Hi Mr Hartrick,
I am currently writing an article for in-college archaeological magazine entitled "The Search for Abel Rams Gorey Palatines",the college is University College,Dublin.I was wondering if I could have your permission to include in the article an image from your website.The traditional New Ross homestead was what I was hoping to use if possible? Many thanks,Dolores Kearney.

So, how did you like the Website? very much! great history!
Are we related, [any spelling of the name will do] possibly but distantly. I am Palatine by Y-dna, I think.
Would you like to share family information? I'll share any that I have
Comments:
I was wondering if you or other members of the clan — or Palatines in general — have put together your dna results to trace connections. My own Y-haplogoup is rare except for being found in the original Palatinate around Karlsruhe-Mannheim: it is J2a -M92, or in other notation: J2a4b1*. My father was born in Adare Limerick, which had a substantial Palatine population into the 20th Century. Many of my ancestral connections are German. (My father's name 'Heathcote' was a name given after adoption.) Cheers

Benjamin born 1806, and william born 1807.Did william marry a hartrick, a godkin or a forbes? Also if sources or transcripts exist?

Your work on the Hartrick Family is very interesting, We always thought that Grandpa Hartrick came from England, but now we know that he came from Ireland. His wife, my Grandma, came from Darwin, Lancashire, England. I have visited her birthplace. My Grandma, Grandpa, and all of their family have passed on. One aunt still remains Uncle Ross's wife Audrey (Baines). Gordon had 5 children - 3 still live. Earnest had 3 - all still living. Ross had 3 boys who are living. William, Florence and Harold had no families. My Mom, Eleanor, had 3 and we are all still living. (William (me), Robert and Audrey.

Kind Regards

I'm doing some research on the Wexford Rynhart family, who seem likely to have settled on Abel Ram's estate near Gorey. I suspect the first Henrich Rhinehart farmed at Tubberneering or in that parish of Leskinfere. I've looked at the Ram papers and maps in NLI, Dublin. Two things you might be able to help with (1) Did you ever come across any records for this Gorey estate in the 1700s? There are rent rolls for the early 1800s but I suspect that some land has been sold, bequeathed elsewhere by then - as townlands like Ballinamona or Ballygullen don't appear and I think they might originally have been part of the Ram estate. (2) Do you know anything of the succession between Rams from 1700-1870. I see a will for Abel Ram in 1771 and I think the estate went to Stephen then and perhaps to Abel, his brother by 1818 but I'm not sure. Do you know anything of links between the Rams and Richard Levinge of Kildare (mentioned in will). Any thoughts appreciated, Barry Dalby

I'm interested in your Irish links, especially with the Palatines. I'm currently based in Whitby, Ontario. I was born and raised in Ireland but I've spent over 20 years in Africa and only 4 years in Canada. My family were tenants for Lord Waterford on my fathers side and a bit wilder on my mothers (Boyle) side. Her side were planted in Castlecomer in Co. Kilkenny in the 1690's.

Hi, Mary was my 3rd Great grandmother, daughter of John Hartrick Junior born 1774 all of New Ross County Wexford.
Mary married Samuel Godkin, and they had Anna Harris Godkin, who was my G grandmother and lived in Fiji after marrying my G Grandfather Charles Albert Bentley. Lots to share if you so wish.
This is so exciting, I hope to hear from you soon,

My Great Grandmother was Rachael Poole from Ballyowen, Gorey in Wexford. She came to County Tyrone as a National teacher. She was the Principle of Brantry School. She died whe I was 11 years old at the age of 93. She was a wonderful lady whom I was very fond of. I am however trying to find the parents of James Leahy who was a doctor in Templemore Tipperary, he was married to Elizabeth Jane Langford. My maiden name is Leahy. I have just returned from Tipperary where I visited Doctor James Leahy's home place. The Leahy family I am related to is from CAvan and Westmeath. Have you any information that might help? I note that Doctor James Leahy's wife was related to the Hatricks.

Comments:
I just wanted to write and tell you that Jennie in your article is my great grandmother on my mothers side. She married a man with the last name of Bennett who also came here from Ireland.

It was a pleasure reading your story, finding out that we are related, distantly, but related.

I have just started to research my ancestry and found your article very helpful. It was interesting to find out that they possibility of relatives on both sides of my family could have been in the civil war, one for the north and one from the south, as such per your knowledge, that was not the case but interesting just the same.

Thank you for posting the article

I am looking for any Palatine names that sound or spell like the Irish name Kinsella. We have a cousin who says her family Irish-ised their name, but were of German stock.

Also any Palatines settled in Kildare and Longford counties.

You cite the IPA as been helpful to you, I wish I could say the same. They never even replied to my email!!!

I am the daughter of Frederick Langford, with whom you have corresponded regarding Hartrick in Ireland. I wanted you to know of his passing, November 19, 2010, technically in Arcadia, California, though he lived out his life in Pasadena, California.

My sister Rosana and I are very interested and active in genealogy, and I am the inheritor of all my father's genealogy notebooks and research material. If you would like to correspond, my email is in this posting.

Hi Lester,

I corresponded with you in 2008 and thanks for all the information and files you sent me. I have them in safe keeping. Please note my change in email address since 2008.
I did forward you some scanned photos of Abraham Hartrick gold scales he used in the 1800s in Walhalla Australia. I still have the gold scales. Could you possibly send the scanned photos back to me as I realised I did not keep copies and I have been unable to get photos as good again.

Your work inspired me to continue to research my family history and that of my wife's (she came from India). We now have quite a comprehensive view of all our forbears back to the 1700s (some even further.

I am still working so have been unable to visit family sites in Eastern Australia or UK. But plan to visit some sites when we visit the UK on holiday later this year.

all the very best

My great-grandfather emigrated to Quebec Canada around 1842. We can find little information about the family except they apparently lived in County Sligo in western Ireland.
I don't think Brinkman as a typical Irish name and I wonder if they were from the Palatine. Your story gives all kinds of details I was unaware of. Do you know if there is a list of family names landing in Dublin in 1709?

