Sarah Flower Hill - Turner
My great grandmother, until this week, has been refered to as Sarah Flower Turner, who married Henry Isaac Brown. I just received a copy of one of her son's birth certificate which names his mother as Sarah Brown, formerly Hill. Sarah's mother, Elizabeth Hill, had Sarah in 1844 and her sister, Louisa, in 1847, before marrying George Turner on 9 October 1849. They had a son, William James, who was born in 1850. Does anybody know of a source to find out if George Turner actually adopted the two girls or if they just went by the name Turner? On Louisa's birth certificate the name of the father is left blank and the mother is listed as Elizabeth Hill. It's possible that Turner was actually the biological father of the two girls, but there's no way that I know of to prove that. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
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.
