Farriner joined the Baker's Company in 1637, and had his own shop by 1649. By the time of the Great Fire of London, Thomas Farriner was a well-known baker in the City of London, who provided bread for the Royal Navy during the Anglo-Dutch war. He was also a churchwarden.
Thomas Farriner and his children escaped the fire, but his maid died in the flames.
Farriner died in 1670, slightly over 4 years after the fire.