My brother was George Briggs Hartrick II (dec), he had one son George Briggs Hartrick III - who also has a son named George Briggs Hartrick IV. My father, who is the brother of James, Paul, Phillip, and sister, Joan (Murphy)- all originally from Royal Oak - told me that Judge Hartrick was from Canada and his parents were farmers. I believe the Bosarte’s were from France.

I have been working on my genealogy for approx 18yrs. Recently I have discovered the reasons behind memories or feelings associated with differnt places, people and time. This info could not have been passed on to me because I was adopted and knew nothing of my genetic past/roots until I was 32. I have recenlty discovered a connection to the Salem witch trials, Ann Bolen and my roots in Ireland and Germany. It is my belief that I have experienced ancestral memories. Am looking to coorospond with someone with similar experiences and to define this issue in a logical theoritical fashion.

Thanks

Dear Lester,First let me explain the importance of your website to my wife's family. It will be as clear as I can be as her ancestry is very complicated.I have been working on it for a little over a year and have found out that her grandfather X6 was married to a Palatine and this is the first time that I have been able to find information about Able Ram and his work with the Palatines, which I may say has helped me a great deal. As her grandfather was a unique German to say the least it would be better to just give you his name and let you 'Google' it, which would at least start the ball rolling. His name is Matthias Buchinger and you will understand why it would take some considerable time to explain. We currently have 6/7 generations to deal with and all in some way or another have been musicians in one way or another, some instrument makers and others performers all coming from Matthias, including a grandson who was musuician to the Duke of Clarence later to become William VI. The importance of your web page is that it gives us a connection via a letter he (Matthias) sent which had the name of Able Ram in it. I hope you can make some sense of all this as I have written it in rather some haste. Thank you again, Peter Cook. Oh! and his wife's name was Anna Elizabeth Tyse.

Comments:
Hi Lester

My name is Terry Condio. My great-grandmother, Margaret Frizelle was born in New Ross, Wexford. Her family comes through Sutton Frizelle. I was lead to believe that there is a possiblity that the Frizelle family were Palatines. Would you know if the name Frizelle is from the Palatine region. Sutton Frizelle was born in 1717 and passed away in 1763. He was married to Marie. He had at least two sons, James and Nicholas. It appears that Nicholas is in every generation of Frizelles.

My father's ancestory is Italian and English, while my mother's ancestory is English and Irish (including the Frizelle and Roche families of New Ross, Wexford)

Would you be kind enough to let me know if you anything about the Frizelle family of New Ross and Old Ross.

Thanks

Terry
Vancouver, Canada

There has been some family history done by another family member. My grandfather was Albert Poole a bootmaker. His Ancestors came out to Sydney, Australia in 1840 I believe, 2 Poole brothers (whose names I don't have with me at present) but I gather they were of the Palatine Poole family and the Ram Estate has been mentioned. Any information you have about their family or others and their life at the Ram Estate would be of interest

Good evening to you -I thought I would send a little note to let any Hartricks out there know if they are Art collectors that on my web gallery - www.Sketchandlinegallery.com - I have a lovely large oil painting by Archie. It is a true impressionist style work and it reflects the contact that he made with that group of artists.
Many thanks for your time - Adrian.

Im not quite sure if, and how, i am related to you but i just found it very interesting to read about people with the same last name as me! The website was very detailed and it seems like you must have done a great deal of research to come up with all of the information. Great Job.

I am looking for a little more information about
Archibald Standish Hartrick to help with a biography of my great grandfather, Godefroy Durand.

For some background, Godefroy Durand was an artist of some renown in the 2nd half of the 19th century. He did sketches and watercolours for Queen Victoria, illustrations in many books, and was employed by The Graphic as well as other publications in England and France. Prints of his works are still available on the Internet, as are copies of a book of his drawings. Several of his originals have been sold in the last 10 years for substantial sums.

There is a short paragraph about Godefroy in Simon Houfe's book " The Dictionary of 19th Century British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists". It states that "Durand joined the permanent staff of The Graphic in 1870 and remained on it for many years ... He was still there in 1890, when Hartrick joined the staff and he described him as 'an elderly Frenchman ... permanently on the paper to do hackwork'."

Leaving aside Hartrick's critical assessment, what is of keen interest to me is the assertion that Godefroy was still permanently employed by The Graphic in 1890. This is inconsistent with documentation in our family archives. For example, we have a very large book about Paris in French with the inscription "a notre amie G. Durand par les eleves de L'ecole des Beaux Arts 1889 H. Recnault" (i.e. to our friend G. Durand from the students of The School of Fine Arts). We know that Godefroy studied at L'ecole des Beaux Arts as a young man. The inscription strongly suggests that he returned there to teach. We also have a large aerial photograph of the 1889 Exposition Universelle in Paris with the endorsement on the back "A Monsieur Durand Les deux jeunes amis Abanchecorne". This would seem to support the contention that he returned to Paris prior to 1889. We know that he did return to Paris, and died there in May 1895. The question is when did he return to Paris?

This is a long preamble to my request of you. Are there any more references to Godefroy Durand in your material that might shed light on when he returned to Paris, and whether he might have spent time in both London and Paris?

Many thanks for any insights you might be able to provide.

