覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧
Birth:    25 Apr 1583, Eawood Hall, Halifax, Yorkshire, England
Death:    11 Jun 1637, Farrar Island Henrico, Virginia

Arrived in Virginia in August 1618 on the Neptune. [Genealogical Journal Volume 15, Utah Genealogical Association, Summer 1986, pp 39]

William Farrar, I settled Farrar's Island in Henrico County, Virginia. It consisted of 2,000 acres located in a bend on the James River. The location is twelve miles south of present-day Richmond. Also on the northern tip of the land was the settlement of Henrico, the second settlement to be established in Virginia. The settlement of Henrico was abandoned by 1619. On 22 March 1622, the "Great Indian Massacre" took place. Eleven persons were killed at the home of William Farrar. The next day William went to the plantation of Samuel Jordan and his wife Cicely Reynolds, and found them alive and better protected in the Jordan home. William remained there, and when Samuel Jordan died in March 1623, William agreed to Cicely's wishes that he stay on to act as overseer and executor.

William Farrar, mentioned in father's will to receive lands in Hoddesdon, Bloxborne & Amwell, Herts; mentioned as out of England, to receive inheritance upon his return. Sale of land in Herts, 6 Sep. 1631.

[Family Tree Maker, Genealogies of Virginia Families II, Cl-Fi, The Farrar Family p. 744, Broderbund Software, Banner Blue Division] William Ferrar, or Farrar, who came to Virginia in 1618, soon became a man of prominence. He was a commissioner (magistrate) for "The Upper Parts"; and a member of the Council from 1623-1633, or more probably until his death, which occurred some time prior to June 11, 1637.

Served as a Justice of the Peace.


 Notes for Cicely Reynolds:

Arrived in the American colonies on the Swan, August 1610 (or 1611). A source states that she was ten years and alone when she arrived. The Swan, the Tryall and the Noah were the three ships of Sir Thomas Gates's fleet which reached Jamestown towards the end of August in 1611.

World Family Tree Vol.1#2778:
Arrived in Virginia, 1610, on the ship "Swan". No one seems to know who Cicely came with in the "Swan", but it is generally believed she did not come with her parents. Her first husband was someone named "Baley".
Her name is also, spelled "Sisley and Cicilly".

Cicely may have been a friend of Governor and Lady Yeardley - Temperance Flowerdew, who became Lady Yearley, arrived in America at about the same time as Cicely Reynolds. One of Sir George Yeardley's first acts was to grant a patent of land at James City 10 Dec 1620 to Samuel Jourdan of Charles City in Virga. Gent. an ancient planter "who hath abode ten years Complete in the Colony" and to "Cecily his wife an ancient planter also of nine years continuance."

Samuel Jordan and Cicely received land grants for being "Ancient Planters". On one of these grants, on the south side of James River, Samuel built a very large plantation called "Jordan's Journey," where he and his family survived the Indian massacre. However, Samuel died the following year in March of 1623 at his home, called "Beggar's Bush" (present location is Prince George Co., VA). After Samuel's
death Cicely was married three more times: to William Farrar, to Peter Montague, and to Thomas Parker.

After Samuel died he left Cicely with one additional daughter and another soon to be delivered. He was 46 years of age. Rev. Grivell Pooley, who had conducted Samuel's funeral, proposed to the widow shortly afterwards. She apparently consented, feeling the need for a protector, subject to the engagement being kept secret due to the timeliness of Samuel's death and her pregnancy. However, Rev. Pooley "spread the word" of the engagement, and this so ired the young widow that she refused to go through with the wedding. Soon after this, widow Cecily became engaged to Col. William Farrar, and Rev. Pooley thereupon instituted the first breach of promise suit in America. Cecily won the law suit. However, the governor and council enacted a law which prohibited women from engaging themselves to more than one man at the same time. Shortly after the lawsuit, Cecily wed Col. Farrar and had two sons. Cecily wed (4th) Peter Montague and (5th) Thomas Parker.


The following is from the book "the Farrars" by William B. and Ethyl Farrrar:

CICILY FARRAR: Interesting accounts of Cicily Jordan Farrar are found whenever the genealogy of the Farrrar family is given. Below are portions of two stories:

Altogether the Indians in the Massacre of 1622 slaughtered 14 men, women and children, including six members of the Royal Council. Capt. Samuel Jordan fortified Beggars' Bush, known later as Jordan's Journey, and he lived there "despite the enemy." Jordan died a year later, and there was a rush for the hand of his beautiful young wife, led by the Rev. Greville Pooley. Jordan had been in his grave only a day when Pooley sent Capt. Isaac Madison to plead his suit. Cecily replied that she would as soon take Pooley as any other, but as she was pregnant, she would not engage herself she said, "until she was delivered."

