Thomas Farndell b 1790 Rumboldswhyke, Sussex

Thomas Farndell b 1790 Rumboldswhyke, Sussex

Surnames: FARNDELL, MILES, BURCHILL, SX.
After a long break- many computer crashes, have a little more info on my Farndells. Thomas, b 1790, married Charlotte Burchell, later Chelsea Pensioner, many daughters and one son, George b 1835, married Matilda Archer, born and lived in Chichester. George had several sons, one my grandfather, James Thomas Farndell, served on the Royal Yacht, and later HMS Victory in dry dock (of course!)married Charlotte Miles.

Does this very potted history ring any bells?

Look forward to any new news,

Shirley Simms

Hi Shirley I've tried to contact you a number of times before, my name's Susan Farndell and I live in Brighton. I had originally traced my family back to George and Hannah in Felpham but I now think he was very possibly the one born in 1782 in an area of Chichester and I think your Thomas may have been his brother. I'm not absolutely sure but I think I have a record for Thomas's birth too so if you'd like to contact me we can compare notes. Thanks.

Hi Susan, Hope you haven't been waiting too long- I let my Ancestry subs lapse last year. My email is semassies@fsmail.net.

How wonderful! Thomas has become a brick wall, waiting for me to visit Sussex record office. I would love to share what I have (not a lot) but 2 heads are better than one. Looking forward to your reply. To think he might be there all the time, and a brother!

best regards, Shirley

Have seen your posts on Ancestry (I am a subscriber) about Thomas Farndell who was born 1790 Rumboldswyke, Chichester, Sussex and was a chelsea pensioner. My father and I are researching this direct ancestor and would be happy to share information. He must have been married before Charlotte Burchell as he served in the army in the West Indies 1821 to Oct 1827, having a son James born in St Lucia about 1826. We do not know the name of the first wife - have hit a bit of a wall on this! He returned to England with James (perhaps the first wife died in St Lucia) in Oct 1827 and was pensioned out of the army 16 Nov 1827. James Farndell, son of Thomas, was brought up by Thomas' sister Mary in Chichester. My Father and I are descendants of Thomas Farndell through his first son James.
