  • Histories
    Research on The Hardakers of Eccleshill
    Research on The Hardakers of Eccleshill
    Eccleshill is just across the Aire valley from Rawdon and Horsforth, both originally in Guiseley parish, where some of the early HARDAKERs lived. Some of the ones who moved to Eccleshill maintained their links with the Rawdon area. And parts of Eccleshill are closer to Calverley church than to Bradford church, which is probably why some residents chose to patronise the Calverley church rather than go to Bradford. In addition, to make things even more complicated, occasionally some Eccleshill residents were baptised or buried at Horsforth or Rawdon.
    Research on William Hardakers at Horsforth circa 1780
    Research on William Hardakers at Horsforth circa 1780
    There were at least three William Hardakers living and bringing up families at or near Horsforth between about 1774 and 1795. All three were clothiers for at least part of that period. This paper presents one particular evidence-based theory on which William was father to the various Hardaker children baptised at Horsforth or Rawden chapels in the late 1700s and into the early 1800s.
