1. WILLIAM HACKER
 William/Wilheim Hacker/ Hackardt was born Abt. 1498 in Dresden, Saxony, and died Abt. 1528 in London, England

Wilhelm Heckardt was the first born of his parents, and therefore inherited their large and extensive estates. In early manhood he espoused the cause of the Reformation as taught by Luther and his coadjutors. He was therefore compelled to flee the country, and he lost his entire estate, which reduced him to beggary. He went to London and began preaching the Reformation, but the Bishop in 1527 apprehended him, preferred charges, had him tortured, and upon his refusal to renounce his religion he was placed on the rack. He died soon after in prison.
This proceeding was had under Henry VIII, by the orders of Sir Thomas Moore.

Col. Francis Hacker, was the Drill officer and Commander of Cromwell's Iron-Side Brigade, and led it in many a hard fought battle during the commonwealth of England. During the imprisonment of Charles I, Col. Hacker had command of troops that kept guard over the King, and led that unhappy Monarch to the scaffold at his execution. One of the first acts of Parliament, after the restoration of the monarchy was the bill of attainder against those who had taken part in the condemnation and execution of King Charles I, which was to extend to them and their posterity forever. Under this act, Col. Hacker was arrested, tried and put to death; in 1860. The descendants of Col. Hacker fled to Holland and thence to America, settling in Virginia, near Winchester, in the Shenandoah Valley.

I have two accounts of how William arrived here. They are both plausible, but the second account is from a letter written by William's Great Grandson John.
Found guilty for stealing and shipped from England to America on October 28,1730 after a night of drinking and stealing the ducks, sent on ship "Forward". William Hacker arrived as a convict, at South Potomac, Virginia, aboard the "Forward" on January 16,1730/31.

William was convicted at Old Bailey Sessions in April,1730,of stealing four cocks, seventeen hens, five drakes, and five ducks belonging to Christopher Wilson. His sentence ended May 21,1738 and he married Ann Dillion, shortly afterward.

He married Anne Turner Dillon May 21, 1738 in Overwharton Parish, Stafford County, Virginia. She was born in 1707 in Northern Ireland then came to Stafford County, Virginia (may have been sold to servitude to a Dillon family or adopted??), and died 1803 in Hacker's Creek, Virginia (Morrison Cemetery).

Ann was transported about three years before William and was known as Ann Turner. She probably married before a Dillon before she married William Hacker
