red mail WYNN and SYMES - Farleigh Wallop
I'm trying to find out about the school in this village. My father went with his sister to live with their grandparents, James and Caroline WYNN in Faleigh Wallop for a while in 1918 after their mother had died. I remember him telling me about how all the children of different ages went to the same school, so I imagine it must have been in the village. I'd love to know more about it. Any ideas how I could access any school records from then? If anyone knows anything at all about the village, I'd love to know. I think they lived in Bard's Lane, or some name similar. He and his sister were named SYMES.
red mail Farleigh Farm and Manor Farm, Farleigh Wallop
Does anyone know anything about FARLEIGH FARM or MANOR FARM both in Farleigh Wallop near Basingstoke, in the 1850-1870 period? From 1850 to about 1867 Farleigh Farm was run by a ROBERT BROWN and family; it comprised about 60 acres and employed lots of labourers and carters all living on the farm, as well as three domestic servants and a children's governess. Robert Brown was born about 1808 in East Halton, Lincolnshire, and in 1848 in North Cambridgeshire married SARAH SHILTON BROCKLEHURST (a sister of my great great great grandfather); their first child, Alfred, was born in March, Cambridgeshire, in 1850 and soon after the Browns moved to Farleigh Farm where a further five children (Arthur, Mary, Robert, Walter and John) were born between 1851 and 1859. But Farleigh Farm does not appear in the 1871 census. Coincidentally (perhaps) Manor Farm which did not appear in 1861 does appear in 1871, and is run by a WILLIAM BROWN and family - who, going by their children's birthplaces, moved from Somerset to Manor Farm between 1864 and 1867. Add to this that a Robert Brown of the right age died in Stockbridge, Hampshire, early in 1867, and it seems possible that William Brown was related to Robert and took over Farleigh Farm on Robert's death and renamed it Manor Farm. Does anyone know?