Ian Godfrey Durand

Hi,

I am one of the organisers of a small voluntary run walking and arts festival in the Cowal Peninsula of Argyll, Scotland. This year we are a Homecoming event and also a Japan-UK 150 event, celebrating the signing of a treaty of friendship and trade between Japan and the UK which signalled the end of Japan's 250 years of isolation. To bring both celebrations together we are mounting a small exhibition 'Alexander Reid and the Japanese Influence -Art, ships and plants' and on one of the panels for this I would like to have used A S Hartrick's drawaing of Van Gogh and his self portrait. Hartrick knew Reid (the Glasgow art dealer painted by Vincent Van Gogh) - he is mentioned in the book as being very like Van Gogh and they must have known one another in Scotland. Rhu, where Hartrick and his mother stayed, is just across the Firth of Clyde from the Cowal Peninsula and Reid ran a gallery in Glasgow

I have been in touch with Cambridge University Press who say they have no objections to our using the images but we should contact Hartrick's estate. I have no idea how to do this as he and his wife had no children. I see you had permission from CUP and wonder if you managed to track down the Hartrick estate owner for permission. Your help in this would be much appreciated. Further information on the Cowalfest website www.cowalfest.org

My family name is spelled Hatrick. I can only go back as far as Michael Hatrick and Mary Stafford who lived at Hatrick’s Point in Otonobee (near Peterborough) at the mouth of Rice Lake, Ontario, Canada. My branch (James Hatrick) left Canada in the 1860’s and settled in Titusville, Pennsylvania. On your site you mention corresponding with Mike Hattrick in the state of Washington, and that he is a descendent of William Hartrick. I correspond with him also and we have found our common ancestors but I’m lost as to how we are connected to Charles and William Hartrick. I’m missing a link! Can you point me in the right direction? Even if there’s no connection, I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the history of your family, and I especially enjoyed your article on Inherited Memory. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Living here in Maine during these long winters I turn to genealogy (particularly March). I must add I am fortunate to have the free time to do so. Recently I been wondering what makes me so obsessive about this never ending search. I have been on this day mentally trying to get out the door to get groceries, noticing it has started to snow was all I needed to go to the computer and google search "Psychology of genealogy". Fascinating! Yes that's it! I'm not totally nuts! Not only do I research my own family history but my son's girl friends, my friends and co-workers at L.L. Bean! You have offered such a wonderful insight. Now I can get groceries... Thanks again, What else do have? Carlarae Twadelle

I'm very interested in your concept of inherited memories. In fact, I'm writing a novel which has at its heart this very idea. Have you read much of Jung's concepts about this? I live in Tucson, work at the University of AZ and would like to know who is researching this phenomenon. I have done a lot of family research as well, dating some lines back to the 1500s in Switzerland. They were Palatinates who came to Pennsylvania. I have another story started exploring this history as well. I'm interested to know what more you have learned and what sources you are reading.

I am descended from John Hartrick, bn 1813, Christened at Bath Cathedral. His father was Matthew, his mother Jane. Matthew was a member of the Wexford Militia, and shown on a census as being born in New Ross. Thus, I am sure he is one of the 'Clan'.
I have seen a tree posted by BrianJCook1 on Ancestry.co.uk which links him firmly into the Palatine line of descent, right back to Johann (Hans) Georg Hartrick.
I am trying to keep my claimed ancestry as honest and provable as possible, so I have mailed him through the site but not yet received a reply.
In the meantime, I wonder if you have any knowledge of how my Matthew fits it?

My mother Marianne Isobel Grant (known as Min) was a daughter of Florence May Hartrick (22 Nov 1899 - 20 Jul 1975). Florence Hartrick was a daughter of Abraham Hartrick (4 Jun 1854 - 11 Dec 1927), who in turn was the son on George Standish Hartrick (21 Feb 1829, New Ross Ireland_- 18 May 1904, Ballarat Australia).

I have just commenced researching my family history. I live in Perth, Western Australia (born here in 1955),with my wife Melody and our 2 children, Grace (19) and Cameron (18).

I have a copy of a letter you wrote to my mother who lives in a nearby suburb.

Please advise if there is any Australain Hartrick family information you would like and I will endeavour to find it.

Abraham Hartrick was a gold prospector and fortunately his gold scales and weights were passed to me. So I have something tangible that he would have handled and taken great care of.

kind regards

Hello,
Ever since a child, I was always intrigued what was behind those large walls, when I came on vacation from America. One of our family's farms is about a 10 min walk up Rock Road. It is called Knockina. Out of no reason, I decided to search Ramsfort. Surprised, I found this site. A nice wealth of information here. My father grew up in Ballinatray, Courtown Harbor. He has a vast history from his childhood, and tales from many of the aristocratic families. Feel free to contact me. Email a few times in case I am in full spam deletion mode.

Hi Lester,

I don't believe that I have been in touch since discovering some more information about my ancestor John Hartrick shown in British censuses as "born in the Bristol Chanel" in 1813.

A distant cousin has come up with the information that John was baptised in Bath Abbey, not Bristol Cathedral as the family memories would have it! Anyhow - I have confirmed that he was baptised on October 13th, 1813 and parents were Matthew and Jane Hartrick of the Wexford Militia.

"Information from the National Archives, Kew. Quarterly Pay Lists - Wexford Militia
He marched from Bristol to Essex during October and November 1813, with a stop at Bath which coincides with the date when John was Baptised."

There is a lot of information there, including the fact that Matthew was stationed at Tuam and at Cashel

I shall eventually go back and have a look at more of the Militia records.

I have't found Matthew's death anywhere in England though in the Census in 1841 a Matthew is shown in Bedminster and in 1851 in Bristol.

Hope to have your comments in due course Lester.

Best wishes,

Janet

Am wondering if you have info regarding the family of Elizabeth Madill (1825-1907) who married Benjamin George Hartwick. Her parents were Benjamin and Ann Madill who may also have been the parents of my ancestor Benjamin Madill (ca. 1819-1893). Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Whilst i am a decendant of the Switzers who remained in Ireland - up until my mother moved to the UK in the 50's, I still have a sense of 'belonging' to the Palatine people.
I've enjoyed visiting your site, it has been delightful. Thank you.

