WYARD, Ursula

From records in the posession of Tim Farr.

 Stephen Aidous was born in Fressingfield, Suffolk, England, in 1637. When he was a few months old his father, Stephen Aldous, died, and in due time his mother remarried.  Stephen became a tailor, and in about 1661 married Ursula Wyard, of Earl Soham, Suffolk, the par- ish where she had been born in 1641.  The couple's first child was born at nearby Eye in 1662.  In April of 1664 Ursula's father, Francis Wyard, died, and in his will bequeathed ten pounds to "Steaven Alldis my sonn in lawe." He also gave "unto Ursula Alldis my daughter that my messuage [a house with its outbuildings and yard], or tenement in Earlesoham. . . "  Stephen and Ursula evidently moved to their inherited property, as their next three children were born at Earl Soham, in 1664, 1667, and 1670.  The next year they moved to Fressingfield, Stephen's native par- ish, and here six more children were born. Stephen's father, at his untimely death in 1637, just after young Stephen was born, had stipulated in his will that his widow was to have his property as long as she lived, and then it was to go to his son Stephen.  She, Anne, lived to be quite old, and in the Court Rolls of the Manor of Chevenhall alias Chepenhall, under date of 17 March 1697 we find the following (abstracted): "Stephen Aldous, formerly a copyhold tenant, died long since, and Anne Dains, widow, formerly Anne Aldous relict of said Stephen, is also now dead.  She held for her lifetime, by virtue of the will of her dead husband Stephen Al- dous, premises called Babilons alias Bourneys alias Peasley, which he inherited Court Record I October 1628 under the will of his father Stephen Aldous.  Now comes Stephen, only son and heir of the first- mentioned Stephen Aldous and Anne his wife, and is admitted tenant." This record gives us three generations of Stephen Aldous'. Ursula died in 1701, and in 1704 Stephen married Susan Morce (or Merce).  In the marriage entry he is called "Stephen Aldous Senr Taylor." When he wrote his will the next year, 1705, he called him- self a yeoman (farmer of his own land), so he himself probably con- sidered being a yeoman more important than being a tailor.  In his will Stephen gave to his son Stephen "all that my Messuage or Tenement wherein I now dwell together with all & every the houses Outhouses Yards Gardens Orchards Lands meadows pastures Feadings hereditaments & Appts whatsoever to the said Messuage or Tenement be- longing Scituate lying & being in Fressingfield. . . " Son Stephen, in turn, was to pay legacies, some of twenty pounds and some of ten pounds, to his brothers and sisters Francis Aldous, William Aldous, Martha, Ann Aldous, Margaret Aldous, Thomas Aldous, John Aldous, and James Aldous; also "to Ursula Aldous my Grandchild ten pounds when eighteen." (Ursula was daughter of Stephen.)  Stephen lived for quite a few years after his will was written, having almost reached the age of eighty-four when he died and was buried at Fressingfield in January of 1722. (The date was 1721 by the calendar then in use in England; up until the year 1752 the first day of the year was March twenty-fifth.)

Jonathan FARR 3rd [Parents] [scrapbook] 1-11272 was born 2, 3, 4 on 3 May 1746 in Stow, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States. He died after 11 Oct 1794 in Dummerston, Windham, Vermont, United States. Jonathan married 5, 6 (MRIN:1456) Lucy FAY-2528 on 27 Oct 1763 in Hardwick, Worcester, Massachusetts, United States.

Jonathan was also known as Jonathan Farr Jr.. His will was probated 7 on 16 Dec 1794 in Dummerston, Windham, Vermont, United States.

Other marriages:
FARR, Mrs. Hannah

Jonathan Farr III was styled the third to avoid confusion with other Jonathan's on the tax records. It in no way suggest lineage!

From Vanessa Herring:
Jonathan 3rd's last land transaction in Chesterfield was to sell 50 acres of Lot 11 in the 13th Range to Joseph Nurse of Dummerston, VT, on 8 Mar 1791. On the same day, Joseph Nurse sold Jonathan Farr 3rd of Chesterfield NH land in Dummerston, all of Lot 118 - 100 acres.
     
Jonathan Farr of Dummerston later sells 40 acres of Lot 118 to Peter Lamb of Dummerston, on 11 Oct 1794.
     
Only 2 months later (third Tuesday Dec 1794), Hannah Farr applied for her letters of administration "upon the estate of Jonathan Farr her late husband, late of Dummerston, deceased." Bond was provided by Thomas Farr (probably her son), and warrant to appraise was given. The inventory was completed 2 Jan 1795, mentioning a home farm and wild land.

From Vanessa Herring:
Mr. Farr,

I've been doing an analysis of the land records for the 4 Jonathan Farrs of Chesterfield, to see if I can approximate the death year of Jonathan 1st. Here's what I've found:

First, we know that Jonathan Farr first was alive at the 1790 census, as were 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.

Jonathan 1st moved from Lot 5 11th Range, likely to be close to his sons in his old age. He purchased from Samuel Davis part of Lots 13 and 14 in the 14th Range on 5 Apr 1781. (He sold his Lot 5 11th Range land to Jonas Davis in 1785.)

Jonathan 2nd died about 25 Feb 1791.

Jonathan 3rd moved to Dummerston VT a little after his purchase of land there on 8 Mar 1791.

In administering Jonathan 2nd's estate in 1792, Jonathan 4th calls himself Jonathan 3rd, now 2nd in court papers. (The judge seems to ignore this, and always calls him Jonathan 3rd.)  This would seem to indicate that the original Jonathan 3rd is no longer counted, since he has removed to Dummerston VT.

Likewise, Jonathan 4th does not take into account Jonathan 3rd, who is still living, but located in Dummerston VT by 1792. Selling estate land on 5 Dec 1793, he calls himself "Jonathan Farr 2nd, administrator of Jonathan Farr 2nd".

This would seem to indicate that Jonathan 1st is still living in 1793.

Jonathan 4th last called himself Jonathan 2nd in a deed on 8 Jan 1794. He first calls himself only Jonathan on a deed of 24 Apr 1794. It would appear that Jonathan 1st probably died during this time period.

By 1802, Jonathan 4th calls himself Esqr in his land transactions, and after his death in 1807 is referred to as Major Jonathan Farr by the administrator of his estate, John Kneeland.

Land transactions by John Kneeland reveal that Jonathan 4th's wife's name was Mary.
