History and Cemetery Listings

By Gary Allen Lull -Updated 02/14/2008

This site is copy right as part of a greater family site collection of connections.

Under NO circumstances should you EVER touch a stone or alter its appearance with chemicals,
or any substances! This will permanently deface and or start a destructive cycle/reaction of the stone!!
INSTEAD, to gather information on a stone which is hard to read, do the following:

1. Spray a large piece of cardboard with Silver paint
2. Wrap with cellophane and tape it.
3. Set it up like an easel at an angle to reflect light onto the stone so that the words cast shadows and make it easier to photograph
4. Do NOT place coins of any kinds on the stones because the copper with react with the stone
5. Do NOT do rubbings, chemicals will destroy the stone over time
6. Do NOT scrub, or sand the face! This is a totally destructive method!
7. Do NOT use shaving cream, this also reacts with the stone!
8. ASK or talk to the Cemetery officials to assist you with your efforts- They know how to properly re-etch and clean the stones.

Hartland Town Clerk:
P.O Box 349 - Hartland, VT 05048

Please consider Hartland Historical Society 

rather than the town clerk office for your genealogy questions.

            Hartland was actually chartered under the name of Hertford on July 10, 1761 by Governor Bennington Wentworth of New Hampshire to Samuel Hunt and his associates. On June 15, 1782 the town name was changed to Waterford but two days later the name was changed to Hartland. The town of Hartland has three villages called Hartland Three Corners, Hartland Four Corners and North Hartland. Part of the boundary was lost during these changes, found and recorded later required the original charter to re-record this mistake on the back of the original charter as found by Gary A. Lull in its archive vault. I have recorded this error on the net for your review under Hartland Historical Society Web page.

            It was recorded that the first settler of Hartland was Timothy Lull who arrived from Dummerson in May, 1763. He would remain in Hartland for the rest of his life where he died at the age of 81. He would raise 12 children and his son Timothy Lull Jr. was the first male child born in Hartland in December of 1764.

            The first town meeting took place on March 11, 1767 and Oliver Willard was chosen moderator and supervisor; Capt. Zadock Wright and Lt. Joel Matthews, assessors; Timothy Lull, treasurer; Ensign Laiton and Lt. Joel Mathews, overseers of highways; Oliver Willard and Joseph Harwood, overseers of poor; Nathan Call, collector; Capt. Zadock Wright, Timothy Lull, Ebenezer Call and Joel Matthews, constables.

            At a town meeting on March 10, 1778, Dr. Paul Spooner was chosen moderator and town clerk; Lt. Jonathan Burk, Ensign Daniel Spooner and Zebulon Lee, selectman; Capt. Aaron Willard, constable; Capt Aaron Willard, Dr. Paul Spooner and Robert Morrison, assessors.

Hartland in the American Revolution

On March 24, 1778 William Gallup was made commissioner of confiscated lands. The lands that were confiscated belong to those people who had remained loyal to England during the war, commonly known as Tories. Gallup appointed Matthias Rust and Charles Spaulding appraisers, to conduct sales. They issued the following report: "We, the subscribers, being appointed by William Gallup, of Hartland, in the State of Vermont, to appraise certain lots, or parcels, of land belonging to Whitehead Hicks, (and gone over to the enemy,) One lot, the property of Sturtevant, No. 6, second range, 300 acres, price 6 shillings per acre, purchased by John Sumner and Nehemiah Liscomb." Whitehead Hicks, the mayor of New York, lost about 1,422 acres and the person called Sturtevant about 1,488 acres. From this sale Captain Gallup paid into the treasury more than 1,118 pounds.

            During my 44 years on genealogy / researching surnames, my research located about 38 names of men and women who came to America, in Ipswich, Massachusetts. Of these many were never recorded as Pilgrims. If you can’t find your people listed in fleet logs, but have traced them as far back as very early 1600’s. Chances are they might be located here, or in Ipswich as fishermen / planters. The fishermen people were aboard ships that came to Ipswich Massachusetts, in the years from 1601 to 1635. Of these 38 people a great many were never recorded in the Plymouth Fleets or the Sir Jonathan Winthrop 27 fleets from England or any other such type ships, to America, with exception their own, or as fisherman/planters. Of course of these, some accepted the requirement to pay dues to be part of the town organized citizens. This act of acceptation placed them within the town jurisdiction, as registered freemen.

          The people were called fisherman/planters of English, Dutch, French, Spanish and Portugal descendents as fishermen from all over the world called by those who settled after them as, “Fishermen/Planters.” They stayed to fish the New England Coastal waters first by ship and later on land. To prevent others from stealing their fishing claims, they built fishing structures and homes, speeding up their fishing ability to make money faster. They were under Sir Ferdinando Gorges at first, but later on revised with John Endicott with the Plymouth and Dorchester Act passed by the King of England. They stayed as fisherman - planters with their claims and homes, until other settlers who came later to Ipswich. By 1623 they had established homes or shelters to live in, 12 years before Jonathan Winthrop established the township of Ipswich in 1635.

          The people were led here to Ipswich, Massachusetts by Sir Ferdinando Gorges in 1601 in his ship called “The Gorges,” by his son Robert Gorges. Captain Robert Gorges brought to Ipswich in 1601 a man called, Sir William Jeffrey’s. Who also had a claim from the King of England? Here is where he stepped of the ship and made his claims of both banks of the river at locations bounded on the North and South of what is known as Little Neck in Ipswich, Mass. Many of these surnames located here in Hartland, and Weathersfield, are traceable back to Ipswich. Examples: Lull, also spelled as Llull, Llully, Lully, Lulie, LuLu, misspelled as Tully, sometimes as Hull, Full, Null, Low and Lowe. With exception that the Low name seemed to have its own identity as a surname, in Ipswich.

The fishermen / planters, as surnames found were; Tuttle, Heard, Knowlton, Brown, Cogswell, Perkins, Lord, Waite, Burnham, Gardner, Mason, Sargent, Sawyer, Gilbert, Tenney, Heardy, Smith, Emerson, Levett, Baker, Wise, Waters, Sutton, Waters, Lull, Furber, Blaidwell, Hook, Haines, Clark, Coles, Simpson, Howlett, Griggs, Gage, Lakeman, Gosmald, and Thorndike.
