    Notes 
    • While I was reading in my Father's office young Farrer, who had been articled to my Father, sat in the same room. He had been at Balliol and was a great friend of Herbert Coleridge. [Recollections of Charles Meaburn Tatham (1828-1924)].
      * Frederick Willis Farrer later married Mary Richmond, daughter of Julia Tatham, Charles Tatham's 3rd cousin. Possibly this is why he is mentioned.
      * But reference could be to F W Farrer's brother, William James Farrer (1822-1911); or to any of a number of other legal Farrers;
      * Herbert Coleridge (1830-1861), philologist.
