Farrar Coat of ArmsFarrar Coat of Arms

This surname FARRAR is an old West Riding surname. Its origin is uncertain. Fayriher occurs in Cambridgeshire in the 13th century, whilst de Ferar or de Ferrar is found in Devonshire, Derbyshire and Oxfordshire. Other spellings of the name include FARRIER, FERRER, FARRER, FARROW, VAREY, VARROW, VAIROW and VARROW, to name but a few. The name was brought into England in the wake of the Norman Conquest of 1066, and Rogero Pharaone who was documented in the year 1158, appears to be the first of the name on record. Hugo Farrour of Yorkshire, was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. John Farra was recorded in County Yorkshire in the year 1400. William Farar, was chaplain and charter witness in 1491, Scotland. John Farar was recorded in Inverness in 1559. During the Middle Ages, when people were unable to read or write, signs were needed for all visual identification. For several centuries city streets in Britain were filled with signs of all kinds, public houses, tradesmen and even private householders found them necessary. This was an age when there were no numbered houses, and an address was a descriptive phrase that made use of a convenient landmark. At this time, coats of arms came into being, for the practical reason that men went into battle heavily armed and were difficult to recognise. It became the custom for them to adorn their helmets with distinctive crests, and to paint their shields with animals and the like. Coats of arms accompanied the development of surnames, becoming hereditary in the same way. Thomas Fayrhar was documented as having had lease of part of the lands of Craigmakeran in 1585. At Hoxne in County Suffolk, a Dinah Farrer signed the marriage register in 1835. Originally the coat of arms identified the wearer, either in battle or in tournaments. Completely covered in body and facial armour the knight could be spotted and known by the insignia painted on his shield, and embroidered on his surcoat, the draped garment which enveloped him. In many parts of central and western Europe, hereditary surnames began to become fixed at around the 12th century, and have developed and changed slowly over the years. As society became more complex, and such matters as the management of tenure, and in particular the collection of taxes were delegated to special functionaries, it became imperative to distinguish a more complex system of nomenclature to differentiate one individual from another.

The subsidy rolls of Halifax for 1379 (Poll tax of 1377) record a fferror&uxor (Ferror and wife) in the household of a Johannes Hellistones (John Elliston(e) ) in Eland (Elland) Halifax Parish, Morley Wapentake, Yorkshire.  Wills of Yorkshire record a Henry Fareher, and his son Brian Fairher,

The visitation of Westmoreland for 1634 has the household of  Fairers (starting with William Fairer of Shapp Grange, Westmoreland) whose armoral bearings, (coat of arms) is virtually identical to that of John Ferrar, father of William Ferrar the immigrant. Which are similar to the coat of arms for Bishop Robert Ferrar, the Farrers in the Visitation of London.

The spelling of Farrar occurs sporadicially in England after the 17th Century, but is usually spelled Ferrar or Farrer. 

William who migrated to Virginia in 1618 is spelled fferrar in the Jamestown Muster of 1624/25.

As the family migrated out of the James River, some lineages fell into illiteracy because the father died before the children could be tutored.  Education (tutoring) was the financial and personal responsibility of the father. If a father died while the children were still untutored, it became accustom, especially in the south for a relative or family friend to take over guardianship of the child, and often the child so placed served as a servant.

 

As a consequence, many of the family, whose father died while they were untutored, had not the ability to spell their own name, nor were pronunciations entirely correct or properly interpreted, hence some Farrars came to be spelled,for a period of time, Farrow.

 

On the other hand some Farrows, subsequently,  especially after migrating to America had their names spelled Farrar

DNA sorts them out.

There exists persons surnamed Ferror, Ferrour even Farrar who lived in Norwhich, Norfolk during and after the reign of Henry VIII and records exist of them as freemen.

 

To date there are two descendants of a John Farrow who migrated from Hingham, England to Massachussetts and died in Hingham, Mass. They spell their names Farrar today, but they belong to haplogroup I1 which is Viking or Saxon.

 

There are some Farrars and a Farrow who belong to hg R1b1a2a1a1b3c whom are descended from an Alpine Celtic male of the LA TÈNE culture near Hallstadt, Austria.

 

The records indicate that there were at least five different Farrar's that migrated to the colonies and the subsequent United States of America between 1618 and 1820. The earliest was William Farrar who arrivedboard the Neptune in 1618.

