243. PETER HANSBROUGH: (223 Peter) Born October 11, 1796; died October 15, 1843. His early life was spent in King George where, in 1791, he was taxed on 1 white male, 1 negro, 1 young negro, and two horses. Like his father, he was a large investor in real estate. He once owned "Totter-down Hill," later renamed "Zhe Hol," a well known colonial home near Culpeper, Virginia. He lived in this house from 1792 to 1808. In 1812, he purchased the "Cole Hill" estate located about 1 ½ miles from Stevensburg. "Peter of Cole Hill," as he was known, possessed an immense landed estate, and always traveled in a coach and four with out-riders. Up to the day of his death, he wore knee britches and a powdered wig. He was known as a veritable grandee. He married Frances Anne Hooe, daughter of William Hooe of "Pine Hill," King George County.
