13 November 1818
He was buried on 13 November 1818 at Stourton, Wiltshire, England; Aged 66 yrs.
Other information; Marriage banns were called for Briant HARTGILL and Ann OWEN (or OPEN) in 1750 but there is no available record of the marriage. In fact, there is no record of Briant HARTGILL again. It is circumstantial evidence that suggests that Briant and Ann were the parents of John HARTGILL alias OWEN. At this time (prior to 1754) all that was required for a legal marriage was the consent of both parties and evidence of consummation, and of course a baby was evidence. So if John HARTGILL alias OWEN was born of these parents, he would have been considered by some as legitimate, but by others as illegitimate, since church marriage was certainly the norm and the preferred method of marraige.
He was a Yeoman, and owner of several dwelling houses (see will).
He was also known as OWEN. At his marriage in 1780 he was recorded as John HARTGILL, in the Banns as HARTGILL alias OWEN. The signature was HARTGILL. At his children's baptisms in 1781 and 1782, he was recorded as John OWEN alias HARTGILL. His wife was buried as Betty HARTGILL. His daughter married as Elizabeth HARTGILL.

Hester HARTRY was born in 1767; There was a large family surnamed HARTRY (and variations) in Bruton at this time. She might be part of that family.
Lawrence & Rachel HARTRY had children baptised in Brewham in 1755 and 1757. Could she be a child of this couple? James & Susannah HARTREE had a son baptised in the Prebyterian Chapel in Bristol in 1775. It's another alternative.1
