Note on Husband: Charles William FARTHING

There is no trace of a marriage between Charles and Mary Park, despite research having been undertaken by several Farthing researchers to locate one. As a result there is some difficulty in identifying the father of the children listed with the couple in the 1901 census and therefore tracing their births.15

Note on Wife: Mary PARK

Mary seems to have had most of the children to unnamed father(s) before she met Charles Farthing.
