Genealogy {1}

The eldest [son of Alexander Hansard] was George Agar Hansard, author of 'The Book of Archery', London, circa 1841, and 'Trout and Salmon fishing in Wales', London circa 1834. He was born about 1796, and he married, on July 24th 1817, p Jane Racster, by licence, when he was described as a gentleman, bachelor, of St Paul's parish. Various publications refer to him as Eliza's brother though he is not listed as one of the children between whom Alexander's estate was to be divided, but he was left a sum of £20. This omission may have been on the grounds that he was already well established. Perhaps Jane, his wife, had private means.
