This Letter was in the belongings of .....John Allen Farley 1888-1992...Farley name

Contributor: SouthPawPhilly Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

The name Farley, believe it or not, is not Irish, it is English. What do you think about that? We stem from one of the oldest, and most select families in England. In fact we can track our ancestry way back before the year 1000 AD if we so choose. Our ancestor was William DeFalaise, the 27th Lord of the Castle Falaise in Normandy. William was a direct descendant in a long unbroken line of Norman Noblemen who themselves were the descendants of the Vikings who raided the coasts of France between 400-800 AD. William was a courter Favorite of Duke William of Normandy. He accompanied Williams in the Last invasion of Britain in 1066, from which the Duke got the name of William the Conquerer. Following William's quest of the Saxons. The Duke gave our ancestors 29 Manors and Lordships in the county of Devon, these in Summersetshire. DeFalaise built his castle and named it Farley which is the anglicize version of DeFalaise. Thus we got the name. The direct descendants of William DeFalaise, that is father to son etc. finally played out in 1570. The last direct descendant of William was a girl, who married a man named Huntington, their child also a girl, married a kinsman named Fabyan Farley, who was the 6th son of Reginald Farley of Towthrope, Yorkshire. By this marriage the name Farley was carried on in England, however our interest now shifts to Reginald Farley. He had 5 other sons, George, Michael and Roger being the ones who interest us. George and Michael are believed to be the ancestors of the New England Branch of the Farley Family. Roger is the ancestor of the Virginia Branch of the Farley Family. Now reflecting back to Reginald Farley he to was a direct descendent of William DeFalaise although not in the direct line of succession. It no doubt of his being the 2nd son etc. Those accounting for the fact that he was not the Farley in control of all the Manor etc.

Life timeline of John Allen Farley

1888
John Allen Farley was born on 10 Jan 1888
John Allen Farley was 7 years old when Mahatma Gandhi forms the Natal Indian Congress (NIC) in order to fight discrimination against Indian traders in Natal. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was an Indian activist who was the leader of the Indian independence movement against British rule. Employing nonviolent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. The honorific Mahātmā – applied to him first in 1914 in South Africa – is now used worldwide. In India, he is also called Bapu and Gandhi ji, and known as the Father of the Nation.
John Allen Farley was 18 years old when Albert Einstein publishes his first paper on the special theory of relativity. Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. He is best known to the general public for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2, which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation". He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect", a pivotal step in the development of quantum theory.
John Allen Farley was 29 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
John Allen Farley was 42 years old when Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio.

Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.

The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
