Hartley DNA



Due to problems in finding a good paper trail among the many Hartleys of Trawden, Colne and the area, I have looked into Hartley DNA. I have tested my yDNA and my autosomal DNA or atDNA. There are many branches of Hartleys descending from many different families. My Hartley DNA line is called R1b. This is common in England and the NW of Europe. Below that, as can be seen in the L513 Chart, I am P312, L21, L513, S5668, Z16343, and finally Z17911. I share an area with Merrick and Thomas and am next door to Pillsbury and Hays/Hayes. This line could go back to the start of Surnames, so any Hartleys on this page along with a long line of their ancestors should be in the same Y Branch of Z17911.

Autosomal DNA testing takes up where the yDNA testing leaves off. It is usually considered to be good up to the 3rd or 4th cousin. However, some significant segments DNA may survive up to many generations longer. This is especially true where ancestors married cousins - such as happened often with many groups of people such as the Pilgrims. Along with testing my own autosomal DNA, I have also tested my father's cousin's atDNA and my mother's. By testing my mother's atDNA and mine, I can tell what part is left over of my father's atDNA in my test. This is a process called phasing. The DNA where my father's cousin and I match represents the common DNA we inherited from my great-grandparents James Hartley and Annie Louisa Snell. For me to find ancestors that don't include the Snells, I would have to test descendents of Mary Ann Hartley Burrows. Also matches that match me and my father's cousin (or other known relative) would share a common ancestor. This is a process called triangulation. With more people testing, there may be more discoveries on the earlier history of the Hartley family in England.



Introduction

At this point the first generation is a bit of speculation. There are too many Robert and James Hartleys in this part of the world to make a sure determination at this point. Here is a picture of the 16th Century baptismal font from St. Bartholomew's in Colne - where many Hartleys were baptized.


Generation One



1. JAMES1 HARTLEY married Betty Baldwin on 9 Jul 1801 at St. Bartholomew's, Colne.
He was a Weaver.
Children of James1 Hartley and Betty Baldwin were as follows:

Generation Two




2. ROBERT2 HARTLEY (James1) was born on 24 Feb 1803 at Trawden, Lancashire, England. He was baptized on 10 Apr 1803 at St. Bartholomew's Chapel, Colne, England. He married Barbara Heaton, daughter of John Heaton and Mary Sutcliffe, on 19 Oct 1828 at St. Bartholomew's Chapel, Colne, England. He married Mary Pilling, daughter of Greenwood Pilling and Nancy Shackleton, on 16 Sep 1830 at St. Bartholomew's Chapel, Colne, England. He died in 1835 at Hollin Hall, Trawden. He was buried on 6 Aug 1835 at Colne.
He was a Weaver.
There were no children of Robert2 Hartley and Barbara Heaton.
Children of Robert2 Hartley and Mary Pilling were as follows:

My theory is that Robert Hartley married Barbara Heaton on 19 October 1828 at St. Bartholomew's Chapelry in Colne. John Aldersley attended. James Ellis was likely a regular Chapel witness. An on-line search shows his name appearing at 1452 weddings! Barbara was born on 5 March 1802 and was baptized 2 months later in warmer weather on 5 May 1802. She was the daughter of John and Mary Heaton. Her father was a weaver and they lived in Wycoller. Barbara died in Wellhead which is near Winewall in the north central portion of Trawden. She was buried on 3 June 1829, before she reached her first wedding anniversary.

The widower Robert Hartley married Mary Pilling on 13 September 1830. He was a weaver and married a weaver's daughter. Unfortunately he died before seeing the birth of his second child and first daughter. Mary's father was Greenwood Pilling and her mother's name was Nancy Shackleton. John Scholefield and John Aldersay were the witnesses. This could be the same John Aldersley who attended Robert's first wedding. John Scholefield was the only one who signed his name.

Mary Pilling is an interesting person who outlived two husbands, cared for Pilling, Hartley and Wilkinson children and moved to the United States. Her first known son John was born at Slack Booth seen to the right and behind the girls in Figure 2 (See also under Pilling). When she was married to Robert Wilkinson, she lived in the building on the left foreground.

