On this page this author had speculated on a 1743
Isle of Wight
County headright grantee listed as George Harding until a correspondent
in February 2017 showed me in a later grant the name was Hardy. Harding
was a misspelling. So that mistaken material has been removed, because
it isn't relevant to our I-M253 Hardin family. The mill at Lawnes Creek was known as Hardy's Mill in later years, I am told.
The 1642 grant containing the misspelling:
GEORG HARDING, 300 acs. upon the Easternmost side of Lawnes Creek, adj. Mr. Tuke & Alice Bennett. June 10, 1642. Transportation of 6 pers: Himselfe, Thomas Sabin, Thomas Hardy, Georg Netlefeild [or Northfield], James Strong, Jon. Lieth.

Benjamin Hardin and Sarah Stanley
his wife lived in Isle of Wight County in the 1600s. This is the same
Benjamin Hardin who is the American patriarch of the R1b1a2 haplotype.
(Bright blue color code at hhhdna.com.) The Hardins
traveled back and forth to England and Virginia for education,
marriages, and business reasons during the 1600s and 1700s. One of
their sons was Solomon Hardin (1703-1789). Virginia was his birthplace
and his only North Carolina home was in Duplin and Sampson County. A
son of Solomon was Abraham Hardin who was mentioned in Duplin/Sampson
land grants. Abraham was the father of Sion Hardin who in 1799 was
granted 80 acres in Sampson County, NC. Sion Hardin later
lived in Maury County, Tennessee before settling in Shelby County,Texas.
Thanks to Clay.Brewington at aol.com, a descendant of Sion Hardin, for this information in October 2014.
Harding Land Patents and Hardings Transported Into Surry, Isle of Wight, and Nearby Counties Within Tidewater Virginia, 1600s
Spelling was very creative in those days, and names such as Hardy and Harding may be interchanged. Some of the Hardins may or may not be ancestors of Samuel Hardin (will 1732, Brunswick County, Va.) and the I1a (Norse) Hardins. Appearance here does not mean there is a known connection to any Hardin family. Items are posted to help I1a researchers make connections. Your contributions of records and transcriptions are appreciated. Send to t.hard at intelec dot us.
