HAET. (No. 1.)

0} America,

rHERE are several families of this name in America since the beginning
of the 17th century : some of them claiming to be of Irish ; some, of
English ; and some, of Scotch descent. The prevailing way of spelling
the name, which, however, has obtained in the New World, is : " Hart,"
Harte," "Hartt," "Heart," and ''Hearte."

Some of those families are descended from Stephen Hart* (or Harte),
Piaritan, who, about 1632, emigrated from (it is supposed) Braintree,
in Essexshire, England, to Massachusetts, United States of America ;
and from whom "Hart's Ford" (more lately rendered "Hartford") ou
the Connecticut river, took its name. That Stephen Hart was a farmer
and large landholder ; he and the company with whom he went to
America settled in Braintree, Mass., and afterwards removed to Newtown
(since called " Cambridge"), Mass., and there constituted themselves a
church, of which the said Stephen was elected " deacon :" hence has he
been called " Deacon Stephen Hart." He was in Cambridge (Mass.) in
1632, and admitted a freeman there, on 14th May, 1634. He went to
Hartford in 1635 ; was there a proprietor in 1639 ; and became one of
the eighty-four proprietors of Farmington, in Connecticut, in 1672. At
his death, in March, 1682-3, he was 77 years of age, and then lived at the
village of Farmington, on a tract of land (bordering the present town of
Avon) which is still known by the name of " Hart's Farm." His children
were : 1. Sarah, who on the 20th November, 1644, m. Thomas Porter; 2.
Mary, who was twice married — first, to John Lee, and, secondly, on the

5th Jan., 1672, to Jedediah Strong; 3. John, who m. Sarah ; 4.

Stephen, the name of whose wife is not known ; 5. Mahitabel, who m.
John Cole; 6. Thomas, b. 1643, who m. Ruth Hawkins. From those six
children of Deacon Stephen Hart, have descended many of the families
of distinction, now (1883) living in the Great Western Republic.

The sirname of said Stephen appears as Hart, in the list of Winthrop's
New England, among those who took the freeman's oath on the 14th of
May, 1634 ; while his brother Edmund's name appears in the same list as
Harte, where the e final is added. The history of Dorchester, Massa-
chusetts, makes that Edmund one of the first settlers of that town, and
there he had his house-lot in 1632 ; but he subsequently removed to
Weymouth. His children were, according to Savage, all daughters. It is
worthy of remark that Stephen Harte, of Westmill, in Hertfordshire,
England, was the first of the name recorded as living in that country.
And (see the " Harte" pedigree) it was in the 12Lh century that a junior
branch of the "O'Hart" family anglicised their name Harte, from the Irish
Ch-Airt, and first employed the e final in the name.

Another distinguished branch of the " Hart" family in America is
that descended from John Hart, who was born at Witney, in Oxfordshire,

* Stephen Hart : See the " Genealogical History of Deacon Stephen Hart and hia
descendants, 1632-1875." By Alfred Andrews, New Britain, Conn. (Hartford : Lock-
wood, Brainard, and Co. 1875.)

HAR. [part III. jtiT

England, on the 16th of November, 1651, and who went to America with
William Penn. He was a Quaker preacher of note, and settled near
Philadelphia. He was elected a member of the Assembly for the county
of Philadelphia, and took his seat therein on the 12th March, 1683. He
died at his residence in Warminster, in Sept., 1714, in the 63rd year of
his age. From that John Hart is descended General W. AV. Hart-Davis,
of Doylestown, Pennsylvania, living in 1883. All things considered, we
are of opinion that the above mentioned Stephen Hart, the Deacon;
Stephen Harte, of Westmill, in Hertfordshire, England ; and John Hart,
the celebrated Quaker preacher, were all of the same stock and of Irish

Another eminent branch of the '' Hart" family in America is that
descended from Edward Hart, of Hopewell township, formerly in
Hunterdon county, New Jersey, who fought under Wolfe on the Heights
of Abraham (Quebec). His son John Hart (see NotCjt " Independence,"
p. 76, ante) was one of the Signatories who, on the 4th of July, 1776,
signed the famous "Declaration of American Independence;" and is
still remembered in America as :

'' Honest John Hart."

