There are several Wellingtons in England, but the reference to Lord Hill
strongly suggests Wellington, Shropshire is intended.
Are you certain that the word in the letter was "Hadwall" as there is a
"Hadnall" in Shropshire, and I am not aware of a "Hadwall"?
I cannot help you with your specific enquiry, sorry, but I hope these
comments are of help.