My ancestors are descendants of Henrich Rhinehart of Co. Wexford. I have documentation of our earliest ancestor in Ferns in 1759 - his name was Thomas Rhinhart. The surname changed to Rynhart, then Rhynheart, then Reinhardt, and finally Reinhart. Did you come across this name during your research?

I understand my roots too were similar.
The first was Jacob Bowerman and he arrived in 1709 and was settled on Lord Southwell's land.
We stayed and about 1800 intermarried locally.
I believe my great grand-mother outlived her husband and then changed name and religion. I am an Irish catholic.
Did you ever come across my family during your research?

Hi, I was very interested in your web site of NEW ROSS, My Great Grandfather was HUGH COCHRAN, who lived at 60 South Street, New Ross, he was a watch and clock maker, and he made a clock for himself, but realising a lot of people didn't have their own clocks in the early to middle 1800s, and having a Gas lamp out side his house, he put the said clock in his front window facing out so passersby could see the time.

He was then commissioned to make 'The Tholsel' Clock, which has just recently been cleaned and restored.

HUGH COCHRAN'S son Samuel did his apprentiship for watch and clock making at John Fegan Jewellers New Ross.

Have you come across the name COCHRAN in NEW ROSS?

I have told you all this as a matter of interest, of the town.

Regards,

Hello Lester & Sophia!

I am a Roach from Ross/New Ross --- they are close together in Wexford. Something strange has happened in my DNA group. The other Roache/roach/Roches tested are close, but not matched. I am most closely matched to a Ruckle/Ruttle who tested (whose arns are even similar). That started me thinking. Could we be Palatines? My forebears arrived in Newfoundland from the late 1700s-1830 (pre-famine). Most have moved on (myself included). We wre always considered "different" and "a cut above"...not that we aspired to it. We have done very well and are nor all over North America. We work!

I wonder of there is someone in your Palatine group who would test or at least compare records with me. I have a tin of research, but have never connected it to Ireland for our family - which has me thinking. We are also Prod and RC - switchers - no big deal when the right lady comes along :-)

In Canada, my forebears originally were horsemen and farmers (fishing as needed inshore). Our closest neighbours were Drukens (Drohan in Irish), but local people thought them German. By father was a construction superintendant and I have an MBA (retired from CBC and the federal Public Service). We are happy to let others be in the spotlight, but we like to be behind the curtain :-) Pls advise what you think/advise. Your excellent website started me thinking...connecting the dots. Thanks you for you timer :-)

Lester. I came across your Theory of Inherited Memory, researching the subject, as I came up with the concept by 'inspiration'. Good reading! I too believe we have instincts, just like the rest of living things, which result from our inherited memories, that our brain is not simply a 'blank slate' at birth, with immense unused capacity, but rather that it is full at birth, of inherited memories, which we "adjust" based on our own life's experiences. I graduated in Psychology and am thinking of writing a book on the subject. If you would not mind, I prefer you do not publish my comments, bit of private notion at this point. Richard

Are we related, [any spelling of the name will do] Yes, I have found a Nelis who married a Hatrick in Derry, Ireland.
Would you like to share family information? Yes.
Comments:
I am delighted to have found your web-site today. My great-grandmother was a Mary Jane Nelis, who was born in Derry City in 1842 and emigrated to NZ in 1867. One of the Nelis family who lived in Derry City in her life-time ( found in 1858-59 Griffiths Primary Valuation of Ireland) was a James Hatrick Nelis, a stationer. I was very interested to find that Hatrick is a Palatine name as Nelis is also, according to some authors. I see one of the points you make in your article is that Palatines tended to marry other P's in Ireland. They did in my family in two other instances I know of. My gt-g'mother's sister married a Frizelle, another Palatine name found in Derry which O'Connor only mentions as being in Southern Ireland. Her grandson came to NZ and married his second cousin, a granddaughter of my gt-grandmother!

I am trying to find out how and when my Nelis's came to Derry. The ealiest mention of them in baptismal records there is 1746. It seems likely they were part of the 1709 migration from Germany but perhaps they came across from London or even Scotland to Northern Ireland after the main Irish Palatine settlements were set up. Patrick O'Connor has told me that he does not think the name Nelis was among those settled in Ireland in 1720 although his book says there was one family settled in Derry ( not named, as were none of the other 4 families he says were settled in the North of Ireland that year.) He also told me by email this week that the name Nelis is not mentioned in
Hank Jones book "The Palatine Families of Ireland" yet someone else told me they were. I have not been able to read that book for myself. Do you happen to have a copy you could do a look-up in for me? The Nelis's are certainly mentioned in books about Palatines of America.

I can send you details of the Hatrick-Nelis marriage if you are interested.

Regards

Barbara Holt

Lester Hartrick:

I am very interested, and impressed, with your essay on inherited memory. Believe it or not, I have been toying with the same concept for the past two or three years. As with you, I have some very specific experiences that have sparked my interest along this line.

I have recently been encouraged to invest these "experiences" further in text form. As a career journalist, and one who likes to be open to the possibilities while still remaining realistic, I have considered documenting them for, if nothing else, my children and grandchildren.


As I suspect you understand, without hard facts I have been hesitant. Yet I must confess, there is a part of me that feels there is a great opportunity here. Not just commercially or professionally, but perhaps scientifically as well. Imagine how this migh possibly impact research into any number of mental and emotional disorders.

I would be very interested in corresponding with you on this subject.

If you are equally as interested please feel free to contact me at the email address I have posted in your guest book.

Thank you, in advance for this opportunity as well as your time and consideration.

My grandfather's name was Thomas Hawkins. He was born in Wexford town in 1866. His father was George Hawkins and his mother's maiden name was Jane Isabella Hornick, born 1840.

His father was also called Thomas Hornick and he was married to Mary HARTRICK, thus my possible relationship to you! Are you able to shed on further light any of these individual?

