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!

Deborah L. Hartwell I traveled to Boston when I was in college studying genealogy and found your father's book. What a treasure trove! I bought the last copy in a rare bookstore after discovering it at Boston's genealogical library. Joy has done a wonderful job of updating and correcting some errors through the 5th generation. My father was also a Hartwell family enthusiast and told many stories about my direct line of descent. Both books are invaluable.
Kay O'Donnell Cook Alice, thank you for reminding us all of your father's wonderful contributions to the Hartwell family genealogy. Today with the internet we can easily forget how much work and expense went into the research of people like your father and Lyman Densmore. My husband and I are the proud archivists of an original letter written to our ancestral Hartwell grandfather from Densmore and can certainly appreciate the many years of research it took to write these letters and compile the Densmore and John Hartwell books.
Weston Hartwell I agree Alice,we owe your father a debt of gratitude.I also like how the book is laid out,and what fantastic photographs! It would be nice if future genealogies included some of them.
Paul Hartwell I fully understand how difficult it is to write the first book on anything. With no written sources all information must be dug out one fact at a time, and it is easy to miss a few things buried in history.
Carol C. Hartwell We had a copy of this book, which I cannot find. It went further than 5 generations and I would like to have another copy. Are there any, anywhere, that I could buy, along with the 1958 supplement?
Kenn Shank Where can I get a copy of the latest edition?
Karen Proctor Stone Your father's book has been very valuable to me in my research I am lucky to have a copy of it. Very grateful for his efforts to preserve our Hartwell history
Peggy Brostmeyer Allen Is this book still available?
Claudia Hartwell Fleming Hello Alice, I'm new here, my sisters name was Alice L. Hartwell imagine the strange feeling when I saw you shared the same middle initial

If anyone is interested, the annual reunion is coming up! Saturday, June 25, in Concord, MA. Please take some time to check out the website, peruse the newsletter, and consider joining us and talking Hartwell history!!

Diane Mazurek One of these years...!
Alice L. Hartwell I attended all of them from the age of six months until my late teens/early 20's. At 22 I moved to CA and since then have not found myself in New England at the times of the reunions. I have good intentions, though! Maybe next year!
Melissa Hartwell My great grandpa Walter c. Hartwell was born in Arlington Massachusetts I 1870
Judith Duffy Some day!
Kathy Hromadka It is on my bucket list! 🙂
Ernie Hudson UE I got my copy of the Hartwell newsletter here in Canada today. Interesting. Must mean the 0n=line edition is avaiable. Start to make plans for the 80th edition of the Reunion Sat, June 24, 2017.
Neil Hartwell I've just read the Newsletter and seen that the US Hartwells may have originated in Bedfordshire after all - but having spent time in both Cranfield and Leighton Buzzard in my past I don't have much to report - there is a Hartwell Realtor office, but no other relics. But there are other Hartwell families in Bedfordshire, so perhaps links are possible. Thanks to Joy for all this work and Good Luck with the Annual Meeting.
Ernie Hudson UE wonndering if anyone attended the reunion/meeting in Mass? and has photos to post here??
Melissa Hartwell My family is from there
Pam Hartwell I'm in California too! I hope to attend our Hartwell reunion next year! Sending heartfelt hugs to all you Hartwell's!
Jackie Dunaway This will be my first time to come to a reunion. Do I need to register or anything?
Alice L. Hartwell Kevin Tighe, Melissa Hartwell, Judith Duffy, Pam Hartwell - maybe we should organize a mini-Hartwell reunion here in CA. I'm sure there are more Hartwells out here who live in CA. Hopefully they will chime in...
Pam Hartwell Sounds great. I'm in northern CA in the Sacramento area! Where's everyone else from in CA!
Alice L. Hartwell I'm in L.A. and so is Kevin Tighe.
Debbie Hartwell Kruger I am in Rancho Mirage, CA
Kathy Brostmeyer West My sister Peggy Brostmeyer Allen is in Palm Desert, some of us from Illinois could come visit her and attend!
Peggy Brostmeyer Allen Please keep us informed if there is a California Hartwell Reunion. I'm a Palm Desert part-timer when Oregon gets too rainy. I had no idea there were so many Hartwells in the state! Kathy Brostmeyer West and I have been working on our genealogy and Alice L Alice L. Hartwell's dads book could help us?
Alice L. Hartwell Joy Peach and/or Wayne Hartwell ought to have addresses for the CA people.

