ResearchAndrew Saunders, 2016: I should like to offer you a theory for the family of Dewellah Hartley, who according to your records was born in Barnleigh Lancashire England in 1825 and married successively Robert Houghton in 1844 and Joshua Haughton in 1857, both in Winnebago Co. IL. I do not know how interested you are in the origins of those who married into the Houghton clan, but even if you are not, you might be amused to hear how I have arrived at my theory. I apologise in advance if I am wasting your time.In researching my ancestry I found a Great-Aunt Duella Bannister, born about 1864 in Hapton, Lancashire. She is the only Bannister I can find who has this given name, and I wondered where it came from. A Google search showed me that a duella was one-third of a Roman ounce, while Duella is an Italian and American surname, which also occurs in Science Fiction and
Fantasy. It is not extraordinarily rare as a given name in the US, but most uncommon in the UK. I did not find a famous person from whom it might have been taken.
I might have left it at that, had I not, to my great surprise, happened to notice another Duella in the 1871 British Census - living in the house next door to my Duella Bannister! This is Duella Nuttall, born about 1849 in Colne Lancashire, and she and her husband are living under the roof of one Henry Hartley, also born in Colne, about 1818. Since it appears not to be a family name among the Bannisters, I wondered if my Gt-Aunt Duella might have been named after the Duella next door. Duella Nuttall would have been
about 15 when Duella Bannister was born, so for this to be the case, she would have to be living in the same house, unmarried, probably with her parents; and perhaps her name Duella was inherited from her father's or mother's family. I did not know her mother's maiden name - but a search for Duella Hartley produced almost certainly this same Duella as the daughter of Henry Hartley in 1861 (living in the same place as in 1871, though the Bannisters had not yet arrived next door in 1861. My theory assumes that they had arrived by 1864 when Duella Bannister was born, but from your point of view the Bannisters now become irrelevant). I wondered if her name had come from an older related Duella Hartley. The LDS Family Search site produced only one born in the period 1800-1840 - Dewellah Hartley, born Barnleigh 1825: and Google located her on your website!
You are no doubt well ahead of me by now - except that your Dewellah came from Barnleigh. I can find no such place in England: but my Duella Hartley was born in Gt Marsden, now called Nelson, which is two or three miles north-east of Burnley Lancashire. In 1871 Duella and her family are living in Hapton, a couple of miles on the south-west side of Burnley. At least four different Duella Hartleys are recorded in the Censuses of the Burnley-Colne area from 1851 to 1901 (Colne is about 5 miles north-east of
Burnley), and I did not find any elsewhere in England. This tends to rule out an alternative theory, that Barnleigh Lancashire is an error for Barnsley Yorkshire, though there are plenty of Hartleys in Yorkshire. I propose, therefore, that Dewellah Hartley of Barnleigh could be another Duella of the Hartley clan from the Burnley area, and that her given
name and her birthplace have been corrupted in (probably oral) transmission. It may be possible, when the 1841 Census becomes available on the Ancestry website, to find here there, before she left for the USA, and perhaps still with her parents. I hope this is of interest, and that it is not old news! But if it is, or if you know it is not correct, I should be most interested to know more. My research is rough-and-ready (after all, we are not related), so I have no great emotional investment in it. Just idle curiosity. I have not answered the question where the name Duella came from: I have an idea that it might be a derivative of Jewel(la). If you have a view on that, I should love to hear it!