Your page about the Rams of Gorey makes it sound like the Rams were better or maybe nicer landlords than others. The St. Michael's Parish website hints to something different. http://www.goreyparish.com/history.html
It says : "V. Rev. Patrick Synott was Parish Priest of Gorey from 1814 to 1845. He had to live in Kilanerin due to the hostility of the Rams, the local landlords, a situation that persisted even after Catholic Emancipation."
Maybe I misunderstood your page. Could you please explain to me what is true? How did the Rams treat the Catholic tenants and preists?

Dear Lester, I sent an email to you last week by clicking on the email address in your website but have not received a reply so thought I would try again this way. I was talking to Nancye Kent Perry last night and she asked to be remembered to you. She is 85 and in hospital after a fall, but very alert and still very enthusiastic about family history.


Here is my email again.

Dear Lester,

Thank you for your prompt reply to my email. You certainly know a lot about our family already but I can fill in some gaps for you. Yes we do live in Australia. James Leahy and his wife Elizabeth Ann (nee Langford) whose mother was Catherine Hartrick sailed to Australia in 1865. We think they emigrated because one of their daughters had caused a great scandal in Ireland by running off with a married man. I have the details of the court case as reported in the Dublin newspapers. James Leahy was a surgeon and it seems that he worked his passage out to Australia as ship's surgeon. He died in 1870 and Elizabeth in 1873. You are right about the witness to her death. It was her daughter Elizabeth who was by then Elizabeth Sides.

Peter's father Robert Lindsay Taylor was indeed a judge of the NSW supreme court and became chief judge in common law. Peter's full name is Peter John Lindsay Taylor and he was born 25 July 1940. His brother is Drayton Robert Lindsay Taylor. Peter was a barrister but is now an anglican clergyman. My name is Judith May Taylor (nee Beckenham). My birthdate is 28 October 1942. We married on 19 December 1964 and we have four children. David John Lindsay born 15 March 1967
Jonathan Peter Lindsay born 17 September 1969
Susanna Ruth Lindsay born 22 March 1976
Rebecca Mary Lindsay born 28 May 1979
Only Jonathan is married. He married Denise Margaret Byrne on April 8, 1995. They have three children who are the delight of our lives. Emily Rose Taylor was born November 2 1998. Cameron Peter Lindsay Taylor was born February 9, 2000 and Jamieson Jon Lindsay Taylor was born January 28, 2004.

I would love to receive your file. It is probably best to send it as an email attachment. Although I have gathered a great deal of information, I have not yet put it into a genealogy program so that joy is yet to come. My snail mail address is
1 Trinity Place
Cherrybrook
NSW

Australia

Do you still live in Chicago? I was an American Field Service exchange student in 1960-1 and I lived for a year in Chicago Heights. Pete and I went back in 1998 to see my American family which was wonderful.

Is Family Tree Maker a good program? I have both a Mac and PC and have not decided which one to use for genealogical records yet.

I am glad we have made contact.

Do you know whether our Elizabeth Hartrick was one of your family? She is as far back as I have researched. Elizabeth Ann Leahy (nee Langford)'s death certificate notes that her mother was Elizabeth Hartrick but that is all I know, apart from the fact that they were from the same area in Ireland. You might be interested to know that the Protestant faith of the Hartrick's has been passed down this line too. My husband Peter is an Anglican minister. I would love to hear from you if we are indeed related.

I actually stumbled on your site while researching the "Maslowian pyramid" ... as each generation ages, a new one steps up and realizes how little it knows of its predecessors... my father's family were American West pioneers who settled in Yolo County, California. Some of the family has done some research as far as the early 1800s, an all American connections. I suspect that we can find our Irish Griffin connections as well, with the advantages that the internet now provides. Whether we are related or not, I have enjoyed what I've read so far on your site (just the "psychology" page) and look forward to reading it all.

I am not sure how distantly you are related to A.S. Hartrick? or who exactly wrote this biography? but I was interested to read it, as I have a copy of "A Painter's Pilgrimage." It was inscribed by him in 1940. It must have been given to my grandfather, who was Francis Ernest Jackson ARA. I also have a water colour which he did for my mother to celebrate her wedding, so he must have been quite friendly with them!

Although not mentioned in the biography on the website, my grandfather ( Jackson) was one of the 4 artists who became founder members of what they called the Senefelder club.
( see p 217 and other references in the book). Interestingly it was Jackson who,upon returning from Paris, undertook to introduce the WHOLE craft of lithography to artists, both drawing and printing, from where it took off, having previously been a " commercial craft surrounded by secrets". Although Pennell's name seems to surface most often in connection with the founding of the Senefelder club, ( on web sites anyway!), but both Hartrick and Jackson were among the original 4 founder members. Anyway, I realise you must know all this!

My interest is really in knowing more about my grandfather. I never knew him, having grown up in S.A. and he died during the war. But I enjoy piecing together the histories of the people with whom he was associated.

I think you say he wrote 2 books? Which is the other one?
I enjoyed reading the biography, it is obviously well researched.

In case you are wondering I live in Canada now!
Thanks
Margaret Bear.

Fabulous website and research! I was truly fascinated by it.

My name is Shane Smyth, born in Montreal, Canada in January 1978. Our common anscestors are William and Elizabeth Hartrick who immigrated to Canada in 1816. Their daughter Catherine married John Boyd of Markham, Ontario on 29 October 1839 - and John and Catherine are my great-great-great-great grandparents. I have a considerable amount of information about the Boyd family, but knew nothing about the Hartricks prior to discovering your site -- many thanks!

Kind regards,

I found your site on the web. My family lived in New Ross - dating (according to information that can be documented) from the 1700's to 1800's - oral history had them shipping meat products to England. One member was a "captain" on a steamer ship on the St. Lawrence River in Canada after he left New Ross. Another was listed in a register as a "bacon cutter." And finally, a G. Hartrick recommended a Peter Dodd to the Friends of Education Society Sch. Let us talk.

