Descendants of James Hancock


James Hancock was a soldier in the 36th Regiment of Foot, and it is likely that he met his wife Elizabeth Daveau while stationed in Jersey. Although the 36th Regiment twice formed the island garrison in the 1870s and '80s, it is not known to have been in Jersey during the 1780s, but James could have been serving in another regiment then, or, as often happened, was part of a small detachment in the island in addition to the main garrison regiment. We are a little concerned about the accuracy of the two wives and families shown for his son James/Jacques
