The original name of the Farrand Family is believed to be Dusson (d'Usson, D'Usson, or D'Husson). Members of the Family were
Counts of Mont de Ferrand and Clermont-Ferrand in southern France. Daniel d'Usson was a Huguenot and fled to England in 1550.
It was there he adopted the name "Ferrand", or "Farrand". His decendant, Nathaniel Farrand, emigrated
from London in 1645 and settled in Milford, Connecticut. His grandson, Samuel Farrand (1680-1750)married Hannah Wheeler,
daughter of Joseph and Dorcas Wheeler. They had ten children. Descendants listed below lived in New Jersey and elsewhere.
I have more information than that which is listed here. For simplicity, I have only published MY direct line to
the Patriarch, Nathaniel Farrand I.
