Walter Hancock (1826 – 1871) and Louisa Hall (1833 -1887) (Callan) – London brickmaker to Hawke’s Bay pioneers.

I’ve been researching this one for some years now. Even with the arrival this week of the death certificate from New Zealand there is little I can conclusively prove regarding the origins of our Hancock origins.

I’ve been checking regularly through ‘Thru Lines” on Ancestry.com DNA looking for a connection to the (English based) Hancock line. I have been able to find DNA connections through both Walter and Louisa via their children Emma Sarah Hancock and Elizabeth Hancock.

I hope you enjoy the story that I’ve been able to put together for Walter and Louisa.
