      Coke, 6.

      [This name is spelled in the Virginia records, variously Hardidge and Hardich. The testator, who was born about 1618, came early to Maryland, where he received pay as a soldier in 1642 and bore an active part in the disturbances of Richard Ingle, in 1645, and was evidently of the Puritan party. He is then described as a tailor. He shortly after removed to Virginia and settled in Westmoreland county. He accumulated a large estate. He married (I) Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas Sturman, formerly of Maryland and afterwards of Westmoreland, and (2) before May 16, 1659, Margaret, daughter of Col Nathaniel Pope, of Westmoreland county. He probably had no issue by second marriage. William and Elizabeth (Sturman) Hardidge had a son William Hardidge, of Westmoreland county, who was member of the House of Burgesses 1685, 1686, 1688, 1691, 1692 and 1693. He married Frances it seems probable that she was the daughter of Dr. Thomas Gerrard, and that she had previously married (I) Col. Thomas Speke, (2) Col. Valentine Peyton, (3) Captain John Appleton. They had one child and heiress, Elizabeth Hardidge, born 1678, died February 25, 1722, who married Col. Henry Ashton. Her tomb remains at "Booth's," originally an Hardidge estate in Westmoreland county.]

      As Thomas Pope willed to his wife, Joanna, certain property called Noble's Corner in Barton Regis in Gloucester County, I think it probable that their home was really there and that their other children were baptized and buried there.
      Mr. Thorold called my attention to a singularly marked slab within the church and which I take to mark the grave of one of Thomas Pope's brothers-in-law. This inscription covers about twenty inches of the slab and is in all caps, though some are larger than others. It reads: "Heare lyeth
      the body of Lieutenant Corranall William Hardigh of Vergenia, who departed this naterall life the 22 day of November, 1668, aged 46 yeares."
      The stone cutter outlined the "R" in "Hardigh," but failed to cut in the tail, thus causing it to be misread as a "P," and it was so published in the church history
