Hawleys of Parwich, Derbyshire, again

+5 votes
100 views
I can find no local evidence whatsoever in Derbyshire for the existence of Joseph Hawley-84 or his son Samuel Hawley-85. The sources that are shown (such as they are) are from Connecticut, much later, and appear to be confused with Joseph Hawley-33 and his son Samuel Hawley-19. Hawley-84 and Hawley-85 are both married to the same woman, Katherine Booth-171, who is not the daughter of the parents shown (who married a John Nodder in Yorkshire), but is probably intended to be Katherine the wife of Hawley-33 (Unknown-527798).

I suggest detaching Booth-171 from the Hawleys so that she can find her correct husband; merging Hawley-84 into Hawley-33, and Hawley-85 into Hawley-19. Whether there is any evidence for any of the children in Connecticut I cannot tell: from my Derbyshire perspective they all appear invented.

Please do. There are already three previous merges into Hawley-84. It seems that Joseph Hawley just keeps on being duplicated :-).

Although, I agree in general that Hawley-84 and -85 are probably internet fiction, and have been conflated with the Connecticut Hawley's, just merging fathers, Josephs, and sons, Samuels is not as simple as it sounds. There are also all those children attached to the Parwich Hawleys who need to be sorted out and determined if they are real are imaginary.

Anne B. do you have the bandwidth to handle this on behalf of the PGM project?  

If so, probably PGM members will step forward to assist you with the children you mention above.
Yes I can, slowly. I did start on one of the dtrs already.
Thanks Anne,

Let me know if you desire help from other PGMers.