Kathy Hromadka An engineering marvel!
Kevin Tighe Ahh, the William Hartwell house from 1636. Nice. They had to make all of those bricks for the multi-chimney. That's why they just had one instead of several, and had 4 fireplaces on each floor. Neat. I always liked the poem that was above the door before going outside: He who loves an old house Will never love in vain For how can any old house Used to sun and rain To lilac and to larkspur And arching boughs above Fail to give its answer To the heart that gives its love. The park calls it the Samuel Hartwell house because he was there during the Revolution. But William built it 140 years before. My mom went to it in September 1973. It had burned down a couple years before. It had been wired for electricity around 1900 or 1910 or so. The insulation on the wires caught fire and burned the house down. When they found out her maiden name was Hartwell they asked if she would donate to help rebuild it. I kind of like how they put up a roof and the outline of the walls instead to show off the multiple fireplace chimney.
Mary An Love Was just there in September!

Kathy Hromadka Found this very interesting! John Hartwell 1640--1702, was a son of William Hartwell and Jazan. William came from England, on a boat. I would have to look at my Hartwell's of America book....but if I remember correctly they had at least 2 sons.......John and Samual.
Kevin Tighe this was great, thanks, Alita. I also have the list of names from Simon on down...1066 to 1630s coming to Massachusetts. my mom always kept that listing in a special drawer in the secretary in the living room. hers was hand written, but i have one printed up.

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. )

Pam Hartwell Oh boy I should be recovering mine too! Can't wait!
Kevin Tighe It was published in the USA. Interesting that the spine is German style. (I could always tell my German books from my American books on my shelves by the titles on the spine. And to locate them I would twist my head from side to side when they were intermixed!
Cat Hartwell I want one! Where can I find cousin???
Neil Hartwell There's a German writer - Katharina Hartwell who has written many books - I wonder which way round she has her spine notes printed ?
Richard Green Hartwell Karen do you have this book?

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. Our friend Maurice has done a lot of work on this branch. http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~spearin/tradgen/earlylimerick.html

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

Pam Hartwell Thank you for sharing this!
Kathy Hromadka Beautiful! Thanks for sharing!
Neil Hartwell BTW Her family descends from Deacon Josiah Hartwell 1717-1791 of Littleton MA

Let me try this again... The inside says " Gift from my daughter Carla Joe Fisher on my birthday Sept 17, 1967". I am tickled pink to find this. My genealogy research has William Hartwell born in England in 1613 and died in Massachusetts in 1690. He was my 9th Great Grandfather.

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!

Deborah L. Hartwell If you are referring to the book by Joy Peach it only has the first 5 generations. The book contains corrections to the earlier book.
Lane Hartwell Thanks for the info. I sent Joy a note. My dad and his first wife and those kids are listed in it, but my brother, mother and I were not because we came along in the 60's. Perhaps she added us. 🙂
Ernie Hudson UE why not give Joy peach another e-mail??Hopefully you a memeber of the Hartwell family Assoc. They have an annual newsletter ,etc.
Kay O'Donnell Cook We also have some pages from the Hartwell genealogy by Densmore and have updated Joy Peach with our current I generations. We also have an original letter written to our ancestral grandfather from Lyman Densmore requesting information about our line, but I don't think Ms. Peach included it in her book, but did make some corrections I suggested.
Karen Megerle Maybe someone should extend the Hartwell Family Tree on line with the next generations and corrections. I have no idea how Joy Peach was able to make sense of all that information but she's good.
Karen Megerle If you have someone you'd like me to look up I have my copy when it was " hot off the presses."
Patricia Millwee Hudson The newer book does not have the younger generations in it.
Karen Samuels Hartwell men should take the DNA test offered through HOA. With the results, we can jump the pond to definitively find our UK ancestors. Richard Green Hartwell I have your test for you.

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.

Please see Kathy Hromadka's posting below.

