Before 1800 in US there were only 3 (?)FANSHAW groups:
The FANSHAWs in VA and NC who descend from Thomas FANSHAW and Mary HORNE of Lower Norfolk VA 1665. In NC records surname also appears as FANSHER and FANCHER.
The FANSEY/FANCEY/FANSHAWs in Long Island NY who descend from William FANSEY/FANSHAW in New Haven CT Colony ca 1664.
The FANSHAW/FANSHER/FANCHERs in CT and Westchester Co NY area who descend from John FANSHAW/FANSHER of Stamford CT ca 1730.
