Early Origins of the Hartee family
The surname Hartee was first found in Kent
where the first record of the name was Benedict de Herty who was listed in the Feet of Fines in Kent
in 1241. Manuesimus de Herty was listed in the Rotuli Hundredorum
of 1272. The Isle of Harty dates back to Roman times and is today called the Isle of Sheppy.

The church has no electricity or running water but dates back to the 11th century.

Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Hartee include Harty, Hartie, Hartee and others.

Migration of the Hartee family to the New World and Oceana
Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Hartee or a variant listed above: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe. Migrants settled in the eastern seaboard from Newfoundland, to Maine, to Virginia, the Carolinas, and to the islands..