Chester Hartwell Attachment unavailable.
Kevin Tighe Here is the Hartwell farmhouse that was built in 1905 when my grandfather was 13. My mom was born in this house in 1922. Kathy and her brothers and sisters grew up in this house. The house, I believe, was not sold. Just the fields. A cousin of mine and his family live in that house still.
Chester Hartwell
Ellen Chase Arnold Always tough when you have to do that. When I sold my mom's house I was ending the chapter of a 100 years of her family in my hometown.
Cat Hartwell Kevin Tighe who from our line of Hartwell stayed at the house? Grandma Pepper?
Kevin Tighe Cat Hartwell, here is some background on dates, names, etc. Reuben Carlos Hartwell was born 4 Dec 1866 and died on 5 Jan 1921, both in Pottawattamie County, Iowa.

Simon's dad was John Hartwell, Concord, 1691 - 1780. He was married to Mary Parlin , 1692 - 1774. John's dad was Ebenezer Hartwell. Concord, 1666 - 1724/5. Married to Sarah Smedley. Ebenezer's dad was John Hartwell, Concord, 1641 - 1703. Married to Priscilla Wright, 1642 - 1681. John's dad was William Hartwell. Born around 1613 in England. Died 12 March 1690. Married to Jazan, born around 1608 and died 5 Aug 1695. This is the condensed version. But it is pretty good for following the timeline going back. I would not have been able to put all these names and dates together like this w/o the many pages (at least 150, maybe more) that John F. Hartwell, our cousin in Omaha, sent me back in 1989 or 1990 or so. I also have the line of descent from 1066 with Simon Hartwell de Wold to 1613 with William listed on it. Probably our William. It says son of Robt and Elizabeth. My mom always had the handwritten (or a handwritten) version of that in a door or drawer of the secretary in our homes. I have that secretary now, but I don't think the list is still in it. I should check some of the 'secret' panels. Cat and Michelle and Alita, not sure if you had this list of names. If not, it is good that you do now.

Quail's Breath Inn ? According to the advertisers there was such an Inn run by a Benjamin Hartwell - somewhere in Virginia ? Near Chesdin Lake perhaps http://www.tobaccoreviews.com/blend/31/benjamin-hartwell-signature-blend . I can find a possible Benjamin "Poppy" Hartwell 1856-1952 from Franklin VA - or is it all a lot of hot air ?

Kevin Tighe hmm, one of the sons of William and Jazan Hartwell was named Benjamin. 1662 - 1733. Born in Concord, MA. They did have the Hartwell Tavern there. They made their own beer out of apples from the orchard. Could it be him? Did he move to VA? Interesting.

Dick Whittington – Mayor of London
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

Anyone taken Ancestry DNA test?

I have Hartwell matches so it works.

Was able to use Joy Peach's book to help some others to complete their Hartwell lines. (What a great book!)

Karen Proctor Stone My dad has. His great grandmother Eunice Elsie Hartwell (1849-1909) wife of John Proctor daughter of Elhanon Hartwell and Mary A Fairbanks
Steve Hartwell I am using Y-DNA to try to help break through a Hartwell brick wall of mine. See http://hartwell.org/hartwell-y-dna-project/. Am appealing to those with surname Hartwell to take the Y-DNA test and join my project.
Karen Megerle I have 29 matches that have Hartwell ancestors. About half we have identified the common ancestor. John Hartwell and Sarah SHEPARD Ebenezer Hartwell, Hannah Bangs William Hartwell, Jazan
Steve Hartwell Excellent! I have also taken the Ancestry DNA test, but am still waiting for a Hartwell match (Massachusetts area) that might be my line
Karen Megerle I assume that everyone here knows the Hartwell Family association? Joy Peach is wonderful resource.
Steve Hartwell I'll second that!

Hartwell in the "news"

Claudia Hartwell Sundman I'm interested in our African American cousins... when I was a high schooler living in Southampton, NY in the 1970's, I was aware of a William Hartwell either in Southampton or one of the nearby "Hamptons" who was black. I sort of assumed his family had taken the Hartwell name from their slave owner (as many enslaved people did). Of course, I am now aware that many of those slave owners were raping their enslaved African women! What percentage of the decedents of William Hartwell (prime) have African heritage? Does anyone know?

Alice L. Hartwell When I was in 7th grade I won an essay contest put on by the DAR. It was about Teddy Roosevelt, and I won $25! I know I asked my mother about joining, but as she was the daughter of French and Swiss immigrants, I guess she didn't qualify!

