About John Hanby

This is probably "the other John Hanby".

John Hanby "of Joseph" appears on Northampton County, VA tax rolls for the first time in 1811. Implies a birth date c. 1790 (and another John Hanby with whom he should not be confused).

There were several John Hanbys on the Eastern Shore of Virginia during the early 19th century, none of them of much importance and most of them too poor to pay any taxes. Accordingly, it is extremely difficult to sort out the relationships among them, and between them and other persons with the surname Hanby (or for that matter Handy).

It is probable that this John Hanby was related more or less closely to the John J. Hanby who married Rosanna Dalby, sired John Hazard Hanby, his brother Joseph, and at least two sisters, and moved to Portsmouth, VA, where he perished in the yellow fever epidemic of 1855. But exactly how they were related may never be known for certain.


John Hanby died before 13 February 1837 at Northampton Co, VA. It was on this date that administration on the estate of John Hanby was granted to Susan Hanby, widow of the dec'd. Bond $3,000. Appraisers: Robins Mapp, John Ewell, Robert C. Jacob and John Wilkins Jr. Inventory, Appraisement and Account of Sales taken on February 15, 1837. Recorded on June 11, 1838. Audit and Settlement.
