I have been researching my family tree since my paternal grandfather died in 1976. Whilst researching my mother's ancestry I started recording every instance of her maternal grandmother's name FARMERY and so my one-name study was born! I now record every instance of the name I find all over the world, and my database currently contains over 51,600 name events. I am constructing family trees for each family group and try to put distant cousins in touch!

My study covers the FARMERY surname and known variants such as FARMEARY, FARMEREY, FARMARY and FARMERIE, as well as instances of the name being used as a forename rather than surname.

Custodian Database Hits 50,000!

Having entered into Custodian all the births after 1916 from National Registration where the mother's maiden name was Farmery/Farmeary/ Farmary etc and all the Farmery household schedules from the recently released 1911 census (I have photocopies of every schedule) I can announce that the number of Farmery name events in the database now exceeds 50,000 - and to be precise is actually just 113 short of 51,000!
