Hastwell, Richard


I have not been able to identify Richard in online records. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

  • Rosemary,
    Many thanks for proving the additional information about Richard.
    In response to your question, no I am not a relative.

  • I don’t know if you are still looking for Richard Hatswell. I can fill in some gaps for you in 1875 he was at south Stainmore preaching. That is possibly the last time he did so. Richard born 1847 married in 1871. According to the 1871 census he is living with his family on the Main Street Kirkby Stephen. His occupation is Grocer. 1891 he is also a post master. Finally 1901 he is a grocer and provision dealer. He died in 1904. There is a final newspaper dated 21st October 1904 Which explains that he was a pioneer of the making of butter. (I can’t find anything more about this. ) Then the coup de grase for you is that he was originally educated for the Primitive Methodist ministry. Hope this helps. Are you a relative of his?
