William Yardly came to the northern part of Dublin, which is now a part of Harrisville, from England, in 1776, and located on the farm now owned by his grandson, George. He was a farmer, married Sarah Twitchell, and reared a family of six children. He died in June, 1805. His son William was born here in 1784, married Rhoda Brooks, reared a family of nine children, five of whom are now living, and died in 1858. Two sons, George and John, and one daughter, Mrs. Persia Beals, still reside in town.
