7. MORIAS HANSBROUGH: (4 Peter) Born in Stafford County, Virginia, about 1725; died in King George County in 1800. The first mention of him is on November 10, 1757, when he was granted a patent on 47 acres in Albermale, on both sides of Rich Cove Creek, adjoining John Burn's land. On June 26, 1760, Isaac Judd and Lettie, his wife, sold "Morias Hansbrough of the County of Stafford, carpenter," 105 acres, being part of the 825 acre tract granted the said Judd by the "Proprietors for the Northern Neck," situated on the south side of Cannon's Run, together with houses, etc., the consideration being £20. In the Minute Book of Culpeper for 1763-64 (pp 343, 381, and 434), there is record of a suit by Morias Hansbrough, Plt., against Henry Elly, Deft. In the case. On October 24, 1768, "Morias Hansbrough, Millwright, and Jane, his wife, of the County of Stafford and the Parish of Overwharton," sold the above mentioned 105 acres "lying in Fauquier and Hamilton Parish on the branch of Aquai called Cannon Run' to "John Innas, planter of the same county and parish" for £20, current money of Virginia. In Ledger G of the accounts of Allison, a merchant of Falmouth, "Morias Hansbrough, mill wright - Stafford," is debited in 1768, "to cash paid Cuthbert Bullet - lawyer fee £2.9.0. The will of John Brahan, probated in Fauquier County Court, on November 27, 1775, was witnessed by Morias Hansbrough. On October 28, 1776, John Ennes and Mary, his wife, deeded back to Morias Hansbrough, of Stafford, mill wright, the 105 acres lying on the branch of Cannon's Run, the consideration being £30. On August 23, 1779, Morias Hansbrough, mill wright, and Jane, his wife, of Stafford, sold to Garret Gray, of Fauquier, for 810 current money of Virginia, the 100 acres taken up by Isaac Judd on the "north side of Cannon Run close by a path to the branch of Cannon Run." On October 9, 1780, "Marias Hansbrough of the County of Kentucky and the State of Virginia" sold to William Murphy of King George County, Virginia, (his niece's husband), 524 acres in Stafford on the branch of the Acquia Creek called Cannon's Run, adjoining Colonel William Robinson, and is now corner to Peter Hansbrough, Jr., and Edward Ralls, William Ralls, William Phillips road, Egan Hagan, Lewis Pritchard, John Peter, Garret Gray, and Cater's Road, the consideration being 2700 pounds current money of this State. This deed witnessed by Smith Hansbrough, James Gerrard, James Hansbrough, Peter Hansbrough, and Samuel Somers. Morias probably emigrated to what is now the State of Kentucky about 1780 or 1781, for in the Council Journal for June 23, 1781, a warrent was issued to "Marcus (Morias) Hanberry (Hansbrough)" for William Shannon of Kentucky for £333.0 upon account' in the same Journal, under the same date, "upon recommendation from the Court of Jefferson County . . . . .and Morias Hanbury (Hansbrough) are added to the Commissioners of the Peace and Oyer for the said county," and, in 1783, his name appears on the Register for the General Assembly of Virginia as a member of the House from Jefferson County, now Kentucky. On June 1, 1782, Morias upon payment of £200 was given a patent to 500 acres lying in the County of Jefferson (Kentucky) on the South side of Tinker's Creek, corner to William H. Helms. When the will of James Brown was proved in Shelby County, Kentucky, in November 1799, "Morius" went security for Daniel Colgen, the executor. In the will of "Morias Hansbrough" of Shelby County, Kentucky, proved in August 1800, he mentions his wife, Mary, sons, George, John and Joel, and daughter, Susanna; and he appointed his son, George, and John Underwood executors, their securities being P.
