Note on Husband: Nicholas HANSFORD - shared note

There is a generation gap between marriage date and first son, which suggests there may have been another son Nicholas. - the father of Mathias and John?. This is quite likely as the period from 1643-1660 was civil marriages only ant the parish register may not have been written up afterwards. Alternatively ther father Nicholas could hve been the son of another brother, such as John. The descendant line has not yet been confirmed as correct. There is a query over William Hansford c1706 - possibly an different William.
