|Notes: James was born in England and was a nephew of Thomas Hancock.|
James is often confused with his cousin, James Edward Hancock, who was a son of Thomas, was born in Forest, and who lived in Forest and Sarnia during some of the same years. Our current James had no middle name.
In 1881 James was 5 years old and living on his parents' 100-acre farm at Eastacott Hill, Mariansleigh, Devon, England, with six siblings.
In 1891 James was 15 years old and living with the Frederick Upham family at Bishops Nympton, Devon, England, and working there as a miller's apprentice.
By 1901 James was 25 years old, had immigrated to Canada, had married Sarah, and was working as a farmer in Bosanquet Township, Lambton County, Ontario. Sarah died in 1902.
In 1904 James married Mary — who was later known as Mary Hancock Griffin.
In 1916 James bought Lot 5 in the 6th Concession in the Township of Sarnia, consisting of 76.87 acres, for $3,000. At that time a mortgage of $2,500 was recorded on that Lot with James Hancock and wife as Grantor.
James passed on unexpectedly two weeks short of his 41st birthday. The funeral took place from his late residence, Lot 5 in the 6th Concession, London Road, in the Township of Sarnia on Wednesday, 15 Nov 1916, at 1 o'clock, to Beechwood Cemetery, Forest. James was buried next to his two wives and his son Wilbert.
