    Histories
    Research on The Hardakers at Rawdon and Surrounding Areas: The Early Generations
    Research on The Hardakers at Rawdon and Surrounding Areas: The Early Generations
    The first Hardakers apparently arrived at Rawdon early in the seventeenth century. It seems likely that the family originated in Ribblesdale, in and around the Forest of Bowland. The surname was probably originally a place-name. There are a couple of hamlets at Newby, near Clapham, in the shadow of Ingleborough Hill and in upper Ribblesdale, which are now called Upper and Lower Hardacre. These might well be what remain of the place concerned.
    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.

  • Notes 
    • Mentioned in the wills of his uncles Robert in 1729 and Richards in 1763.
      Not sure we have the right marriage and children. Only called his third son William, apparently. According to the MI he died aged 83, implies born circa 1719.
