Try clicking on "Search" at the top right of the screen and then click on "search all trees". Put this name into the search box and see if anyone on Genes has this person in their tree. You can then send the tree owner a private message directly.

EDIT - I have just checked and there is at least one other person with William Hartley born 1845 in Hackney in their tree.
