Hanbury
« on: Thursday 22 March 18 06:32 GMT (UK) »
Dear List,

 I just discovered rootschat, looks like a wonderful resource.
 
 The toughest problem in my tree are ancestors Thomas Hanbury (b about 1745, d. 1819 in Wolvesnewton, Mons.) He married Mary Hetherton in 1772 in Llansoy. I cannot find anything about their origin. There are various family rumors of links to the Pontypool family, but I have not been able to prove or disprove such a claim. Robin Thompson, FRS, a well known Canadian entomologist, diligently worked on this family (he is another descendant) in the 1930s and reached no clear conclusion. Id be most appreciative of any tips!)

Cheers, Dave
