HiI also research Bancrofts and have a Grandfather Judge Samuel Bancroft b.12 July 1736 Reading, MA marr. Sarah Holt of Andover, MA. He was the son of Capt Samuel Bancroft b. 1715 and Lydia Parks; son of Capt Samuel Bancroft b.26 Dec 1693; son of Thomas Bancroft b. 1649 Dedham, MA; son of the immigrant Thomas Bancroft Judge Samuel Bancroft moved to Nova Scotia around 1761 with several family members.Most returned to Reading, MA but I find no information about Judge Samuel whether he stayed or returned.His son Jeremiah Bancroft stayed in Nova Scotia and is buried at Round Hill Cem, Annapolis Valley, N.S. along with many Bancroft descendants.There was a hint that he moved to another County in N.S. but there is no real information that he did and no death date.If you have some information I would appreciate it.
