Surnames: Farndell
My father Clifford Thomas Farndell also was from Portsmouth. His mother's maiden name was Freer and off the top of my head I've forgotten what his parents' names were, I'll have to ask him. He is 90. I have a brother Adam who lives in London and has just discovered an Adam Farndell in the Marines serving in Kosovo. We always thought it was quite a rare name but obviously not. Would very much like to hear from anyone who might be connected.

Surnames: Farndell, Freer
Extraordinarily enuff my father's mother's name was Ellen (nee Freer) but I'm sure there's no connection cuz my father certainly did not com from a family of 14! It's hard to get much out of him about his family so I'm not having much luck in tracing any connections. His father was I believe Thomas Farndell and Thomas had two brothers George and Frank. My father was born in 1913 in Portsmouth. If any of this rings a bell with any of your Farndells please let me know.

Hi Vicky,
Your Dad, Terry is my Uncle...we worked together in a place called Metal box in the 80's before he moved to Cornwall or Devon.

Hi Vicky,
nice to hear from you. My mum and dad are Frank and Vi, lived in the same house in Portsmouth for 40 odd years. They are in their early 70's now and mostly well. We, my wife Andrea and 6 yo Son, George, moved to Phoenix about 2 years ago for my work. I have a brother, Chris 44, (who also worked with Terry as well as me and my Dad) who has 3 sons My sister is Karen (37) who has 2 of each.

You know, I have a feeling that we might have already met (when were you born...or less polightly , how old are you?). I have a feeling we might have met when you were a baby. I'm 46 next month (can't believe it). Are you interested in geneology or browsing, I went to Salt Lake City once, where the Mormons have a massive database that can be accessed for free (it was like IBM). We are a large family, I think but spread out. Communication seems...limited. I know my dad doesn't like talking about his childhood, WW2, family breakup, stuff like that. We had my Granddad living opposite us for years befor he died, and I never knew. How wierd is that?

Where are you, are you living in Devon (is it Devon)? How is you dad (well I hope)? Say hello to him from me.

Hope to hear from you again.

Best wishes, Mike

this is so wierd, my grandfather Thomas Farndell had 2 brothers named George and Frank! Could there be any connection? Did you name your son after a relative perhaps? If not it's a pretty amazing coincidence. My grandfather I believe was in the Navy (as was most of the Portsmouth residents at the turn of the century) and my father was in the RAF. I found a George Farndell somewhere in the New England states, could this be your father's brother? I'm clutching at straws here cuz I've got very little out of my father. Wd be very interested to hear anything you have.
