237. GEORGE HANSBROUGH: (6 Peter) Born in Stafford on September 29, 1768. According to an agreement dated November 14, 1785, George, then 17 years of age, was apprenticed to James Stigler, a blacksmith and wheelwright of Fauquier, until he was 21 years of age. The agreement provided that George should not enter any tippling house or tavern, etc., while Stigler agreed to provide him food, clothing, washing, lodging, etc. For some unknown reason, George did not remain with Stigler a year, for on July 10, 1786, he was apprenticed, until he was 21 years of age, to Charles Ralls, of Stafford, to learn the coach and chain making business.
