      ASSOCIATIONS: Eglin (Hatherly) (Downe) (Hanford) Sillis was sister of TIMOTHY HATHERLY {1623, Plymouth} [GMB 2:876-81]. In his will of 20 December 1664, Timothy Hatherly made bequests to "Edward Jenkens his wife and children," to "Nicholas Wade his wife and children," to "Susanna the wife of Will[i]am Brookes and her children," to "Timothy Foster ... and to Elizabeth Foster," to "Mr. Thomas Hanford," and to "Fear Robinson now the wife of Samuell Baker ... and to the other three children of Isacke Robinson, John Isacke and Mercy" [GMB 2:879, citing MD 16:158-60, citing PCPR 2:2:34]. He does not state his relationship with these legatees, but they are grouped together, ahead of his stepchildren and other legatees.

      COMMENTS: On 10 April 1635, "Eglin Hanford," aged 46, and "2 daughters, Margaret Hanford," aged 16, and "Eliz[abeth] Hanford," aged 14, along with "Rodolphus Elmes," aged 15, and "Tho[mas] Stansley," aged 16, were enrolled at London as passengers for New England on the Defence [Hotten 56].

      Lettice Hanford clearly preceded her mother and younger sisters to New England, as she was married in Scituate on 8 April 1635, and her sister Susanna may also have come before 1635. How much before 1635 they arrived is not known.
      BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTE: In 1940 Mary Lovering Holman published "Hanford Items from English Records" [TAG 17:49-50], and in 1948 she published an account of Eglin Hanford and her family [Stevens-Miller Anc 485-89]. [3]
