Anne Farr (1843 -?) born Anne Cole
Anne Cole, known informally as Annie, was born in 1843 in Lea in Essex to potter John Cole and his wife Mary, and she grew up at the Tottenham Tile Kilns. As a young women, she worked as a servant, in 1861 with her sister Charlotte in Westminster.
In 1875 at Edmonton, Anne married Charles Farr, a gardener, born Ewell in 1844, and the couple went on to have the following children:
William Charles Farr, born in the last quarter of 1875 at Long Ditton, near Kingston in Surrey. He was an apprentice gardener in 1891 and a compositor living at Tolworth in 1901 with his parents. He was probably married at Lambeth in first quarter 1903 to Clara Hannah Simmonds or Annie Waite.
Annie Martha Farr, born in the second quarter of 1877 at Long Ditton. She was living with parents at Tolworth in 1901 and was probably married in first quarter 1905 at Epsom to Alfred John Carter or Albert Henry Wood.
Harry Farr, born in the first quarter of 1880 at Long Ditton. He does not seem to appear in 1901 census. He was probably married in second quarter of 1910 to Mary Daniels or Marie Rosina Nash.
- Charles Edward Farr, born in the second quarter of 1882 at Long Ditton. He was a gardener in 1901 and was probably married in third quarter 1908 to Elizabeth James or Ellen Syms.
There was also a daughter Amy Jane Farr, born 1872 at Ewell in Surrey, but as this was before Ann and Charles' marriage, she may have been the product of an earlier marriage. Or she may have been an adopted relative.
Although various census information puts Charles and Ann at Long Ditton, according to later information within the family they kept a small farm at a place called Ruxley Ewell in N.W. Kent.
