The Alan & Julie Harmer Homepage
Married in 1970, we were both brought up in the beautiful villages of Gloucestershire and we are now living in an equally beautiful South Pembrokeshire coastal village. We moved from Gloucestershire to Pembrokeshire at the end of 2002 to pursue a more tranquil way of life.
Since the late 1980's we have been researching our respective family trees. Alan's has been helped considerably by the Harmer Family Association, while Julie's Fardon Family has proved to be quite a different interesting project. At first research centred around the Gloucestershire villages, but has now taken in those families that were established around Oxfordshire & Warwickshire.
"Harmers' Piece", Jameston, Pembrokeshire
The Fardon family appear to originate, so far, from the North
Oxfordshire area in North Newington when in about 1508 John Fardon (Vardon),
who was born about 1485, married a lady by the name of Johanna. One of John's
descendants Richard, who was born about 1650, settled in Wooton Wawen in
Warwickshire, England.. He settled in a property that was leased by his father
The Fardons of Gloucestershire,
The Gloucestershire Fardon Family appears to have been centred
around Temple Guiting and Guiting Power, in Gloucestershire, England. The
earliest record appears to be a John Fardon who was sworn in as
Constable at Hayles, Winchcombe, Gloucestershire in 1715. This is confirmed by
the Court Order book for that period. We think that the family moved to the
area initially from North West Oxfordshire and earlier probably from
Staffordshire via Warwickshire. Generally the occupations of the Fardons appear
to centre around Agriculture and Smithying.