Diane Mazurek I would assume all Hartwells would qualify, based on lineage.
Ellen Chase Arnold I have considered it since I have multiple lines the make me eligible. I am helping my nephew with his SAR application. He did join GAR. I have never felt compelled to have the status. Not familiar with what they do and already stretched to the limit with ANOTHER ORGANIZATION I VOLUNTEER FOR.
Diane Mazurek It's not the status club is once appeared to be. Members come from all walks of life, every race and creed. We all just have one thing in common, that we have Patriot blood in our veins and we will work to promote patriotism still. I encourage anyone here interested to check out the national public website and the DAR website in your state, where you can request more information.
Diane Mazurek The DAR is non-political also. It's a no-no to discuss politics (which I have had to remind people a couple times) and we NEVER do political work.
Karen Proctor Stone I'm waiting on my DAR application to be approved I didn't use my Hartwell ancestor because I had better documentation on another line
Stephen P Hartwell I have the application forms on my desk but not sure if I'm eligible.
Karen Proctor Stone Stephen Contact your local chapter they will help you SAR is a little easier to do than DAR. I helped my brother with his SAR but I had to find extra documentation for one of my generations for the DAR.

Does anyone know any of the Hartwells from Illinois?? I'm a Hartwell and my father is a Hartwell and he is from Decatur Illinois, his side of the family is from Illinois as far as I know I'm just trying to get to know where my my last name comes from. If anyone could get back to me it would be nice or how I could do the research myself.

Ellen Chase Arnold I would start backward to get birth certificates or other documents with yourself, your dad, his dad, and so on. Eventually you will find a birth certificate not from Illinois and that will be a good start. Could try census records and death certificates if birth certificates are not readily available. Usually death certificates state the place of birth of the deceased and sometimes his parents.

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

Hello! Thank you for my acceptance to the group. I'm looking for any information about my ancestors Alice Cary Hartwell, and her possible father William H Hartwell who lived in Wisconsin. My research has not gotten me too far. Thanks!

Ernie Hudson UE Have you checked the Hartwell family website?? also their genalogy book advestised there. They are both exceellent. There is a posting on this page...
Diane Mazurek First of all never, ever trust the trees on Ancestry. Use it for document searches, but only trust actual documents. For each generation, get each persons vital records. Each of those written records will have at least a clue to the previous generation. Go to the county clerks office.
Diane Mazurek PS, your tree here says that Alice Cary Hartwell's mother was 11 years old when she was born. Extremely unlikely.
Brad Esquivel Her mother I'm not completely sure on but just added it so I didn't forget some information I found
Brad Esquivel Alice was also married for a time to Charles L Williams for a time. One of her census records show her Mother was born in Penn and her father in New York if this helps.

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. Nor the 10 Hartwell Roads in England, Ireland and the US; -5 Avenues; -1 Gardens; -1 Close and 1 Crescent. I guess it's no surprise with places called Hartwell that the roads going there carry the name.

Kenn Shank There is a Hartwell Peninsula in Oliver Bay on Reindeer Lake in Northern Saskatchewan Canada name for William John Chesny Hartwell and his son George who were part of the first group of settlers known as the Methodist Colony in Saskatchewan. W J C Hartwell was my paternal great grandfather.
Deborah L. Hartwell There is a Hartwell Lane in Philadelphia.
Chester Hartwell I attended SUC at Brockport where I did dance lighting on their main stage as well as the gym. I never saw anything weird....but I did receive differential treatment at the Bursar's Office !

Elise Hartwell I'm in Florida now, but I grew up in Chester county
Danielle Hartwell Oh, alright. I grew up in Florida and now live in Pittsburgh.
Elise Hartwell I know there's another Hartwell that I never met that lives not too far from me - my dad has met him.
Danielle Hartwell My family is in Jacksonville.

