William Henry Farr and Amelia (perhaps Phillips) descendants near Pontypool
Am looking for information on William Farr (m) Catherine Williams or son William Farr (b. ±1801) (m)Mary Edwards. The family has also been listed in various censuses in Pontypool and many of the other parishes in the Abergavenny area. Five daughters of William Henry Farr (b. 1859) (m) Amelia _____ (most likely her maiden name was PHILLIPS) supposedly all lived in the area. Two sisters lived in Abergavenny and had a shop in the early 1900s. First names of the five sisters were Amelia, Beatrice, Lilly, Gertrude, and Effie. I'm not sure which two had the shop. Any clues/info/help/recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

My name is James Farr.
My Farr lineage is from the Pontypool, Monmouth, Wales area:
1. William Farr (m) Catherine Williams
2. William Farr (m) Mary Edwards
3. Edward John Farr (m) Elizabeth Jane Evans (dau. of Enock Evans)
4. Thomas Charles Farr (m1) Eva Miller (m2) Lucy Evans
5. Albert Charles Farr (from m1) (m) Melinda Brown
6. Lynwood Albert Farr (m) Lura Annie Austin
7. James Bruce Farr
My Brown lineage is from the Midsomer Norton, Somerset, England area:
1. Henry Isaac Brown (m) Sarah Flower Hill (went by Turner because George Turner, b.1819, married her mother after she and her sister were born-whether he is the biological father not known)
2. Melinda Brown (m) Albert Charles Farr
3. Lynwood Albert Farr (m) Lura Annie Austin
4. James Bruce Farr
I am looking for the "missing links" for Farr, Brown, and Turner. There is a "Flower" link, because Sarah Flower Turner's middle name likely comes from her maternal grandmother, Mary Flower, who married Isaac Hill.
On my mother's side of the family are the surnames: Grindel/Grindell/Grindal, Austin, Benson, Blake, Snow, and Hopkins. Stephen Hopkins, who sailed on the Mayflower, and his daughter, Constant/Constance are my link to the Mayflower.
After gathering bits and pieces of information from the 1960s until now, I am now retired and have time to do some extensive research. Any information you would like to share would be greatly appreciated.
