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.

The 3rd edition of the National Burial Index was launched by the Federation of Family History Societies at Who Do You Think You Are Live! at Olympia on February 26th 2010.

This latest edition has over 18 million burials from the 16th to 21st centuries (an increase of 5 million on the 2nd edition) including 830 with a Farmery surname or forename, an increase of 167 from the previous edition.

There are a total of 2.3 million burials for the West Riding of Yorkshire, 819,000 for Lincolnshire and 281,000 for Nottinghamshire
