Bartholomew Farmer

b. circa 1500, d. 1558
FatherEdward Farmer b. c 1475, d. b 1539
MotherMargaret (?) b. c 1480, d. 1539
     Bartholomew Farmer was born circa 1500 at England. He was the son of Edward Farmer and Margaret (?)
Possibly son of Edward and Margaret Farmer because:
1. Bartholomew's brothers George and William are named in his administration after his death (see below). Their occupations are tanner and trugger respectively.
2. It is speculated that Edward FARMER had a son George (see admon for George FARMER 1558) because George inherited a property that belonged to Edward Farmer; the assumption being that George was Edward's son & heir (however, it is also possible that Edward was an uncle and not the father). The information is found in the Rotherfield manor court held 22 Oct 1559 (at the time of George's death) notes that "At this court it is found by the homage that George Farmer who held 17 acres formerly Edward Farmers died as siesed & there falls a heriot a red hoved cow which has been delivered, that George Farmer is his eldest son & next heir & is 15 years old & now he comes & asks admittance & gives of relief 5/- etc."
3. The admon of this George FARMER 1558 does mention a William FARMER and although it does not specify the relationship it does give his occupation as trugger.
4. Analysis of surviving FARMER wills and admons does not show any other obvious link.
Although speculation, it is mentioned here to aid future research.1

Edward Farmer

b. circa 1475, d. before 1539
     Edward Farmer was born circa 1475 at Sussex, England.

Edward and Margaret may have had a son Bartholomew. There is an administration for Bartholomew Femer in 1558:
Admon – Bartholomew Fermer 1558
(ESRO: PBT 1/1/4/170A)
Admon: 1558
Rotherfield
Bartholomew Femer dying intestate
George Fermer tanner [sic] William Fermer trugger his brothers
having [sworn] to administer… [can’t make out the rest].
(Transcribed by Claire Wickens, 4th March 2017 for Geoffrey Barber)
The only reason to link Bartholomew to Edward is through the naming of brothers George and William, and William's occupation of trugger which links Bartholomew's and George's admons.
Bartholomew is listed here as a son as an aid to future research. See details on his page for the full reason for this speculation.1
Edward Farmer was a witness: Possibly son of Edward and Margaret Farmer because:
1. Bartholomew's brothers George and William are named in his administration after his death (see below). Their occupations are tanner and trugger respectively.
2. It is speculated that Edward FARMER had a son George (see admon for George FARMER 1558) because George inherited a property that belonged to Edward Farmer; the assumption being that George was Edward's son & heir (however, it is also possible that Edward was an uncle and not the father).