But the amorous Reverend could not wait, and came a few days later with Madison, telling her "he should contract himself to her" and spake these words: "I, Greville Poooley, take thee Sysley, to be my wedded wife, to have and to hold till death do us part and herto I plight thee my troth." Then, holding her by the hand he spake these words, "I, Sysley, take thee Greveille, to my wedded husband, to have and to hold till death do us part." Cicily said nothing, but they drank to each other and kissed. Then, showing some delicacy about her condition and the situation she found herself in, she asked that it might not be revealed that she did so soon bestow her love after her husband's death.

Pooley promised, but was soon boasting of his conquest, very impetuously for "Sysley" now engaged herself to William Farrar, one of the Deputy Treasurer's younger brothers, and member of the Council.

Enraged, Pooley brought suit for breach of promise. The case too much for the the authorities at Jamestown, who referred it to London.
The jilted Pooley soon found solace in a bride, it appears, but met a tragic death in 1629, when Indians attacked his house, and slew him, his wife and all his family. (From "Behold Virginia" by G.F. Willison--1951)

Going up the James River you pass Harrison's Landing, Berkely, the Forest --- the next projection of land round which the river leads is Jordan's Point, where once lived the too fascinating widow, Cecily Jordan, whose history recalls another instance of the striking difficulty James River men had in holding their sweethearts to their promises. This headstrong lady provided the unique instance of a woman being sued by a man for breach of promise. When her husband died he left her so comfortably provided with worldly goods that hereby, in addition to her other charms, she became quite irresistible to Capt. William Farrar, kinsman to the Deputy Treasusrer of the Colony, and also the Rev. Greville Pooley, minister of the Parish; and apparently they were quite irresistible to her for she engaged herself to both. The person sued. Though he lost his case and had to sign a formal release to the Widow Cecily bonding himself in the sum 500 L. never to have any claim, right or title to her, the Governor and Council of the Colony were so stirred by the extraordinary incident that they issued a solemn proclamation against a woman engaging herself to more than one man at a time. And there is not in Virginia any known record that this edict has ever been revoked. (From "Tidewater Virginia" 1929)

The career of the fascinating Cecily as a heartbreaker caused the General Assembly to pass a law for the protection of Virginia bachelors, and gave her a place in history.

When the Parson sued, 14 June 1623, Capt. William Farrar, trained for the law in England and now the attorney who administered her husband's estate, successfuly defended Mrs. Jordan in what was the first breach of promise suit in America, winning not only the suit but his client in matrimony.

The Governor and Council could not bring themselves to decide the questions and continued it until 27 Nov., then referred the case to the Council for Virginia in London, "desiring the resolution of the civil lawyers thereon and a speedy return thereof." But they declined to make a decision and returned it, saying they "knew not how to decide so nice a difference."

After the Rev. Pooley signed the release, Cecily "contracted herself before the Governor and Council to Captain William Farrar." Counselor Farrar was seven years older than his wife, Cecily. As far as is known they had only two children--sons. The numerous descendants of Counselor William and Cecily Farrar all stem from the elder son, Col. William Farrar, Jr. (This information was compiled by Louise Spearman) [Sherri L. Acosta, Ancestors of Samuel & Tracy Acosta 10/1/97, (Family Tree Maker User Home Page), "Electronic."]

[Family Tree Maker, Genealogies of Virginia Families II, Cl-Fi, The Farrar Family p. 744, Broderbund Software, Banner Blue Division]
" William Farrar of Henrico county, VA., first appears in any extant record as a patentee of land in 1637. On June 11, of that year, Governor Harvey granted to "William Farrar, son and heir of William Farrar, late of Henrico, deceased," 2,000 acres in Henrico, abutting easterly upon the Glebe land of Varina, and thence extending westerly to the bottom of - - - - Island, southerly upon the Main river, and northerly into the woods. The said land being due him for the transportation at his own charges, of 40 persons into the colony. This land was the neck, now cut off by the Dutch Gap canal, known as Farrar's Island."

Note: "Glebe" refers to land belonging to a parish church.

One of the famous Farrar family members, Col. William Farrar II, born about 1626, tried to get Virginia planters to turn to silk culture instead of raising that "Evil Weede" tobacco. [Herbert Barger, Descendants of Thomas Jefferson I, Family Tree Maker Home Page]
