John, called "John Farmer alias Johnson" in his will, was born betwee n 1571 and say 1580. Either he or his father may be the man who on Nov ember 12, 1604 transferred land in the parish of Ansley via a final co ncord to Humphrey Smyth and Thomas Packwood (the latter apparently hi s first cousin). He made his will September 22, 1625; an inventory wa s dated October 20, 1625, and the will was proved March 17, 1625/6. Th e will indicates he also held land in Twycross, Leicestershire, wher e a Farmer family is well attested. John had a wife Elizabeth, named a s executrix in his will, to whom (if she was the mother of all his chi ldren) he was likely married to say 1600 to 1605, since he named seve n surviving children in his will, only one of whom was then married.

Elizabeth's surname and origin are not known, though she may be connec ted to one of John's "loving friends and kinsman" who were to be overs eers of the will, either William Brooke of Elford or Willing Keeling o f Hollerton. Elizabeth was perhaps the "Elizabeth Farmer, widow" was b uried in Ansley November 20, 1652.

John's will named two sons, John, who was to inherit "the house and la nd where I dwell" in Ansley, and Edward, who was to inherit "my hous e and land at Twycrosse," as well as "ten poundes to set him up in hi s trade." The will named five daughters, beginning with Hannah, who wa s to receive, along with her two daughters (names not given) 12d. each . The other four daughters, Elizabeth, Patience, Mary and Lydia, wer e to receive sixteen pounds each "at the day of their marriage or with in three years after my decease." The will also named two godsons, Jos ias Packwood and James Bush, and three "loving friends and kinsmen" wh o were to be overseers. An inventory of John Farmer's estate was swor n in October, 1625, showing that he died shortly after making the will .
