Immigration sketch by Terry Hardy

Contributor: finnsh Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Frederick Hardy, elder brother of James and his half brother of Thomas Tedder Hardy, and his family were the last of the Hardy family to leave England for a pioneering life in America. Frederick’s wife, Emma (formerly Emma Game of Bishops Stortford, Hertfordshire) had been baptised into the faith in August 1855 at the age of 27yrs. by her half brother in law, Thomas Tedder Hardy, in August 1855 in the Edmonton Branch of the London Conference and she was confirmed the same day. This is further evidence that Thomas was most likely the first of the Hardy family to become a Mormon and an early ‘driving force’. Certainly the families would all have known each other: they were born and grew up in the same quiet rural part of England. Frederick and family had lived in Edmonton, then still almost a village, on the outskirts of London for many years – since leaving Much Hadham and before he and Emma were married, on 23rd. November 1855 at All Saints Church, Edmonton. Until their departure for America, Frederick had been carrying on the now established family tradition of shoemaker and Cordwainer and it is probable that they lived in the area, Duck Lane, for many years. Sarah Hardy, Frederick’s spinster sister had also lived with them at one time. The name of ‘Duck Lane’ was apposite as it was prone to flooding in heavy rains! Frederick Hardy with wife Emma and their 19yr old son Frederick James, sailed for America from Liverpool on 28th. June 1876 and were lucky to have made the still hazardous Atlantic crossing in an early, single screw, straight stem steam ship, the Idaho. This single funnel ship of 3,132 gross ton and built in 1869, was rigged for sail, had two masts and was relatively fast; it had a top speed of 11 knots. The family arrived in New York 12 days after leaving the river Mersey, on Monday July 10th. at pier 46 in South Manhattan, the immigration terminal of “Castle Gardens” having suffered a serious fire the previous night!

Life timeline of Frederick Hardy

Frederick Hardy was born on 4 Dec 1829
Frederick Hardy was 2 years old when Charles Darwin embarks on his journey aboard HMS Beagle, during which he will begin to formulate his theory of evolution. Charles Robert Darwin, was an English naturalist, geologist and biologist, best known for his contributions to the science of evolution. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors and, in a joint publication with Alfred Russel Wallace, introduced his scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection, in which the struggle for existence has a similar effect to the artificial selection involved in selective breeding.
Frederick Hardy was 11 years old when Samuel Morse receives the patent for the telegraph. Samuel Finley Breese Morse was an American painter and inventor. After having established his reputation as a portrait painter, in his middle age Morse contributed to the invention of a single-wire telegraph system based on European telegraphs. He was a co-developer of the Morse code and helped to develop the commercial use of telegraphy.
Frederick Hardy was 30 years old when Petroleum is discovered in Titusville, Pennsylvania leading to the world's first commercially successful oil well. Petroleum is a naturally occurring, yellow-to-black liquid found in geological formations beneath the Earth's surface. It is commonly refined into various types of fuels. Components of petroleum are separated using a technique called fractional distillation, i.e. separation of a liquid mixture into fractions differing in boiling point by means of distillation, typically using a fractionating column.
Frederick Hardy was 39 years old when Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton founded the National Woman Suffrage Association, breaking away from the American Equal Rights Association which they had also previously founded. Susan B. Anthony was an American social reformer and women's rights activist who played a pivotal role in the women's suffrage movement. Born into a Quaker family committed to social equality, she collected anti-slavery petitions at the age of 17. In 1856, she became the New York state agent for the American Anti-Slavery Society.
Frederick Hardy was 45 years old when Winston Churchill, English colonel, journalist, and politician, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Nobel Prize laureate (d. 1965) Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill was a British politician, army officer, and writer, who was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. As Prime Minister, Churchill led Britain to victory in the Second World War. Churchill represented five constituencies during his career as Member of Parliament (MP). Ideologically an economic liberal and British imperialist, he began and ended his parliamentary career as a member of the Conservative Party, which he led from 1940 to 1955, but for twenty years from 1904 he was a prominent member of the Liberal Party.
Frederick Hardy was 56 years old when Louis Pasteur successfully tests his vaccine against rabies on Joseph Meister, a boy who was bitten by a rabid dog. Louis Pasteur was a French biologist, microbiologist and chemist renowned for his discoveries of the principles of vaccination, microbial fermentation and pasteurization. He is remembered for his remarkable breakthroughs in the causes and prevention of diseases, and his discoveries have saved many lives ever since. He reduced mortality from puerperal fever, and created the first vaccines for rabies and anthrax. His medical discoveries provided direct support for the germ theory of disease and its application in clinical medicine. He is best known to the general public for his invention of the technique of treating milk and wine to stop bacterial contamination, a process now called pasteurization. He is regarded as one of the three main founders of bacteriology, together with Ferdinand Cohn and Robert Koch, and is popularly known as the "father of microbiology".
Frederick Hardy died on 26 Nov 1890 at the age of 61
