Joan Hackworth Weir
Great Great Grand daughter of Timothy Hackworth
JOHN WESLEY HACKWORTH
John Wesley Hackworth was Timothy Hackworth's son and an engineer and inventor himself. He was also Joan Hackworth Weir's great grand father. This site is a work in progress, and, sourced largely from Joan's archives, tells John's history. John grew up assisting his father when Timothy was Superintendent of the Stockton and Darlington Railway, finally developing his own factory in Darlington. There is not much information on the internet and so this site will be an important source.
