John Farmer

b. circa 1520, d. circa 1559

Parents:

Father: John Farmer b. c 1495
Last Edited: 25 Apr 2017
  • Birth*: John Farmer was born circa 1520 at Sussex, England.
  • He was the son of John Farmer.
  • Anecdote: John FERMOR's father has been shown as John FARMER based on:
    1. John FERMOR's will (1558) identifies a sister Joan FERMOR.
    2. The will of Thomas FARMER (1529) identifies a son John with a daughter Joan.
    So the connection must be considered speculative and certainly not proven.
    Pullein speculates that John could share a common descent (perhaps they are cousins) with Alexander Fermor of Walsh Manor (son and heir to William Fermor who died 1540) because they both named their first daughter Silvester. The fact that John possessed a number of landholdings and is referred in the court rolls as gentleman at one time, would support this also. Alice Farmer who married John Nynne alias Barber is likely his sister or cousin also, as "John Nynde's children" are also mentioned in his will. She is shown as a sister in this family tree for the purpose of connecting her to the family.1
  • Anecdote*: Between 1540 and March 1543/44 a John FARMER is recorded as Curate and Clerk at Rotherfield St Denys church. This may/may not be the same person.2,3
  • Marriage*: John Farmer married Odyan Kent on 26 July 1544 at Rotherfield, Sussex, England, Odyan was a widow.4
  • Anecdote: A grant of land by Adam FERMER of Rotherfield, yeoman, to Robert FERMER and John STAPLE 20 January 1547 mentions that the land is south of land of John FERMOR called Archerede. (ESRO: DYK 377.)
  • Anecdote: In the manorial records of 17 October 1556, John FERMOR is recorded as headman for Southborgh (or Southborough) which included the village of Rotherfield.5
  • Anecdote: John Farmer's burial has not been found but would have been late 1558 or early 1559. There is a gap in the church registers 1555 to 1558 due to the turmoil caused by the reign of Bloody Queen Mary.
  • Will*: John Farmer left a will made on 13 October 1558 at Rotherfield, Sussex, England.6,7
  • Death*: John Farmer died circa 1559 at Rotherfield, Sussex, England.8
  • Anecdote: Note: the burial record has not been found. It would have occurred at the end of 1558 or 1558/59 at the end of the Philip and Queen Mary reign when many records were not kept (ended 17 Nov 1558).
  • Probate*: His estate was probated on 20 March 1559 at Archdeaconry of Lewes, Sussex, England, (20 Mar 1558/9.)6,7
  • Anecdote: Full transcript of John Fermar's will, 1558:

    (Transcribed by Rosie Ansell March 2016 from a copy supplied by Geoffrey Barber)
    NOTES:
    A weanling animal was one that was being weaned or was just weaned
    Fallow was a pale brownish or reddish yellow
    Names in [ … ] by Geoffrey Barber from his family research. John Fermar's [Farmer's] daughters Sylvester, Avis, Grace, and son Adam all documented in Rotherfield baptisms parish register.
    [Gertrude] interpretation is based on:
    Christopher Whittick (ESRO archivist) had written Gertrude on the sheet that he returned to Rotherfield church archivist Alan Yates but then crossed it through and written Gatbred instead with a message that they were the letters as written.
    The name in the will is tricky to read but it could be interpreted as Gartred according to Rosie Ansell.
    The only possible baptism for Gertrude at Rotherfield is:
    Gyrtsered [sic] Farmer, baptised 20 March 1551/52 at Rotherfield. Brian Cutler (SFHG Baptisms Index coordinator) checked this in the original records on 24 March 2016 and agreed with the transcription so it has been left unchanged in the Sussex Baptisms Index but with a note suggesting the probable interpretation is Gertrude.
    Gatbred, Gartred and Gyrtsered would all be phonetic spellings. This was at a time when spelling was very fluid and influenced by a person’s accent.
    The will mentions Thomas as a brother of John Fermar, and also lists John Nynde’s two children as beneficiaries (John Nynne married Alice Farmer on 8 April 1554 at Rotherfield). In the Rotherfield manorial records for 1588 Thomas and Margaret Farmer nominate their daughter Gertrude Savage,wife of William Savage,as their heir, thus confirming that a Gertrude Farmer did exist. John Nynne facilitated this transfer. In the later will of Henry Aderoll alias Skynner, made 6 July 1612, the families of William Savage and George Barber alias Nynne (son of John Nynne) are beneficiaries. While not absolute proof, these connections support the view that this Thomas Farmer was the brother that John Fermar mentioned in his will and hence that his daughter Gertrude, baptised 1551/2, is likely the Gartred/Gatbred also mentioned in the will.
    OTHER NOTES:
    Joan Hodley married Nicholas Sloman on 11 Jan 1567/68 at Rotherfield (Sussex Marriage Index).
    The godson John Farmer is possibly the son of Thomas Farmer who was baptised 12 Jun 1547 (no mother given). There are no other John's in the baptism register.
    William Farmer married Alice May on 22 Mar 1554/55 at Rotherfield. Margaret was baptised there on 6 Apr 1555.

