an Irish banker, diplomat and writer on Eastern affairs. He was destined for the legal profession, and studied at Trinity College. His attention, however, was early directed to Turkey and the East. After the conclusion of the Crimean war and the signing of the peace of Paris in 1856, the Ottoman Bank was formed through the efforts of English capitalists. Farley accepted the post of chief accountant of the branch at Beirut, which he assisted in successfully establishing. In 1858 he published a work on ‘The Massacres in Syria,’ warmly defending the cause of the Christians.
