HANVEY FAMILY
I would like to correspond, exchange data, and ideas with anyone interested or researching the Hanvey family (any and all branches). Especially, would like to exchange information on the ancestors or decendents of William Hanvey.WilliamHanvey was most likely born in County Down in the Kingdom of Ireland ca 1740, and was certainly the immigrant ancestor of the great Hanvey Family originating in the Colony of South Carolina. He and his wife, Sarah, whose maiden name is unknown, arrived with their young daughter, Jane, at Charles Towne in the Province of South Carolina on Thursday - 19 February 1767. Sarah was born ca 1741 and Jane was born ca 1764. William and his family were among a group of poor Irish Protestants who arrived on the ship, Earl of Hillsborough. The vessel had sailed from Belfast in the Kingdom of Ireland on 30 November 1766. William received a 250 acre Royal Land Grant in the Long Cane Section, near the Belfast Township of South Carolina and his decendents have spred to all parts of the county. I have over 6000 records and much reference data on individuals related to this line. I will gladly correspond with anyone interested in the Hanvey family.
