Received 17th October 2006

My great grandmother was Harriet Hartwell born about 1860. Her father was James Hartwell born about 1811. Thomas Hartwell (who married Naomi) was his brother. Their parents were John Hartwell and Sarah Peckover. Most of the Hartwell girls and ladies were Lacemakers. According to the 1840 census all of the Hartwell's listed (as far as I can make out), were either children or grandchildren of John and Sarah, but I might be wrong! John and Sarah are listed as coming from Bedfordshire. Do you know where in Bedfordshire they came from?
best wishes,