Figure 2 Hollin Hall and Slack Booth Farm, Trawden

Robert Hartley is the earliest Hartley which the author can trace with confidence. It is likely that Robert Hartley was born to James Hartley in Trawden but it would take much work to prove which was the right ancestor. To give an idea of the number of Hartleys in the area there were 5 marriages of James Hartleys in 1801 - 3 widowers and 2 weavers. The James above was a widower and a weaver when he married Betty Baldwin.

According to the Colne Parish Registers, where most of the baptisms of the surrounding areas would have occurred, there were four Roberts born between 1803 and 1804.[3] One Robert Hartley born in 1807 from the same portion of Trawden has been eliminated through contact of a descendant. [4] The local custom, when there were several of the same name, was to have nicknames to distinguish people. These names would include "little", "old", "young", or include the father's or mother's name (e.g. Jem o' Jake's) or a place name (e.g. Jack at Lumb Laith) or use some other distinguishing feature, John known as Hodeye ("Odd Eye"). Unfortunately, these names have not been passed down through the official records in most cases.

My best guess would be that Robert's father was James Hartley, a weaver, who married Betty Baldwin on 9 July 1801. These would have been the same two which gave birth to Robert in Trawden on 24 February 1803. Witnesses at their wedding were another James Hartley (father?) and John Hargraves.

Another possible link is found on a monumental inscription at the Colne Parish Cemetery from St. Bartholomew's, Row 4, No. 7:

Here

lieth the body of MARY

HARTLEY the wife of ROBERT HARTLEY of HOLLIN HALL who

departed this life June the 19th

in the 54th (?) year of her

age Anno Domini 1762.

Through contact with St. Bartholomew's Church, the Rector there suggested that this Robert and Mary may be ancestors of the Rochester Hartleys. Further, the Robert born in 1807 (mentioned above) which was eliminated as our ancestor does not have as a direct ancestor this Robert and Mary.

Generation Three




Greenwood Hartley and Wife Ann
Greenwood Hartley and Wife Ann
3. GREENWOOD3 HARTLEY (Robert2, James1) was born on 25 May 1831 at Trawden, Lancashire, England. He was baptized on 13 Nov 1831 at St. Bartholomew's Church, Colne, England. He married Ann Emmet, daughter of Isaac Emmet and Esther Howorth, on 18 Dec 1851 at Bacup Chapelry, Bacup, Lancashire, England. He died on 18 Aug 1892 at age 61. He died on 18 Sep 1892 at Rochester, MA, at age 61. He was buried at Sherman's Cemetery, Rochester.
He lived with Robert Wilkinson and Mary Pilling in 1841 at Hollin Hallrow, Trawden, Lancashire, England. He lived with Robert Wilkinson and Mary Pilling in 1851 at 183 Underbank Street, Bacup, Lancashire, England. He was a Powerloom weaver in 1851. He was a Baker in 1858. He lived between 1858 and 1869 at Higher Broadclough, Bacup, Lancashire, England. He and Ann Emmet appeared on the census of 1861 at Higher Broadclough, Bacup, Lancashire, England. He was a Powerloom weaver between 1861 and 1865. He and Ann Emmet immigrated on 24 Oct 1869 to Boston, MA. He lived between 1869 and 1870 at 7 Eighth Street, Fall River, MA. He lived between 1871 and 1874 at 23 Austin Street, New Bedford, MA. He declared intentions to be naturalized on 11 Dec 1872 at Bristol Superior Court, New Bedford, MA.
Children of Greenwood3 Hartley and Ann Emmet were as follows:

4. ANN3 HARTLEY (Robert2, James1) was baptized on 6 Dec 1835 at St. Bartholomew's Chapel, Colne, England. She married Elijah Cockrill, son of William Cockerell and Mary (--?--), on 26 Jun 1858 at Christ Church, Bacup, Lancashire, England. She died in Dec 1886.
She lived with Robert Wilkinson and Mary Pilling in 1841 at Hollin Hallrow, Trawden, Lancashire, England. She lived with Robert Wilkinson and Mary Pilling in 1851 at 183 Underbank Street, Bacup, Lancashire, England. She was a Weaver between 1858 and 1861. She lived with Elijah Cockrill in 1881 at Spotland Newline, Rochdale, Lancashire, England. She was a Weaver in 1881.
Children of Ann3 Hartley and Elijah Cockrill were as follows:

