Taking a trip to NY in two weeks to retrace some of my Hartwell Ancestral homes. We have 1000's of pictures, some older than 100 years, of their stomping grounds. I made a FB page dedicated to our trip/stops along the way. I am providing a nicely worded letter explaining who jumped out and took a bunch of photos before running off to the next stop. I bought a nice DSLR and a drone to capture what the homes/locations look like today compared to then. In that letter is a link to my FB page, in hopes they will appreciate the time I took to share, but also, perhaps chime in with their own stories. https://www.facebook.com/NYFamilyHistoryTrip/

Our Canadian Cousins can be congratulated on their 150 year Anniversary

This isn't a Notable Canadian Hartwell Woman - but notable all the same.

Pat Lochridge Hartwell 1916- 1998 – Was noted for being a War Correspondent for CBS , a Newspaper owner and a UNICEF official – Attached is a telegram she sent to entertainer Danny Kaye https://www.loc.gov/resource/ihas.200196544.0?st=gallery

Born in Texas she ended her days in Hawaii, but also achieved a certain amount of notoriety by having acquired artwork previously owned by Adolf Hitler. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1546954/Wartime-Cupid-that-has-the-power-to-sting.html

I found this while cleaning out my mother's house. It may be bronze... not sure. It probably weighs 3 or 4 pounds and measures 6" x 8", and the initials "R.W.H." are stamped in the lower right corner. I would be interested in selling it, but I have no clue what it's worth. I will see if I can get it appraised.

Screech Owl Gallop ? – The Civil War had quite a prolific Confererate composer / bandsman/ soldier in the shape of William H Hartwell – you can read about him here http://www.newworldrecords.org/liner_notes/80608.pdf

I'm not sure where he fits into the family records, but other William H Hartwells are referred to living then in MA, ME, IL and WI . Search on Spotify or Youtube and you'll find examples of his work – e.g for the The 26th NC Regiment Band from Salem NC

Houston TX had a Hartwell Iron Works for many years and there are relics of this lying around in that part of the world - Rev. Arthur Edward Hartwell (1886-1969) was the manager (from a Littleton MA family) - but he married a Clare Hartwell 1891-1981 from Baltimore, - her father was Dr. Edward Mussey Hartwell (1850-1922) who taught and wrote extensively on Physical Education at John Hopkins Uni.

I mean no discredit to Joy Peach and her excellent genealogical work in ANY way, but I'd like to remind everyone that "The Hartwells of America: A Genealogy of All the Hartwell Families of the United States and Canada", published in 1956, was written by my father, John F. Hartwell. Any subsequent Hartwell genealogies are based upon that book. In addition, he was one of the original members of the Hartwells of America association that was founded in 1937. The Hartwells of America website says, "In 1958 (sic), John F. Hartwell published what has been up until recently perhaps the best known Hartwell genealogy, 'The Hartwells of America', with a supplement also (sic) printed in 1958. Although John F. Hartwell’s book has some serious errors, it was still a tremendous effort for the time and has greatly increased awareness of our family genealogy." We need to remember that in those days there was no Internet, and phone calls were pricey. My father's research took nearly 20 years of letter writing, reliance on and verification of the information in Lyman Willard Densmore's 1887 and 1895 books, and many hours of trooping through "marble orchards" looking at tombstones! My mother and I joined him in some of these expeditions! I am very proud of my father's efforts, and proud to be a Hartwell, as was he!

OK - you may not have heard of 2 different Abraham Hartwells in the 1550-1600 period . The older one spent a lot of time writing Latin verse in praise of Queen Elizabeth (the first one). Abraham the younger translated lots of travel books - including one with the first pictorial image of a Zebra http://www.historyofparliamentonline.org/volume/1558-1603/member/hartwell-abraham-1553-1606 . It's not at all clear which family line they followed.

I received my Hartwell book yesterday in the mail! I am looking forward to opening it up and reading it. Yes. I have to take the wrapping off first!

Interesting. The name of the book on the spine is written like it is in Germany, going down the spine, rather that in smaller print at the top like in the USA. (I used to live in Germany, so I have always noticed the difference). I am wondering if it was printed in Germany. Many things are.
(I used to be able to walk to the Frankfurt Book Fair every year from where I lived. It was so awesome. Publishers from around the world would attend. I met David Hartwell (the author who was also w Tor Books, not my first cousin David.) back when we were both in the publishing business in the early 80s. He came to LA for something and I met him. I believe that he represented Tor at the Frankfurt Book Fair a few times. )

Well it's a bit late for St Patrick's Day- but a Notable Hartwell Lady was the inspiration for a jolly little tune "Lady Hartwell of Cantwell" or "Lady Hartwell of Cantwell's Clog" - or otherwise Thomond Bridge- a bridge in the centre of Limerick. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMoLkjPIu60&ab_channel=concertinette Which Lady Hartwell it was is not clear , but two Hartwells were Mayors of Limerick.

