    Notes:

    J. R. Hutchinson, 1922, quoted in The Farwell Family: "'Serjeant of the Mace' of Boston, Lincolnshire, 24 Dec 1635. Resigned the office 29 Dec 1635. [...] The office of Serjeant at Mace was one that could only be held by freemen of the Borough, yet, so far as the Minute Books go, we find no record of his admission to his freedom. This is probably due to some inaccuracy or defect in the indexes which can only be remedied by a thorough search of the Minute Books themselves—a search I was unable to obtain facilities for on the occasion of my visit to Boston."

    Also from The Farwell Family: "Henry Farwell came to New England, with his wife and two children about the year 1636. He settled first in Concord, where he lived until about 1655, when he became a resident of Chelmsford. He was Deacon of the church in Chelmsford. He died Aug. 1, 1670, in Chelmsford and the record states that he died 'suddenly.'"

    Posted by me (Patrick Nielsen Hayden) to soc.medieval.genealogy, 29 Aug 2014, in response to Leo Van de Pas:

    "Possibly because his wife Olive Welby is such a well-documented gateway ancestor, there seem to be a lot of spurious ancestries for Deacon Henry Farwell out there. In fact, as far as I can tell, we know only his father: William Farwell, of (but probably not born in) Boston, Lincolnshire, who died in 1637.

    "The substantially fruitless results of a lot of searching for further Farwell ancestry are documented in The Farwell Family: A History of Henry Farwell and His Wife Olive (Welby) Farwell of Boston, England, and Concord and Chelmsford, Mass., based on the records of John Dennis Farwell and "completed and compiled" by Jane Harter Abbott and Lillian May Wilson (Orange, TX: F. H. Farwell and F. B. Farwell, 1929), which can be read online.

    "It contains transcriptions of William Farwell's will and of the pertinent parish records of Boston, Lincolnshire. It appears that William married, as his second wife, a Joan Cole who died in 1642, but she wasn't the mother of Deacon Henry Farwell."

    Deacon married Olive Welby on 16 Apr 1629 in St. Botolph's, Boston, Lincolnshire, England. Olive (daughter of Richard Welby and Frances Bulkeley) was born before 17 Jun 1604 in Moulton near Spalding, Lincolnshire, England; died on 1 Mar 1692 in Chelmsford, Middlesex, Massachusetts.

    Rector of Odell, Bedfordshire.

    From The Bulkeley Genealogy by Donald Lines Jacobus (1933):

    (Rev.) EDWARD BULKELEY,D.D., second son of Thomas Bulkeley of Woore, Shropshire, by his wife Elizabeth, daughter of Randall Grosvenor, was born not far from 1540. He matriculated pensioner from St. John's College, Cambridge, Michaelmas, 1555; Scholar, 1555; B.A., 1559/60; M.A., 1563; B.D., 1569; D.D.. 1578; Fellow, 1560. He obtained the rectorship of Odell in Bedfordshire, probably in 1571. He "compounded" for the living at Odell, 6 Mar. 1571/2, as is shown by the Bishops' Certificates of the Diocese of Canterbury. This means that he then paid to his superior his first year's salary, as was then the established practice in the English Church. [...]

    It is very difficult to learn much of the personal history of a minister who lived in the sixteenth century and who, by the very nature of his calling, did not figure in the political annals of his generation. He was Prebend of Chester, 1574; of Westminster, 1583; of Lichfield, 1594; and was Vicar of St. Mary, Shrewsbury, 1578-82. We know that he was one of the commissioners appointed by the Bishop of Lincoln in 1608 for the 'Levye of Armour' in Bedfordshire among the clergy.

    We owe to the late Col. C. E. Banks the following interesting item, from Shrewsbury Corporation Record, Burgess Roll, 1580: Edward Bulkeley of Shrewsbury, professor of theology, son of Thomas, admitted burges and has issue: Nathaniel, aged 6; Mary, aged 13; Frances, aged 12; Judith, aged 10; Martha, aged 8; Deborah, aged 5; Dorcas, aged 3; Elizabeth, aged 1. [...]

    Dr. Bulkeley was a moderate Puritan; he resigned his pastorate in 1609, probably because of increasing age, and died at Odell early in Jan. 1620/1. His burial on 5 Jan. 1620/1 was entered in the Odell registers by his son Peter, who had succeeded him as Rector.