Greenwood Hartley was christened at the Chapelry of St. Bartholomew's in Colne. Trawden was under the Chapelry of Colne. This meant that if you belonged to the Anglican Church and lived in Trawden you had to go to Colne for church services. The only weddings which were recognized during that time were by Anglican, Quaker or Jewish houses of worship. During the year that Greenwood was born, there were 514 houses in Trawden and 2,853 inhabitants. Colne, where he was christened had 1,501 houses and a population of 8,080. It appears there was a bit of a population boom from 1811 to 1821 and by the time Greenwood was born, this boom was slowing down, From then on, there was quite a decline in population. It is likely that these shifts were due to changes in the textile trade.

Ann was born to Robert and Mary in Trawden and baptized on 6 December 1835. Robert did not live to see her birth as he died and was buried on 6 August 1835 according to the Colne Parish Registers. His place of residence was listed as Hollin Hall which is up the hill and southeast of the village of Trawden.

On 15 September 1839, two days after what would have been her 9th anniversary, Mary Pilling Hartley married Robert Wilkinson of Trawden. Robert was the son of Moses Wilkinson and himself a widower. Both Robert and Moses were weavers. Thomas Foulds and James Ellis were witnesses at the service at the Chapel of Colne. James was the only one signing his name.

Mary didn't have far to move or lived at the same address for the 1841 Census shows that they lived at Holling Hallrow in Trawden. The following were living in the house:

Figure 3 Hollin Hall Today

Jane 10  
Mary 6

Horsfall 2 months  
John Pilling 15 Cotton Weaver

Ann Hartley 6  

It looks like you were expected to be working by the time you were 14.

A review of the records for the area shows that Hartley was one of the most popular surnames in the Colne/Trawden area. Hartley was also one of the most popular given names. Horsfall and Greenwood were also surnames used as given names. The exact relationship between John and Mary Pilling are not known. Perhaps he was a nephew. More about him later. The family lived next to John Hartley and William Rushton on Hollin Hallrow. Two houses down lived John Aldersly, 65 and John Aldersly, 35, one of whom may have been witness to Robert Hartley's two marriages. In 1841, this area of the Trawden census included Lane House, Holling Hall, Primrose Hill and Wanless and had 88 inhabited houses with 524 people living there. The Wilkinson household would have been twice as crowded as others in the area.

The Hartleys in Bacup

Along with the family upheaval of the Hartleys and Wilkinsons, it was around this time that cotton factories became more prevalent. The effect was that they greatly lowered the price which one would get for hand weaving and put the hand weavers out of business. This could have precipitated the family's move to Bacup in search of work. The records show that many others from the Colne area did move to Bacup.

Figure 4 Irwell River

The Census taken early in 1851 shows that the Wilkinson family had moved to 183 Underbank Street in the Town of Bacup which is southwest of Trawden. Underbank Street was over the Irwell River. The photo in Figure 4 shows the Irwell Inn and the present color of the River. Bacup was known for deplorable sanitary conditions as a health report of around that time shows. This report, though, may have been instrumental in the building of a public bath house which still stands today. Greenwood was now 19 and Robert Wilkinson was 49. Robert, Greenwood and Ann (who was now 16 years old) were all occupied as power loom weavers at a nearby factory. Robert was listed as Greenwood and Ann's father-in-law as the term step father was not used at that time. All but the youngest were listed as being born in Colne - although Trawden would have been more accurate. Other people in Robert Wilkinson's household were:

Mary, 49, his wife, Born in Colne
Jane, 20, his daughter, Born in Colne
William, ll, his son, listed as a scholar, also born in Colne
Elizabeth, 10 M[onths], born in Whalley

On 18 December 1851 Greenwood and Ann Emmet were married. The marriage was by Banns as was his mother's and most all marriages. This meant that their marriage was announced on successive weeks in the Chapelry of Bacup. As Ann was also from Bacup there was no need to announce the marriage in another chapelry or parish. B. Tweddle officiated with Robert Bolton and Lawrence Bridges in attendance. Greenwood, Ann and Lawrence all signed their names with an "X" indicating their lack of formal education.

