bullet  Noted events in his life were:

2. Religion: Quaker.

3. Story. 1059 From the Public Record Office, Four Courts, Dublin, Ireland, we learn of Simon Hadley who lived in Kings County, Ireland. He was an Englishman, and an officer in the English Army. He later settled in Ireland. He and his wife Catherine seem to have been the first of the Hadley family to join the Society of Friends. They were members of Moate Meeting, County West Meath. From the minutes of this meeting we learn that Simon apologized to his Meeting for allowing his son Simon too many liberties. He owned an Iron foundry in Kings County, Ireland, and also had fishery property in Dublin. After his first wife Catherine died, he married Elizabeth. He was 70 years of age at the time of his second marriage and was disowned by the Quakers for marrying out of meeting.

4. Story. 1064 Kings County, Ireland, does not exist anymore. It is now called Offalay. Its principal city is Tullamore, situated about 50 miles due west of Dublin. 15 miles northwest of Tullamore, just across the border in County West Meath, lies Moate. Ballynakill, mentioned as Simon's residence in a document, is located in the western part of present day County West Meath, about 10 miles northwest of Moate.

5. Story. 1065 Simon and Catherine had children Simon, John, Elizabeth, and Jane. All but Simon stayed in Ireland.

6. Story. 1066 From a record in the Office of Arms, Dublin Castle, we learn that Simon died in 1711. Administration of his property was granted 6 June 1711 to his widow Elizabeth Hadley and to his children John Hadley, Elizabeth Miller, and Jane Kiernan. No mention is made of his son Simon, who had probably already received his share of the estate in preparation for his departure for America.

7. Story. Birthplace County Kings, Ireland, and deathplace County West Meath, Ireland, parents James Hadley and Jane Rosewell from LDS Ancestry File.

8. Story. A probably inaccurate pedigree for Simon shows his father as James Hadley, married to Lady Jane ROSWELL. James' father was James Hadley, married to Friedeswide MATTHEW. James' father was Richard Hadley, married to Lady Philipa AUDLEY. Her father was Sir Humphrey AUDLEY, married to Lady Elizabeth COURTENAY. Her father was Sir Philip Courtenay, married to Elizabeth HUNGERFORD. Philip's father was John de Courtenay. John's father was Lord Phillip de Courtenay, married to Ann Margaret, daughter of Sir Thomas Wake. Phillip's father was Lord Hugh de Courtenay, married to Elizabeth daughter of Lord Torbrian. Hugh's father was Hugh de Courtenay, Earl of Devon, married to Margaret de Bohun. Her father was Lord Humphrey Bohun, married to Lady Elizabeth PLANTAGENET. Her father was Edward I, King of England, and her mother was Eleanor of Castile. No supporting evidence is given for this lineage. (Harris/Lindley family folder in Pittsboro library)
