    I need to find my old records but I also have HARDISTY (sometimes HARDESTY) in my tree. Looks as though they could be the same family.

    Hi

    all the Hardisty are related, they came from five family in Killinghall & Hampswaithe, before that they came from Fewston.

    traced through wills and land, tax i have got them back to 1400s. there was only two churches in Killinghall & Hampswaithe, area St. Thomas A Becket Church, Hampsthwaite or All Saints Church, Ripley Yorkshire.

    just had another look at my tree and found even earlier ones. John who died in Fewston 27th Dec 1616 and his wife Dorothy. Also their son John 1584 - 1627
    You obviously have researched them more diligently then I have but it's good to find a connection to another cousin no matter how many times removed.

    Hello Paul

    Are you able to tell me where you found out that Capt. Francis Steel served under the Marquess of Newcastle?

    I have an ancestor, John Wood of Bramley near Leeds, who died in 1643 and may have similarly served, but I am stuck!

    Regards

    Peter Wood

    Default Hardisty

    Another Hardisty descendant here, though not sure how you managed to trace back as far as you have. I have managed to get back to a family in Terrington and pulled up some Church records of baptisms there from a Thomas Hardisty. Any hints on where to look to further back?

    Regards,
