Re: FARLOW family book

In Reply to: Re: FARLOW family book by Margaret Barron of 337

It appears that nobody has visited this site for quite some time; I just recently found it. This is in response to comments regarding two books: The Farlows Over a Thousand Years and the Farlow Family book. The Farlows Over a Thousand Years, is by Denys King-Farlow, date 14 April 1940. On the title page is a notation that it was copied by Archibald John Callcott Farlow in February 1967. It was printed by Gravesend & Dartford Reporter Ltd., 44-46 Harmer Street, Gravesend. Those who have challenged the Farlow Family book will be interested that King-Farlow (English) traces the Farlow line from Adam through Noah, King Cerdic of Wessex, then to Sweyn, son of Godwin and Githa, through the Plantagenent Kings of England (King Ethelwulf, 13th in line from Cerdic, the common ancestor of the House of Farlow) and a host of other dignitaries, ending early in the 20th century.
I find I have copied it twice (63 pages), once I believe at the library of Congress and once at the Society of Genealogists in London. By the way, King-Farlow lists as sources William of Malmesbury, St. Luke's Gospel and Asser of St. David's. There appears to be no connections between King-Farlow's line and the ancestors of E. E. Farlow.
The E. E. Farlow book was compiled long before recent standards of proof were promulgated throughout the land and should be understood in that context. There have been three versions of his book. First, a brief typescript of a few pages, a copy of which I have seen at the Society of Genealogists in London. Second, a hardbound copy of 130 pages, and last, a hardbound copy of over 300 pages with a supplement of about 100 pages. I assume it is the latter that Thomas Delcano is using.
