Farr twin girls born 04 January 1845
My 4th great grandfather, William Farr (1801-1875) and his wife Mary Edwards Farr (1803-1845) had The Crown in Raglan in 1841 and he had the Full Moon on George Street in Pontypool in 1851. On 4 January 1845 Mary delivered twin daughters, only to die from complications of childbirth on 13 January. The two girls were Harriet (born at 10 p.m.) and Catherine (born at 11:30 p.m.). Both girls appear on the 1851 census. Unfortunately, Catherine died on 7 March 1856 and was buried on the 13th. That is all the information I've been able to find. If you come across anything or have these people in your tree, I'd greatly appreciate your assistance. Feel free to contact me. I've somewhat accounted for all the other children of William and Mary: Edward John (my 3rd great grandfather), Elizabeth, George William, John Meyrick, Thomas, Mary Sophia, Ann(e) and Jane.

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.
