Lord 1840"
Sadly, it also records her death just 9 weeks and 3 days later:
"Harriet Farrant Gladman daughter of Gideon and Harriet Gladman died Thursday night at half past ten oclock January the 21 in the year of Our Lord 1841 aged 9 weeks and 3 days".1
On 7 June 1841 Harriet Farrant and Gideon Gladman lived at Terrible Down, Laughton, Sussex, England.5
The 1841 census mistakenly records Harriet's name as Charlott [sic]. Gideon, occupation farmer, is 28 years old and Charlott (Harriet) is 29 years. The place Terrible Down (more often called Tarble Down in legal and manorial documents) does not, as the legends would say, have its origin as the place of slaughter of remnants of the Battle of Lewes in 1264, or alternatively, a place where Alfred the Great fought the Vikings. The true origin is considerably less glamorous, with the authoritative "The Place Names of Sussex" by Mawer and Stenton stating that it probably evolved from "Tordehelle" meaning a dung hill (there was a Robert atte Tordehelle, 1296) and morphed into other variants such as Torble, Tarble and Terrible to hide its unpleasant associations.6
Harriet Farrant died on 18 December 1844 at Laughton, Sussex, England, at age 32. She died of "cerebral disease".7
Note that Harriet's husband remarried on 10 Feb 1846 as a widower, implying that Harriet died before this.
Note also that this death is easily confused with the death and burial of Harriet Gladman (nee Hockham), wife of Henry Gladman, who died 10 Nov 1843 at Laughton age 32 years. The death certificate and burial record for Harriet Gladman (nee Farrant) has not been found yet.
The fact that Harriet's mother-in-law Mary Gladman (nee Elliot) was also Harriet's first cousin was probably a factor in the survival of the embroidered bed cover and she is probably responsible for it being taken to West Sussex where it ultimately ended up in West Hoathly. The 1851 census records show Mary living with Gideon and the children after the death of Harriet in 1844 and Caroline in 1848, so she must have always been there to help Gideon as required. Mary would have valued the bed cover and probably stored it with her possessions at one point, perhaps after the children grew too big for it (if it indeed was used as a bed cover). Mary subsequently moved to Horsted Keynes to live with her daughter Mary Taylor's family, where she was living at the time of the 1861 census. She died there in 1870, age 91 years. Mary's personal possessions probably went to her daughter Mary Taylor who died in 1883 in a carriage accident at the age of 70 years (along with her husband's sister). Alternatively, if the embroidery was kept by Gideon as a reminder of his first wife, then his personal effects would have probably been left to his last (third) wife Mary Ann who died in 1918 at the Sackville College alms-house at East Grinstead, and whose executor was Mary Taylor's grandson, Charles Taylor of Horsted Keynes, according to probate records. So either way, there is a good chance that the embroidery ended up with the Taylor family in Horsted Keynes.
It is not known how the bed cover ended up at The Priest House in West Hoathly, but Horsted Keynes is only four miles away. Hopefully further investigation will reveal when and how it was acquired by the Sussex Archaeological Society (owners of The Priest House).
An article on Harriet Gladman's embroidery was published by the Sussex Archaeological Society in their magazine "Sussex Past & Present", December 2017 (issue no. 143).