In the marriage certificate, Ann Emmet's father is listed as Isaac Emmet, a laborer. She was residing at Stubby Lee in Bacup at the time. According to local maps, Bacup does have a Stubby Lee section. Ann was listed as being of age and a spinster which was the designation for any woman not being previously married. Greenwood was listed as being underage, being at that time barely 20 and would have needed consent to marry. Perhaps that requirement was waived or he received consent from Robert Wilkinson.

Figure 5 Bacup Today

Figure 5 shows a map of Bacup. Underbank Street is to the right of the Red Road (Burnley Road) near the "P" in Bacup. The Irwell River runs to the right of the red road Stubbylee is at the bottom center of the map. Broadclough, is shown near the top of the map.

In 1861, the Greenwood Hartley Family lived in Higher Broadclough, about mile North of Underbank Street.  A clough is a narrow valley. In the house were:

Ann "Wife"   32   Bacup
Mary Ann "Dau" U 6 Scholar Bacup
Esther "Dau" U 3 Scholar Bacup

[M = Married; U = Unmarried]

From Bacup to New Bedford

In 1869 Greenwood and Ann with children, Greenwood's mother and his half brother and family sailed from Liverpool aboard the HMS Palmyra of Glasgow and arrived in Boston on October
24th. The ship weighed 1389 tons and carried a total of 489 passengers mostly from Ireland and
England.

Steve Bickerton of Liverpool writes:

"Most emigrants usually spent between one and ten days waiting for their ship in a Liverpool lodging house. In the mid-nineteenth century some of the emigrants passing through Liverpool were subjected to harassment and fraud by local confidence tricksters, who became known as 'runners'. Runners frequently snatched emigrants' luggage and would only return it if the emigrant paid a large fee. In the late 1840's and 1850's, lodging houses were often inhospitable, dirty and overcrowded.

From the 1860's the situation began to improve as steam started to replace sail on the Atlantic route. The steamship companies looked after the emigrants during their stay in Liverpool and their representatives them on their arrival in the city. The emigrants were taken to lodging houses which were frequently owned by the steamship companies, but delays still occurred and there continued to be complaints about treatment in Liverpool even in the early 2Oth century.

Until the early 1860's most emigrants left Liverpool on a sailing ship. The voyage to the USA and Canada took about 35 days and to Australia 10 to 17 weeks. Most emigrants traveled in the cheapest class of accommodation, known as the steerage. This was similar to a dormitory with bunks down the sides and tables in the centre. It was frequently overcrowded with poor ventilation. Emigrating in a sailing ship could be unpleasant, particularly during a storm; it was only better in degree in the early days of steamships! Seasickness was a particular problem on the stormy North Atlantic westbound voyage. Diseases such as cholera and typhus frequently reached epidemic proportion as infection spread through the confined decks. Scores of emigrants died on this account.

The 1855 Passenger Act helped to improve conditions, laying down minimum standards for rations, space and sanitation. By 1870 virtually all emigrants to the USA and Canada went by steamship and the voyage was consequently reduced to between 7 and 10 days."


The passenger list shows that the three families landed in Boston on 24 October 1869:
Passenger #      
250 Laborer William Wilkinson 29
251 Wife Jane Wilkinson 29
252 Child John Wilkinson 7
253 Child Robert Wilkinson 5
254 Child Mary Wilkinson 3
255 Infant Jane Wilkinson 6 months
256 Laborer Greenwood Hartley 38
257 Wife Ann Hartley 40
258/ Spinster Mary Ann Hartley 14
259 Child Esther Hartley 14
260 Child James Hartley 7
261 *Matron Mary Wilkinson 67

An asterisk by Mary's name indicated her poor health. She was listed as having very sore eyes and being infirm. Perhaps she did not fare well on the journey. Mary was to live a little more than 4 more years in the New World. She saw her last day on 23 March 1874 in New Bedford at the age of 72.

