Biography

DISPUTED PARENTAGE

You just touched upon one of my favorite subjects - Lady Jane.
A couple of us ladies here have been researching this woman and I can

tell you that she was definitely NOT a legitimate daughter of Sir Richard the 1st Baronet of Sefton Molyneux and Lady Frances Gerard of Sudbury. I know what all of the sources say, but she's just not listed in the household records or papers of either one of her parents or grandparents. There is a great deal of mystery surrounding the reason why she styled herself a Lady. Quite a few people surmise the reason that was called Lady may be just out of respect, but I don't think so, or it would have been used for more ladies than just her. We also have to look at the problem of locality. How would a young girl from Liverpool meet and marry a man from Worcester ? She had to have been relatively young when they married because she has a scad of children after coming to Virginia. My illustrious sister in arms, Dot Duncan, has deserted me for a few weeks to go overseas, but we have poured over this problem for quite a while and the only person we can come up with that fits this bill is a young woman born out of wedlock in Lancashire. She was christened on Sept 30, 1607 at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin. Her name was listed as Jane Molyneux and her parents were Margrette Hope and Sir John Molyneux. We figure she was later sent to live in Worcester with relatives in order to avert any embarrassment to the Molyneux family in residence at Sefton. This, of course, is only supposition on our part at this point. Since both Dot and I are bordering on the legally insane, you can take it for what it's worth. But, I DO still have Jane attached to Sir Richard and Lady Frances Gerard Molyneux in my database, just for now. We do intend to get back to Worcestershire soon to find out what we can about both Thomas and Jane Molyneux Farley. I won't even touch upon the controversy surrounding Thomas and his ancestry at this point since it tends to throw people into a frenzy.

But we are working on it.

Information for Thomas Farley

Born about the year of 1600 probably the son of Roger Farley, married lady Jane Sefton, of the line of the Earl of Sefton about 1622. [2]

They sailed on the ship "Ann" and were living at Archer's Hope, James City County, Virginia, 16 February 1623. [3]

Their first child Ann, was born on the way over and is said to have been named for the ship.

Tomas Farley was a "member of the House of Burgesses for the plantations between Harrop and Archer's Hope and Martin's Hundred at the session of March 1629-30 and for Archer's Hope February 1631-32." [4]

At Court in James City, 21 August, 1626, Thomas Farley, gent, confessed to "being absent from church on the Sabbath day for three months. He was ordered to pay 100 pounds of tobacco into the public treasury." [5]

From the minutes of the Council and General Court, 1622-1629: "Thomas Farley of Archer's Hope bargained with Widow Bush for the land he was settled on." [6]

Notes

Note N439Croxteth Hall is the former country estate and ancestral home of the Molyneux family, the Earls of Sefton.[1] After the death of the 7th and last Earl in 1972 the estate passed to Liverpool City Council, which now manages the remainder of the estate, following the sale of approximately half of the grounds. The remaining grounds, Croxteth Park, were at one time a hunting chase of the Molyneux family and are now open to the public.
In short, the family descends through Lady Jane Sefton - daughter of the Earl of Sefton whose family links back through the Plantegenets. Lady Jane arrived in the New World in 1623 at Archer's Hope (near Jamestown) aboard the ship, 'the Anne'. She was with her husband, Thomas Farley..
Little is known of Lady Jane - she is reputed to be the daughter of Richard Molyneux, the Earl of Sefton. The Molyneux/Sefton family group can be traced back in time as descending with and marrying into the lineage of the Plantagenet kings of England..
Tracing this line back through Lady Jane places this family in descendancy of Charlemagne and the Plantagenet kings of England..

Additional research is needed for this profile in regards to parents. At some point, if it is proven that Molyneux is indeed her LNAB, we will change it, but until that documentation is provided, we will leave as is, Sefton is the earliest last name documented.
