   Another name for Faramus was Farramus de Boulogne Seigneur de Tingry.

  Research Notes:

Held lands at Eaton, Bedford, and Wendover, Bucks.

From Ancestral Roots, Line 158A-23 (p.153):
"The heir of Faramus was his daughter, Sybil, who married Enguerrand de Fiennes, whose heirs are the extant Fiennes family. However, Faramus had two younger brothers, Eustace and Simon, who witnessed his charter confirming land grants at Balham by Clapham made to the Abbey of Bec by their father and grandfather. The Eustace de Boulogne of that document may well be the Eustace de Boulogne who appears in a document of 1145-7 with his brother, Baldwin de Boulogne, the king's chaplain, who could, therefore, be another brother of Faramus.Widicumbe and Ash, in Martock, which had been held by Count Eustace before the Norman conquest, passed to his heir, William, Count of Boulogne (son of King Stephen), who granted these properties to his cousinFaramus de Boulogne, from which the overlordship passed to the Fiennes family. The sub-holders, however, were Boulognes, and in 1227 the sub-holder was a second Faramus de Boulogne, son of Thomas. Presumably Thomas was a grandson or great grandson of a brother of the first Faramus.

  Noted events in his life were:

Adult, by 1130.

In charge of Dover Castle, 1157-1158.

In charge of the Honour of Peverel of Dover, 1157-1158.

Faramus married Maud. (Maud was born about 1110 in <Buckinghamshire>, England.)
