i found on the background of the name. the family decended from a companion of william the conqueror. the earliest spelling was ffermour in records dating from 1354. if you get this site go to index and click on in america since 1607 and you can read about it. i am just starting my search on the farmer family. hope this helps

Farmer Names

William Farmer (1550) had a son Thomas Farmer. He came from England to Virginia in 1615 out of the Port of London to Virginia. This was 4 years before the Mayflower landed at Plymouth Rock in 1620. They've been here a long time. Names were from saxon I'm told and were fermour, Fermor, Farmor, and Farmer from many parts of England. I can go back to this William as being my 11th Great Grandfather. Most Farmers in relation being in, NC, SC, TN, and other places. Just passing through. Thanks
