  • ID: I22836
  • Name: John HARDY , Alderman of London 1 2
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: BEF 1504 in Wetwang, Driffield, Yorkshire East Riding, England
  • Birth: ABT 1510 2
  • Death: 1543 in London, Middlesex, England 2
  • Note:
    In mid 1500 Sir John de Hardy was Lord Mayor of London. He was descended from Sir John de Hardy of Bedfordshire and Lady Margaret, d/o Michael de la Pole, a younger s/o the Earl of Suffolk. Sir John, Lord Mayor, m. Lady Mary de Stanley, whose ancestry included lords, ladies, the Duke of Earl & of Westmoreland. Through their parentage on the distaff side, the Hardys could thus trace their lineage to King Edward. Sir John de Hardy, Lord Mayor of London, thus gave the future Hardys of this Union claim to royal blood, no matter how distant & diluted. ("Our Fathers' Fields" by James Everett Kibler, 1998 [A Southern Story]).

    Note: I do not agree with Michael de la Pole being a "younger s/o the Earl of Suffolk". See notes under Margaret de la Pole.

    I have previously stated in this group that a John Hardy was never Mayor of London and that a person of that name was an Alderman of London only, from 1524 to 1535, and that he had never been knighted.

    Now researching the Aldermen of the City of London

    Note: 1524 seems a little early, given John's birth year of 1510. Given that his wife Mary was born before 1504 (father died in 1503), I believe that he was born closer to 1504.
