Hamner Family History

Nicholas Hamner 111

Notes on Nicholas Jr.:
Received a portion of his father, Robert's, estate on the Hardware River. There he established a school and called it "Glendower" after Owen Glendower, last independent Prince of Wales, who married Margaret Hamner. Served in the Revolution and on April 14. 1781 was commissioned a captain in the Militia. Buried at the Hamner Family Burying ground of the home built by Nicholas III, near Little Carter's bridge, Albemarle County, VA.

   Marriage Information:
Nicholas married Agnes TOMPKINS, daughter of Giles TOMPKINS and Unknown, in 1767 in Albemarle County, Virginia. (Agnes TOMPKINS was born in Albemarle County, Virginia 14 and died in Albemarle County, Virginia 14.)

Son of Nicholas Hamner 111
William Hamner* b. 1730
m. Mary Elizabeth Henley
b. ca. 1732

Notes:William Hamner was the 5th son of Nicholas Hamner 111. He owned land [500 acres] bought from Thomas Fitzpatrick on the south fork of the hardware river, not far from Thomas Jefferson. He also acquired 900 acres more on the north fork, which he sold in 1782 to Colonel John Old. It is not known if he called his estate Glendower or not, but being of Welsh descent it is very probable that he did, since Margaret Hanmer, daughter of Sir David de Hanmer, married Owen Glendower, the self-proclaimed Prince of Wales, who led the Welsh revolution against Henry 4th from 1400 A.D. to 1409 A.D. and is still much revered by the Welch people
