We have two Hartley families in our tree. At the head of one is John Hartley who died in 1788 at Gosforth, Cumberland and at the head of the other is John Hartley who died in 1637 in Eskdale, Cumberland. It may be that the two families are connected, as we have found a common link with both families at Peel Place, Gosforth.
I owe a big thank you to Susan Mandell for helping me to get so far with the Eskdale Hartleys, I had been stuck for a long time until she pointed me in the right direction.

Hartley – Eskdale
The name Hartley goes back over centuries in records relating to Eskdale. In the Percy survey of 1578, three Hartleys were mentioned, Nicholas, Gilbert and Nicholas jnr.
Many of the Hartleys were farmers, paying rent to the lord of the manor for tenements which changed hands over the generations. The manorial records for the Eskdale area document these changes, and show that many of the farms in the area were occupied by Hartleys at some stage.
John Hartley’s great grandson Jonathan Hartley who was born in 1719 married Barbara Postlethwaite at Eskdale in 1747. Barbara was the daughter of Thomas Postlethwaite who died at Peel Place, Gosforth in 1763.
Their son Thomas Hartley farmed at Peel Place and passed on property to his son John after his wife Jane’s death. So far we have not found a record of Thomas Hartley’s marriage to Jane, but are still looking.
Thomas and Jane’s son John Hartley married Sarah Porter at Gosforth in 1805. John and Sarah had seven children, their daughter Sarah, born in 1815, married William Muncaster at Gosforth in 1835. William and Sarah Muncaster farmed at Peel Place.
