Notes for Timothy HATHERLY
== Biography ==
Timothy Hatherly, son of Robert and Ellinor Hatherly, was baptized in Winkleigh, Devonshire on 29 Sept 1588.
He first travelled to New England in 1623 but returned to England. While in England between 1623 and 1631 Hatherly was one of the group of merchants who looked over, and frequently worsened, the business affairs of the planters at Plymouth. Then in 1631 he began a pattern, which lasted for four years, of coming to New England early in the year, and then returning to England after a few weeks or months. He is called merchant, and was initially more interested in trade than in settlement, but soon he began to make preparations to stay in New England permanently.
Hatherly came to New England in 1631 on the ''Friendship,'' landing at Boston 14 Jul 1631, carrying letters for Governor Winthrop. [Winthrop's Journal 1:70; Winthrop's Papers 3:27, 32; Bradford 227-233 (Bradford places the arrival of this ship in 1630, but his chronology for 1630 and 1631 is muddled, and most of the events placed by him in 1630 actually took place in 1631)]. Hatherly made a voyage downeast to look into his fishing affairs, and then in the fall returned to England [Bradford 231-33].
Winthrop reports on 5 Jun 1632 the arrival at Boston of the ''Charles'' of Barnstaple, with "Mr. Hatherly, the merchant," abord [WJ 1:94], and Bradford tells us under 1632 that 'Mr. Hatherly came over again this year ,but upon his own occasions, and began to make preparation to plant and dwell in the country" [Bradford 252].
He was back in England in December 1632, arriving 22 Feb 1632/3 at Plymouth on the ''William''. He returned soon to England. There is no record of his return to New England in 1634, but he first appears again on the Plymouth record 1 July 1634, becoming a permanent resident of the colony and joining the Scituate church 11 Jan 1634/5.
He was a feltmaker and merchant. Was referred to as gentleman in some records.
He m1 in St. Olave, Southwark, Surrey on 26 Dc 1614 Alice Collard; she died by 1634.
He m2 by 11 Jan 1634/5 Susan ______; she died after 22 Jan 1640/1 and perhaps after 3 Mar 1640/1, when she joined Timothy in a deed.
He m3 aft 1651 Lydia (Huckstep) Tilden, widow of Nathaniel Tilden; she died in 1672.
He died in Scituate 24 Oct 1666.
In the reorganization of Plymouth Colony's financial affairs in 1627, Timothy Hatherly became one of the four London Associates, and in the years ensuing figures frequently in colony business. Before coming over in 1634 to reside permanently at Scituate, Hatherly withdrew from this position, although he acted as agent for the other for the other three associates in acquiring a rant of land near the Massachusetts Bay line [Bradford 252, 304].