Odyan Kent

d. 1585
Last Edited: 20 Mar 2016
  • Anecdote*: Pullein states that Odyan's name appears as Ogene in the manorial rolls and suggests a more accurate spelling would be Odiane.1
  • Anecdote: Odyan was a widow when she married John Farmer. The church records suggest that she may have been the widow of Thomas A'Kent as around 1540 there were two A'Kent fathers having children baptised - Thomas and Richard A'Kent (mother's names not given). Thomas disappears from the Rotherfield register after the baptism of his daughter Dorothy (bap. 2 Nov 1541 - bur. 13 Feb 1548) while Richard continues having children after Odyan re-marries in 1544.2
  • Marriage*: Odyan Kent married John Farmer, son of John Farmer, on 26 July 1544 at Rotherfield, Sussex, England, Odyan was a widow.3
  • Married Name: As of 26 July 1544, her married name was Farmer.
  • Death*: Odyan Kent died in 1585 at Rotherfield, Sussex, England.
  • Burial*: Odyan Kent was buried on 17 September 1585 at St Denys, Rotherfield, Sussex, England, wyddowe.4

  • Baptism*: Adam Farmer was baptized on 8 March 1551 at Rotherfield, Sussex, England, surname recorded as FARMOR (Note: 8 Mar 1550/51).1
  • He was the son of John Farmer and Odyan Kent.
  • (Witness) Will: Adam Farmer is mentioned in the will of John Farmer dated 13 October 1558 at Rotherfield, Sussex, England.2,3
  • Anecdote*: In John Nynne alias Barber's will of 1589, he appoints Adam Farmer, son of John Farmer deceased as an overseer on his will. Adam is probably related to John Nynne alias Barber's wife Alice (nee Farmer). Alice may be a sister to Adam's father John Farmer. Note that the manorial records record the death of John Farmer at the court held on 22 Oct. 1 Eliz (1559) and his 8 year old son Adam is admitted as heir (Pullein transcripion page 38 of 78).4
  • Death*: Adam Farmer died in 1625 at Rotherfield, Sussex, England.
  • Burial*: Adam Farmer was buried on 12 September 1625 at St Denys, Rotherfield, Sussex, England.
  • Anecdote: The manorial court roll records the disbursement of Adam Farmer's property after his death to his sister Avis Catt and his nephew John Lockyer, son of Silvester Lockyer. It would appear that Adam never married.5,6
  • Will*: Adam Farmer left a will made on 1625/26: yeoman; Money bequests only; 8 Sep 1625; 20 Dec 1625, 3 Feb 1626 and 16 May 1626. (ESRO: AMS 6326/130)(PCC: PROB 11/147 s295.)
