FYI: Thomas Hansford was the son of John Han(s)ford who was Justice of York and arrived in Virginia before 1640. John was the son of William Handforde, merchant tailor of St. Mary Woolchurch, London, and the grandson of Robert Hansford who had married Thomasine, heiress of George Harewood, London. John was sponsored by Robert Wooler (Woller) of London along with Wooler's son (see will Sir Humhrey Handford)on the 2nd Jamestown Charter. Handfords owning an interest in The Virginia company.I have considerable information on the Handford merchants of London. I have undisputable proof to mid 15th c. It appears the St. Mary Wool Church Handfords are the descendans of Adam Handforde, merchant brewer, who lived in Upper Thames Street, on River Thames, in Parish St. Bernet's Wharf, in London. Adam's will was proved 1391.This is now at Blackfriars, River Thames, London. These Handfords were allowed in the visitations of the 16th c. to use the arms Honforth of the Cheshire familyHonforth, Handford. The Cheshire line is documented to before 1190 but I have been unble to prove a link. There were a number of minor royal marriages. I am a lineal connection, the name having become Hansford in this country. Though we live in B'ham, Al. USA my son was married at Manor Shobdon, the family seat of our Han(d/s)ford ancestors in Herefordshire. I recentely visited the Hanford seat of Handforth Hall, Cheshire, an Wollas Hall, Worcs. Glad to share any information. Bill Hansford,M.D.
