Greetings message board readers,
Being one of the Hanmers myself, though having spent hardly any of my life in the UK, I was intrigued to discover more of our history when I lived in Somerset briefly in the early 1990s. As far as I know the entire family tree back to the 1300s is contained in Burke's Peerage, which most libraries will have or can bring in. Sir John Hanmer is stil alive and kicking in the hamlet of Hanmer, N Wales, which in 1990 produced 4 postcards; the local Anglican church lists several Hanmers who were ministers and its graveyard contains many more. I visited Hanmer in 1990 and saw the great seal of Owen Glendower, rebel Welsh prince who married Margaret Hanmer in the 1300s, and also saw several portraits of Hanmers by Gainsborough. There's lots of history in our small family. My goal is to eventually reproduce the entire family tree on a single sheet of paper using one of the better genealogy programmes.

Greetings Michael and several other recent
writers of Hanmer enquiries,
Sorry, but I don't have any access to the
information you need. BUT your local library,
if you live in North America or Western
Europe, either does or can get it in for you.
You need Debrett's Peerage, as late an
edition as possible. There you will find
the entire listing of the Hanmer family
going back to, I believe, the 14th Century. There is as yet no family tree made from this information, though one of my dreams is to make one using the most high-powered of the family tree programmes - on a single large sheet, complete with the coat of arms. Don't hold your breath - I live in the Caucasus and this dream won't be fulfilled soon.

A dream of mine is to put all of this information
on one large sheet as a family tree, using
one of the better tree programmes to do this.
But don't hold your breath.

Good luck,

Anthony Hanmer
