    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 Joseph Hardaker Cooper of Bramley
    One of a number of Hardaker families from the West Yorkshire area that we have not yet been able to connect to Roger Hardaker (#4, born early 1600).

    It is evident that Joseph was a man of property – in 1741 a Joseph Hardacre [sic] of Bramley was recorded as the owner of freehold property at Bramley. He died in 1760 and was buried at Bramley St Peter on 28 May. In his will he leaves his ‘loving wife Esther’ a close of land and a house and contents for her life.

    We have record of baptisms of two Joseph Hardakers just two months apart in 1702. This paper attempts to match these two individuals to later marriages and resulting children.

  • Notes 
    • The archives contain a record of the transfer in March 1739 from Richard Richardson of Northbyerley esq. to Thomas Rowland of Yeadon, drover of a messuage and closes of land called Long close. Upper close, the Clover close, the Grandsire close, Foredoor close, the Brow, the Low Ing and the Upper Ing, containing 11 acres, and occupied by Joseph Hardaker and Elizabeth Pratt.
    • We have been able to determine the ancestry of this person. The only clue we have is that he had a brother named William (mentioned in his will). A John Hardaker is named as a witness to the will, but it is unclear what relationship existed between Joseph and this John.
    • They may have had a daughter Hannah born c. 1748 who died at Bramley in 1774, said to be 26, daughter of Joseph. I could find no birth record.
