Notes

  • John Harding came to America with his wife and children : Richard, John, Joseph, Lemuel, Amos and Oliver in August 1623.
  • from Information about John Harding

In seeking to uncover the identity of those early pioneers who may be classed as the "First Hardings on American Soil," the historian must go back to the work, "A Briefe Narration of the Original Undertakings of the Advancement of Plantations into the Parts of Amerika, especially Showing the Beginnings, Progress and Continuance of that of New England," written by Sir Fernando Gorges in 1658.

"The following account of John Harding was given by Wilbur J. Harding in 1925:


" Of John Harding, the head of the line so far as can be traced by public records, little is known aside from the information given in the public records of Northampton, England, which contains a copy of his will, dated 1636, in which was granted certain real and personal property to his brother, William and to his sons, Richard, Amos, John, Lemuel and Oliver. This will was filed March 3, 1637 and contains a notation that the testator died January 14, 1637. No children other than those mentioned are named, but it is possible, that as was often the case, other children might have been previously provided for. The will mentions that the testator was then in his 70th year, thus fixing the date of his birth as 1567. He was undoubtedly a husbandman and a direct descendant of Fits Harding. It also appears that he was an elder brother of William Harding, the father of Mary, afterwards Lady Gorges."
