This page was created with the hope that someone might find some of their ancestors and that they may have further information or corrections. Please check out the surnames page to see if any look like yours. These pages contain many histories and photos, not just names and dates. Feel free to email me at the address below with questions or possible corrections. Many people have contacted me with corrections and additions which has been much appreciated.


I also would strongly encourage any male visitors with the surname of "Farr" or any of it's variant spellings listed below, to join the "Farr DNA Surname Project". This is a painless test using a cheek scraper. No needles!!! Click on the FTDNA banner above to join. Check out our DNA results page every few weeks to see what we have found!

This page was last updated on May 11 2024. I have been in the process of finding and verifying all of the male Farr descendants, and their children, of Stephen Farr of Concord, MA for a book on his descendants. I have completed the Farr descendants of all of the sons of Stephen Farr.  It is by no means complete or perfect but is the best I could do with what I have. We recently had a Y-DNA participant that matched the Stephen Farr Sr. line and goes back to Jacob Farr Jr. and Sr. of Chesterfield, New Hampshire. This means that Jacob Farr Sr. is probably an unrecorded son of one of Stephen Farr's sons. Jacob Farr has a descendant named Alpheus Farr who married Sybil Farr a sister to Winslow Farr Sr. and daughter of Asahel Farr. Because of the new Y-DNA match, we now know that Sybil and Alpheus are related and probably 3rd or 4th cousins. Another Y-DNA participant matched Stephen Farr Sr. and has his line back to Rinaldo Farr of New York. I was able to connect Rinaldo to Rufus King Farr and his wife Polly Sawtelle. My original book, Stephen Farr of Concord, Massachusetts b. 1640 : his family, descendants and probable English origins (a DNA study), is now available again in print and is available online at the link below in the table of contents. It will be a while before I make a new edition that includes all of the downlines of Stephen Farr that I have verified. If you have any lines or info missing from this website such as spouses and children, stories or photos, please contact me at The hardest part of doing the descendants is finding the living or those who have just recently passed away. Without your help, many of the lines to the present will be incomplete. I have completed verifying the Farr descendants of Winslow Farr Sr. If you are a descendant of Stephen Farr The Immigrant, please check my work on this website and email me any corrections, additions, photos and short histories if available. I appreciate all the contacts I have received thus far helping to further this work.