Notable Hartwell Women :
Rachel Hartwell (1868-1905) was born in Watertown, Massachusetts, USA and attended Wellesley College. She graduated in 1891. While taking classes at Harvard in the summer of 1892, she met her future husband, George Pfeiffer. They were married 28 December 1896 and travelled extensively across Europe collecting ancient artefacts. She died on 28 January 1905 in childbirth, leaving behind the couple’s only child, Hilda. She was 37 years of age. The Hartwell-Pfeiffer collection is stored care of Harvard University and other places in Massachussets.
Here's her wedding dress however

Can anyone tell me more details about the Hartwell genealogy book available on the site? My father owned a copy of a book in the 70's which included my siblings who were born in the 40's and 50's, but did not include generations beyond that. I exchanged emails with Joy Peach several years ago telling her what I knew about my own family line, and wonder if this new book would include info like that. Thanks!

My cousin Kathy Hartwell Hromadka announced today that the Hartwell Farm in McClelland, Iowa, USA, has been sold. It has been in our family since 1846. My mother was born on that farm. My Grandfather was, too. So was my Great Grandfather. Maybe my great great grandfather, too.

Kathy and I are both 13th generation, to give you perspective as who and where we are from William and Jazan Hartwell.
McClelland, Iowa, is in the SW corner of the state about 16 miles or so east of the Omaha Council Bluffs area.

I will always think of it as the Hartwell Farm.

Those of you who are used to the tales of Dick Whittington and his cat turning to go back to become Lord Mayor of London, might not know that there is a Hartwell link – for while Richard Whittington served as Mayor, one of his tasks was to oversee the issuing and collection of loans. So there are several records of one merchant John Hartwell between 1415-1422 lending and borrowing. http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C9534248 http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C9533953

Cranfield -Bedfordshire
Well it seems that I was wrong about historical Hartwells in Cranfield. It seems that one Richard Hartwell, a Quaker, who died in 1739, built a set of thatched almshouses which still stand, and endowed their upkeep via Hartwell Farm, just down the road in central Cranfield. The story is in the following link http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/rd/fe298f47-57c4-49ad-9aa6-0c541904fd0e, and a photo or two are on the internet. http://theparishmatters.blogspot.co.uk/2013/11/hartwell-almshouses.html
Given the general tendency of dissenters to leave for the American colonies, perhaps there was a link between Massachussets and Joshua Hartwell – Richard's father

Haunted Hartwells –
There doesn't seem to be much out there – apart from Hartwell Hall at Brockport University NY http://www.rochesterfirst.com/news/local-news/is-the-college-at-brockports-hartwell-hall-haunted.
Hartwell Hall is named after Ernest Clark Hartwell (1883-1965) – an academic with roots in Groton MA who also appears to have had a street named after him in Buffalo NY. I haven't found out who is responsible for the other 7 Hartwell Streets in the USA, 2 in Australia, 3 In the UK.

I guess it's no surprise with places called Hartwell that the roads going there carry the name.

I know this isn't the best place to show off artistic hobbies, but I am a descendant of Hartwell's, I have shared my restored photos projects with this group before. I thought I would also share some of my artwork with the group. Feel free to browse, like, share at will. Or ignore it, as it has nothing directly to do with Hartwell's 🙂

This is my first post to this site. My grandfather, Ira Hartwell, was from Lowell Massachusetts. I don't have much if any history, I would like to find out more and how I fit into the Hartwell family. I do have some limited information. But my Grandfather would not discuss, other then "the Haves" and "Have nots" I could use some guidance.

Wood Cutting
Well,a name like Alonzo Hartwell (1805-1873) does stand out – but I didn't know that he could be linked back to Hartwell Farm & Paul Revere. It's on record that in 1838 he too did a woodcut engraving of the Boston Massacre pictured by Paul Revere. http://www.masshist.org/features/massacre/visual . Another Woodcutter is Hartwell Yeargans – although I don't know where he fits into the tree. http://www.artoftheprint.com/artistpages/yeargans_hartwell_music_makers.htm

Looking for help and info if anyone knows about this man. This picture is not great and did not scan well, but has been in our family "archives" forever. The only id was something my sister wrote when she was going through old pics with mom. It says Gale Hartwell, Lena Scott's cousin. Lena Bill Scott was our grandmother, daughter of Ellen May Hartwell Bill. Ellen May was the daughter of George Hartwell and Mary I (?) Dow. They lived in both MA and NH. I do know that mom and our great aunt referred to some people in Manchester, NH as "cousins", possibly through Mary Dow. I have talked to my nephew about the pic and he feel.s it is WW1 or shortly after, probably 26th Yankee Division, Infantry (probably activated from the NH or MA Guards) Under the crossed rifles is says "HQ" and the drumstick showing below the fourth button may have indicated he was a musician or drummer. I cannot find a Gale Hartwell. I have found a Gale Hartwell French, but nothing for certain. Any thoughts, or does anyone know of a Gale Hartwell that would have served around WW!.

