The Family of George Farrar and Judith Jefferson
William and Priscilla Farrar also had a son George who was born about 1695. To say George married well is a significant understatement for he married about 1717 to Judith Jefferson , born 1698, daughter of Thomas Jefferson II and aunt of Thomas Jefferson, 3rd President of the United States.
George and Judith occupied Gilly’s Mill Plantation, which her father deeded to George in 1729. "The deed describes the plantation as being in Henrico County Southside (which later became Chesterfield County), south side of Swift Creek, both sides of Reedy Run, near Curles. Described as on John and Frederick Baugh’s line, it was also in the neighborhood of the Jefferson plantation." Miss Holmes continues, "George and Judith Farrar occupied this plantation for about thirty years during which he was active in the life of the county, serving on the jury, acting as appraiser and processionar of land in 1736." George and his family later moved to Mecklenburg County, Virginia on the Roanoke River where he died at about the age of 80 in 1772. His will is on file in Mecklenburg County, VA. Judith is believed to have died about 1786 at the age of 88 years.
