Monument: Water-Trough and Cross – William Francis Gamul Farmer (1812- 1860) – BellGate Entrance – (East) Nonsuch Park [Cheam] (11.8.2022)  

Willian Francis Gamul Farmer married one ‘Matilda Farmer (nee ‘Wilkinson’) [1815-1889] and produced eleven children with here – seven boys and four girls. The names of his children were William Robert Gamul Farmer, Thomas Allix Farmer, Matilda Frances Farmer, George Lancelot McLean Farmer, Margaret Anna Farmer, Emily Mary Farmer, Charles Edward Farmer, Revd. James Edmund Gamul Farmer, Henry Lowth Farmer, Catherine Augusta Farmer and Francis Colebrooke Farmer. He inherited from his grandfather when aged 26 years old (in 1838) and again from his father – William Meeke Farmer (1778-1840) – when he was 28 years old in 1840! This is why he lived the care-free life associated with the landed gentry. Willian Francis Gamul Farmer was appointed Deputy Lieutenant for Surrey before reaching the Office of High Sheriff of the County of Surrey – when he received his appointment in 1849 (when he was around 37 years old). Indeed, so important a person was he – that an oil painting was commissioned to record this important event – which seems to show him around 37 years old (although I cannot find any verification for the date or the name of the artist, etc).

Note also the use of the phrase ‘Local Governing Body’, this is the ‘privatised’ Trust – that has replaced the Local Education Authority (LEA) – comprised of local (and often ‘not so local’) business interests that are responsible to the Tory government of ‘monetising’ our children’s education!

Every six months or so the small bell on the roof is rung with some of the local elderly still thinking it is warning of a Luftwaffa attack! The Church Hall is down the road and used by play groups and for dance lessons, etc. We were not allowed to rent it on Sunday mornings as Taijiquan is an evil (heathen) activity, which oddly enough, is sometimes performed on the heath!
