Re: Hathway Family Glouchestershire, UK. 1833
Hi there Walmer -
Before you get excited I am not a descendant of your Edward, however, I am the g3 grandaughter descended from a Bethia believed to be Hathway whose grandfather and greatgrandfather were both Edwards going back to the 1600`s in Winterbourne (Frampton Cotterell) also just outside Bristol as is Bitton.Thought there might be a connection as Bethia`s uncle was also an Edward so it is definitely a family name.
According, to a member of my family who still lives in the area there are a lot of Hathways still living there, to this day.My grandmother and her family come from Bitton also, and I can go way back again to the 1600`s - the name is Cryer.Do we have a connection there even.
