Robert Beardmore of Farley purchased tithes of Farley in 1607. He leased his farm from The Earl of Shrewsbury in 1613.

We believe he had at least five children: Thomas, Robert (buried September 9th 1684), William (buried March 25th 1656), Elizabeth and Dorothy.

Robert’s will was dated April 21st 1619 and proved on May 30th. He is buried at Alton.