A Short Stay in Fall River

From Boston, the Hartleys and Wilkinsons moved to Fall River. This may come as a surprise to some who only know of the Hartleys as being from Rochester. Greenwood Hartley was listed as living on 7 Eighth Street in the 1870-71 City Directory. Eighth Street ran off of Bedford Street where the Wilkinsons lived. Eighth is a short street and the Union Mill is at the end of it. The Durphy Mills were between Ninth and Eleventh Streets. Greenwood and his older 2 children were listed as working in the cotton mills in 1870 - perhaps at one of the two mills just mentioned.

Greenwood’s family and mother were listed in the 1870 Census, but they are found with great difficulty. Greenwood’s surname was taken down as Harteliffe and his mother’s surname was listed as Wilkison. The census taker may have had trouble understanding their strong Lancashire accent and Trawden dialect.

The 1870 census gives some more information about the Hartley family in Fall River. Greenwood and Ann could not write but they could read. This is hard to imagine having learned to read and write at about the same time but was probably not uncommon at the time. The second fact is the census shows that Greenwood had personal wealth of $600 which was quite a lot of money for the time. For the 9 families on the census page, the total personal wealth was $1,000 and the next highest amount of personal wealth to Greenwood was $300. This seems to indicate that Greenwood and family was quite thrifty and hard working.

While the United States provided opportunities for the Wilkinsons and Hartleys it was also likely the reason they emigrated. The Civil War in the U.S. resulted in a cotton famine in England which resulted in a great amount of hardship. While many emigrated to the U.S., many more Britons emigrated to Canada or Australia which was under Great Britain's jurisdiction.
Figure 6 The Wamsutta Mill Area of New Bedford in 1871

I wonder how people learned of opportunities of work in Massachussetts. Perhaps they heard by word of mouth or there was some type of advertisements from Massachusetts to England for workers. Also one wonders how relatives between the countries communicated without being able to write. Did they use literate friends or relatives to get letters across? In addition to John Pilling coming to New Bedford before the others, there were Wilkinsons living in New Bedford (no known relation). There was also a mysterious James Hartley listed in the New Bedford Directory in 1849 as working in the Wamsutta Mills. Remember that Greenwood's Grandfather was named James Hartley. Was there any connection?

The New Bedford Years (1870-1879)

The Hartley's lived at the rear of 200 Ray Street in New Bedford probably as early as 1870 and soon after moved to 23 Austin Street. Ray Street was one street East of Purchase Street near the new Wamsutta Mills on the 1871 map (Figure 6). Although Austin Street is now in the middle of the City, at that time Austin Street was about a block away from the countryside. A map from 1876 shows a railroad track where Ray Street used to be. The houses they lived in were likely factory housing owned by the Wamsutta Mills. Those Mills were located near the present intersection of Routes 195 and 18. This was the Mill where John Pilling was an overseer.

Four deaths occurred for the Hartley, Wilkinson, and Pilling families while in New Bedford. 12 year old Esther died of typhoid fever on 30 October 1870. John and Robert Wilkinson were about 11 and 9 when they drowned on 21 January 1872. The matriarch died on 23 March 1874 at the house of her son Greenwood. John and Robert Wilkinson, Esther Hart1ey and Mary Pilling Hartley Wilkinson are buried in the Oak Grove Cemetery in New Bedford along with other relatives. Two years before the Hartleys moved to Rochester, John Pilling , believed to be Greenwood's older half brother, left his family with money belonging to the purchasing and dividing association of Wamsutta operatives.