Hi, Just browsing in Google, and typed in Palatines. Up came your site. You have done a really good job of presenting all the info you have found. Very easy site to follow.(good for oldies, like me) I am always looking for something about the Heavener family. I suspect that because some of them married outside the Palatine family there may not be much about them, pity really. I do know that Mary Heavener m William Pearson. Limerick, don't know where or when. A number of years ago, some family went from NZ to Limerick and met the Pearson/Heaveners. But there is nothing written about the trip, a few photos with very little information about them.
Thanks for you great site. All the very best..

Nice site, very intersting, a non-pretentious way of putting information forward. Usually when I see this sort of 'claim', Im used to seeing all the semantics that go with it to make it 'beleiveable'. However, this wasnt the case, your report on your own theory is well presented. I agree with this in many ways. My own musical ability has a to date, un-identified source other than genetics. I can play most instruments with a good degree of profficiency, and have played with many well known musicians here in Australia. Musical exposure was minimal in my upbringing, and my formal education on this topic remains nil. Very intersting. The Buddhist religion percieves this sort of thing to be a result of past lives you may have lived, similar to the carbon cycle is the energy that defines your personality. Interesting either way, I think we are seeking these unknown sources of information to find ourselves. That doesnt give any pretense though for a required religion :)

Good luck and keep on writing!

All the best to you and your other half,

I stopped by today to recommend the Hartrick GenForum page & to note the conjunction of Hartrick/Smith/Blatherwick surnames to be found in Row/Rhu, Dunbarton, Scotland. William Hartrick, s/o Standish, died there in 1873. He had married Sarah Josephine Smith in Glasgow 1863. He died at their home, Torwood Cottage, Row. They parented at least 4 children: Archibald Standish Hartrick, b 1864 Bangalore India; Dora H M, b 1866 Bengal, India; Amy Josephine, b 1867 Ballinasloe, IR & Duncan William, b Oct 1868, d Mar 1869, Inveresk, Scotland. In 1881, Sarah Josephine was a widow, living with children Ann J & Dora H M, at Torwood Cottage. In 1881, her mother in law, Henrietta Mary Innes Hartrick was also in Row, living in the household of William F Masterman [whose usual abode may have been Kent, England]. In 1883, Sophia J married Dr Charles Blatherwick. She became mother of Eva Blatherwick in 1884. She continued to live in Row/Rhu until death in 1916. In 1896, A S Hartrick married his step sister, Lily Blatherwick. Their marriage continued until 1934 when she died. He continued to practice artistry, living in England, until his death in 1950.

My name is Janet Hartrick and I live in Melbourne Australia. I married a descendent of George Standish Hartrick who came to Australia in 1852 with his wife Mary Matilda Syme. I am currently compiling a photo album and family tree for
my sons Matthew b 1976 and Joshua b 1979, sons of
John Hartrick b 1951 who was son of
William b 1911
who was also son of William b 1885
who was son of Abraham b 1855 who was son of
George Standish b 1829

The stories and information on your web site were fascinating. The George Standish Hartrick who came to Australia was born in Wexford in 1829.

It has been much easier to search this side of my sons family. Tomorrow I am going into our State Library where there are excellent databases. If you are interested in more info on Australian Hartricks I could send you what I get.

Thank you once again for the opportunity to read up on your family. The pictures really added to the site.

Lester, We have corresponded before.
I don't think I ever really readthe material at your site before. I am resaerching POOLE name in Wexford CO Ireland. Specifically my G,G, G grandfather Benjamin Jacob Poole b. 1799 Co. Wexford. Later was in Ontartio (Long Point?) and finally upper Michigan. It seems we have much in common. Iwent to Ireland two years ago a found out alot about POOLE's of Old Ross but nothing mentioned my Benjamin. Have you ever run across POOLE name on Dunbrody passenger list or in the Palentine settlement in Canada? Any ideas how to tie my Benjamin to Old Ross?

I suspect that the groom in this marriage was one of your relatives. Kilkenny Independent; May 7, 1828 MARRIED. On Tuesday, the 29th ult., at Iwistloge, by the Rev. Dr. Park, Standish Hartrick, of New Ross, Esq., to Henrietta Mary, second daughter of the late H.B. Innes, Esq.

I'm hoping to learn where Iwistloge is, or if the place name is a typo, what the correct spelling is. My ancestor was a Rev. Pack, and if there is one typo there might be two, so. . . . :) I read your account of the Hartricks in Ireland with interest. Our family tradition says that the first wife of Rev. Pack was also killed by the rebels. We've never been able to learn her name or confirm the story.

Several of my ancestors (on another side of the family)were among the Palatines who came to New York in 1710.

I'll appreciate any information you might be able to provide about the marriage.

Thanks,

Peggy

I, too, had ancestors in Co. Wexford so have been there a couple of times to research the family. It was Kevin Whelan who sent me to King Milne who lived not far from my family homestead. Through King I found the original Plummer farm and since meeting the family there we have become very good friends. I totally agree that the people of Ireland are warm and welcoming.
Thanks for the history lesson.

Would you like to share family information? Re-Lily Blatherwick
Comments:
20 years ago I bought a picture in Leigh-on-Sea (where I was born), painted by Lily Blatherwick and signed. It is of the John Knox house and is in the original frame, under glass. I was told it is over 100 years old.
Curious to find out who Lily was, I came across your website. It has given me quite a thrill to know something of this artists background.
Thank you very much

Hi there
This actually has to do with the email you sent to Riona. I never say her query, actually I only seem to get the odd mail from the wexford site. Either it is very inactive or for some reason I'm not getting the mail. I was extremely interested as I think my Evoys were connected with the Evoy forge. My ancestors are from the area so I would like to connect with Riona as it sounds as though she has clan in that area also. Do you have an email address for her. If you prefer send her ny email address and ask if she sould connect with me.
Have a wonderful Christmas. Happy New Year.

