238. ELIJAH HANSBROUGH: (6 Peter) Born in Stafford in 1775; died before August 27, 1849, when his will was recorded in the Fauquier County Court. He was a resident of Stafford until 1812, when in a deed he is spoken of as "of Fauauier." After his removal to Fauquier, he invested heavily in real estate. On November 9, 1812, he purchased 420 acres; on April 22, 1818, he purchased 218 acres; on October 10, 1821, he purchased 58 acres and 152 acres; 65 ½ acres were purchased on December 22, 1826; 11 acres on December 25, 1826; and 179 ½ acres in Stafford and Fauquier on October 15, 1830. By his will, dated March 1, 1848, Elijah left his estate to be divided among his 11 children. According to the inventory and appraisement of his personal estate, it was valued at $30,894.88. There is a long and interesting preamble to his will, which also states that he was in the 74th year of his age. He mentions his children all by name, but no mention is made of his wife so it is presumed that she predeceased him. From the marriage licenses of several of his children, however, we learn that her christian name was Margaret. There is also some evidence that she May have been his second wife. His first wife was probably Mary Starke, and she may have been the mother of some of his 11 children. Children (HANSBROUGH) 283. DAVID - born 1819. 284. Elijah - NFI. 285. JONATHAN - 286.
