  • 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.

  • Notes 
    • This Richard is one of a number of individuals in our Hardaker One-name Study for whom we have no confidently identified parentage. We have an approximate year of birth for him based on the 1841 census data and his burial record. While we know that he raised his family at Eccleshill, we do not know whether he was born in the area or moved into it from elsewhere because he died before the 1851 census when this information would have been recorded. Unfortunately his two marriage records do not provide us with his father's name, and offer no clues as to any close relatives. Within the West Yorkshire area we have a baptism record for a Richard Hardaker, son of John and Mary, baptised 27 Jul 1788 at Rawdon Chapel which other researchers may consider favourably for this Richard, but we have now matched this baptism to Richard #2811 who lived in the Woodhouse area with good confidence. This second Richard can also be found in the 1841 census records.

      If we guess that this Richard was born at Eccleshill, or grew up here from a young age, then the most likely candidates for his parents are William Hardaker #117 and wife Elizabeth née Brown. This couple moved to Eccleshill between 1785 and 1793, and could have had a son Richard who was not baptised (or for whom the record is missing) within that time period.