Danielle Hartwell Cool. Small world, big family. Nice to meet you!
Elise Hartwell Nice meeting you as well!
Elise Hartwell Hello Trevor, nice to meet you!
Elise Hartwell I'm sure! I don't know too much about his side of the family. I have 7 siblings, and we're all scattered, as the 5 boys were military, and one of the girls went military as well.
Eric Hartwell I know that there is a Hartwell Winery that is family owned somewhere near or in Napa. That's all I know about Hartwells in Cali.
Danielle Hartwell My grandfather, Paul Hartwell is in Tijuana, formerly in Coronado, CA
Carol C. Hartwell I'm Carol C. Hartwell, husband of James T. Hartwell. He, his father, and grandfather are California, but the next generation back was from Vermont. He is in HOA, though I can't find the book, but goes back to England. Two summers ago, my sister-in-law, who is married to my husband's brother, made a trip to the north east and spent some time in the Concord vicinity and the Hartwell house there and enjoyed the history. The owner of that house (tavern originally) is related, though not directly. I'm the genealogy person in the family, so I'm enjoying posts to this site.
Carol C. Hartwell Thanks, Trevor Hartwell, we have 2 sons and a grandson and only one book to pass down, so it's nice to be able to tell them where their Hartwell genealogy is. Our book was a gift from Ted's father in 1961, and the most recent generation is my husband's. Is there another edition since then?

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!.

Chester Hartwell
Chester Hartwell It's been heavily compressed, not much left.
Neil Hartwell I'm not sure it helps , but there seems to have been a Gale W H born 15 Sep 1892 in Batavia Township, Clermont Ohio. Another Gayle Warren Hartwell 1901-1945 from Iowa (son of Ira & Maude ) who lived in S.Dakota. all a bit west of New England.

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.)

Hartwells and the Weather :
The good folk of AER (Atmospheric and Environmental Research ), who work from offices in Hartwell Ave, Lexington probably don't know about George E Hartwell who measured weather in Columbus, Ohio in 1835 http://www.forgottenbooks.com/readbook_text/Magazine_of_Natural_History_1835_1000103587/355 ,
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.

Alice L. Hartwell Frank E. was an amazing man. My parents were friends with him and his wife, Florence, and we frequently visited them at their beautiful home in VT. They lived in an old house by a creek, which was lovely to listen to when you went to sleep. Frank E. did beautiful needlepoint, published his own writings on his own printing press with hand-set type, drove from VT to AZ every winter well into his 90's... It seemed there was nothing he couldn't do! I adored him.

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.
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
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

What was it about the Hartwell name that it has been passed down as first or middle names in so many families? I have an Uncle Hart, (Hartwell) and many ancestors, male and female had it as middle name.

Tom Jones Same with my father and three generations before him: middle name of Hartwell.
Ellen Chase Arnold Although I don't carry the name of Hartwell I am named for my ggrandmother who was a Hartwell. She was Ellen May Hartwell Bill aKa E. May Hartwell Bill. When I was cleaning out my mom's house for an auction there was a domed trunk in the attic with a leather band around it. Inscribed in the band was E. May Hartwell. I had so many decisions to make that I let it go to the auction and always regretted it. I always hoped that someone with the name Hartwell bought it!
Austin Hartwell Hartwell is my fathers last name and grandparents last name to so I care the last name therefore my whole family cares the last name
Kathy Brostmeyer West Lots of surnames are used as middle names, I think Hartwell is an especially nice name and we are proud of it! I am from the Lorenzo Dow Hartwell family, Lorenzo being my 5 times great grandfather. Unfortunately my Mom's only brother did not have children so our family line doesn't have any Hartwell males to carry on the name hence the naming of my nephew's middle name as Hartwell! 🙂

In addition to the Massachusetts Hartwell immigration, Hartwells made it to the early Virginia Colony . Henry even seems to have had his own wine bottles. His brother John married Elizabeth Rogers in c.1705, who went on to marry Stith Bolling. A bit of searching and you'll find Pocahontas.

We need more Hartwells to take a Y-DNA test and join the Hartwell Y-DNA Project.

Maurice Gleeson Here, here! I'm particularly interested in seeing if the Irish Hartwell's are related to any other Hartwell's. There is only 1 Hartwell currently in the Irish phonebook but back in the late 1600's they were Mayors of Limerick, married into the Spearin family, and produced lots of descendants called Hartwell Spearin ... http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~spearin/tradgen/hartwell.html
Tom Jones Steve: Not being well-versed about DNA I take it there's no value in taking the test for those of us who have Hartwell lineage through a long-ago female Hartwell. Correct?
Steve Hartwell Correct, Tom. We are looking for males with the surname of Hartwell (perhaps you have a living male cousin?) who have known Hartwell ancestry, the more generations the better. If there are DNA matches between them, then we can use the results to help those with Hartwell brick walls (including mine, 6 generations back - who were the parents of Daniel Hartwell?, b.1780 Conway, Massachusetts, USA, d.1810 at sea).

