Autobiography of Edwin Hansford Rennolds Sr.
Chapter 3: The Hansford Family
... "Theodosius Hansford settled on the dividing ridge between the Potomac and Rappahannocks Rivers, from whose years steamers could be seen in both rivers in the winter time. His name was Theodosious Hansford, and his father's name was Stephen Hansford. He had a good classical education, owned a good farm supplied with slaves. He was a magistrate, with a life-tenure, and also a surveyor. He studied law, but did not practice but little.
In 1800 he was appointed Clerk of the State Senate, at a salary of ten dollars per day.He served in this capacity till his death in 1825.He wrote a plain hand, so plain even, as almost to be read as readily as print.
He was married twice. First to Miss Woodford who bore him three children, Eliza, Addison and Jefferson, and secondly to Miss Jane Thornly, who bore him three, Jane, Edwin and Laura. Eliza was never married. After her father's death she lived with an Aunt in Woodford Co., Ky., where she died about 25 years ago. She had a fine mind, was well-educated, and inherited all the pride of F.F.V. ancestry. She was devoted to her relatives.
Addison assisted his father in the office of clerk, for several years, and at his death succeeded him in the position, holding it till his own death in 1850*. He was a fine businessman, and accumulated a fortune (about a hundred thousand dollars). In his later years he succumbed to the drink habit. He married Miss Julia Wallace. His posterity consisted of two sons, Stephen and Addison, and Daughters. Stephen died unmarried.Addison married and reared a large family on the farm inherited from his father, and died several years ago."
