"The English Ancestry of Thomas Hanchett,
Puritan Settler of Connecticut."
This book is available for immediate shipping.
This volume is the culmination of over one hundred years of research into the Hanchett Family of England from the Domesday Book up to the death of Thomas Hanchett in Suffield, Connecticut. While no definitive connection has been established between New and Old England, possible ancestors are carefully analyzed and long standing
myths thoroughly debunked.
The origin of the name Hanchett is carefully documented and the family's locations in Soutwestern Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Essex are well covered. Like most English families, the Hanchetts prosperity level ranged from landed gentry to yeomen to simple bakers of bread. This is not just a genealogical study, it includes many interesting stories of family experiences.
