"The Farnsworth family arrived in America about 1628. In 1655, we find Mathias Farnsworth, the ancestor who concerns us, living at Lynn, near Boston. Protestant by religion and a weaver by trade, he married for a second time, to Mary Farr, who gave him eight children. Later on they moved to Groton in Maine, where he was one of the pioneer settlers."
