From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hartshead is a village in Kirklees, West Yorkshire, England, 3.7 miles (6 km) west of Dewsbury[1] and near to Hartshead Moor.[2]

The village has pre-Norman Conquest origins; the Walton Cross is believed to be dated from the 11th century.[3]

The name Hartshead is derived from Herteshevet or Herteshede which is Scandinavian in origin and means Hill of Heort, Heort meaning Hart in modern English. [4]

Patrick Brontë met his wife, Maria Branwell (they met in Rawdon, some dozen or so miles away from Hartshead)[5] in 1811, when he was parson of Church of St Peter in Hartshead. They were married in Guiseley and became the parents of Anne, Branwell, Charlotte and Emily Brontë.[6]

Kirklees Hall is between Hartshead and the nearby village of Clifton.

Robin Hood is reputed to have been buried near Hartshead[7] or in the grounds of the nearby Kirklees Hall.[8] The exact place is not known, as the gravestone has been moved at least 3 times.
