1.JOHN HANBURY: (See page 4) Born in England about 1615. His father was Jonas Hanbury of Beanhall and his mother was Adrain Cash, "a Dutch woman." John apparently had considerable money, since he inherited £100 from his uncle, Sir John Hanbury of Kelmarsh. In addition he sold some property in Feckenham, England, before going to Virginia. He is known to have gone beyond the seas, and the records of Bristol, England, show that he left that port for Virginia in 1639. The only record found in Virginia is that John Hanbury owned some land in Lower Norfolk County, in 1691. No record is known of any other John Hanbury coming to Virginia in the 1600s. John is believed to have married a woman, whose family name was Morris, in Virginia, probably about 1645. They apparently had one and perhaps two sons.

Children (HANBURY) 2. NICHOLAS - probably born about 1650.