Hartwells and Gunsmiths

Sergeant Samuel Hartwell of Hartwell Farm MA was apparently a gunsmith back in 1775. But is there a genetic predisposition to that trade ? John Hartwell Cocke was paid £100 as an armourer some three years later. George W Hartwell apparently made or was an official inspector of Colt revolvers in 1846-51 (unless it was C W Hartwell ) http://www.gunauction.com/buy/7341735

Over in the UK, British parliamentary accounts list a Thomas Hartwell as an Armourer in 1780 in addition to his work as Clerk of Works and a Proof-master – even making guns for the trade to Red Indians in 1753! https://kclpure.kcl.ac.uk/portal/files/2934113/287105.pdf. He handled tens of thousands of arms for the Board of Ordnance. Joseph (his father ?) also was a gun-smith, and there also seems to have been a Benjamin and a Robert in the trade around this time. (+ another John supplied the Hudson Bay Company 1684-1691)

Joseph Thomas Hartwell from Ebrington 1880-1961 more recently made sporting guns in Mayfair, London in 1920-30 https://www.bonhams.com/auctions/20804/lot/103/
(I couldn't find any Irish records apart from 1732 when another Thomas leased some land from the daughter of a gunsmith in Dublin.)

or Frank Eugene Hartwell (from the Ohio branch 1873-1961) worked for the US Weather Bureau and wrote about Snowflakes http://www.history.noaa.gov/stories_tales/snowflakeman.html , nor the foundation of the British Science of Weather Forecasting at Hartwell House in 1850 http://www.rmets.org/sites/default/files/metsocearlymembers.pdf - nor for that matter the work done to establish Longitude there five years earlier.

Hartwells on the right track ?

Well there is a Hartwell Railroad in Georgia - running from Hartwell GA , but nobody called Hartwell has anything to do with it.
http://railga.com/hart.html
And a Hartwell Station in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, again named after a district, but not a person as such.

Hartwell House in Buckinghamshire, UK may shortly get a High Speed rail track to run through it
http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/danielhannan/100135020/hs2-unaffordable-unecological-and-unwanted/
But the only Hartwell rail halt (1910-11) I have found to be named after a person in the Hartwell genealogy - Mr J W Hartwell (1820-1880), is now a ghost town in Plumas County CA

I took these pictures last summer when I was at Burton-on-water in the Cotswolds of England. Its nickname is "Venice of the Cotswolds" & is a pretty village. I went in the store, in Oklahoma, we would call it a hardware store. The current owners are not Hartwells, they didn't know much about the original owners, but thought the son might have died during the war and they didn't have anyone to pass it onto, so they sold out. The current family has kept the name & mosaic at the front door. I was unable to visit Hartwell House, NW of London or Kent, England, where it's thought the Hartwells of America originated, but did thoroughly enjoy my time in England regardless.

Wanted - Hartwell males to join the Hartwell Y-DNA Surname Study Project

William Hartwell, the English immigrant ancestor of thousands of Hartwells in America, settled in Concord, Massachusetts, in the year 1636. While many of us with the surname Hartwell cannot yet definitively trace our ancestry back to William using traditional genealogical methods, Y-DNA testing has provided a way for us to help us find out how we are related to each other. The Hartwell Family DNA project was recently launched with this goal in mind. All men with the Hartwell surname are invited to participate, and all women with Hartwell ancestry are encouraged to prod their Hartwell men to participate.

The test to take is Y-DNA 37 (or 67 if possible) from FamilyTreeDNA. The results have already worked, as I have already found a Hartwell cousin using a Y-DNA match in the FTDNA database. Let’s combine forces to find out more about our Hartwell ancestors. The more Hartwells that take the test and upload their results and family trees, the more we will collectively know about our ancestry.

The steps to take are:
1. Purchase the Y-DNA-37 or 67 test from http://FamilyTreeDNA.com
2. Upload a Gedcom file containing your known Hartwell paternal ancestry
3. Join the Hartwell Y-DNA Surname Study Project
4. Learn more about Y-DNA testing and its potential at http://www.isogg.org/wiki/Y_chromosome_DNA_tests

Barons and Baronets

Here are some links to the weird world of titled Hartwells
The most recent Baron Hartwell wasn't born a Hartwell, but he was given a life peerage - roughly the same as an elected US senator
So his sons don't inherit that title https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Berry,_Baron_Hartwell

Before you get too disappointed, there has also been a hereditary baronetcy since 1805 - the Hartwells of Dale Hall