Generation Four




Mary Ann Hartley in 1921
5. MARY ANN4 HARTLEY (Greenwood3, Robert2, James1) was born on 30 Apr 1855 at Bacup, Lancashire, England. She married Abel Burrows, son of Samuel Burrows and Nancy (--?--), on 10 Feb 1874 at New Bedford. She died on 24 May 1924 at Union Hospital, Fall River, at age 69. She was buried on 27 May 1924 at Oak Grove, Fall River.
She lived in 1880 at 118 Pleasant Street, Fall River, Massachusetts. As of between 1920 and 1921, Mary Ann Hartley lived at 57 Oak St., Fall River, MA. She was a Nurse between 1920 and 1924. As of 1924, Mary Ann Hartley lived at 15 North Eighth Street, Fall River, MA.

On 10 February 1874, a little over a month before Mary Wilkinson died, her grand daughter, Mary Ann Hartley married Abel Burrows. He had emigrated from Burnley which would have been familiar to the Hartleys as it was not far from Bacup and Trawden in Lancashire County. His parents were Samuel and Nancy Burrows. Abel was a weaver from Fall River but changed occupations to a clock maker, then a watch maker and a jeweler. An advertisement on the cover of the 1902 and 1903 Fall River Directory said, "Abel Burrows, Jewelry, Bicycles, Phonographs, 250 Pleasant St." Mary Ann was listed as a nurse after Abel's death in 1903. In 1921 she was living with Mrs. Esther M. Borden at 57 Oak Street. In 1923, she lived on the 2nd floor with Patrick Moran at 15 North Eighth Street.

Figure 7 - Fall River Directory Ad from 1882

Between 1920 and 1921, Mary Ann Hartley lived at 57 Oak St., Fall River, MA. She was a Nurse between 1920 and 1924., In 1924, Mary Ann Hartley lived at 15 North Eighth Street, Fall River, MA.

Children of Mary Ann4 Hartley and Abel Burrows were as follows:

FROM THE TEXTILE MILLS TO A SAWMILL

At any rate, the young Hartley family's stay in Fall River and New Bedford was a relatively short 5 years. 1874 was an eventful year for Greenwood. His mother died in March in New Bedford and he received his citizenship in November. Family tradition says that Greenwood's doctor advised a move to the country due to his health so he bought a farm formerly owned by Philip Crapo on December 14, 1874 on Snipatuit Road in Rochester. 9 years earlier 69 year old Philip Crapo was living in the house with his 40 year old dressmaker daughter Sarah H Crapo. [The Crapos at one time owned much of the land to the South and Southeast of Snipatuit pond. Greenwood's son James was to marry a Crapo descendent. This Philip would have been her distant relative.] So Greenwood was able to save up $1200 and change from a factory weaver to a farmer when he was 43 years old. The deed reads:

Know all men by these present that I Milburn O. Harding of New Bedford in the County of Bristol and State of Massachusetts in consideration of twelve hundred dollars paid by Greenwood Hartley the receipt whereof is hereby acknowledged do hereby give, grant, bargain, sell and convey unto the said Greenwood Hartley the homestead farm of the late Philip Crapo deceased which I purchased of Sarah H. Crapo and is bounded as follows viz.: on the South by the road leading out from North Rochester to Rochester Center - Westerly by the road aforesaid - Northerly by the river until you come to the meadow belonging to the heirs of Leonard Sherman - thence on a line of said meadow to the land of James G. B. Sherman - thence Easterly on said Sherman's line to a stake and stone - a corner of Thomas Sherman's land - thence to land of Abial P. Roberson - thence to Robinson's line to Snow's Pond - thence Southerly on the Pond and a line of land of Josiah Pierce and formerly owned by Charles M. Blackmer to the road to the first mentioned bounds containing fifty acres more or less reserving a right of way.

A few early mentions of the Hartleys come to us by way of letters to a young whaler from his mother. These were letters written to 19 year old Frank Rounseville by his mother in 1879.

September 7, 1879 - Arthur has been gathering grapes down by the mill today. He has nearly three bushels, which he will send by Hartley to the city.

October 8, 1879 - James Hartley has had an oyster supper at his house. They said it was excellent. Arthur escorted Hattie Sherman and Emma Bennett there and back. The young men are so scarce that eveyone has to take two girls.

