My Mum is a Farr (Marion Farr). She has a brother (my Uncle) called Austin Farr. They are originally from Darlington (& appeared to have been ? Farmers, mostly). My (Maternal) Grandmother was called Mildred (Audrey) Farr and her Husband (my Maternal Grandfather) was called... actually, i can't remember (shall post back later with info perhaps), but he was in the Navy/Army (in WWII), then thereafter a great painter and was very good at measuring/structural architecture. My Uncle (Austin Farr)- who was one of the best in in class at Mathes, and went on to get a 1st in double Pure Math and Statistics- had quite a highly mathematical/intellectually demanding job invovling the early computers (& had to do all long math equations in his head as there were no calculators, nor much computers back then). His two sons are Steven Farr- again amazingly excellent at mathes (& physics) and completed a physics degree at Manchester University (before getting ME which he currently suffers from); and Alister Farr- Very Good at Art and interested in nature/camping/wildlife, got a degree in Ecology at Sheffield and further went on to work as a wildlife Ranger at Rotheram (& is in the process of architecurally designinh the build of his own house). All of these three above (Farrs) are very Tall (6-7+ feet), somewhat reserved but otherwise good natured and are very good at working puzzles out. They also all like walking/orienteering and running.
My fathers side of the family is from Oklahoma