Dear Lester and Sophie Hartrick

We would like to use a lithograph which was published in the Illustrated London News 1917 by A.S.Hartrick on our educational website, the Learning Curve. I understand that Hartrick's work is still in copyright. Please can you inform me who owns the rights and who we may contact to receive permission to use the drawing on our website.

I look forward to hearing from you very soon.

My name is Stephan Hetrick and I am researching my paternal lineage. Based on my recently deceased father's recollections, the family is of German origin.

I am originally from Philadelphia,Pa. and have traced the family back to a Charles J. Hetrick born in Pa. about 1834. It is recorded in census records that his father was from Ireland. In the 1860 census, there is a Robert Hetrick (aged 60, b abt 1800) living with Charles and wife Esther McQuaid.

Robert Hetrick appears in the 1840 census for Philadelphia and then again (living with Charles) in 1860. Robert submitted his Notification of Intent in July 1833 in Philadelphia and Petition in October 1840, Philadelphia.

Have you come across a Robert Hetrick/Hartrick (etc.) in your study of Palatinates in Ireland?

I would appreciate any information you may have.

Steve

My Mother was a Batterton , her ancestors came from Co. Wexford ,Slevoy ,Taghmon, in the mid 19th Century.The Batterton name is not Irish and I am fairly sure it is Palatine , there are many Batterton descendents in the USA, but none of the name in Ireland now. There were some in the New Ross area There was a John Batterton who was a parish Sexton at New Ross some time before 1838. Some were in the Yeomanry and Freemen of Wexford. My Battertons however appear to have become Catholics and appear in the Taghmon Catholic Parish Registers between 1802 until 1873
when a John Batterton married Ellen Roche . My ancestors emigrated to England ( Liverpool)around the 1870s.
If you should come across any references to people of the Batterton name I would apreciate your letting me know.

Hi,
We may not be related but we are kindred spirits if your
homepage comments are anything to go by.
I became involved in this fascinating area of research about 2 years ago & haven't had a spare minute ever since
- just as well I'm " retired"
My Godfather, Dan Hogan, much loved by both my parents, was killed in the blitz in London and I took it on myself to research his life. I met his nephew Jack Hogan in Paris
( we've both spent most of our lives there) & it transpired that Dan was also his Godfather. It also transpired that
both our families were very close in Ireland in the 1930s.

Having discovered my late Aunts photo albums some 3 weeks ago when I was at home in Ireland I met Anne Phelan ( nee
Hogan - one of Jack's sisters aka phelrock) to identify her Aunts & uncles in my Aunts photo's & she copied me on your information about the Hogan headstone inscriptions from
St Mary's in New Ross - the Hogans ancestral home town.

Dan Hogan's death is included in the inscriptions as April
17, 1941 - the date on his Death Certificate is April 19, 1941- his body was recovered at 17.00 hours that day following bombing on the night of April 18/ 19. Could the 17
be a transcription error ?

Your informatiion clarifies something else, Dans birth on
July 31, 1898 was registered by M A Grangel,"present at birth" now we know she was his father's sister. Many thanks for your help.

With every good wish
Pat Hurley

My grandfather's name was Fogleson(g) a male family members were born in Ireland in 1840 living with him in 1900 in Kansas. There are a lot of "Patrick's" and "Kelly's" in our given names in the family so nothging made sense - German.Irish?? Until I read your great articles about the German palantines - I had never heard of this. I had been to Germany near the Black Forest and found "Vogelsang" (birdsong) streetsigns,etc so I knew what our name meant and it was a german surname but all the Irish family given names were confusing... Thanks for researching this... I'm not sure this applies to us but it is a beginning to solving the mystery!

Mr. Hartrick: Thank you for your website.

I was skeptical about your being related to us until I saw your photograph; you look just like our grandad. I will read everything later and figure out exactly how we are related, but I did notice in scanning the articles that you mention Michigan, which is where our family also claims to be from.

Geo. Briggs Hartrick was my grandfather (the judge you refer to). You may know he was at least locally famous as someone who stood up to the Purple Gang and what I think was known as the Black Legion. Several of his descendents have remained in the near Royal Oak area. Bruce (the lawyer you mentioned) and his sisters (including a dentist, Nancy, with an office on Woodward almost across the street from Hartrick Vet Clinic) are my first cousins. The Vets were Lyle Hartrick and Lyle's father (GB Hartrick's cousin). I am an anesthesiologist at Beaumont Hospital (same neighborhood, www.neuropathic_pain.yourmd.com). Thanks for all your hard work. I'll pass it on to the part of the Hartrick clan here.

My gggrandfather was John Hartrick - shown in the 1851 census for St. Julian, Shrewsbury as having been born in "Bristol Channel" around 1810. In wonder whether his parents were on their way to UK from Ireland? He is a Whitesmith at the birth of his first daughter Elizabeth Jane in 1838 in Shrewsbury.

Can anyone tell me who his parents were?

In fact I live near Old Ross in Co. Wexford so I am familiar with some of the places mentioned in your website. I would be grateful if you could supply me with any further information which you may have.

I was looking up "Hartrick" on google.com the other day in school to see if anything interesting came up, and my whole family history did! It was really interesting reading about my family history. I wasn't exactly sure it was the Hartrick family that I belong to at first, but then I saw "Royal Oak, Michigan, and even a picture of the old farmhouse, so I knew it was my family. Thanks for having this reference. I would have never known all this about my family, had it not been here.