I assume that the first Hartley is Greenwood, although that is not clear. The Hartleys apparently had regular dealings in New Bedford at the time. Perhaps they sold their farm produce there. Certainly, they still had relatives there.

The second entry seems to be a social party thrown by the Hartleys for James. Frank Rounseville was two years older than James, so it was likely that they knew each other. Frank would likely have attended if he was not whaling. Young James was not quite 18 at the time of this "excellent" oyster supper.

In 1880 Greenwood lived with his wife, 18 year old son James, who did farm work and his grand daughter Elizabeth A. Burrows (Mary Ann's daughter). James' 5 year old neice was apparently there on a visit to the country from Fall River. On 18 September 1892, Greenwood died of chronic gastritis. His age was given as 61 years, 3 months and 23 days. His wife Ann died 5 September 1906.


6. JAMES4 HARTLEY (Greenwood3, Robert2, James1) was born on 21 Jan 1862 at Higher Broadclough, Bacup, Lancashire, England. He married Annie Louisa Snell, daughter of Isaiah Hatch Snell and Hannah Thomas Bradford, on 30 Apr 1885 at Long Plain Baptist Church, Acushnet, MA. He died on 30 Jun 1918 at Rochester, MA, at age 56. He was buried at Sherman Cemetery, Rochester, MA.
He was a Farmer. He immigrated with Greenwood Hartley and Ann Emmet on 24 Oct 1869 at Boston, MA.
Children of James4 Hartley and Annie Louisa Snell all born at Rochester were as follows:
Figure 8 The Annie and James Hartley with children around 1900 in Rochester

The community of Rochester was one of farmers. A blacksmith lived near the Greenwood Hartley farm. James' future wife, Annie Snell also lived at a nearby farm. She was 13 in 1880 and attending school. She was one of nine children of Isaiah and Hannah Snell ranging between 1 and 19 years of age. The couple were to have another child for a total of 10.

On 30 April 1885, 23 year old James Hartley married Rochester-born Annie Louisa Snell who was 18. James' occupation was listed as a farmer. Pastor Wilson was the presiding pastor at the Baptist Church at Long Plain in Acushnet. Annie was to bear 15 children over a period of 25 years.

James seems to have kept up connections with New Bedford and sold lumber and other commodities and ran a mill on Rochester Avenue (now Hartley Road). He bought his first property in 1888 when he was about 26. He purchased some land from Eudora West for $50 land "... lying on the Northerly side of the highway leading from Long Plain to Waterman School House and West of the West Mill (so called)." He was to make 25 purchases from 1888 to 1906 mostly in Rochester. One purchase of interest was from Isaiah H. Snell (his father-in-law) in 1893 and appears to include land along Snow's Pond.

The 1903 Rochester Directory lists James under Box board Manufacturers. There were 7 other box board manufacturers in Rochester. By 1909 he had a full page advertisement in the Directory. His son James and other children worked in the business. Daniel was the Superintendent of the mill in 1909. The business had a telephone number in North Rochester at the time and a P.O. address in Marion. That same directory lists the business at Rochester Ave. but the advertisement lists the mill at Hartley Road.

Annie gave birth to her first child at age 19. He was named Daniel Emmet Hartley, Emmet being his grandmother's maiden name. Herbert died an infant. James was born after Grace May on 14 February 1891. The 5th child Hannah Ellen "Aunt Nell" was named for Annie's sister Hannah Ellen Snell who died of consumption 4 years before. Margaret Esther was the 12th child. Her middle name may have come from her aunt Esther [Hartley]. The 15th child Robert may have been named after his great grandfather.

The descendants of Annie Lousa and James Hartley have been compiled by Judith J. Gurney in 1978. James died of cancer 30 June 1918 at the age of 56. Annie died after breaking her hip in a fall 31 May 1961. Her ancestry is traced in later sections.


Generation Five




7. ELIZABETH A.5 BURROWS (Mary4 Hartley, Greenwood3, Robert2, James1) was born on 18 Dec 1874 at Fall River, MA. She married John Williams, son of William M Williams and Ann Caton, on 4 Mar 1897 at Fall River, MA.
