Hack Family Genealogy

Details are available in an indexed file of Hack family births, baptisms, marriages, deaths and burials, where known. Tracing relationships is somewhat easier using an indented family tree. The first document excludes all persons known to be living, or who might possibly be living. The second document spans nine generations from William Hack and Ellen Terry of Froyle, who were married in 1684, and includes the names of a few living persons. If any family member would prefer that their name be kept private, please let me know via the Contact Form (click the link in the menu bar on the left).

The Chichester Hacks can be traced via the sometimes incomplete but generally reliable (see warning below) Quaker birth, marriage and burial records back to the marriage of James Hack and Priscilla Hayllar in 1757. After 1837 official government indices are available complemented by newspaper announcements. However, tracing the family before 1757 poses several difficulties.
