Apr. 1645; Mary, 27 Feb. 1647; Timothy; and perhaps more ch. at W.; at
Billerica, by w. Christian, had Samuel, b. last week of Mar. 1655; and
Mehitable, last week of May 1656; d. at B. 27 Dec. 1693. Farmer says he
was early mem. of the Bapt. ch. at Boston, where the spelling is Farlow.
Timothy was k. with seven others by the Ind. at Brookfield 2 Aug. 1675.
MESHACK, or MESHECH, Ipswich, s. of Michael, m. 6 Aug. 1684, Sarah, d. of
Thomas Barnham, wid. of .....Clark, had Meshack, b. 10 June 1685; Michael, 2
Aug. 1686; and Jane, d. young; d. bef. his f. leav. wid. Sarah, and s.
Meshack, and Michael. Admin. was gr. 23 Dec. 1696, and the two s.
acknowledged rec. 14 Mar. 1712, from their uncle Michael, of their portions
of f.'s est. and the elder of these two s. d. 6 Mar. 1716. MICHAEL, Ipswich,
sent over, says Farmer, 1675, from Eng. by Richard Saltonstall to have
care of his fulling mill, had Meshack, bef. ment. and Michael. MICHAEL,
Ipswich, s. perhaps, of Meshack, but more prob. of the preced. m. 1708,
Mary, wid. of Benjamin Woodbury of Beverly, had issue, it is thought; and
perhaps Gen. Michael, wh. d. 20 June 1789, Shf. of Essex, was a descend.
Seven of this name had been gr. at Harv. 1834, and three at other N. E.
coll.

    FARMAN, RALPH
, came from London, a barber-surgeon 1635, aged 32,
in the James, with w. Alice, 28; ch. Mary, 7; Thomas, 4; and Ralph, 2; but I
find nothing of his resid. or d. and think it not improb. that he was one of
the first sett. of Andover, and his name was Farnum or Farnham. But
THOMAS Farman was of Milford 1658, and may not have been s. of the
preced.

    FARMER, EDWARD, Billerica, s. of John of Ansley, or Anceley, near
Atherstone in Warwicksh. came in 1671 or 2 with his mo. Isabella, a wid. wh.
m. Elder Thomas Wiswall of Newton, outliv. him, and d. 21 May 1686 at the
ho. of her s. He brot. perhaps, sis. Isabella and br. Thomas, certainly w.
Mary, d. Sarah, b. a. 1669; and prob. John, 19 Aug. 1671; had here Edward, 24
Mar. 1674; Mary, 3 Nov. 1675; Barbara, at Woburn, 26 Jan. 1678, d. at 4 yrs.
in B.; Elizabeth 17 May 1680; Thomas, 8 June 1683; and Oliver, 2 Feb. 1686; was a