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

Hartwell Aircraft Supplies - Placentia CA

Kevin Tighe Wow, Neil, I never knew that! In the summer of 1975 I worked at a place in Placentia that did valves for the pipeline in Alaska, called General Valve, I think. They did some aerospace, too. I didnt know about this Hartwell company. I had then and still have now cousins in Placencia, too. (Not Hartwell cousins, though, on my dad's side, but they knew my mom's maiden name). My mom and dad lived in Cypress, which was just a few miles from Heartwell Park in Long Beach. They used to play golf there a lot. My mom used to say that it was named for a distant relative who added the E to the Hart part. Here is a little blurb on who he was, then I will add some stuff on the park. http://www.presstelegram.com/lifestyle/20140914/heartwell-park-named-for-long-beach-pioneer-col-charles-heartwell
Kevin Tighe My mom used to see Tiger Woods playing golf with his dad when he was 2 years old at Heartwell and at the golf course at the Los Alamitos Naval Air Station. Here is the golf course at Heartwell park. I think my mom secretly loved that it bore her maiden name, even though the E was added. She loved to play golf. When she passed in 2011 we had a tripod made of 3 wood drivers holding up a spray of flowers. And a green made of grass surrounded by roses with one of the golf balls she had a hit as a hole in one, I think at Heartwell. We put that ball in the casket before it was closed. http://www.heartwellgc.com

No 474 on the list in Debretts http://www.burkespeerage.com/search_index.php?book=Official_Roll_of_the_Baronetage

The current holder is the 6th Baronet http://www.thepeerage.com/p43261.htm

But don't ask me to explain why this system exists , it just does

Maurice Gleeson The 6th Baronet is Sir Anthony Hartwell and he is my 8th or 9th cousin. I've written to him asking for some more information about the Hartwell's from whom he descends (they were mayors of Limerick in 1676-1677).

How about Hartwells in the Cold War - Project "Hartwell" was the first name for the extensive system of undersea microphones to detect submarines - Apparently named after a Lexington MA Restuarant

Deborah L. Hartwell That Lexington MA farmhouse was the original home of William Hartwell built in 1636. It was used as a restaurant when it burned to the ground in the 1960s.
Alice L. Hartwell We used to eat there when I was a child.

Hi - There are various Hartwell family trees out there , constructed on platforms that you have to pay to view. One that is free is Wikitree
http://www.wikitree.com/ On it there are some 1292 Hartwell records so far posted by 6 stalwart individuals - covering links in UK, Canada, Australia, NZ and USA

Alice L. Hartwell The Hartwell Geneology should have pretty much everyone. Do you have a copy, Neil Hartwell?
Maurice Gleeson I have a tree that includes the Irish Hartwell family, from Limerick in the late 1600's. They married into my Spierin branch and the name Hartwell Spearin is still present in their descendants today. Are there any Irish Hartwell's out there??? ... http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/20976966/family?cfpid=1008950902&selnode=1
Neil Hartwell The US cousins may have it all recorded but I'd beg to suggest that there are more Hartwell's than that.
Neil Hartwell The current count is 3340 Hartwell records
Alice L. Hartwell Count from where? If you have any genealogical information that is not already in the genealogy or its supplements, I'm sure Joy Peach, the HoA genealogist, would love it if you would share.
Neil Hartwell Try here http://www.wikitree.com/genealogy/hartwell
Karen Megerle Joy Peach is wonderful to communicate with if you haven't, Neil Hartwell. From the sounds of your research, you should enjoy sharing information with her very much.

Does anyone know of Herman Spence? He is researching Hartwells in Ireland and I would like to share information with him. If anyone does know him, please could you pass on my details to him or vice versa. My Irish Hartwell tree is here (going back to a William Hartwell born about 1620) ...

I know that the Hartwells featured in the Revolutionary War, but I hadn't seen the link to the Salem Witchcraft trials before - http://salem.lib.virginia.edu/texts/tei/swp?div_id=n170 (One of the Samuels was a juror who acquitted two poor accused women. )

Now that I have the Hartwell video in a digital picture frame and it's playing on loop, I am now starting to see who is who. I have home video footage of my great great grandfather and great great grandmother. Anyone else out there have access to similar footage from 1920's? I would love to find someone else in the same fortunate position.
