Lived

 

George was the eldest son of William Farndale (FAR00183)who farmed at Kilton Hall Farm, but it was his younger brother Martin who continued to farm at Kilton Hall and the farm later passed on through his brother John. So why did he not farm at Kilton Hall Farm? He appears to have been ill, since by 1846 his father provided in a will for a sum to be managed by his brothers for his boarding and medical assistance.

 

It appears that he lived in Easby where he farmed, after his marriage in 1816 until about 1825. He then moved to Marton (near Ormesby and Great Ayton) before moving back to Brotton, by which time he was recorded as a labourer. By 1846 provision was being made in his fatherís will for his brothers to have responsibility for his boarding and medical care. He was living with his brother, Martin (then farming at Kilton) by 1851 and he died in 1858 at the age of 68.


Easby is
5km east of Stokesley, 2km south east of Great Ayton.


Between 1816 to about 1840, George lived at Easby Hall.

When Martin was born in 1818, George was a farmer.

 

Census 1841 - Brotton:

George Farndale, age 50; Ag Lab; born in Yorks; (ie 1791)

 

But what has happened to his wife and family; was he ill, see his fatherís will, written in 1846 which included provision for him via his brothers:

 

ďÖAnd I give and bequeath unto my sons John Farndale, the said Matthew Farndale and Martin Farndale, the sum of One Hundred pounds upon trust to apply the same, or any interest which may arise therefrom in case my said three sons should place out or invest the said sum of One Hundred pounds at interest in providing Board Lodging Clothing or Medical attendance to and for my son George Farndale at such times and in such manner as my said three children shall think proper, provided always, and I declare and direct that in case my said three sons, the said John Farndale, Matthew Farndale and Martin Farndale shall think it expedient to lay out or expend the said sum of One Hundred pounds in any other manner than is hereinbefore mentioned, in favour of my said son George Farndale. I hereby authorise and empower them so to do, it being my Will and intention that my said three sons shall have the complete control, management and expenditure of the said principle sum of One Hundred pounds and interest if any. And I declare and direct that in case the said principle sum of One Hundred pounds and interest, or any part or parts thereof shall not be expended by my said three sons at the time of the decease of my said son George Farndale, then, and in that case, I give and bequeath the same to the children of my said son George Farndale to be divided equally between and amongst themÖ.Ē

 

His brother John was the writer and insurance broker; Matthew emigrated to Australia, and Martin continued the farming at Kilton.
