John Heckels' Genealogy Interests

HECKELS (or HECKLES)

I’m interested in the occurrence of Heckels anywhere in the world at any time. The earliest record we have is from Leicestershire in 1548 but most instances occur in North East England after 1625. Other branches of the family became established in Cumberland and Yorkshire.

Our earliest detailed records date from the marriage of George Heckles to Rebbecca Harrison in 1750 at All Saints Church, Newcastle on Tyne. It is their sons George2 (born 1753) and Richard (born 1764) who are the direct ancestors of all the Heckels family members originating from North East England.

George Heckels2 married Isabella Stamp in Wallsend in 1776, their children born 1776-1785 were Thomas, Rebecca, George3 and Richard. George Heckels3 married Mary Huggup in Longbenton. After living in Jarrow the family moved to South Shields, they had a total of twelve children including John born in 1807. John Heckels married Ann Pearson in Tynemouth in 1832, they lived in South Shields all their lives and had a total of eight children, Albion Pearson, George, Thomas Bolton, Thompson Pearson, John William, Matthew, Joseph Septimus and Ann Pearson.

John William Heckels married Elizabeth Wigham in 1863, they lived in South Shields before moving to Burnhope, Co. Durham where John William became manager of the coal mine. They had a total of ten children, including Matthew Henry Heckels who married Alice Beattie.

The Cumberland branch of the family are descendants of Christopher Heckles and Arabella Waugh who married in 1790 at Farlam and their immediate descendants are found in the village of Dean.  No direct link has yet been established with the Newcastle branch of the family.

Some noteworthy members of the Heckels family (further details in preparation)

BARKER Barnard Castle, DUR 1827-1891

George Barker was born in 1716 at Forcett, North Yorkshire, the son of John Barker. George and his wife Elizabeth had three children born in Forcett between 1742 and 1748, Elizabeth, George2 and Henry. They then moved the short distance across the Tees to Whorlton Co. Durham, where seven further children John, Hannah, Sarah, Jane, George, Susan and Eleanor were born 1751-1764.

Henry Barker was born in Forcett in 1748. He became a mason and in 1776 he married Jane Wilson at the parish church of St. Mary Whorlton. They had six children Ann, Robert, Ann II, Jane, Mary, George3 and Elizabeth all born in Whorlton 1777-1799 before George died in 1801 from "consumption", Jane lived until 1839 when she died at the age eighty five.

George Barker3 was born in Whorlton in 1794. In 1815 he married Ann Bell at St. Mary, Barnard Castle. At he time of their marriage George was recorded as a farmer from Brignall, North Yorkshire. It was there that their first children Robert, Elizabeth, Jane, Mary Ann, Eleanor and Maria were born 1816-1826. Around 1818 the family moved to Barnard Castle where George developed a slate dealing business while continuing his farming. Further children Hannah, Isabella, Henry, Eliza, Isabella, George I and George II were born 1828-1838. Their fourteen child, Robert was born in 1841 at Startforth, Yks. George's business prospered and he is believed to have owned a slate quarry. Ann died in 1868 and George then lived with his widowed daughter Elizabeth, who had previously married William Appleby, a farmer thirty nine years her senior. George died at her home in Newgate St., Barnard Castle in 1872.

Hannah Barker is something of a mystery. We know that she was the daughter of George born in the Barnard Castle area cir 1828, around the time that her parents were moving from Whorlton, but she is not recorded in the baptismal registers of either parish. In 1848 she is found to be living in Bishopwearmouth where she married Henry Yarrow. After living in Sunderland the family moved to Wednesbury, Staffordshire where they are recorded in the 1871 census. By 1881 Henry is recorded as a widower but no record of the civil registration of Hannah's death has yet been found.
