Thomas Farr, of Hardwick, Massachusetts, with whom our narrative begins, is supposed to have removed there from Stow or Littleton sometime previous to 1742, for his name appears as the owner of land there in 1719. In the year first mentioned his wife Elizabeth was admitted member of the church in Hardwick, but no further mention of the family is found in the records there, and it is presumed that he sold his lands and removed to some other town. The Hardwick records mention two sons of Thomas, Thomas, Jr., and Jonathan.