This John was born at Hopewell, N J., in 1715 ;• and, in 1774, was first
elected to the General Congress, at Philadelphia. New Jersey was soon
invaded by the British Army, who devastated Mr. Hart's estate, and made
special exertions to take him prisoner. He, however, frustrated their
designs, by wandering through the woods from cottage to cottage, and from
cave to cave, constantly hunted by the English soldiery ; so that he never
ventured to sleep in the same place twice in succession. The capture of
the Hessians by General Washington put an end to that state of things :
Mr. Hart was enabled to return to his estate, on which he passed the
remainder of his life. He had two sons in the War of the Revolution :
Edward, and Daniel ; and three of his sons (supposed to be Jesse,
Nathaniel, and John) acted as General Washington's guides while he was
campaigning in New Jersey.

The said John Hart married Deborah Scudder (who died on the 26th
October, 1776), and, according to entries in his writing in the Family
Bible, the followinsf were their children :

1. Sarah,

was in 1882 a prominent merchant in Murray Street, New York City.
Susannah m. Major Polhemus, an Officer of the Revolution, and was the
mother of Mrs. Kurts. Deborah m. Joseph Ott. Daniel went to Virginia.

Joseph Hart, a. grandson of the said John Hart, was in 1874 living
on the top of Rich Mountain, in West Virginia ; and H. S. Hart, of


HAR. 475

IJircleville, 'Kansas, living in 1874, was a great-grandson of John, the
Signer of the Declaration. The said John's personal appearance waS; it is
•ecorded, very prepossessing : he was tall and straight, with black hair
md dark complexion. The time of his death has been variously stated
oy different writers : Sanderson, in his " Lives of the Signers," puts it in
the year 1780 ; others make the time 1778 ; but we believe we are correct
in saying the true time is the 11th of May, 1779.

There is a Monument erected to his memory at Hopewell, New
Jersey, on the Front of which are the words : " John Hart, a Signer of
American Independence, July 4, 1776;" on its Right side, the words:
'* Erected ... by the State of New Jersey, by Act Approved,
April 5, 1865 ;" on its Left side, the words : " First Speaker of Assembly,
August 27, 1776," and "Member of the Committee of Safety, 1775-1776;"
on the Bear, the words: "Honor the Patriot's Grave." Around the
Monument are the graves of those who were his companions and

Patrick Hart, of Youngstowu, Ohio, living in 1877, and Thomas
Hart, living in 1880, near Courtland, Decalb county, Illinois, are (see the
" O'Hart" pedigree) members of our own family.

There is yet another branch of the " Hart" family located in Pittston,
Pennsylvania, which we cannot connect with any of the foregoing families,
but which, judging by its coat of arms, is, in our opinion, a branch of our
own family. We can trace the descent of that branch only from Jeremiah*
Hart, who when a young man lived in Duchess County, State of New
York ; removed to Saratoga County in said State, there married, owned
a large farm, and lived and died. He had two elder brothers — 1. John,
2. Eichard : that John had a son John, both of whom held commissions
in the English Army during the American Revolution, after which the
younger John came to reside in England ; Jeremiah remained faithful to the
American cause ; but we have learned nothing of Richard and his descen-
dants. Commencing with Jeremiah the following is the descent from him;

1. Jeremiah Hart, of Saratoga
County, State of New York, b. circa
1750 ; m. Abigail Purcell (nde
Macomber), and had five sons and
three daughters — 1. John, 2.
Stephen, 3. Reuben, 4. Philip,
5. Jeremiah, 1 Hannah, 2. Sarah,
3. Phebe. He died at Stillwater.
Saratago county, N.Y., about 1825.

2. Philip : the fourth son of
Jeremiah ; b. about 1775 ; m.
Anna, dau. of Joseph Seeley and

Millard, and had five sons and

four daughters — 1. Philip, 2.
