Descendants of Thomas Farrell

Thomas Farrell, who married Anne Amy at the beginning of the 19th century, was an immigrant to Jersey, but it is not known where he came from, although it was probably Ireland. Descendants of Thomas Farrell was added to the site in October 2016 and having received a new descendancy, we combined elements from both into this new tree in November 2017

The research we carried out to combine the trees identified a problem with the children of Thomas Farrell (gen 2), a mason.

We previously showed him as being married twice and having two children by Marguerite (Margaret) Marett, and then four more by Marie Romeril. However, the list of Farrell baptisms shows clearly that the two sets of children overlap. The 1891 census shows Thomas and Margaret still living together in their seventies.

It is now clear that there was more than one Thomas, and that the one married to Marie Romeril was born in 1807 in St John, and a thatcher. We have found records for the marriages of both Thomas Farrells, but have been unable to identify the parents of the earlier Thomas, who has now been omitted from this tree.

Further information received in December 2017 suggests that the Thomas Farrell who emigrated to Australia and married Naomi Goldsmith (gen 3) may have had no connection with Jersey and should not be in this tree. Passenger lists and an obituary for Thomas in Australia show his father as Patrick and his birthplace as Ireland, in 1842, which suggests that his family did not emigrate from Jersey.

We are investigating further, but suggest that the part of this tree highlighted in red is treated with suspicion.
