About Dr. Lancelot Vance

A descendant of Bart Welch has provided the following information:


Additional information can be obtained from:


Beers Project, p. 54 (Be sure to view the Beers information at full magnification.)

The Beers project documents Dr. Lancelot Vance as the son of Rev. John Vans, which agrees with the information provided by the descendant of Bart Welch. It is also responsible for my revision of the death date, since it states that Dr. Vance was one of the defenders of Londenderry in 1689. (The prior date of death given was 1688.). Siege of Derry

Information given by Bart Welch establishes that Dr. Lancelot Vance had a son named John. This information will be used when discussing that profile.

p.s.: Unfortunately Bart is a far better source of information about the Vance family surname than he is about the Vance family surname. (This might be expected since his mother's maiden name was Vance.) Believe him when he says that Dr. Lancelot Vance had a wife named named Euphemia Vance (Murray) and a son named John Vance of Coagh. Do NOT believe what he has to say about the Jacksons--and in particular, don't believe him when he says that Andrew Jackson, 7th U.S. president, was related to the Vances. Instead, believe Jason Wills (C), who says that the father of Andrew Jackson Sr. was Hugh Jackson, NOT Dr. Joseph Jackson. Jason curates that president's surname all the way back to Richard Jackson I (1505-1562), so he ought to know.

p.p.s. Erica Howton pitched HER hat into the ring, checked the OFFICIAL pedigree for President Andrew Jackson, and she says that he IS related to the Vances. My apology, Bart--I should never have doubted you.
