Help Wanted: HALFACRE family

Mrs. Janet Holley, Nr. Sittingbourne, Kent

I am seeking further information on the Halfacre family. My fivetimes grandfather Francis HALFACRE married Elizabeth COLLINS in Hurst, Berkshire on October 20, 1763 and moved to Wokingham. Until now I have not been able to find his date of birth or his parents. Many of his descendants were farmers. His grandson William, born in 1803, married Arm BOYEE, and lived at Foxley Green Farm, Bray. His sons were: Robert, born in 1846, married Sarah Brangwin and lived at Little Foxley Farm; Thomas, born in 1848, married Mary ARM and lived at Common Farm, Bray; William, born in 1842, married Sarah Arm COMPTON and lived at Creswell's Farm. I would like to know what kind of farms they were and more about this interesting farming family.