I am currently researching my(second)great grandfather's life and I'm having a problem locating the current address for the Protestant Church that would have most likely been where my gggrandfather's parents would taken him to be baptised in New Ross after his birth in 1819/20.
I made a major blunder and wrote to the parish priest for St.Mary's Cathlic Church in New Ross, Co Wexford -- several months ago. This kind man took the time to send me a (handwritten letter) saying that his church was Catholic, and would have no record of birth for my Protestant gggrandfather.
Since your ancestors were members of the Church of Ireland, living in and around the area of Old Ross & New Ross during the time period of my gggrandfather's birth, I'm wondering if you could assist me with the (current) address of where I could inquire for a search for my gggrandfather's birth or baptism record?

SHARING OF MY CONNECTION TO NEW ROSS,COUNTY WEXFORD...
My gggrandfather was named John Joseph NOONAN. He was born in New Ross, Co. Wexford circa 1819/20.
He joined the British Army (14Th Regiment of Foot) some time in the mid-1830's. In 1854, he was pensioned off at Boyle, within a few months he joined up with the 93rd Roscommon Regiment of Militia. He served just under three years and left this militia to join up with the Royal North Lincolnshire Militia (at Waterford)in 1858. He retired from the RNLM as a Sergeant Major in the mid-1870's and moved to Salford in Lancashire, where he worked as a beer distributor.
In the mid-1880s he moved to Norwich in Norfolk (to be near his son -- my great grandfather) and died there in 1891. He, and his wife Mary Ann (O'TOOLE) are buried in Earlham Cemetery in Norwich.
All of my information regarding his place of origin has been obtained from his military records. The 1861 and 1871 census for England, list his birthplace as Ireland with the exception of 1881, where it lists his place of birth as Waterford, Ireland. I'm of the notion that his wife was the source of this information and she may have been referring to where his family came from and not to his actual place of birth -- which was New Ross, County Wexford.

Thank you for sharing with those of us who have come upon your website your expertise on your family line. I throughly enjoyed reading the material you have so generously shared.

very true that we have memories of the past.to give you an example:one day while visiting my brother's girlfriend home.as we are sitting at the kitchen table,(it was my first visit there)I could see on the wall a wooden frame,but as i'm sitting there ,there's nothing on the wall.I asked what happened to the sculpture on the wall.She then asked me to describe it.I did.By then,she was looking strangely at me,she then said;"IT BELONGED TO MY MOTHER,SHE DIED 10 YEARS EARLIER,THE FRAME WAS TAKEN DOWN AT THAT TIME,NOT SEEN AFTER THAT."SHE DID'NT KNOW WHERE IT WENT.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THAT ?Many times I have been to places,knowing that i had been there before.or sometimes meet people and know them even though it's the first time we meet.Excuse my writing,as I live here in Quebec,Canada,my first language is french,but working on my family,my ancestor came to Canada,from Wexford co.Ireland in 1777.It was reading your notes.

Through my grandmother's family I have links with New and Old Ross. Her grandfather was a New Ross merchant. I found a couple of the directories you used and found reference to all the families I have links to: Browne, Downes, Galavan and Howlett. Thank you for the idea. By the way how did you manage to find so many copies of old directories? Did you see that Bassett's 1885 Wexford Guide referred to the bacon factory in New Ross as second to none? I suppose this was the Hartrick one.

Thanks for sharing your site. I knew of the Palantines from reading Irish History but I did not know how or why they ended up in Ireland. I know they were respected by the native Irish because of their industry. I had read that they were concentrated in Limerick but can believe that they had communities other places too. Did those sent to America primarily end up in Canada. I know that many of the Hessian prisoners captured during the American Revolution decided to stay in the U.S. Will read the rest of your writings.

It must have been intuition that led me to click on your URL. My maiden surname is PAVIOUR-SMITH. My Grandfather came from London, England to New Zealand in 1889. His grandfather, Karl SCHMIDT, and older brothers Johann and Johann Jakob left Sobernheim (near Bad Kreuznach)in Rheinland Pfalz in 1797 as Napoleon's army was said to be two days away from their village. These German bakers worked diligently in London establishing flourishing businesses and raising and educating children who have many descendants around the world. The parents of the three brothers were Johann Peter SCHMIDT and Maria Sara HOFFMANN. I descend from two of the brothers as Karl's son David married Johann Jakob's granddaughter Elizabeth Smith FULLER, who upon marriage became Elizabeth Smith SMITH. These details were clearly recorded on the back of portraits of David and Elizabeth, causing me to question the reason for her having the funny name of Elizabeth Smith SMITH. So from early childhood I was into it - genealogy - mainly through going through family photograph albums and other family memorabilia shown to me by my grandparents when I was very young.
When I first went to England in 1961 I had no problem at all with finding my way about. I often felt that I had been there before. It just seemed to be my place, as much as my homeland, New Zealand, whereas the friend who went with me was forever getting lost. I took a trip down the Rhine from Mainz to Koblenz, knowing that Bingen was near to where my ancestors came from, but did not know the exact location of Sobernheim at that time. Of course I felt an affinity with the area there too but due to cost and distance (12,000 miles) and other factors I have yet to revisit Germany.
Much of my other research has been in Co. Wexford as I descend from the families of BUTLER, COLBOURNE, HUNT, EAGAR and HARRISON, mainly from around Gorey and also in Co. Carlow and Co. Wicklow. Ireland has been a focal area of research for me and I have been there four times.

The 1999 Journal is waiting for the Newsheet and will be mailed before Christmas.
We hope to have another Journal in January to bring things up to date. A lot of the articles and photos are ready.
How is your article coming along? Do you think you might have it ready for first week in January at latest?

Enjoyed reading "story". In your rsearch, did you run across any CARR from St. Mary's, New Ross, Wexford Co. If so, I would appreciate hearing about them as I have looked MANY places.Some of their names were William, George, and Edward. They date back to before 1700's. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. PAT in NC.
