Hamilton S Faber

I learned about Hamilton Stanley Faber from The College of Arms when researching the Faber family. They advised me they held an extensive pedigree for the Faber family, recorded in 1902 by Hamilton S Faber, who was the first cousin of Henry Grey Faber’s father. I subsequently found that Hamilton’s work had been posted online and a link is posted below.
