Dec. 31, 1722; m. by Samuel Adams, in Chelmsford, Mass., Dec. 25, 1666, Hannah Learned, dau. of Isaac and Mary (Stearns) Learned of Chelmsford. He is buried in South Nashua, N. H. At the time of his death the town of Nashua, N. H., was a part of the old township of Dunstable, Mass. When the boundary dispute between Mass. and New Hampshire was settled this change in name was brought about. Ensign Joseph Farwell was a large. land owner. Beside the land which he inherited from his father he bought other tracts. In addition to lands in Chelmsford and Dunstable he owned land in Groton, Mass. His grave stone in the Old Dunstable cemetery bears the inscription,  Here lyes ye Body of Ensign Joseph Farwell, Dec'd December ye 81, 1722, in ye 82nd year of his age.  His wife survived him. His will was filed for probate Jan. 16, 1722.

In the year 1700 Joseph Farwell2 bought with Thomas Colburn, his Son-in-law, the Waldo farm in Dunstable, bounded south by the Tyng farm, extending to the mouth of the brook near Tyngsborough meeting house, its Indian name Great Naaeook, to the mouth of Howard's brook, its Indian name Little Naacook, on which Washburn's brush factory is built, and extending from the river west to Brattle's farm. They made a division and Farwell took the southern part, and by his deed, dated May 14, 1702, conveyed one third part of his portion of the farm to his son Henry Farwell3. Joseph and Henry and their families removed to Dunstable in the year 1700 and settled upon this part, Joseph residing on the farm lately owned and occupied by his great grandson John Fanietk  Joseph Farwell is styled in the Old Dunstable records Ensign Farwell.  He was, immediately after is settlement in the town, employed in various offices in the town business. He was selectman in 1701, 2, 5, 7, 10, and also at earlier dates, highway surveyor in 1706, and on important committees in 1702, 7,12,16 and 17. In 1710 Ensign Farwell, Thomas Lund and Joseph Blanchard, selectmen, petitioned the Assembly for aid in supporting the ministry, and in 1711 it is recorded that they received £10 from the Assembly towards payment of salary of Mr. Paris. He was  "Ensign" of the Chelmsford Military Co., 1687-1695. The printed Vital Records of Chelmsford, Mass., do not contain the name of Isaac, fifth child of above family, nor that of a daughter Olive, although both are mentioned by Hill in his  Reminiscences of Old Dnnstable.' Lacking any proof that there was the daughter he mentioned, her name has beeb stricken from this record. Cbelmsford, Mass., vital Records.
