  • 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 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 his father Joshua's will (1711/12) and in the will of his brother-in-law Robert (1729). For some years he was tenant at what was called Pearson of Horton Farm, or Horton House Farm, Eccleshill.