There was a Robert Farrar who arrived in Virginia aboard the Transport of London in 1635. There are records of a John Farrar who arrived in New York just before 1820 and there are the New England Farrar'sdescendants of Jacob and George Farrar, scions of the Yorkshire Farrar's, and a cousin line to the Virginia Farrar's. Both of these lines (New England and Virginia) had a patriarch name of Henry who marriedan Agnes. There was Henry Farrar who married Agnes Barcroft, he left a will in 1541 that named his son Brian as beneficiary to his clothier business and his booth at St Bartholemew's Fair in London. Brian married a Margaret Lacy and the descendants of this Henry migrated to Massachussetts before 1700.

 

Then there was Thomas Farrar, 1620 sentence to Virginia by the court of Bridewell.. 1624 dead at Elizabeth City, John Farrar, and there are stories like Finding Thomas Farrar

There are Virginia Farrows, whose patriarch was Abraham Farrow of Prince William Co, who lived circa 1730. His descendants share the same DNA as those descended from William Farrar of Virginia, however their common ancestor lived hundreds of years previous in England.

Then there are the New England Farrows, current spelling Farrar, their ancestor was John Farrow of Hingham, Norfolk, England who died in Hingham, Middlesex, Massachussetts. They belong to haplogroup I1, either Saxon or Viking.

Then there are the New Jersey-Pennsylvania Farrars, it is possible that these people contributed to the migration south to Natchez, Mississippi and are known as The Jersey Settlers. There are no families of this group in the Farrar DNA project as of yet.

The Farrow's of the south were mostly found in the coastal counties of North Carolina, like Currituck and Chowan. Farrow is a common name amongst the Lumbee's of North Carolina and is a name that is eligible, along with a historical prescence in the coastal counties for membership in the Lost Colonies DNA project. While apparently the modal DNA is R1a1, aka Kurgan (so named for it's origin in the kurgans of Russia, the burial tumuli of the Scythians located between the Caspian and Black Sea, it is also known as Viking DNA because it was spread around the British Isles, France and the low lands by the Vikings.

However there are many origins for the name, including derivatives of iron worker from the latin ferre. And there is even a Glen Strathfarrar (Farrar River) in the highlands of Scotland. A short winding river. The name is derived from the Pictish Var -"to wind", which the Romans called Varrar. However Pictish/Celtic DNA is R1b1b2, not R1a1.

There are two Viking versions of the DNA. One is Norwegian, the other Swedish/Danish, The Norwegian DNA continued to mutate after the split. The Norwegian DNA is marked by DNA Y Segments (DYS) of YCAII a and b of 19 and 21, the Danish, Swedish (and Slavic) is YCAII a and b of 19 /23

Most of the Farrar participants Lineage 1a and 1b, are 19 and 23, thus indicating a Danish Viking origin which could denote Norman Ancestry, see the Wiki article on Rollo, or descent from the Danish Vikingsich settled in England before the Norman invasion. However Aethelred the Unready wiped out the Danes living in the Daneslaw, when he unleashed the St Brices Day Massacre in 1002, 64 years before the Viking Conquest.

Another option is, since R1a1, is also prominent amongst Serbs and other Slavs is that these Farrar's are descendants of Sarmatian or Batavian cavalry men who served as auxillaries in the 9th RomanLegion.

 

 

There are, of course,DNA mismatches, Farrar's with DNA other than R1a1 and non Farrars with "Farrar DNA" This can happen for many reasons such as an adoption or false paternity event, or the surname itself may have been changed, just to name a few possibilities as well as arbitrary surname designations dictated by the Norman enumerators in the Domesday book (1070).

 

Y-DNA also can come in handy if a surname has changed through adoption or the assimilation process (for instance,Italian ancestors changed their last name from Colucci to Colucy). "There are people who do share a common DNA origin, but they don’t share a surname," says Scott Woodward, executive director of the Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation. Say your great-grandfather was adopted. If you found someone whose Y-DNA matched the Y-DNA of your great-grandfather’s male descendants, then you might make some headway in identifying your great-grandfather’s biological parents.

