Here is what I know about the Hogarth line.  Most of the American Hogarth information presented is accurate.  The UK stuff is somewhat speculative.  I'm hoping that some other Hogarth may have a cross-over link that will get me a 'firm foothold' on the English parts of the family...

For example, Thomas Hogarth, who was born in Hinderwell, Yorkshire, lived in America and then returned to Yorkshire, I believe.  He also wrote poetry and I have a small book with two dozen or so of his poems.  The picture below was taken for a passport.

My grandmother, Florence Hilda Beale, was born Florence Hilda Hogarth.  She was the daughter of Thomas. I've boldfaced these entries in the tree, which can be viewed by clicking the button at the foot of this page.

John BAKER BroL 56 Sailor Born Eston, YKS.

The spelling of the wife and BroL birthplace is as it was on the census record, I think Egton is correct unless there were two such places, assuming, of course, that BroL is wife's brother. (Brother-in-law).

Rod's notes:
1). 'Eston' is likely to be correct. A place of this name exists SE of Middlesborough, not too far away.
2). Jane Hogarth, above, was formerly Jane Baker (src: MD) John Baker (BroL) is therefore her brother.

Generation No. 2


THOMAS HOGARTH was born June 25, 1867 in Hinderwell, Yorkshire, England2, and died (unknown) in USA. He married (1) MARY ELIZABETH WHITTERING February 25, 1900 in The Parish Church, Parish of Grosmont, County of York, daughter of JAMES WHITTERING and SARAH WHITTERING. He later married (2) ALICE (Unknown) in (Unknown).  Baptized on June 25, 1867, Hinderwell, Yorkshire, England. He had brown eyes and black hair and smoked a pipe. He may have been born in Port Mulgrave, along the coast, near Hinderwell. He was a coal miner in England and lived in Grosmont.

There is a possibility (according to Bill Hogarth) that he lived in North Port on the Thames or Newcastle upon Tyne. In 1881, at age 14, he worked as an iron miner in England, and lived with his parents. Wrote a book of poetry called: "Poems" which was published in Inidana, PA.  Probably written between 1910 and 1925. In the possession of Jack R. Beale in 1998.  Also have a poem he wrote that is typewritten on onionskin paper. Have a photo of him in Toronto, Ontario, Aug 17, 1921 when he was about in his mid-50's.  The family may have lived in Toronto.

There is a record of him in 'Delano's Domain: A History of Warren Delano's Mining Towns of Vintondale, Wehrum and Claghorn'. Wehrum was abandoned in about 1924. He worked for the Lackawanna Coal & Coke Mines in Wehrum. Thomas is listed in the Tax Assessor's Records as living in Wehrum, PA, working at the Lackawana Iron & Steel coal mine. In 1904, 1905 & 1909 he was a laborer. In 1908, he was a "Boss". In 1910 & 1911, he was a Mine Foreman. In 1909, he went into the coal mine to rescue trapped workers after an explosion that killed 21 miners. He is also listed in the "Mine Examinations" appendix as follows :-

"1909 - Mine Foreman Second Grade, Thomas Hogarth, Wehrum; and 1910 - Mine Foreman First Grade, Thomas Hogarth, Wehrum; and Fireboss, Thomas Hogarth."

There is also a record of a Thomas Buckingham, Frank Hogarth, John Beale, and George Jury (a family friend of the Beale's in Youngstown, and Republic Steel Chief Clerk), who worked as a clerk at the mines in 1907.  Bill Hogarth told me that Thomas moved back to England for a short time, then returned to America.  After his first wife died, he married Alice. Had a store in Cornersburg, OH., at the corner of 62 and Tippecanoe Road.  I have a copy of his naturalizaton paperwork that shows him living in Wehrum, PA when he was naturalized on August 18, 1908. With him were: Mary Elizabeth (wife), Florence Hilda (daughter), Frank Whittering (son), Nellie (daughter) and Roydon William (son).

There is a Thomas Hogarth Family listed on panel 149 of the Wall of Immigrants at Ellis Island. They were from Blackpool, Lancashire, England.

She was recorded as being a spinster in Grosmont, England. On May 23 1924, a death notice appeared in The Whitby Gazette, stating: 'April 24th, at Ohio, America, aged 56 years, Elizabeth, beloved wife of Mr. Thomas HOGGARTH, formerly of Grosmont, late in the employ of Mr. Chas Bagnall'.

Married in Grosmont in the presence of Francis Hogarth & Mary Anne Hogarth - could they be the wife and daughter of Charles Hogarth? There is a photo of the "Quay at Whitby" which is quite close to Grosmont.


i. JENNIE HOGARTH 4, b. Abt. 1890, Unknown; d. Unknown; m. FRANK BEDDIS, Unknown. I found a picture of her at about age 80 with the caption on the back "Jennie Hogarth Beddis". Guestimating the ages and birthdates made Thomas the correct age to be the father. May have lived in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. In talks with Bill Hogarth in 1999, I was told that she lived in Toronto.

Generation No. 3


NELL HOGARTH was born Abt. 1890 in Unknown, and died (unknown). She married VANE MCQUISTION. I'm not sure that Nell is the daughter of Thomas Hogarth. I found a picture of her at about age 80 with the caption on the back "Nell Hogarth Buckingham". Guestimating the ages and birthdates made Thomas the correct age to be the father. May have lived in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

I Found a card from "Aunt Nell, Jack & Elva Buckingham" on the occasion of John & Betty's marriage in 1942. According to Bill Hogarth, Nell married and her husband either died or left her early on. She lived in Youngstown, OH and is buried in Lake Park cemetery, Youngstown OH., along with many of the Hogarth's.

Notes for JOHN BEALE (GF):
He moved to Youngstown from Scranton, PA in 1912, when he was 24. Discharged from military service 8/17/1917 in Youngstown, OH (Serial # 4250). I think that this was a medical and family deferrment and, at that time, lived at 411 W Heney(?) Ave, Youngstown, OH. He may have lived near and gone to school in Wehrum, PA (near Altoona) in Cambria County. Traveled the mine country in a buckboard in Pennsylvania and distributed the Republic payroll. He carried a nickel plated 32-caliber revolver and a tear gas pen as protection. Jack Beale, while on a ski vacation, met a family in Altoona, PA., who knew of him.

He began work in 1912 (he was 24) at Republic Iron & Steel Corporation (predecessor of Republic Steel Corp.) in Youngstown, OH. Worked in accounting at Republic Steel Corp at The Republic Building, 335 Market Street, Youngstown, Ohio. On July 21, 1919 (age 31) he was promoted to Chief Clerk of the Open Hearth Works, replacing George Jurey, who had resigned. In May of 1937 (age 49) as the Works Accountant, he worked in Gadsden, AL on a Gulfsteel deal, then returned to Youngstown to manage the accounting for the Youngstown - Warren District. He received a 'well done' letter for his "fine co-operative spirit" from the Republic Comptroller.

In the summers of 1935/36 he took the family on vacation to an island in Lake Simcoe in Ontario, Canada called Georgiana Island. They mostly fished in the lake and socialized with guests like the Evans': Blanche, Bill, and Betty.

He was a diabetic and an early user of insulin treatments.  Church Affiliation: Pleasant Grove United Preysbeterian Church.  Retirement: January 1944, due to death caused by a heart attack.  He was buried in Lake Park Cemetery, Youngstown, OH on 7/3/1946.
