Greetings :-)

I'm just starting off doing geneology work for my family - the Haddaways of Maryland. My family originally came from Talbot County (as best as I can see). I have my direct line traced back to Hugh Haddaway born in 1805, then I have other info on 1600's and 1700's haddaways that I'm not sure how they link. Any Haddaway info you have would be of great help.

Looking for relatives

I am working on the Hull line and Mary Haddaway was the first wife. Was Mary Haddaway's father Hugh and Mother, Molly Porter m 1798? Jesse's second wife was Anna Porter and I note the maiden name of Hugh's wifeis the same.?? Does any of this connect with your genealogy research? I seldom get here so reply to thanks

I have reason to believe Mary Haddaway m. Jesse Hull April 4 1809 d. aabt 1815 may have been Hugh Haddaway's daughter. Can you furnish any information about this? Your help would be very much appreciated.

Todd, I am the great granddaughter of Hugh Alfred and Martha Lucretia Haddaway. Hugh and Martha are buried in the methodist cemetery on Tilghman Island. In a near by lot is Hugh's father and grandfather - Daniel Haddaway. I don't know if this is the Hugh Haddaway line you are tracing. Lucretia

Surnames: Haddaway
Hugh Haddaway (1808; MD - Bef. 1860) was married to Mary Ann Sinclair. According to the outstanding researcher Charles M. Haddaway, Hugh is the son of Hugh Haddaway, Sr. (1778) and Polly Porter. While Charles does not name the parents of the elder Hugh, I believe them to be William Haddaway (1757-1807) and Elizabeth Harrison.

In the 1830 Talbot Co, Census, Hugh and Harrison Haddaway are living next door to each other, and their ages suggest that they are likely brothers. While Charles M. Haddaway III does not list parents for Hugh, he does list William & Elizabeth as the parents of Harrison. If Harrison and Hugh are brothers, then William & Elizabeth are obviously Hugh’s parents.

Furthermore, Harrison names a son Thomas Washington Haddaway (b. 1823). Your ancestor, Hugh Haddaway, Jr. (1808), will also name a son Thomas W. Hadaway (b. 1845), apparently in honor of his first cousin. In fact, in the 1860 Talbot Co, MD Census, the elder Thomas W. Haddaway is living next door to the family of the younger Thomas W. Haddaway, further solidifying my theory that Hugh (1778) and Harrison were brothers.

Assuming I’m correct about Hugh (1778) being the son of William (1757), then the rest of your family tree can be found on my Rootsweb postings. I have your family back to Rowland Haddaway (1607-1667), the Immigrant. Again, my postings have relied heavily on the fine work of Charles M. Haddaway III. Here’s the link:

I have done what I can as far as Census records go. However, you could help the family research in a way that I can’t. I am the group administrator for the Hadaway DNA Surname Project. We are trying to tie together the various Haddaway (Hadaway, Hathaway, Hattaway, etc.) families from across America, with the ultimate goal of identifying our European ancestry.

Here’s how it works. Fathers pass along their Y-Chromosomes to their sons relatively unchanged. If you compare the Y-DNA of a father and son, they would be most likely identical (unless there was a mutation). Because DNA mutates at a predictable rate, scientists can compare the DNA of men with the same last name and predict when or if they shared a common ancestor. Therefore, if you descend from Rowland Haddaway (1607-1667), and my Uncle Ben Hadaway also descends from the same family, then you and he would have similar DNA patterns.

The Hadaway DNA Surname Project has already determined that my Georgia family is related to the large Hattaway clan of Pitt Co, NC. If your DNA were to match ours, then we would prove that we’re all cousins. Please take a look at our Project web site:

I certainly hope you will consider joining our Project. It would go a long way to connect your family to Rowland, as I am looking for additional Talbot Co, MD participants. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding DNA or the testing. Just to let you know, it is completely painless and private.
