Charles Hansford

Charles Hansford lost his life during the insurrection of 1676 (Bacon's Rebellion),  When the executors of his estate, Charles Hansford and David Condon, they helped the widow to lease her residence in York County to the justices of the peace of that county to serve as a court-house. Part of the agreement was for the executors to furnish not ony accommodation for horses, but also a gallon of brandy during each session of the bench.  Source: Records of York County, vol.  1671-1695, page 165.
