    • It was an early assumption that John had married an Annie since a person of this name was buried at Guiseley on 5 May 1667, recorded as the wife of John. No marriage to an Annie has been found. The marriage to Anges Mitchell looks plausible, given that John had interests in Birstall, in Bradford parish. If that is so, perhaps Agnes was also known as Annie. Probably we shall never know for sure but I have decided to assume that Agnes and Annie were the same person. Otherwise the coincidence of the timing of the marriage is too unlikely.

    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.

  • Notes 
    • Mentioned in the wills of his grandfather Roger (1667) and of his uncle Richard (1708). He was still living at Yeadon in 1713 when his wife, recorded as Susannah, was buried.
