 Hartleys of Eskdale

(very definitely incomplete!)

At the time of the Percy Survey of 1587 there were at least seven Hartley families in Eskdale:-

Nicholas Hartley (of Peel Place)
Gilbert Hartley of Boot
Richard Hartley and his son Nicholas of Boot
William Hartley of Borrowdale Place
John Hartley (of Church House?)
John Hartley of Bank House
Nicholas Hartley of Langrigg Green

 

How closely these Hartleys were related is unknown. Tracing the descendants of them is obviously prone to error. 'Obvious' conclusions can often turn out incorrect. Wills have given many of the most reliable relationships with the parish register of St Catherine at Eskdale providing baptismal and marriage dates.

I hope to get more information in due course from manorial records.

I have not attempted to follow the Hartley descent beyond about the middle of the eighteenth century.

I would like to acknowledge the immense help that I have obtained from Neville Ramsden's indices to the parish registers and to Copeland wills. The latter is available from the Cumbria Family History Society; the former can be consulted at Whitehaven Record Office.
