About Durgin & Hartley
Earliest Durgin in North America: William Durgin I first  appears as taxed in Oyster River Colony 
(Durham), NH 1663. Probably indentured, that would make his arrival about 1655/56. 
A debt from indenturing usually took 7-8 yrs to repay a benefactor. Note: His first wife was Martha 
(Unk). Not the Martha Cross of Ipswich, MA who was also married to a William Durgin. Our William 
seems to have been uneducated as he signed documents with his mark, usually an X. The William of 
Ipswich, MA was educated as noted by his ability to read, write and and run the business of the 
merchant who was the father of Martha Cross.
 
Note: To those who persist that William of Ipswich was the same person. It was 1660's North 
America. Back then the distance between the two colony settlements would be quite an obstacle to 
overcome. Question: "Has anyone done an in depth research of William Durgin of Ipswich?" I suspect 
that many of the Durgins that appeared later in the southern States could be of his family lines. 

Mildred's heritage & family lines. 
Earliest known: Daniel Hartley; 1st mentioned in 1805. His father probably 
arrived in Virginia in the 1750's.
 
Ancestry: Hartleys, Matthews and Suttons et als. Began their migrations from Virginia, Maryland & 
Georgia. Some to the Carolinas, Tennessee, Florida. Then westward towards Alabama, Mississippi, 
Louisiana and Texas. These were great pioneers. Sadly many records are missing or difficult to 
access. Due, in part, to lack of or poor record keeping. During the Civil War many records were 
destroyed by advancing Union troops. Or were not able to be done due to the conflict.
 
Please Note: Family Bibles and other Family Records are a premium source of Ancestral information.
