      Incidentally, Shirley, I agree that George Hardy 3rd was probably the one who married Lucy Dent. In the records, it shows "George Hardy 3rd" in two probate documents that I know of, both before the first George Hardy died before 13 Feb 1758. After that (including in the 26 Jun 1758 probate of his uncle William Hardy), he becomes "George Hardy, Jr.". I May be wrong about that, but all of the docs I've seen follow that pattern.
