Hearfield ancestors - the family tree

This diagram shows the lifespans and connections between most of the men I can trace who bore the name 'Hearfield'. For example, James' son Peter was born at Hampsthwaite in 1669 and died at Adel in 1746. Many of these people were farmers. The evidence seems to show that everyone is descended from a couple living at Arthington in the late seventeenth century.

Below the diagram is a table of marriages, with links to pages about individual families.


The full names of the married couples in this tree are given in the table below. All the names will eventually link to separate pages giving full details (including BMD and census records) of each family, but that won't happen overnight. Please email me with any comments or corrections. I'd like to hear from you!


This big table (right) lists the marriages shown in the tree above.
