Hardy's In America

Generation No. 1  

    1.  RICHARD  HARDY (JOHN5, MICHAEL4 DE HARDY, JOHN3, JOHN2, RICHARD1) was born 1577 in Wetwang, East Riding, Yorkshire, England, and died 1645 in Isle of Wight County, Virginia.  He married  Alice Wilson 1602 in Yorkshire, England, daughter of Robert Wilson and Unknown.  She was born January 12, 1586/87 in Shellington, Bedfordshire, England.  Died in Virginia.

Notes on the HARDY FAMILY :  The Hardy, Hardie, Hardey or Hardee family, as they variously spelt the name, were among the landed gentry of England in the early eleventh century, and are descended from the Norman Knight, De Hardie.  There have been Naval Officers of the name without number, but the name is rarely found in the Army list of England.  There are several portraits of this distinguished family in the Greenwich Navel Art Gallery.

Notes for GEORGE HARDY:

     The first authentic record that we find of this family in Virginia, is of George Hardy, the brother of John Hardy, who came to the Colony prior to 1636, at which date he is spoken of as a "Shipwright."  In 1644 George Hardy patented 300 acres, and in 1648   500 acres, situated upon Lawne's Creek, in Isle of Wight Co.  He was the owner of the famous Hardy Mill, which was owned by the family for generations.  He served as a member of the House of Burgesses from 1641-52.  He was a liberal supporter of the Established Church.  He  made a will March 16, 1654, which was probated on April 14, 1655; he names his loving wife, to whom he leaves all of his land, housing, etc., and after her death to be divided between his kinsmen, George Hardy, II, Christian Wilson and Thomas Hardy; so he evidently left no issue.