Since a woman doesn’t have a Y chromosome, she must turn to someone with the same Y-DNA as her biological father to trace her paternal lineage. That means her father, brother, uncle (on her father’s side) or male cousin (the son of the father’s brother) would need to take the test. My mothers maiden name is Markland If I wanted to participate in a Markland surname study, I’d have to find a known Markland male relative, to take the Y-DNA test. I’d then compare the results to those of men in the study. Unfortunately that option no longer exists, as my uncle Harry Markland died a few years ago, and his two sons preceeded him, and I know of no other males related to my grandfather Holmes Kurn Markland.

 

To assist those interested in the origin of their surname and its distriubtion in the British Isles

 

I recommend http://www.nationaltrustnames.org.uk be sure to choose the 1881 census map for a more accurate distribution of your surname.

 

The latest DNA finding is that the Farrars of Lineage 1 or rather who trace their ancestry to Henry Farrar/Ferror of Ewood whose will was proved 1549 are of Scythian/Sarmatian ancestry or Hungarian Romanchai (Gypsy) by virtue of having tested positive for the Eurasian SNP (Single Nucleotide Polymorphism) Z93.  This SNP was not found in populations of western Europe or Great Britain until the testing of the Farrar DNA project, and there are cousins, so far of the Evans, Wilson, Douglass and English surnames all of whom seem to share a common ancestor with the Farrars in the century following the Norman Conquest of England.

 

 

R1a1-Z93 was typical for Malaysian Indians and the Hungarian Roma. Inner and Central Asia is an overlap zone for the R1a1-Z280 and R1a1-Z93 lineages. This pattern implies that an early differentiation zone of R1a1-M198 conceivably occurred somewhere within the Eurasian Steppes or the Middle East and Caucasus region as they lie between South Asia and Eastern Europe. The detection of the Z93 paternal genetic imprint in the Hungarian Roma gene pool is consistent with South Asian ancestry and amends the view that H1a-M82 is their only discernible paternal lineage of Indian http://eurogenes.blogspot.com/2012/10/first-official-attempt-to-divide-r1a1.html

It is hypothesized that the DNA which is (ISOGG) R1a1a1b2, might have arrived in England with the court of Margaret and Edward Aetheling.

Margaret and Edgar were children of Edward the Exile, who was sent to Denmark by Canute after he conquered England, as infants, but their guardians learned that Canute had ordered their execution, so they were spirited away to Kiev, and from there to Hungary.

Edward the Confessor, learning that Edwin the Exile (his cousin) was alive, invited him back to England, as his replacement when he died. Edwin died before he could return, but his son and daughter made the trip and landed at York. Edgar had not the connections or clout to aggregate followers and back up his claim, so he gave up the quest.

After Edward the confessor died.Harrald Hdrata invaded, was defeated by Harold Godwinson at Stanford Bridge, who then marched south for two weeks to meet William at Hastings and lost his life and claim.

Many Saxon Earls in the north pledged fealty to William and were allowed to retain their fiefdoms. Then William set his lieutenants out to take a survey, for tax purposes, of his possession. The sons of Algar of Mercia, Aedwin and Morcar, discovered the purposes of the Domesday book and reneged on their pledge.

William then set William Peverel and Henri de Ferrariis (Henry de Ferrers) to punish the north and subdue the rebellion,in a campaign known as Harrying the North. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harrying_of_the_North .

Result of the campaign was that Margaret and Edgar fled from York to Scotland. Margaret married Malcolm III (Macbeth) and was canonized as St Margaret of Scotland.

Given that Margaret and Edgar were born and raised in Hungary, their native language was Hungarian, and their court included courtiers, servants and hanger on’s from Hungary and most certainly Romani as well.

I date the arrival of Romani in the British Isles from the arrival of Margaret and Edgar Aetheling. This is bolstered by the fact that popular "gypsy" occupations like tinker or tinkler were known in Scotland since 1200 if not sooner.

Bolstering this speculation is that a member of the Farrar DNA project is a Douglass (also a known "gypsy" name) whose ancestor Alexander Douglass was born 1735 in Perthshire, Scotland (also a known "gypsy" habitat).

 

The records indicate that there were at least five different Farrar's that migrated to the colonies and the subsequent United States of America between 1618 and 1820. The earliest was William Farrar who arrivedboard the Neptune in 1618.
