Hotlink to Lakelawn Obituary:


[--Lakelawn Funeral Home-Metairie, LA; Becky Labry Berthelot]
Farmer probably isn't what you expect. It is an English occupational name derived from the Middle East (Fermer), Latin Firmarias, and referred to the man who collected taxes and revenues and paid a fixed amount in exchange for that practice (Latin: Firmus=Fixed). Secondarily, it denoted a man who paid a fixed rent for the purpose of cultivation. The word Farmer in the context in which we know it today wasn't used until the 1600s. [--Helen Sharpe, Rocky Mount, North Carolina]

Many writers mistakenly labeled the word as a trade name meaning tiller on the field. Most Farmers a higher class. French-Norman name and family to England as companions of the Conqueror. One claims immigration to England from Picardy during reign of Edward III. Name appears as early as early 1400s Earliest recorded spelling is ffermer, probably means provisioner or quartermaster as does the name Stuart in Scotland. Spelled different ways: Fermour, Ffarmer, ffarmer, and Fermor and Farmer. [--Walter I. Farmer, ed. Margaret Farmer Planton, In America Since 1607: the Hollingsworth, Farmer, and Judkins Families; their Ancestors, Descendants and Many Related Families, p. 253, Baltimore: Gateway Press, Inc., 1987.]
I'm not sure if this American branch of the Farmers are connected but I would like to share my Farmer family history.My grandad( funny to call him that when he died at age 23years)was killed in action at Dunkirk.He had only one child, a son , my Dad. My Dad and his mother emmigrated to New Zealand in 1950 when Dad was 14yrs.He married a Kiwi girl of scottish ancestry(Maiden name Campbell her father was a Campbell and Shaw on his mothers side.)Myself and my brother and sisters are the Farmer family in NZ the only ones we belive.The thing is my Grandad had 5 brothers and sisters back in England and my Dad knows little about them or where his cousins, their children, are. Prehaps some went to the US?
Here is my direct line anyway:
Luanne Farmer-(Me)
Alfred Keith Farmer( Dad )
Alfred Farmer ( Died WW2)
Ernest Edward Farmer -Manager of an Engineering works in London, Married to Gertrude Barnett, Children are:
Ernest
Gertrude
Samuel
Geogre
Alfred ( My Grandad)
Violet

I do have more history if anyone is interested.But what I am mainly interested in, is live family members!
I PRESUME YOU ALL KNOW THE HISTORY OF THE NAME?
FOR THOSE WHO DON'T HOW EVER, HERE IS A LITTLE SOMETHING:( taken from an email I wrote to another Farmer family)

Hi I am a 'Farmer' in New Zealand our connection with NZ comes from my Father he came here when he was 14yrs. His dad Alfred Farmer died at Dunkirk in WW2.I don't think we are related though and your coat of arms is different. Ours has 3 Lion heads and the fess runs across in a straight line and we have a' lion passant' on the crest with a closed helmet with a cross( crusader i think)But we do have the same motto. My Dad went back in our family tree to 1165, when we lived in England.He went to Sommerset House. It appears we came over with William the Conqueror in 1066. The name was originally " fermor' and it means 'tax collector'.The first 'Farmer' to England or 'Fermor' was proberbly a Norman Knight as the plumage tells that in the coat of arms. He was prehaps given land to run and thus became a collector of the taxes imposed on the tenant farmers of those lands in Norman times.But I am sure you know all this.Funnything is we know very little about the where abouts of my Dad's cousins, etc.Since after his Dad's death and the fact that his Mum bought him to NZ.He has lost contact. Yet his Dad was a member of a large family.If you have any connections to 'Farmers' in Hertfordshire or there abouts'with the names Ernest Edward Farmer and Gertrude Barnett, please contact me.Or just email anyway.
Just wanted to say hi form NZ.
